Chimay Grande Reserve, the 750ml version of Chimay’s Blue, is a lovely dark caramel coloured beer with a creamy head. On the palate it presents savoury flavours and scents, cashew nuts, coffees and malt chocolates with a touch of cinnamon.
A strong Belgian Trappist ale. 9% ABV.
Chimay Blue, also known as the Grande Reserve, was first brewed to celebrate Christmas 1948. This "Speciale Noel" would become part of their standard range to celebrate the opening of their new brewing hall in 1954. It is the strongest of the regular Chimay Trappist beers. Its reputation is that of the most highly rated of the Chimay beers, with the exception of Chimay Grande Reserve Whiskey barrel aged beer. This beer is ideally served at 10-12 degrees.
To be enjoyed with a range of cheeses, particularly aged goat cheddar for its a creamy mellow taste.
The Trappist brothers of Scormont Abbey, Chimay, have been brewing since 1862. Using their own natural spring water, which impart a unique flavour, the monks were the first monastery to use the official 'Trappist' designation, which safeguards the strict quality standards found in their drinks. As Cistercians of the Strict Observance, the monks live life in silence, totally withdrawn from the modern world. Over time they have developed their products to include their famous cheese as well as expanding the original single line of beer to a total of 7 or 8 when including special brews such as the rare Grand Reserve. Chimay is the most famous of all the Trappist beers and has led the way in having monastic products recognised for their high quality. The abbey uses its significant proceeds to support many charitable institutions and smaller monasteries, as well as employing over 30% of the local town.
