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).
"Bright red amber. Moderately full-bodied. Moderate bitterness. Pours with a big creamy off-white head. Fruity, floral hop aromas. Sweetish dark caramel malt flavors expand on the palate with a hint of hoppy bite on the finish and some warmth." -Rated 91, Beverage Tasting Institute
One of the most recognized names in Belgian beer.
