Chimay Grand Reserve 2019
"Grande Réserve" is an exceptional beer that is fermented in barrels. The beer enjoys a triple fermentation and a long maturation in barrels. Grande Réserve is neither filtered nor pasteurised and has an inimitable round and woody taste.
In the nose, we clearly distinguish floral and fruity scents: violets and elderflower go hand in hand with eau de vie aromas of banana and beer. In the mouth, this bouquet is complemented by coconut and vanilla aromas of oak and completed by subtle hints of caramel is a pleasant surprise. The beer has a sweet attack that is taken over by the alcohol that is generously present. The smooth character continues into the aftertaste.
