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.

brigg (708) - New York, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Dark brown body with a medium, receding tan head. A floral, and fruity aroma with sugar, a hint of alcohol, and roasted malt. The flavour is sweet, has dark fruit, pepper. Alcohol is evident but subtle. Some nuttiness in the aftertaste as well as fruit. Medium to full bodied and carbonaceous.There is a lot to it, but it is very balanced.

xpimptastikx (103) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 28, 2008
Pours a beautiful hazy medium brown with an inch of nice khaki head. A good amount of sediment in this bottle. Smells like figs, grapes, dates, it’s dark and sweet. Taste is not as fruity as the smell leads on. A good body and feeling in the mouth. Excellent drinkability for the abv and flavor. This beer will always be a belgian favorite.

Steely (241) - , SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2008
Pours thick hazy brown with a foamy tan head. Light floral aroma with hints of yeast, caramel and malt. Round, rich flavor of perfectly roasted malt, sweet fudge and raisins in total harmony. Finish is slightly vinous with a touch of alcohol. Very well balance with a thich, full mouthfeel with bubbly carbonation.

This dark, cloudy ale does not boast any overwhelming flavors. Instead, it provides a deep, smooth sensation that seemingly could even complement a meat dish. Hints of chocolate are present along with alcohol. Leaves a great aftertaste.

This pours dark with a small head that does have a little lacing. The aroma is fruit and malts with a little yeast. This hits the tongue and instantly satisfies and keeps on going as it hite the back of the tongue. This is the best of the Chimays and a very good bear for any type. The monks do things right in Belgium.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2013 330 ml bottle. L09-328. BBE 2014. (Border Shop) Fehmarn, Germany.
Dark brown colour with a small light tan creamy head. Dark fruits, sweetness, mild yeast, malt and The flavour is dark fruits, dried fruits, sweetness, malt, mild bitterness, yeast and alcohol. Very enjoyable. Maybe a little bit less alcohol and this would be perfect.
