Ingredients: Pilsner malt (French barley from Champagne); wheat starch or flour (10% - 15%); dextrose (5%); malt extract (0.1%); hop extract from German Hallertaur (aroma) & American Galena (bittering) hops. Yeast & liquid invert sugar added to the bottled beer.
Chimay Red is noted for its coppery colour which makes it particularly attractive. Topped with a creamy head, it gives off a light, fruity apricot aroma produced by the fermentation. The taste perceived in the mouth is a balance confirming the fruity nuances noticed in the fragrance. 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. This top fermented Trappist beer, refermented in the bottle, is not pasteurised.

Tried this few times but never rated. Lovely foam. Strong fruity aroma. Bit murky color but maybe my lame pouring is to blame. Boozy aroma and slight booze in taste but still amazing quality.

Padchenko (166) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 23, 2015
Pours dark brown with a thick white head that lasts. A light aroma. Bready, mostly sweet with some limited bitterness in the finish. Fruity and mildly hoppy. Very nice

Delft 16-10-2015 Chimay Red, bruin bier Licht bruine kleur met aardige schuimkraag. Weinig aroma. Prima smaak en zeer goed te drinken maar heeft in mijn ogen, in tegenstelling tot andere Chimays, geen volle, kleurrijke smaak. Deze is vrij neutraal met een licht bittere nasmaak.
