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.
It is served ideally at cellar temperature (10 to 12°C).
Manneken-Brussel Imports is the U.S. importer of Bières de Chimay, the flagship of the Trappist beer category. Since 1862, the monks of the Abbey of Scourmont have brewed world-class Belgian ales in their small village of Chimay. These ales are all-natural, with no filtering or pasteurizing. 90% of the revenue from each bottle sold is used for charitable work around the world.
