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.

Akatyzja (34) - POLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Kolor rubinowy. Po otwarciu wystąpił gashing, przez co po nalaniu wytworzyła się bardzo mała piana, drobnopęcherzykowa, jasnokremowa. Aromat owocowy, słodkawy, chmielowy. Smak cytrusów, potem karmel i lekko wyczuwalna goryczka. Dość wysokie wysycenie tak jak w Triplu i Bleue.

LasseVPedersen (169) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. Pours hazy, brown with a orange/red hue to it. Big, foamy, creamy and inviting beige head which leaves good lacing. Aroma comes off quite strong with sweet malt, apricots, (apple)fruits and yeast. Underneath darker dried fruits, spices, biscuits and bread. Flavour is caramelized malt sweetness, fruity and with some earthy bread as well, Taste is very well balanced, not being too sweet, with a fine full-bodied palate; creamy, soft carbonation and mouth-fell. No hobs at all. Very good.
