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.

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2006
11.2 oz bottle at Bonaventure Lounge, LA. Dark brown/amber cloudy body with a very nice inch+ white head. Slightly sweet caramel aroma. Flavors of yeast, caramel and a very nice spiciness. Finish seemed a bit weak. I know I missed something because it was served way too cold (typical) and I didn’t have enough time to let it warm. A very nice beer.

patrick767 (4130) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 16, 2006
11.2 oz bottle - Pours reddish brown with a big, foamy head. The aroma is light and fruity. The flavor strikes a nice balance between the malt sweetness and some bitterness, along with very apparent fruit notes. The palate is very lively and smooth, though it could stand to be a little more full. The finish is dry. This is a very good beer. Though at four bucks for a small bottle being easily the best price I’ve found on it, I’d like to see something a bit more full and complex.
