WillemsUrenkel (938) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 1, 2015
0,5 l bottle bought in a danish supermarket. Dark red brown and clear in the glass. Small beige head. Belgian style malty on the nose. Taste is mid sweet and fruity malty, later more malty, with a fruity sweetness and some bitterness. Not really the expected complexity, especially in the aftertaste.

TorbenJensen (528) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2015
Pronounced fruit flavor and thin, but persistent foam. Clear Belgian dubbel with great malt sweetness which also has easy burned notes, and lots of caramel. Dried fruits, such as prune and raisin, forms a fine slightly acidic and fruity balance to the malt. Slightly vinous richness, but the dark malts and the fruit is still in focus throughout. It is an extremely well-brewed Belgian dubbel, which is quite on a par with most Belgian ones. The only thing I do not understand is the name. It’s called Blå Chimpanse because of the link to the famous Trappist beer Chimay Bleu. I can not really taste the connection. The Blå Chimpanse is a delightful and tasty ale, but a Chimay it will never be.

Hermod (4364) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2015
50cl bottle. Dark brown, thin off white head. Bready malty, sweet fruity, earthy aroma. Flavor has sweetness, caramel and light bready notes. Not much Belgian in this beer...

Decent enough take on a Danish version of Chimay Bleu. Has some of the esters going for it, but does not reach particularly high levels.

Rune (9367) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2015
500ml from tap at Gæstgivergården. Clear rosewood coloured body. Patchy surface, spotty lacing. Aroma of mild brown malts. Smooth malt driven taste of caramel and liquorice. Dried fruity touch beneath.Tolerably sweet finish. Rounded on the swallow. Fine partner to my herring sandwich lunch (Helsingør 30.04.2015).

Milter (337) - Nyborg, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2015
Pours clear brown with medium beige head that disappears quickly. Very low carbonation. Aroma is spicy, sweet ripe tropical fruits, sweet malts, sweet alcohol, maybe an off-hint of old cellar, but nothing too bad. Taste is sweet, sweet and sweet. Did I mention sweetness? Not sure any hops were used to brew this beer, no bittering ones for sure. Palate is heavy, a bit oily, flat. Clearly wants to be a Chimay, but somehow fails to find the right balance.

Bottle from Irma, DK, 6.5% ABV. Pours clear brown with medium beige head that disappears quickly. Very low carbonation. Aroma is spicy, sweet ripe tropical fruits, sweet malts, sweet alcohol, maybe an off-hint of old cellar, but nothing too bad. Taste is sweet, sweet and sweet. Did I mention sweetness?

martin00sr (1589) - Haderslev, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2014
Clear brown, light beige head. Fruity, yeasty aroma. Flavour is similar plus caramel, spice. Rather one-dimensional, but certainly drinkable.

Desverger (3969) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle from Irma - fuzzy brown pour with a beige head. Dark sweet malty aroma and taste, caramel, toffee, sweet yeasty, some dried fruit, some basic herbs and spice. Pretty basic affair.
