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.

GTAEgeek (2185) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2013
33 cL bottle. Hazy, reddish brown, with a medium, tan head. The aroma is caramel, figs, oak, resin, and cherries. The flavor is very sweet and grainy, with a little fruity tartness and light earthy hop bitterness. Medium body, lightly acidic, and effervescent. Overall, this is a lovely, complex, and delicious beer.

Brązowe, mętne, nalewa się z obfitą pianą. Słodki aromat suszonych owoców, rodzynek karmelu, w tle lekki alkohol i trochę fenoli. W smaku na początku słodkie, pojawiają się nuty świeżych i suszonych owoców, chleb i miód. Alkohol dobrze ukryty. Przyzwoita nudna Belgia.

From 330ml bottle. Pours gorgeous amber-copper with a full pillowy head that eventually fades into a creamy cap. Nose is malt, sugar, dark fruit, lightly funky. Flavors are a delicious, creamy mixture of fruit, toast, caramel, spice. Lightest touch of bitterness comes in on the long finish. Yum. Buying more tomorrow.

Voor mij bijna zelfde smaak als zijn blauwe broertje, maar de blauwe versie heeft meer smaak. Al met al is dit best een lekker relatief licht biertje. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
