Chimay Doree / Speciale du Potaupre
Style: Belgian Ale
Format: 330ml Bottle
Historically not sold to the public and only available at Auberge de Poteaupré, Chimay, Belgium, as "Speciale De Poteaupré". This beer has been previously reserved for use solely by the Chimay Trappists Monks.
Refreshing with a nice amount of spiciness. They say drinking this takes you one step closer to enlightenment!
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Sweet, Summery, Beautiful Beer
The Belgian Trappist Brews are exceptional - and this "entry level" Blonde 4.8% Monks speciality is gentle to the palate, not too bitter with a hint of mead-like honey flavour. Truly satisfying late on a heat-wave summer's day, just right!
I liked this and thought it was pretty good, however I would say I prefer the other Chimay beers I have had like the blue and red.
I thought it was pretty cool to try a beer that was traditionally only for the monks. I guess that's why it's not as strong as the other Chimay beers haha, definitely worth a try.
