750ml corked and caged poured into a snifter. Chimay Blue pours earth-brown with red highlights. It looks like a caramel covered red delicious apple. A pleasant, fairly large, nearly white head arises and subsides with haste. Carbonation races to the top long after the beer has been poured.
This one smells like dark sweet fruits, Belgian sugars and yeasts. Apple, grapes and raisons come to mind. A spicy profile lingers in the background.
Taste is reminiscent of the nose as far as the dark fruits are concerned; however the taste is less sweet than the nose would lead you to believe. Undertones of spice are quite nice and become more noticeable as it warms.
Drinkability is very high and the alcohol is really only noticed in the warming effect. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth; medium bodied and has a somewhat dry finish.
