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.

Panzerfaust (848) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - FEB 12, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2006 Pours a red to light brown and hazy beer with sediments and a big creamy head with good retention that leaves a huge lacing. Nice yeasty aroma with caramel and spicey herbal hints. Very strong banana with palm syrup smell. There are also soft notes of raisins, fruits and vanilla. Flavor is moderately bitter with some coffee and nuts, ending slightly alcoholic and with a good finishing duration. Medium body. It feels incredibly smooth in the mouth with it’s silky texture and soft carbonation. This beer has a warming effect. Great.

33 cl bottle. Pours with good sized, quickly dissapating off white head leaving some lacing and coppery amber color. Pleasant spicy floral aroma. Slightly dry smooth spicy flavor with a hint of alcohol and a touch of bitterness. Yeasty spice flavor lingers. I will have more of this brew.

Pours amber red, very cloudy. Yeasty spicy aroma. Strong carbonation, faint hops, restrained malt sweetness, strong yeast presence, citrus zest residual spiciness. Delicious!

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Bottle, 33cl. Pours an amber brown with a large lacy head. Slight hint of bananas and spices. Has a fruity slight yeasty flavor. This is my favorite of the Chimay, and it tastes even better in the Chimay glass. Great.....

frankenkitty (2012) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Pours a murky, copper/mahogany with a large initial head that dwindled quickly to a cream-colored ring. Aroma finds musty yeasts with light hopping, mild barnyard and new shoe-leather. Fluffy mouthfeel. Flavor is smoked, sweet & sour fruitiness (cherry dominates) with vinous notes, finishing with a spicy dirtiness. Not bad... not sure why all the fanfare...

11 oz. bottle. Very smooth, didn’t expect that at all. Strong, enjoyable. Fruit flavor, and deffinately a ale to enjoy for a long time.

geastman (5) - USA - FEB 4, 2006 does not count
One of the smoothest beers I have ever had. Sweet aroma, a slightly thin head, fruity, hoppy taste

Enjoyable. I had "Chimay Premiere" in one of the large bottles, splitting half ot it with a friend. It was enjoyable, strong, very drinkable, though inferior to Chimay Blue in my opinion.
