3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a medium copper in color with an average sized off white foamy head that was mostly lasting and had some what fair lacing.
The aroma was of a toasted caramel malt, a light resin hop and a sweet yeast with a hint of apricot, banana, dried fruit and some spice (cinnamon and maybe a little nutmeg).
It tasted very light, sweet and malty with notes of sweet dried fruit and banana in the beginning and finished moderately sweet with a tinge of bitterness that had a nice malty feel to it with notes of caramel and spices at the end. Although I would have liked the flavor to last a nice long while, it only lasted a short time.
Mouthfeel was light to medium bodied and watery yet somewhat creamy in texture with a flat carbonation.
Overall a very enticing brew, but anything from this brewer seems to taste well.

Pours brownish-red with thick, persistent beige head. Aroma of bread, herbs and dried fruits. Taste is balanced by sweet and light bitter, fruity and bready. A harmonious beer all around.

Nice sweet beer with a hint of bitter aftertaste. The sweetness masks the strength of 7 apv.

Pours a rich coppery red, slightly hazy with nice head which doesn’t last too long. Aroma is caramel, bready yeast, apricots, dried fruit and slightly herbal. Nice smooth taste lightly balanced sweetness, not too bitter and dry. Complex and good beer, noticeable soft carbonation yet also a bit creamy.

There’s only one thing to say about Chimay Red cap: awesome.
Right out of the bottle it smells amazing, the color, a dark red calls the first drink. Great taste in the mouth and just a little feel of the alcohol at the end. We can feel the sweet taste of fruits and caramel.
