The Chimay Blue Cap, "baptized' "Grande Reserve" in 750 ml bottles is a dark Trappist beer with a powerful aroma, the complex flavour of which improves across the years. It was first brewed as a Christmas beer, explaining the presence of a "vintage". This authentic Belgian beer, whose tinge of fresh yeast is associated with a light rosy flowery touch, is particularly pleasant. Its aroma, perceived as one enjoys it, only accents the delightful sensations revealed by the odour, all revealing a light but agreeable caramelized note.View all products by ChimayCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

Excellent. Full rich taste. The way a beer should taste. I wish you had the other Chimays. They are all good. Not for wimps.

Excellent and well rounded flavor profile. Nice and malty with subtle hop character.

Just superb! I love this Belgian style brew. It’s the best out there, as far as I am concerned. It’s my “go to,” for special occasions.
Chimay Grand Reserve -Gold & White text on treble label-- is simply, the best brew there is! It is pricey, but worth the indulgence once in a while ....for the mmmmm. Love it.

You have to like beers with flavor to appreciate this. If you love bud, pacifico, stella, or anything close to those, pass on this unless you are looking to step up. It's also best to drink from a wide brimmed glass. This is non filtered and I believe bottle conditioned. That means its cloudy and there will be a residue left at the bottom of the bottle. You will see some of the brewing ingredients swirling around your glass after you pour. That's a good thing. The aromas mix with the flavor and high alcohol content gives off fumes as you drink it to create an impressive and delicious brew. Chimay stands unchallenged in my book.
