Not bad - But not great....Bitter and carbonated. Nice Reddish/brown appearance - very foamy head. Fruity and spicy -- This beer can definetly stand up for its self.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 oz bottle - Pours reddish brown with a big, foamy head. The aroma is light and fruity. The flavor strikes a nice balance between the malt sweetness and some bitterness, along with very apparent fruit notes. The palate is very lively and smooth, though it could stand to be a little more full. The finish is dry. This is a very good beer. Though at four bucks for a small bottle being easily the best price I’ve found on it, I’d like to see something a bit more full and complex.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2007 red brown with creamy white head. Like the other chimays it has a lively carbonation. Defenetly a bit like the bleu but not as complex. It feels like a little bit less of everything. Ok finish! Re-rating june 07: 2001 bottle enjoyed at a quiet pub in Venezia: Muddy brown with good head. COMPLEX - Dark sweet fruits, malty, light alcohol, pleasant warmth, port notes - light spice. This experience was fantastic!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poors golden brown with a pebbly head. Drinks easily despite its high ABV. I found the red and white versions indistiguishable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
red brown color, foamy head, Medium bodied and wonderfully smooth velvety well balanced bitter-sweet-alcohol palate from start to finish, some woody flavours in there as well. Lighter flavoured than both the Blue or White but still a great beer in its own right. I think I prefer it over both the Blue or White
