I tried my first Chimay Blue with a hummus and tahini wrap at European Street Cafe in Jacksonville, FL. 12 oz. bottle in a glass beer tumbler.
A: Pours a nice deep red/brown with very little head and a slight halo of lacing. Murky brown in the glass with micro-carbonated fizz.
S: Subtle, there are notes of pine hops with cinnamon caramel hops.
T: Not sweet. Again, subtle and restrained. Perhaps a little too balanced. Alcohol is masked with a dry finish.
M: Medium bodied, goes down nicely with just the right amount of carbonation.
D: Very drinkable and paired nicely with my dinner. There just wasn't enough flavor as the meal completely overwhelmed this beer.
Serving type: bottle
