Foamy cream-colored head on a hazy reddish brown body. Aroma was initially more hoppy than I expected, then with some time displayed sweet red fruits that became more and more apparent. Fairly carbonated on the tounge and medium-bodied. Smooth and a little yeasty. Flavor is subdued, but good. A very pleasant beer, but not very complex.

Mon premier Chimay que j,ai bu, mailleur que la blanche, car je la trouve moin amère et plus riche; un peu sucré et caramelisé. JHunter (676) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 22, 2006

Pours a hazy brown with an average off white lightly lacing head. Aroma of dark fruits, candy sugar and a bit floral. Flavor was yeasty, lightly fruity, nutty and a little metallic. A little thin. therodm (1) - USA - JAN 22, 2006 does not count
Lovely color once poured. Very nice 1 inch head, lacey when finished. Tasted yeasty and was very smooth. I enjoyed this beer although was my first, will drink again for sure.

Dirty red-brown beer with a nice off white head. Aroma is malty and light fruity. It has a good nutty caracter and a maltyness. Taste is very refreshing for this style. It has a nice earthy touch, a fine fruityness and a great nutty feeling. In the finish there is a subtile bitterness.. BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2006 [bottle] Very cloudy, reddish color with a huge, cottonish head. Flavors are very complex.. funky yeast, sweet frutiness, and very subtle alcohol content. Strong carbonation. This is a very fine beer. jb (3304) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Murky orange-brown with tan head. The head stayed till the end. Sour yeasty aroma with some sweet notes. Palate was a surprise with maltiness, caramel, lots of carbonation and yeast. To me its an honest well-made beer. Siroy (220) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2006

Everything has been said on this. Lets just say that it’s another great trappist. Fruity nose.. plum/berry. Malt hits first then a bitter hint get noticed. Fine beer overall. To my opinion, the palate is the only deceiving part of the beer.. I guess i had high expectation for that beer but i find the body a little light, the texture thin and the finish abrupt.. chicagobears (474) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2006 Complex taste. Fruity tasting , mostly apricot and maybe a hint of plum, some spices that are unknown to me. Yeast setiment at bottom of bottle. Beautiful hazy, dark copper color. My first Chimay and boy have I’ve been missing out. One bottle will warm you up nicely on a cold winter night. Can’t wait to try the Blue next week.
