Only one beer comes close to the Chimay Premiere. That's the Chimay Blue. The aroma, the color, the taste. I cannot begin to explain my love for this beer. It's a sit down, smoke a cigar and enjoy type beer. It can be enjoyed at room temperature, however, I prefer it pretty darn cold. Great with strong cheeses, stews, and nuts. jedimasternick (96) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 4, 2002
I had the opportunity of having this aged 2 years and let me tell you it was like drinking the beer of the gods.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2003 This is the ale that all others should be measured against. Absolutely perfect balance of spices, malts and creaminess. Great mellow attack, full soft complex middle, with some tones of bitterness, and spices. Fruitiness around the middle palate and then a burst of bitters and creamy ending.
This is perfection in a bottle, and cellar bottles for future consumption. They get mellower and longer with age. What a prize. bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - OCT 5, 2004
This beer is wonderful, not as strong as the grand reseve but still has full flavor. You have to have a glass for this, the sedement is rather bad at the bottle of the bottle jahughey (65) - Franklin, Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2005 Quite possibly the best beer in the world. I absolutely love the Blue on a special occasion, but this ale has no peers in terms of balance and drinkability, being simultaneously estery, malty, slightly hoppy, with a perceived alcohol, yet eerily drinkable. A truly sublime drinking experience in a Chimay goblet with good company. It gets no better. mcalli (1) - USA - MAY 26, 2006 does not count
I have scoured the world and found no better beer. Complexity abounds. There is a distinctly different start, middle, and finish which goes through sweet, dry, fruity, bitter, and malt. Mufasa7270 (7) - Covington, Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2006 does not count
Pours deep red & brown with an off-white head. I got this in The Sundial Restaurant in Atlanta. The waiter presented this beer like it was an expensive bottle of wine. I loved the taste and feel of this beer. it went down smooth with a long lasting flavor. A must have!!
