Excellent caramel color, smooth with mild flavor and top shelf taste, would love to drink it again but it?s too pricey at $9 per 12 oz. bottle from local bars, over $100 per case from distributors, it?s just not that good.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This was a 330ml bottle that was dated best before end of 2018 and poured into a Chimay goblet. It poured a very hazy brown colour with a very nice thick cream coloured two finger head that dissipates very slowly but when it does, leaves a nice curtain lacing. Aromas are fruity, mainly of dark fruits like plum, cherry, and fig. There is also some pear, apple and candied sugar and a hint of nuttiness. Fruity cherry and plum tastes upfront with hints of banana and pear. There’s also some light malt caramel and bready sweetness followed by a nice light bitter finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth creamy and slightly sticky. Admittedly, I used to think that this was just ok but I’ve grown to enjoy this beer the more I drink it. When I first tried it maybe ten years ago, Chimay Blue was far and away better and so I mostly bought that. However, clearly my taste changed and the last few years Chimay Red became one of my staple beers.

Copenhagen 31/5 2015. 33 cl bottle from Fakta. The chummy little chubby bootle from Chimay. Very foamy upon opening slightly overflowing. Pours hazy orange brown with very big white head. Settles very slowly to a 1 cm thick creamy layer of foam. Intense aroma of characteristic Belgian yeast combined with fruity sweetness. Plum and caramel and a little spice. Medium carbonation. Taste is of caramel and yeast with a mild sour bitterness in aftertaste. Distinct notes of alcohol. Very Classic Belgian Bruin.

Bottel from Auchan, Luxembourg. Pours reddish-brown, hazy, nice white head. Nose is intense and fruity; I could discern cherry, lemon, cinnamon and plums. Taste is well balanced, fruity and not oo alcoholic, slight bitterness. Creamy and silky mouthfeel, long finish. Will drink again.

Bottiglia. Colore rosso - bruno, con abbondante schiuma beige, cremosa, ma non molto persistente. Aroma straordinario, al naso è un tripudio, con caramello, frutta candita ed albicocca in evidenza. Anche banana e cioccolato, in minor misura. Gusto dolce ma bilanciato, l’alcol emerge sul finale. Al palato, nonostante la carbonatazione, è velluto. Finale che lascia soddisfatti. Sempre un’esperienza.

Predominantly sweet, with malt and caramel notes to it. It’s a nice beer, but with just few more cents I can get much better Blue Chimay.

Robe ruby sombre et un peu trouble, petit collet persistant.

Ronde en bouche mais moins que la bleu.
