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.

valderwort (7) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2013
First smell is apples, baking spices and alcohol. Initial flavors are spices which level out to alcohol and roasted malts. Very light body. Very good beer, but probably not the best of it’s genre. Worth picking up though.

pgliszczu (70) - - AUG 20, 2017
Aromat: Karmel, fenole i alkohol. Wcześniej ajkby trochę skunksa, ale na szczęście uleciało. jeszcze było trochę owoców
Wygląd: Brunatne, ogromne przegazowanie więc piana wielka, ale brak lacing’u.
Smak: Jest w sumie średnio słodko. W smaku głównie karmel i trochę skórek chleba i lekka owocowość. Fenole są, ale nie bardzo dużo. Jest przyjemnie w sumie, ale nieco pustawo. A no i jest metaliczne, więc słabo. Generalnie jest przykryte, ale jest.
Odczucie: Dosyć wytrawnie, wysoko wysycone, nawet bardzo. Gładko, ale wszystko psuje niestety wysycenie.
Podsumowanie: Tragicznie nie jest. Fajna karmelowość, trochę chleba, owoce. Fenole także przyjemne, nie jest bardzo ciężko, ale też generalnie lekka pustka to jest. Jest też metal to słabo, tradycyjne przegazowanie też.

beern (125) - Alabama, USA - AUG 19, 2017
Pours a dark whiskey color and is very hazy with a two finger white head. Tastes of spicy malt with lively carbonation upfront with a nice banana, clove and bubblegum finish. It’s like drinking two different beers from start to finish. It’s semi-sweet and medium to full-bodied.

taunusmies (376) - FINLAND - AUG 17, 2017
Dark brown colour, large thick head. Malts with yeast and bread. Notes of liquorice, cough syrup, dark fruits, raisins. Medium bodied, lively mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden, nice warming effect but no disturbing taste.

Fles gedeeld door LiekevdV in Luxemburg. Het is een stevigschuimend donker bier. De smaak is wat bitter met gebrande mout en drop.

dreamer (204) - PORTUGAL - AUG 15, 2017
Dark brown red color, very cloudy. Medium tan head, persistent till the end. Medium carbonation. Full and creamy body. Aroma is malt caramel, wood, light chocolate, spicy, yeast and dark fruits (dried plums?). Taste is caramel, dried plums, cloves (and other spices), bread and some bitterness. Aftertaste is sweet and very long.

Bitek (728) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 15, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2017 Karmel, owocowe estry, przyprawy, trochę alkoholu. Średnio treściwe, półsłodkie. Niska goryczka, wysokie wysycenie. Fajne, chociaż liczyłem na trochę bardziej złożone i intensywne piwo.

dorain (423) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2017
Aus der Flasche (Version 2011) im 2017-08 getrunken. Hier wieder so ein wunderbares durchgereiftes Trappistenbier mit vollen Malznoten. Durch die lange Flaschenreifung wirkt es nicht mehr wie ein Bier sondern erinnert fast an ein vollmundigen Rotwein. Klasse

A melhor chimay, o azedume se harmonizando com o dulçor é algo incrivel. Encorpada, mas com alta drinkability, uma obra prima
