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 Chimay
Chimay is one of the eleven Trappist breweries in the world. “Trappist" breweries are certified as the monks must follow strict guidelines such as, 1) the beer must be inside a Trappist monastery by the monks or with their supervision, 2) the profits must be used for living expenses of the monks or donated, and 3) the monks must continue a monastic way of life along their brewing.
Bolder and stronger than its smaller sibling, the dubbel, Belgian Strong Dark Ales are attracted to dishes with intense flavors, salt, and fat, like duck breast with cherry sauce, braised beef cheeks with mushroom sauce, seared foie gras, and stinky and salty bleu cheeses. Treat this Belgian specialty like a robust red wine with dinner or dessert.
Dessert - Vanilla & Caramel
