bottled: 15/II/17

Deze 2017 editie van de Blauwe gerijpt op vaten is een uitstekende combinatie van de Blauwe Chimay en rum.

Dit evenwicht tussen volmondigheid en de krachtige smaak komt het best tot uiting in het bier eens het tussen 6 maanden tot een jaar op fles is. Voor deze editie zijn de volgende vaten gebruikt : 36% Franse eik 42% Amerikaanse eik 22% Rum vaten

oblaten (20) - SPAIN - SEP 16, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2017 Botella 75cl. La chimay blue normale de 33cl adquiere un toque más fuerte y un cuerpo mas pesado y añejo en esta gran reserva en barrica. Sin duda una buenísima cerveza aunque prefiero la blue normale.

FatPhil (16671) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 30, 2017
750ml bottle (RBESG2017 Grand Tasting) (7:4:7-:4:13=3.5)
Very sweet pruney aroma. Sweet malty taste, maybe something solventy coming from the rum barrel perhaps. Sweetness abounds. Too much rum influence, but still very solid. Nowhere near as good as the base beer would have been without the barrels though.

3.3
Marduk (8085) - Reval, ESTONIA - AUG 15, 2017
750ml bottle (RBESG Grand Tasting 2017). Clear chestnut color. Tiny size, off-white head, stays as a ring. Metallic, yeasty, sweet, caramel and alcohol in aroma. Plastic, grainy, sweet, yeasty, herbal in taste. Plastic, sweet and alcohol in aftertaste. Drinkable brew.

Eructoblaster (4305) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2017
Bottle - 750ml. Cloudy brown body with an average, off-white foamy head. Rich malty/hoppy aroma with rhum, woody, and yeasty hints. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries yeasty, rhum, woody, and fruity notes. Alcohol is subtle and texture is soft. Ends with a long, warming bittersweet finish. Awesome.

JefVerstraete (3516) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2017
Sample from tderoeck. Many thanks! Dark brown colour, creamy beige foam. Plums, raisins, caramel, brown sugar, light notes of oak and rum. Good but misses some complexity, might become better with age.
