Chimay Grande Réserve 2015 oak aged is an exceptional beer that benefits from triple fermentation and has aged for 6 months in new wooden casks (from Bourgogne, France). Unfiltered, unpasteurised, this beer has an incomparable rounded, wooden flavour. Limited edition.
This beer’s presence is a noticeable result of a powerful nose that initially imposes its authority, followed by an equally imposing tinged flavor of nobility with a very stylish character. Languid, velvety tones accumulate, with natural roasted malts. There is a definitive, generous largesse to the beer’s sweetness, from real cane sugar, with a dark ruby majestic aftertaste. Its status ranks well above beers in its category.
