The Chimay Blue Cap, baptized "Grande Reserve" in 750 ml bottles is a dark Trappist beer with a powerful aroma, the complex flavor of which improves across the years. It was first brewed as a Christmas beer by the monks of Scourmont Abbey in 1956.
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 odor, all revealing a light but agreeable caramelized note.
It is ideally served at cellar temperature (10 to 12°C).
Named Grande Réserve, it is principally distinguished by its character of a strong beer. This is a beer whose fragrance of fresh yeast with a light, flowery rosy touch is especially pleasant. Its flavour, noticed when tasting it, only accentuates the pleasant sensations perceived in the aroma , while revealing a light but pleasant touch of roasted malt.
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.
