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.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2006 I think this was my first Abbey Dubbel which men’t why it was weaker than a triple or quadrupel. Pours a dark mahogany with very fluffy white head. Aroma is fruity and the taste is the same as it. Fruity but you could tell it was weak, the alcohol didn’t have the kick and make it that much fruitier, ok but I’ll take a stronger abbey anyday.

Cloudy, dark ruddy copper colored pour with a tall nutty head. Yeasty nose with some dried prune. Very yeasty flavor as well and the texture is quite buttery. This beer starts with a nice herbal hoppiness, and finishes with a touch of cinnamon and clove. Very nice overall.

Quixote18 (236) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Foamy cream-colored head on a hazy reddish brown body. Aroma was initially more hoppy than I expected, then with some time displayed sweet red fruits that became more and more apparent. Fairly carbonated on the tounge and medium-bodied. Smooth and a little yeasty. Flavor is subdued, but good. A very pleasant beer, but not very complex.

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.

toccata (70) - grembergen, BELGIUM - JAN 22, 2006
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.
