I've had chimay blue a few times now and all in all its quite a good brew. The most recent time I had this one was in France on the night of the Fête de la Musique (Paris Street Music Festival) at a small bar in Paris. I was very excited to see it on the menu since most of the average bars in france(like the states) host the European versions of macro brewed beers. I poured this one from a 33cl/330ml/11.2oz bottle into a fairly decent sized tulip glass.
Appearance: Dark hazy brown with a thick cream colored head quite nice looking overall.
Aroma: smells of caramel brown sugar, caramel, plums, cloves, and cinnamon.
Taste: very full bodied in flavor and as the nose suggests tastes of, caramel, plums, prunes, slight fig tastes, accompanied by tastes of cinnamon cloves and nutmeg.
Feel: Thick in texture and slightly sticky with medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Goes down quite easily especially since the alcohol shows no presence in flavor at all and after you have one you REALLY want more.
Very good overall.
Serving type: bottle
