Chimay Grande Réserve Aged in Wooden Casks

Chimay is paying homage to an ancestral method; ageing its Chimay Blue in wooden barrels.

This ageing method provides it with exceptional flavors and a complex taste.

This taste varies depending on the type of barrel used.

The Barrel Aged Chimay Grande Réserve undergoes a 3rd fermentation in the bottle.

Belgiuminabox follows all releases by the Trappist brewery of Chimay (l’Abbaye de Scourmont), among those are the Cognac Barrel Aged bottlings :

Batch 1 Vintage November 2015

Batch 2 Vintage March 2016

Both Chimay bottlings are produced in limited amounts using craft-brewing methods and are currently in store.
