Chimay Bleue (Blue)

Dark in color. Very cloudy with a quickly disappearing head. Very berry nose as it warms.
Subtle citrus flavor, slightly bitter but not offensive.
Citrus beginning, hoppy middle with a vanilla finish.
As it warms this beer gets sweeter with a berry flavor.

Very dark muddy color. Head dissipates very quickly.
Slight citrus aroma, with a berry nose as it warms.
Sweet tingle on the lips. Vanilla and citrus middle, berry (of some kind), and hop finish.
Very nice beer.

Chimay Bleue (Blue)

A full, light tan coloured head which leaves a thick ring, on a very dark red/brown and slightly cloudy beer.
The aroma was fairly subdued but consisted of berries, citrus, and perhaps some raisin or fig. You could smell the alcohol but it is by no means overpowering.
It's feel is very creamy, rich and thick. You know there is something in your mouth.
Now to the taste. Citrus, berries, raisin, roasted malt, and a hint of chocolate. There is some gentle bitterness to help blend this all into a great beer.
The citrus/berry taste leads, followed by the roasted malt, it's finish is chocolate, some bitterness and a hint of alcohol while the aftertaste is sparkling citrus and berries.
This is a lovely blend of tastes, a very pleasing beer. The high alcohol content (9%) is hidden, but there.
I would like more, wish I had some.

I will buy this again often.
