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.

This is simply one of the best beers in the world that everyone should’ve tried. The dark colour, with the amber touch, great strong head that doesn’t dissapear and the great aroma is only the startup to a great beer experience. It’s a beer to combine with a nice steak or Belgium stew, or to drink on it’s own in the evening with some cheese. It’s a heavy bittersweet taste, with a smooth aftertaste. One of the better abbey beers.

Aromat chlebowy, drożdżowy, trochę karmelu. W smaku dużo ciemnego chleba i przyjemnego, rozgrzewającego alkoholu. Duże wysycenie. Wydaje się mniej złożony niż Chimay Tripel, ale podeszło mi bardziej. (Ocena przeniesiona z innego piwnego portalu).

legendy się nie recenzuje, z nią się należy spotkać, wypić i oblizać się albo nie. kanoniczny wyrób trapistów, światowy top dostępny masowo, typowy mocny Belg z estrami, fenolami i nutami drożdżowymi - jeśli kogo to zachwyca, ma czego chciał. klasztorny klasyk.

Chimay Blue is lighter and more subtle than its color and gravity would lead you to believe. The nose and front end are nutty and crisp. The finish and warming make it satisfying going down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2018 330ml bottle. 2017 vintage. Dark brown with beige head. Beautiful carbonation and mouthfeel as per all Chimay beer I’ve tried. Taste is plum, caramel, spices, boozy but quaffable. Lovely business.

Aromat: karmel, ciasto, pumpernikiel, lekkie rodzynki, moze lekka sliwka, chyba lekko metaliczne. Wyglad: miedziany, piana szybko się dziurawi, ale pozostaje trochę na koniec. Smak: slodkawe goryczka zaznaczona. Odczucie w ustach: wysycenie wysokie, troche taniczne. Ogolnie: przyjemne piwko.

Barwa brunatne, piana duża. Aromat ciemnych owoców, trochę estrowy, lekkie fenole. W smaku ciemne owoce, lekki karmelek, fenolowo i drożdżowo. Fajne pifko.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2018 Oui, une bonne bière d’abbaye, au nez flatteur, mais une déception en bouche par rapport à sa notoriété : pour moi, manque de complexité, de longueur en bouche. C’est bien fait mais je reste sur ma faim. Ne vaut pas une « Paix Dieu ».
