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.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2020 11.2 ounce bottle in Peninsula, Ohio. Smell Belgium sweetness. Dark brown with big off-white head. Light taste of yeast and some sweetness Very smooth and alcohol is well hidden. Very nice beer. Cheers!

andrea.guinness (118) - Castello di Fiemme, ITALY - SEP 19, 2020
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2020 Ambrata con schiuma media. Aromi fruttati e floreali. In bocca è inizialmente molto dolce e maltata, con un leggero gusto di caramello. Si presenta abbastanza piccante e speziata. Sentori fruttati. Ottima dubbel molto gustosa.

diarmuid_cds (43) - - AUG 31, 2020
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2020 Appearance - copper colour, red ale-esque, tan head that sticks around. Aroma of Breadcrust, toffee, dried apples, light banana bread, light orange peel, a little herbal hop too. Taste is same, much drier than i expected, with a cola thing going on at the back end. Finishes with a note somewhere between the acidity of sourdough and the hefty nuttiness of brown bread. Alot of Belgian beers are simply too yeasty and fruity for my palate, but this turned out to be quite the malt-bomb, with just enough hop bitterness and esthers to balance it out. If i had one critique it would be that the body was quite thin, but this particular bottle was a little older than would be typically drunk. A really nice beer to sip and make last the evening, or to crush three and pass out.

DLCwolf (23) - ITALY - AUG 22, 2020
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2020 Mto schiumosa densa, color marrone sporco, non filtrata. Al naso lievito, leggero. In bocca si sente atout, caramellato e tostato. Ma mai troppo forte. Alcol non si sente (se non dopo, in testa)

heno (565) - DENMARK - AUG 11, 2020
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2020 Bottle. Hazy light brown, off-white head. Aroma: caramel malts, toffee, dried apple, marcipan, popcorn. Lots of layers. Light sweetness, light-medium tartness. Noticeable esters and alcohol. Not my type, but okay nonetheless.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2020 Adding in my 300 Beers To Try ticks because I want to see how they impact my stats and some of them I will never see again. Will however re-rate them when practical.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2020 Muy buena cerveza, fina y sedosa al paladar , afrutada con sabor un poco fuerte al alcohol, sus olores a flores y frutos rojos, muy agradable.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2020 Une bière brune fidèle à la gamme Chimay qui convainc très facilement malgré une amertume quelque peu artificielle.
