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.

Hazy golden orange pour with small off white head. Aroma of malts, yeast, caramel and bready. Taste of bready dough, yeast, caramel, banana and spice. Full bodied, higher carbonation and a slightly dry finish. Very enjoyable beer

KAWANO (24) - JAPAN - MAR 4, 2014
This beer is one of the great beer that is easy to get very in terms of distribution and cost-effective first. It is a taste of the basics of Trappist beer, but again surprised the good that it can try to return to drink also has a complex flavor. Fit very well in recipes and it is a thing which is easy to drink to people of beer novice.

SimonTja (91) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2014
Pours amber red with a small off white head. Smells nutty and caramelly, tastes the same and for me kind of one noted and quite boring. The trappist yeast flavors are not present and this is for me just boring lightly toasted malt with some earthy caramel nuttiness.

Dark amber color. Aroma is yeast, dried fruits. Taste is lightly roasted malt, spices and apple and raisins. Essentially no hops. I enjoyed the yellow a lot more, but this is obviously an excellent beer.
