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.

LouisP (82) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2016
Bouteille de 330 ml Couleur : Brune ambrée avec une bonne carbonation et une faible effervescence Arômes : Au nez c’est mélasse, alcool, levure belge et raisins secs, et une bonne présence de pommes vertes également. Goût : En bouche c’est pomme verte et caramel. On sent également un petit arrière-goût d’épices, ainsi que la levure belge toujours présente. Appréciation Pas la belge avec la plus grande buvabilité alors qu’on goûte pas mal l’alcool malgré ses 7%. La complexité est toutefois au rendez-vous, avec toute la profondeur des saveurs senties par cette bière.

Evilkniamhel (352) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours hazy brown. Aromas of roasted malts, banana, cloves, resin. Sharp and bitter to taste at first, becomes sweet and malty by end of sip. Feels like I should be tackling it with a knife and fork.

nathanvc (182) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAR 27, 2016
Pours dark amber to brown with a creamy, lasting white head. The aroma contains fruits, malts, yeast, dough and caramel. The taste is less sweet than you’d expect, light bitter too. Fruity, dry finish. Medium body and pleasant carbonation. Quite an easy drink. The other Chimays are better and more complex, though.
