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.

Chimay is a quality brand and beer. But I have to say that this beer is my least favorite of the Chimay family. Still very high quality beer. Just a little more bitter than the Blue and Cinq white

Reddish-brown color with medium, but stable head. Yeast aroma, a bit sour, some caramel, but not too intense. Sweetish banana taste in the beginning, some spices, but after some time in the mouth, it doesn’t really taste of anything anymore. Foamy, smooth mouthfeel, but hardly any finish at all besides a bit of alcohol - maybe a little bit of sourness, but I have a hard time sensing it. I am not really convinced of this one, considering it?s a Trappist beer; I like the blanche/tripel and the bleue better.

digopossobon (291) - MACAE, BRAZIL - SEP 20, 2014
Foi a estrela da noite de degustação, precedida por uma Colorado Appia, uma Brooklyn East India Pale Ale e uma Affligem Blonde. Realmente é uma cerveja menos complexa que a Chimay Blue, mas não faz feio de forma alguma. Bela coloração avermelhada, bom creme, bastante persistente. Frutada e quente. Um pouco licorosa. Aroma frutado e médio.

Pours a copper color with a creamy head that disappears leaving a long lasting lacing. Very malty with a bit of hop bitterness. Has a bit of a fruity presence. The mouth feel is off. I have not noticed this before, so wondering if my bottle is past its prime. It leaves a bit of a coating. Reminds me of a fragrance that you accidentally get a taste of. and coats the roof of the mouth. I know I have drank this years ago and loved it, so might have to do a rerate on another bottle.
