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.

Nose of fresh pear and caramel. Pour is brown with thick white head that dissipates quickly with little to no lacing. Taste is crisp, fruity with sweet malt and hints of molasses. Smooth mouthfeel with nice tingle on the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2012-11-19: En från 2003 testad mot en 2012. Färgen är mörkare, skummet mindre. Doften är gigantisk och har mycket mer av honung och bivax än 2012. Även i smaken finns honung och bivax, övermogen frukt, dessertvin typ madiera. Vanlig (nu 2012) blå som brukar kännas tung och söt känns frisk och fräsch jämfört med 2003. 2003 har fått en mycket komplex samt stor (för att inte säga gigantisk) smak och doft. Jag gillar verkligen dessertvinstonerna. Egentligen ger lagringen en helt annan, och i mitt tycke fantastisk, öl.

La Chimay bleue est brune, très belge d’abbaye, bonne bien sûr et assez forte tout de même.

Barwa ciemna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana wysoka, gęsta i drobna. Aromat głównie ciemnych i czerwonych owoców. Dochodzi delikatny karmel. W smaku gładkie, alkohol świetnie ukryty. Pijalne.

Odličan, šteta što su ove pive u malim bocama i sto im je cijena kao litra solidnog vina

Aroma: plenty. Hints of caramel and red fruits. Also malt and yeast. Taste: complex for starters. Sweet brown sugar. Slight bitterness. Can also taste wood, like oak or something. Palate is pretty thick/sticky with medium to high carbonation. Good beer.

2012 bottle opened 2017. Complex nose. Wholemeal bread, with raisin, ripe stone fruit and some molasses notes. Medium body, mostly sweet taste with subtle bitterness. Goes down very gently. Well balanced. Light finish with no bitterness. The malt and yeast do all of the talking in this beer.

Personally i don’t think that the foam is generated by re-fermentation in the bottle ... anyway the beer is balanced and the superior alcohol is not invasive
