||Brasserie Bières de Chimay (BE)
||Balanced & easy-drinking (dark)
||There are only 12 Trappist monasteries in the world producing beers that can carry the Authentic Trappist Product logo – Chimay is 1 of the 6 Belgians and probably the most famous and wide-spread. Chimay Rouge (“Première” in 75 cl bottles) is the easiest going of the 3. It has beautiful late summer fruit aromas which expand to flavours of dried fruits, dates, raisins and figs.
||Lamb; slowly roasted marinated pork belly; mild abbey cheese with plum chutney
