Within the world of beers, Chimay Grande Reserve, often referred to as Chimay Blue, stands out as a beacon of authenticity, tradition, and unparalleled quality. Bearing the "Authentic Trappist Product" label, this brew emanates directly from the walls of Scourmont Abbey in Chimay, Belgium. Crafted by monks dedicated to perfection, each bottle not only offers a divine taste but also preserves and promotes the centuries-old Trappist brewing legacy.

The tale of Chimay Grande Reserve is tightly interwoven with the history of Scourmont Abbey, established in 1850. The monks, adapting to the barren land, soon realised its potential for brewing, and by 1862, the first brew of Chimay saw the light of day. Grande Reserve, introduced in 1956 as a Christmas beer, became an instant classic and is cherished globally.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: Deep, almost opaque brown with a tinge of ruby. Topped by a thick, creamy tan head that lingers with elegance.
  • Aroma: A captivating ensemble of dark fruits – think figs, dates, and raisins, melded with toffee and a hint of toasted bread. A whisper of clove and yeast adds complexity to the olfactory experience.
  • Flavour: Rich and multi-layered. The dark fruits from the aroma make a triumphant entry, accompanied by nuances of caramel and malt. A subtle bitterness underpins the sweetness, ensuring a well-rounded taste.
  • Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, velvety, and effervescent. The 9% ABV imparts warmth, leading to a long, satisfying finish.

Chimay Grande Reserve is more than just a beer; it's an experience. It's a journey through time, honouring ancient monastic brewing traditions while presenting a taste profile that feels incredibly modern and sophisticated.

Whether you're an ardent aficionado of Trappist ales or a casual drinker eager to delve into the heart of Belgian brewing, Chimay Grande Reserve promises a symphony of flavours that dance on the palate, leaving an indelible impression.

For those seeking to elevate their drinking repertoire, or those aiming to gift a piece of Belgian heritage, this beer fits the bill impeccably. It pairs wonderfully with cheeses, especially those from its native abbey, and serves as the perfect companion on a relaxed evening.

Treasure the art of brewing, embrace the monastic tradition, and luxuriate in a tapestry of flavours with Chimay Grande Reserve; purchase online or in-store now.
