Mon premier Chimay que j,ai bu, mailleur que la blanche, car je la trouve moin amère et plus riche; un peu sucré et caramelisé.

Pours a hazy brown with an average off white lightly lacing head. Aroma of dark fruits, candy sugar and a bit floral. Flavor was yeasty, lightly fruity, nutty and a little metallic. A little thin.

Dirty red-brown beer with a nice off white head. Aroma is malty and light fruity. It has a good nutty caracter and a maltyness. Taste is very refreshing for this style. It has a nice earthy touch, a fine fruityness and a great nutty feeling. In the finish there is a subtile bitterness..

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2006 [bottle] Very cloudy, reddish color with a huge, cottonish head. Flavors are very complex.. funky yeast, sweet frutiness, and very subtle alcohol content. Strong carbonation. This is a very fine beer.

Murky orange-brown with tan head. The head stayed till the end. Sour yeasty aroma with some sweet notes. Palate was a surprise with maltiness, caramel, lots of carbonation and yeast. To me its an honest well-made beer.

[Bottle, 75cl, fresh, chilled]
Everything has been said on this. Lets just say that it’s another great trappist. Fruity nose.. plum/berry. Malt hits first then a bitter hint get noticed. Fine beer overall. To my opinion, the palate is the only deceiving part of the beer.. I guess i had high expectation for that beer but i find the body a little light, the texture thin and the finish abrupt..

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2006 Complex taste. Fruity tasting , mostly apricot and maybe a hint of plum, some spices that are unknown to me. Yeast setiment at bottom of bottle. Beautiful hazy, dark copper color. My first Chimay and boy have I’ve been missing out. One bottle will warm you up nicely on a cold winter night. Can’t wait to try the Blue next week.

Again with the yeast. Chimay Red was a good looker but poor performer. It’s overcarbonated and equally flat if that makes sense. Blue has grown on me into some sort of chewy metamorphosis, but red I dont think has a chance. At best I got a faint amount of malt and some caramelly tones. maybe some dark fruits but I was so frustrated that I didnt bother. bleh
