There is no perfect beer or ale! But this one is close. A true gift of God made by his servants. Bought a 750ml for about $15. Worth every penny. The Blue is a real treat. Better to leave in the glass a few minutes and let it start to warm a bit to release all of its potential and some of the CO2. Smooth as silk and full mouth feel with a hint of the strong alcohol content. Add this one to your bucket list.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cl bottle, Vintage 2015. Served in Trappist chalice. Poured a very dark brown with a small frothy one finger ivory head. Aromas of sweet caramel, flowers, vanilla, cherries, banana, dark fruit, candy. Taste: Caramel, vanilla, candy sugar, dark fruits, banana, coriander. This is one fantastic tasting brew! Medium to full body. A very spicy, sweet frothy mouthfeel with a dry bittersweet finish. The best of all the Chimay!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Au début perçue comme banale
Cette brune et tout devenue tout simplement une vrai bière de repas, comme un bon vin
Incontournable mais finalement pas si facile à boire que cela.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber/brown with thick off-white head. Lots of stuff going on in the aroma. I mostly sense cookies, banana and yeast though. The taste is firstly sweet followed by a bitter sharpness that seems delivered by the carbonation. Great full bodied and full flavored beer. A bit too carbonated for what best suits a full bodied beer in my opinion.
