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.

33 cl bottle. Pours with good sized, quickly dissapating off white head leaving some lacing and coppery amber color. Pleasant spicy floral aroma. Slightly dry smooth spicy flavor with a hint of alcohol and a touch of bitterness. Yeasty spice flavor lingers. I will have more of this brew.

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Bottle, 33cl. Pours an amber brown with a large lacy head. Slight hint of bananas and spices. Has a fruity slight yeasty flavor. This is my favorite of the Chimay, and it tastes even better in the Chimay glass. Great.....

frankenkitty (2007) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Pours a murky, copper/mahogany with a large initial head that dwindled quickly to a cream-colored ring. Aroma finds musty yeasts with light hopping, mild barnyard and new shoe-leather. Fluffy mouthfeel. Flavor is smoked, sweet & sour fruitiness (cherry dominates) with vinous notes, finishing with a spicy dirtiness. Not bad... not sure why all the fanfare...

One of the smoothest beers I have ever had. Sweet aroma, a slightly thin head, fruity, hoppy taste

Enjoyable. I had "Chimay Premiere" in one of the large bottles, splitting half ot it with a friend. It was enjoyable, strong, very drinkable, though inferior to Chimay Blue in my opinion.

SHIG (4675) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - FEB 4, 2006
Dark coppery colored with light brown head. Very light fruit aroma. Not a really strong fruit flavor or taste in general as other trappists.

Bottle. Off-white short head. Unclear orange red body. Aroma of berries. First impression of flavor is sweet berriest is however modified by the powerful carbonation.
