Chimay Blue

I’m sure the blue cap version of Chimay is not new, but I’ve only seen it on a regular basis recently at the LCBO. Chimay Blue is an extra strong Trappist ale at 9% ABV. It pours an opaque brown colour with a thin beige head. The aroma has sour citrus, but with notes of oak and sweet fruits. The flavour is really complex. I want to describe what it’s like, but it’s just a mix of so many things that it needs to be tried on one’s own for an opinion. The finish has spiciness, but also sweet malt and again sweet fruit. The 100 rating on RateBeer might be too much, but this is definitely something I recommend trying.
