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.

alteregoo (76) - POLAND - DEC 27, 2014
Po przelaniu do szkła ukazuje się średniej wielkości biała piana otulająca trunek o miedzianej mętnej barwie. W aromacie wyraźna słodowość i przyjemne owoce - ciemne winogrona, brzoskwinie, dojrzałe czereśnie. Po ogrzaniu się piwa dochodzi zapach suszonych daktyli, fig i miodu. Nuty dzikich drożdży ledwo wyczuwalne, ale są. W smaku dość wytrawnie jak na dubbla, początkowy cukier w postaci fruktozy jest szlachetny, nienachalny, dalej dochodzi do głosu owocowość, która przechodzi w chlebowość razowca z rodzynkami, aby na finiszu przejść w głogowo-korzenną goryczkę. Nasycenie średnie do niskiego, ciepło alkoholu odczuwalne tylko głęboko w przełyku. Bardzo ułożone i zbalansowane piwo, bez wad, ukazujące wszystkie zalety belgijskiego klasztornego dubbla.

Baalzevuv (38) - - DEC 27, 2014
Barwa głeboko rubinowa, lekko zmętniona, piana biała, średnio i grubopecherzykowa, nietrwała, dość obfita. Aromat słodowy i chlebowy, lekko wiśniowy. W smaku cierpkie, lekko alkoholowe, mocne. Nie zostawia posmaku. W ustach rozchodzi się w pełni, goryczka średnia, piwo na języku szerokie, wysycenie spore.

morri (218) - NORWAY - DEC 24, 2014
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Medium tan head. Hazy reddish brown body. Aroma is caramel, dark fruits, herbs and liquorice. Mostly sweet on the tongue. Pretty good, but far from the best trappist beer.

Flavour is very strong bitter fruits. Significantly worse than regular Chimay and Chimay White.

lbianchi66 (34) - FRANCE - DEC 22, 2014
Belle robe noisette, légèrement opaque. La mousse tient bien. Très maltée. Arômes de levure et fruits rouges. Longue en bouche. Très bonne bière.

leghorn99 (36) - Livorno, ITALY - DEC 21, 2014
Di colore mogano, torbida, forma un discreto cappello di schiuma ocra, cremosa, di buona persistenza. Al naso sentori molto pronunciati di frutta, speziatura da lievito, alcool, malto tostato. Corpo rotondo, carbonatazione alta. Al palato è dolce di malto, elegante e morbida; il finale è lungo, con note amare del luppolo ben bilanciate.

bleeng (1544) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Draft. Pours dark red with no head. Nose is malty and slight sweet. Taste is mild malt and some yeast. Body is real thin. Not trappist worthy.

Cloudy amber pour, fluffy slightly tan head. Nose is dark fruit (raisins& dates). Sweet. Middle is caramelized nmalt, cherries, hint liquorice. Finish dries somewhat, slight woody taste. Lot going on here.
