Grande Réserve CALVADOS 2023 750ml

The Grande Reserve Calvados-barrel fermented variation features the time-honoured ancestral heritage of second fermenation. Each year using wooden barrels of particular provenence and flavour palate, the monks produce a one-of-a-kind limited ale, introducing a new level of complexity and excellence to an already highly polished process. The ale goes through a further third fermentation once in the bottle leading to a drink that only improves with time. The dark black glass of the bottle contributes to its aging potential, among the most highly praised Trappist beers ever produced.

Calvados barrels 25%, French Oak 30%, American Oak 45%

This ale is best served between 10-12°C.
