COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned - 150 cl, 75 cl, and 33 cl bottles. Named Grande Réserve in 75 cl bottles, and Magnum Grande Réserve in 150 cl bottles.
Chimay Blue is principally distinguished by its character of a strong beer. This is a beer whose fragrance of fresh yeast with a light, flowery rosy touch is especially pleasant. Its flavour, noticed when tasting it, only accentuates the pleasant sensations perceived in the aroma , while revealing a light but pleasant touch of roasted malt. This top fermented Trappist beer, refermented in the bottle, is not pasteurised.

Barwa ciemno br?zowa z bordowymi prze?witami. Piana w kolorze z?amanej bieli, ?rednio wysoka i nie trwa?a. Aromat ziemisty z mocnymi nutami palonych ziaren kawy, delikatnie ciemne owoce. W smaku bardzo podobnie, palone ziarna kawy, intensywne nuty ziemiste, przypominaj?ce spalon? ziemi?, marcepan. Calo?? okraszona jest rozgrzewaj?cym alkoholem, szlachetnym alkoholem. Nasycenie ?rednie w kierunku do niskiego.

Bursztynowe, nalało się praktycznie bez piany. W aromacie sporo suszonych owoców, figi, daktyle, ciut moreli. Delikatnie przyprawowe akcenty też się pojawiają. W smaku gładkie, bardzo mocno owocowe, zdecydowanie słodkie.

Bottle. Fosdem. Unpoured. Scent is slightly peppery. Taste is lovely soft cloves on ale. Finish is dry. Great, if a little simple.

Bottle at home from Auchan. Expiry date: 2021. Bottle from 2016. Pours dark amber-reddish brown, big foam, which I like. Tastes like roasted malts, caramel. Sweet and mellow. Medium carbonation. Big and enjoyable. Very good.

Dark golden redish brown, minimal tan head that quickly disappears and no lacing. Chocolate, caramel, sweet fig, yeast & mild spice on the nose. Taste follows. Replete, smooth & balanced. Great brew.

Zajímavé pivo, i když to není můj styl tak musím hodnotit objektivně , tak na polotmavé pivo výborný říz i jemná hořkost. Barva pěkná a vůně osvěžující.

Bursztynowe, nalało się praktycznie bez piany. W aromacie sporo suszonych owoców, figi, daktyle, ciut moreli. Delikatnie przyprawowe akcenty też się pojawiają. W smaku gładkie, bardzo mocno owocowe, zdecydowanie słodkie. Niby nudna Belgia, ale piło mi się to naprawdę przyjemnie. Gładka faktura, zero alkoholu, zdecydowanie fajna rzecz.
