Premiere “Red Label”
Trappist Ale - Chimay
In order to meet their needs and those of their foundations as well as to sustain employment in their region, since 1862 the Cistercian Trappist monks of Chimay have been developing the production of Trappist beers and cheeses which, owing to their character and qualities are well known and enjoy great success.
This top fermented Trappist beer, refermented in the bottle,is not pasteurised. Topped with a creamy head, it gives off a light, fruity apricot aroma produced by the fermentation. Its taste, which imparts a silky sensation to the tongue, is made refreshing by a light touch of bitterness. To the palate, the taster perceives a pleasant astringency which complements the flavour qualities of this beer very harmoniously.
$9.00 / 33 cl bottle
