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.

Beautiful Trappist with surprisingly light amber color for a Dubbel style. Quite fruity on the mouth.

Huge aroma of a sweet prune fig and red grapefruit. Taste of rich dark fruits and medium grain malts. Finishes very champagne like in the palate. Nice subtle sweet fruits in finish.

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.

SkillsFactory (177) - ITALY - JUL 21, 2015
Color tonaca di frate chiara con riflessi arancio, velata dai lieviti in sospensione, schiuma beige chiara poco persistente. Aroma di zucchero caramellato, uva passa, note vinose e speziate, leggero sentore di formaggi che si amplifica man mano che si scalda (lievito). Al palato sempre uva passa, zucchero caramellato, vinosa è un po' speziata. Corpo medio-pieno, molto carbonata.

33mL bottle @ Burguers & Beer, Lisbon. Awesome matted dark brown colour, medium cloudy head, leaves a little too much bitterness for my taste.
