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.

KraftowyJakup (221) - POLAND - MAR 15, 2017
Mocno fenolowe, przyprawowe, trochę estrów w postaci gumy balonowej, wysokie wysycenie, całkiem sporo pełni, alkokol dobrze schowany. Dość słodkie odczucie w ustach, ale raczej od drożdży, muśnięcie słodu w tle, posmak gumy balonowej na finiszu. Dużo się tu nie dzieje, ale jest nieźle.

Sublime taste, which attacks you with coffee and foam. It’s really nice though I wouldn’t call it amazing.

dunklermessias (87) - GERMANY - MAR 13, 2017
0,33l Bottle. Pours withs dark amber color and a small white head, wich dissapears very quickly. The Bleue has a very fine malty smell with dark honey, lighty caramel and some undefined fruits. Taste is malty and sweet, some herbst an nice almond/caramel feel at the palate. The cabonation remebers a little bit on champagner.

Tried 330 ml and 750ml (Grande Réserve) at home. As usual, the larger the bottle the better. Roasted-malty, brown, medium sweet beer. Totally recommended on its larger format.

Looks really good when poured into the glass, with a dark amber colour and a big beige head, which maintains itself during the drinking session. After it sits a couple of minutes, the aroma starts to get more fragrant and floral: brown sugar, a bit rosy (like in the description), fresh yeast, caramel. Smells really nice. Taste is sweet and spicy. Easy to drink, alcohol is felt just at the end. Taste is great: caramel, licorice - sour cherry, almonds. It’s interesting how almost every sip is different. Great beer!
