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.

Poured from 330ml bottle in France with massive big foamy head and medium retention. Appearance is a deep brown amber and murky. Aroma is sweet, complex, and a bit boozy; very interesting. Tastes like a Belgian triple but a shade sweeter and very slightly gassy. The beer even when warmed up suffers from a lack of complexity it’s Triple sweet but not much else. Wouldn’t bother drinking it again

Backlog. Synchronizing with notes and Untappd.
Malty caramel and dried fruit (plum, raisins). Sweet, fruity and malty. Very high carbonation.

Zilverenmaan (66) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 13, 2016
Aroma and taste caramel malty, not as warm as it’s blue cousin but more sweetish and fruity, dominated by the high carbonation though. Expected more of it.

Bottle - reddish brown, slight ting on tongue and in mouth. Strength hits you straight away, fruity, slightly too sweet. Another Belgium to sip

Arômes de caramel, mousse blanche, robe marron trouble. En bouche, caramel, un peu d’amertume, pain. Beaucoup de corps et bien balancée.

RaduPopovici (20) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle 330 ml, Bucharest, at Bistro GUXT, poured in Chimay’s special glass. Nice dark copper color, rich foamy white head withgood retention and lacing. Aroma is caramel with a touch of honey, raisins, apricots, flowers. Hints of spices, biterness, bread, some nuttyness. No alcohol in the aroma. Taste is mirroring the aroma: caramel, discrete bitterness, fruits, flowers, spices. Nice integration of the alcohol. Dry aftertaste with fruity and some acid and mineral hints. Medium carbonation and body. Mouthfeel is velvety and warm, really pleasant. A good example of dubbel style. Well balanced, complexe, tasty.

wojownik17 (355) - Kraków, POLAND - DEC 7, 2016
Butelka 330 ml. Wybitna piana, bardzo obfita, zostawia takiż lacing. Barwa brunatna. Aromat drożdżowy. W smaku pełne, ale nie do końca, czuć alkohol, ale nie do przesady. Chyba gorszy z klasztornych Chimayów.

clueo (180) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Pours a nice bronze/copper color with a significant head (into a tulip glass). The aroma is a bit fruity and the taste is sweet w without being overdone. Chimay always delivers!

MGantzel (251) - Aalborg, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2016
Denne brown ale har et lidt uklart brunt udseende med et medium hvidt skum. Øllen har en sød mørkere maltet aroma og smager deraf med karamel og noter af chokolade. Medium karbonering.
