Chimay Grande Reserve Blue

Style: Abbey Dubbel (Brune), Belgian Strong Dark Ale
Alcohol: 9% ABV
Brewery: Chimay
Country/Region: Belgium

Product Description:

A Dark Belgian Strong Ale brewed by one of only seven breweries in the world officially entitled to call themselves an “Authentic Trappiste Breweries”. Since 1862 the Trappiste monks of the Chimay Abbey in have been brewing Chimay ale combining the artesian water of Chimay Abbey with the fine barley malt and aromatic blend of hops and Chimay’s uniquely cultivated yeast. Top fermentation gives Chimay a distinctive fruitiness of flavour. Fresh yeast is added just prior to bottling resulting in a slight sediment which you can see. This secondary fermentation in the bottle adds to the ale’s richness and body. The Trappiste fathers of Chimay use exclusively natural ingredients. This product has neither been pasteurized nor filtered. Serving suggestions: To fully appreciate Chimay’s aroma and flavour, serve lightly chilled in a wide mouthed glass. Next time you’re thinking “what wine will I have with this meal”, for a pleasant surprise, try substituting a Chimay Blue. Suitable for cellaring.

Tasting Notes:

Depending on how it is stored and poured this beer is a royal deep amber brown clear colour with a large lasting beige head. For extra yeast pour the whole bottle otherwise leave the last 10% in the bottle. The aroma is delicate with typical spices, hop, dried fruit and Belgian style yeast aromas which is typical of the Belgian Strong Dark Ale style. The body is smooth and luscious with a mildly sweet, moderately hoppy bitter, sourdough bread yeast and spicey flavours. Moderately dry yeasty finish. A classic Blegian beer and highly recommended.

Featured Beer
Haandbryggeriet Haandbic

Brewed in the style of a traditional Belgian lambic, Haandbic is fermented with bacteria and various wild yeasts. The fermentation takes place in oak barrels, and lasts almost 18 months. Red currents and cranberries are added to the barrels to give flavour and colour. Softer and far more approachable then it’s Belgian brethren, Haandbic is funky, complex and highly refreshing!
