RATINGS: 3434   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.78   EST. CALORIES: 210   ABV: 7%
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.

Pours a dark hazy amber body with a beige head. Delayed flavour bomb of sweet caramel and malt, and with a dry, almost coarse, yeast followup.

TorbenJensen (1334) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2015
Lovely dark brown ale with close persistent foam. The scent is berries, caramel malt and light hop. Furthermore, it smells a little flower. The flavor is sweet and has a typical Belgian touch. Initially felt a little coffee, but it is sweet caramel that characterizes most. Soft fruit retains sweetness, but also impart a slightly sour tang until hops maintains a long finale. It’s a really beautiful dubbel.

Great beer. Enjoy the triple more, but still this is a great beer. Dark brown in colour, pours lively with a sizeable head. Surprisingly the foam disappeared quickly - but lacing stayed to the end. Loads of carbonation hides all initial flavour, followed by a flavour bomb of sweet malts balanced by the high alcohol. Nice - but will choose the Chimay triple instead.
