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.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2009 From bottle. Hazy amber colour with a thin frothy head and lace. Aroma of caramel, fruit, raisins. rich in flavour. Tangy zest yet smooth. Hints of earth and oak barrels.

bottle- reddish/brown. substantial white head, with good retention. carbonation was also substantial. flavor was that of some nuttyness, dark fruits, cherries, yeast, and alcohol. Was not blown away, but admittedly, this is not my favorite style.

Dark red body with a thick foamy head thats last pretty long and shrinks to a thin layer of foam. Aroma is of plums and dried fruits, little yeasty and a strong sour smell. Flavor is of dried fruits and plums, was very sourish in the begingin but that disapeard when it warmed up. Palate is thin.

Bottle courtesy of Biggmike. This beer poured a medium brown color with a good off-white head. Flavors of dark malt and fruit. Great mouthfeel and perfect carbonation. This is really an excellent beer.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2007 Why spend 12 dollars on a 750 ml. bottle of beer? Because it’s Chimay Blue Cap. Really one of the true classics Blue Cap really does a good job of promoting the high quality reputation the monks have made for themselves when it comes to making beer.

Russo (2014) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - JUN 25, 2007
Bottle 0,33cl. Brown/red color, with a persistent beige head, aroma like chocolat and roasted malt, high carbonation. Flavor like roasted malt and notes of aclohol, mouthfeel is good, the bitterness is fine. Cerveja marrom avermelhada, espuma bege e persistente, aroma de chocolate e malte torrado o mesmo para o sabor e com notas de álcool. Deixa um gosto amargo e gostoso na boca. EXCELENTE!

330 mL bottle. Dark brown with small fluffy light tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, sugar, yeast, and alcohol. Satin bright palate. Taste of brown sugar, molasses, slight roastiness, and an alcoholic warmth to the finish.
