Bottle. Ruby color with medium lasting cream white head. Fruity malt and yeast aroma. Sweet malty flavour with notes off yeast. yespr (44793) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy brown/amber with a light brown, slight crispy and lasting head. Caramel malty sweet aroma with clear yeast traces. Sweet caramel and almost breadlike flavoured into the finish. Yeast does give the beer some more complex notes, but it is still my least favourite chimay. Good but not as good as the other 2.

A beutiful dark brown color. It has a light aroma of fruit and a good head. It has a slight aroma of hop bitternes. It is very drinkable but somewhat boring. If I could choose between this and Chimay Bleu I would never drink Chimay Rouge (and I very seldom do) joergen (27982) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2005

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2008 Bottled. Hazy brown colour with huge bubbly beige head. Sweet alcoholic citric aroma with some malty notes. Barley, malt and lots of yeast in the flavour. Also some banana and caramellish hints. Pleasant palate, but a bit much carbonation.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Muddy brownish colour with a beautiful rocky head. Extremely dry, more dry than bitter. Some chocolatey notes. Not as full-bodied as most other trappists, but still a very beautiful experience. 040993

Hazy chocolate brown beer. Light palate, airy. A little soft and dry. Pleasant even malt with a light touch of chocolate. Lactose sweetness and well integrated subtle orange fruit. Finishes soft and dry. Well joined up.
Maroon colored with light tan head. Aroma of sweet malt and caramel. Some dark fruit lurking in the background with a slight bitter balance.
