I finally thought I should get around to reviewing my old standby, Chimay Blue. In Japan, this beer is probably THE most accessible of the Belgians (with Duvel a close second). You can pretty much buy this anywhere. Its also relatively reasonable...9 dollars for 750ml.
Appearance: Caramel brown.
Smell: Dark fruits, toffee. Grapes, with a hint of something zesty underneath that I cant quite put my finger on.
Taste: Simply excellent. More dark fruits with an enjoyable, lingering bitterness. Alcohol is very well hidden.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth and easy drinking
Drinkability: A true classic that is deserving of all the accolades it has received.
Serving type: bottle
