"The Chimay Blue Cap, 'baptized' 'Grande Réserve' 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. It is served ideally at cellar temperature (50 to 54 °F)." —brewer
"A tan thunderhead of foam rests atop this bronze ale. Smells of melon, flowers, fresh herbs; one of the most beguiling bouquets in beer. At 9% alcohol, almost wine-like. Opulent, sweet, honey-wheat flavors envelop the palate at entry, then at midpalate tastes of pears and peaches are added. Finishes sweet, ripe and fruity." —P.P., Wine Enthusiast Magazine
