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.

sparta (144) - Pärnu, ESTONIA - OCT 18, 2018
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2018 Õlle on selline jook, et iga uus kord kui klaasi või pudeli suule tõstad, siis leiad midagi uut, sõltuvalt tuhandest-miljonist pisiasjast, mis hetke olukorda mõjutavad. Seega kirjutan igale õllele selle sama teksti. Hindamiseks teen vaid ticki.

Rask0lnikov (2124) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 17, 2018
330ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy reddish brown colour. Medium size beige head. Burn caramel, notes, hints of berries, notes of brown sugar or candy sugar, maltiness in the aroma. Caramel, notes of coffee, burnt caramel. Bitter finish. Grass and hops with notes of coffee. Caramelly, spicy aftertaste. Well balanced, medium carbonated brew.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2018 Buena retención de espuma. Gran carbonatacion al principio pica un poco por las burbujas pero va bajando. Sabores dulces a caramelo. Esta rica aunque prefiero la azul

#1112 lahvové 0,33l z pivotéky. Jeho modrej kolega mě naprosto vystřelil ze židle a je to doposavad mé nejoblíbenější pivo. Doufal jsem, že na červený Chumaj budu moct snést konečně trochu té kritiky, žejo. A bohužel. Stále véééééélká kvalita. Jako za čtyři, ale furt TOP10 jak nic...

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2018 Nice beer, not the best belgian around. Not the best example of the style, missing some key bubblegum notes i like.

crazykiller (129) - Iasi, ROMANIA - SEP 10, 2018
33 cl bought from supermarket. Pours hazy dark brown color with medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, dried plums, brown sugar, brown bread, some caramel. Taste is sweet, malty, caramel, belgian yeast, fried fruits. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, nice light bitter finish. Overall a very good Belgian beer.

DraftPours23 (913) - FRANCE - SEP 3, 2018
Robe brun clair, presque ambrée, trouble, mat. Très belle mousse crémeuse, reste quasi intacte tout du long. Nez malté mais assez discret. En bouche, c'est malté mais l'amertume est assez vive, et pointe dans la bouche. Pas d'arômes de houblon pour autant. Original pour une brune, cette amertume, qui fait même plus que contrebalancer un corps présent, mais pas dominant. Une belle présence en bouche, qui tapisse bien le palais. Ensemble sympathique, mais je ne suis pas totalement conquis.

tandembrauer (1880) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2018
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2018 Bottle at home. Pours slightly hazy mahagony with big beige head. Aroma of plums, dark dried fruit, brown sugar, fruit chewing gum, ethanol. Taste very sweet, with a lot of fruit esters. Bitter and slightly astringent finish. Medium bodied, warm mouth feel, high carbonation.
