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.

Excellent brew! This is a choice that has converted many commercial domestic beer drinkers! It’s one of the tastes that micro brews yearn for! Smooth, warm and filling. Subtly sweet and swallows mellow with no sting to slow you down! Fresh baked bread and the noted apricot pleasantly greet you! Relatively inexpensive considering it’s origin. Available everywhere! Great selection!

lasage (35) - DENMARK - FEB 7, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2018 Flaske. Lidt tåget brun ale. Let skum som svinder til tynd lag. Lidt sødlig mørk ristet aroma. Mørk malt, lidt sød, skummende fornemmelse, chikane gær. God øl, men ikke på niveau med den blå.
