This most recent Chimay (Blue) was poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass (Long and skinny). The restaraunt we were at only had this type of glass.
A: Got a big frothy head due to the style of the glass (I think), light tan lacing throughout. The color was reddish brown and opaque.
S: Sweet like caramel, hoppy, and fruity. Wonderful to say the least.
T: Starts out sweet and fruity, and leaves you with just enough hop and yeast flavor.
M: A little too carbonated, but maybe I just didn't let it breathe enough.
D: Smooth throughout. One was great with a meal, but the larger bottle would be a great appetizer.
Overall, not the first time I have had this one, and it definitely won't be the last. Belgian ales are becoming my favorite style of beer.
Serving type: bottle
