Chimay Premiere is a beautiful dark ruby red dubbel delivering hints of black cherries, brown sugar, plum with touches of candy cane and licorice to the nose. Black cherries and plum brandy with honey, barley and malt, subtle flavours of tobacco can also be tasted. Slightly bitter on the creamy finish.
Deeply historied, Chimay Premiere is the 750ml variation of Chimay Red. It was first brewed in 1862 long before the formal designation of ‘Trappist’ was used to market the quality of Trappist products. The exquisite qualities of this beer speak for themselves. Ideally served at 10-12°C.
Pairs well with any mild creamy cheese but particularly with Chimay’s own Grand Chimay.
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 As Cistercians of the Strict Observance, the monks live life in silence, totally withdrawn from the modern world.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.
