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.

Light brown color with nice 1 finger white foam. Aroma of malts, caramel, apricote, butter. Taste is sweet with some sourness and fruitiness. Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation. Nice trappist beer

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Još jedan malo manje mirišljav i okusom blaži Dubbel. Preporučam ga onima koji žele probati Belgijsko pivo a da nije preslatko. Kad bi htio onako maksimalno 'pojednostavniti' nekome ko nikad nije pio ni jedno Belgijsko pivo , i usporediti sa nečim šta je on možda već pio , onda bih mu rekao da po aromi i okusu , od Lagera bi mu najbliži bio Češko crno pivo , samo svi ti okusi i mirisi su 'duplo jači' sa još dodatnih okusa i puno su slađi , jer ipak Dubbeli su Aleovi a Češki Tmavy su Lageri !

33cl bottle. Pours a deep brown with a big off-white head of tiny tight bubbles. Lots of lacing. Scents of malt and yeast, nuts and leather. Super balanced malt and belgian yeast tatses, nuts and wheat bread. A big mouthfeel with more than average carbonation. Short finish but very pleasant. I like it a lot.

cage.79 (26) - ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2018 0,33l bottle from France, summer 2017. Deep mahogany with large long lasting head. Aroma of yeast, spices and alcohol. Fizz dances on the tongue, lovely feel. Flavour is of caramel, typical Belgian abbey yeast, brown sugar, alcohol is there but so smooth and drinkable. As always i poured too cold so taste improved as temp increased. Great beer.

Fruity, a little sweet and downright delicious. I passed it around to my non-craft beer drinking son and he declared it a winner as well. You might be on to something Chimay.

ceritani (2) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JAN 3, 2018 does not count
Good looking beer in the glass, 2 finger head. Malty and fruity aroma. Sweet taste, followed by a touch of bitterness at the end. Not specially complex, but extremely smooth and drinkable. Enjoyable ale.

Tuoksuu makealta, toffeelta ja belgihiivalta. Maku on myös makea, mutta sopivasti. Välissä tulee hieman katkeruutta, mutta päättyy mukavaan alkoholin ja sokerin sekoitukseen.

aleanguz91 (178) - Grignasco (NO), ITALY - DEC 28, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2017 Bottiglia da 75cl. Colore tonaca di frate. Abbondante schiuma avorio, pannosa, con molte bollicine e persistente. Al naso sentori fruttati, di malto tostato, con accenni liquorosi che ricordano le amarene sotto spirito. In bocca forti note di malto e caramello, uvetta, prugne e frutti rossi, che conferiscono una lieve acidità. Leggero amarognolo luppolato sul finale. Carbonazione medio-alta, decisamente eccessiva. Corpo medio. Texture oleosa. I 7 gradi non si fanno quasi sentire, la beverinitá è ottima.

Sweet caramel and malts into the finish, with some alcohol and bitterness. A balanced one with less complexity. 8/10 Mouthfeel: Full bodied, creamy, low carbonated. 4/5 Overall 12/20

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2017 Przegazowane, piana obfita, grubopęcherzykowa. Barwa rubinowe, brązowe. W aromacie miód, lekka słodowość. Wytrawne, trochę winny smak, ale dobre. Lekkie, alkohol niezbyt wyczuwalny.
