All I'll say is that it's a 9%, dark beer which doesn't taste like a dark beer. It's really light and is not too strong. Frankly I find it almost perfect!
It's days like these when I say "Oh, the Hell with it! I live in a crazy part of the world, and I'm going to treat myself to a Chimay Blue!"
Weighing in at 9% ABV, Chimay Blue is the most "regal" offering of the Chimay repoitre. Introduced in the 1940's, Chimay Blue was originally a seasonal Christmas ale. However, due to it's popularity, it soon became available year round.
Being an extreme advocate of Belgian ales, I have to say that this is one of the best on the market today. It has a slightly sweet/floral bouquet; it is somewhere between ruby-dark brown to obsidian in color; there is a slight sweetness to the flavor, with notes of pepper, and a clean finish.
It may sound a little bit silly, but every time I embibe the Blue Chimay, I go into a little reverie in which I become philosophical; truly not all alcohols are the same!
Chimay Trappist ales are a one-of-a-kind ambrosia; I've been a fan of their ales for over 15 years, and I highly recommend them.
This beer is probably one of, if not the best example of it's style in the world. I should caution that this type of beer is somewhat of an acquired taste and I know that a lot of people more familiar with generic lagers are put off by flavours they don't normally find in beer. Don't expect to knock these back from the bottle, pour a glass, sip, savour and enjoy.
