A peach-like aroma gives way to an almost candy-like and malty taste, finishing dry. This is one drink where you want to take your time and bask in the beautiful light passing through it, like a stained glass window picturing the dawn.

Another beer bearing the official mark of the Trappist minks, Chimay’s Grand Reserve is not one to miss.
