COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned - 75 cl, and 33 cl bottles.
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.

Beautiful maghogany red color, creamy foam with a very tiny bit of lace. The taste starts off with a bang of earth, spice, rasins, and very nice bitter. The taste fades to a lovely bitter ending.

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2006
11.2 oz bottle at Bonaventure Lounge, LA. Dark brown/amber cloudy body with a very nice inch+ white head. Slightly sweet caramel aroma. Flavors of yeast, caramel and a very nice spiciness. Finish seemed a bit weak. I know I missed something because it was served way too cold (typical) and I didn’t have enough time to let it warm. A very nice beer.
