“Bonza Recipe…Better than the original” as reviewed by Bill  on the 9th of April. (click on the review tab above to see full review)

The Original Chimay Blue or Chimay Grand Reserve at 9% alcohol, is a Belgian classic & we have spent years perfecting our recipe. As far as clones go this is one of our best ever.

It's rich, spicy & fruity peppery with a superb coppery colour, heaps of malt density & character providing a gentle sweetness. It is higher in alcohol than a regular Belgian Ale & given its strength subtle hints of alcohol are present throughout, which just adds to the indulgent drinking pleasure.
