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.

Bottle share with cmr1517 and my brother-in-law. Pours a murky reddish-brown with a diminishing creamy white head. Strong belgian yeast and caramel scent throughout. Tingly malt taste with a strong, sweet alcohol finish. Very good and will stop looking over it when I’m out bottle shopping.

What a beer. Expensive, but worht the price of admission. Deep brown color with an even deeper aroma. You can smell it long before you tase it. Very strong maltiness with loads of carbonation. Finish lasts long after you swallow. Outstanding.

Dark Brown, high brownish head. Aroma is not that perfect, but Appearance, Palate and Flavor... oh my... my favourite beer. I’ll write more detailed description later.

Dark amber with a reddish tint and an off-white head. Spicy, sweet aroma with hint of alcohol. Flavor is of dark ripe fruits, sweet malt, and a somewhat bitter finish. Any alcohol flavor is hidden by the thick malt. It’s quite carbonated with a dry mouth feel.

DO NOT DRINK COLD!! If taken cold it starts of Raunchy and stale, metalic and alcohol tasting and very earthy, vegetable flavors stand out so does the beet candy. When its left to warm, the sweet malts stand out with a nice woody background, spices, honey and yeast are present too. The palate becomes smoother as too does the carbonation. It still finishes a bit twingy and vegetabaly but very faintly soo.

lucien (42) - ARGENTINA - MAY 21, 2007
Dark copper colour with red ambar tones. Sweet aroma. Taste is caramel, malty and the typical chimay yeast. Fresh and citric. A little bit overcarbonatated. Too much fizz tends to ruin a beer, but this one is very good.

4.5
Prcaus (159) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 21, 2007
20 oz Bottle-Total Wine and Spirits Cherry Hill NJ. Dark brown pour with a slight head into a Trappist glass. Solid fruity aroma which is not overpowering. Flavoring is sweet and malty, finishes very enjoyably and truly and excellent beer. Stronger than the white, with an enjoyable higher alcohol content.
