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.

Just come back from the pub and have had a few of these - heavy but with a pleasant flavour and appetising taste

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.

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 (248) - 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.

Thanks to whoever posted the most rated beers thread made me realize plenty of easy ticks still left that I always assumed I rated. Ruby colored fine thick head. Nose is toffee and flowery. Tastes of toffee, malt, yeast, flowers. Decent carbonation alcohol not noticeable.

Endnu en god øl fra Chimay men fortrækker dog den blå... Men bestemt ikke dårlig Brown Alish...

Bijl (319) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2016
Koperkleurig, troebel, licht crèmekleurige romige schuimkraag, veel koolzuur langs het glas. Aroma: Fruitige geur van rood fruit en bessen. Kruidnagel, licht gebrande mouten en banaan en kruidigheid uit de gist. Smaak: Donker fruit en daarvan zoetig, kruidig als kruidnagel en peper, tikje wrang/zuur wat wel eens vanuit de gist zou kunnen komen. Medium body, redelijk actief Koolzuur, afdronk is kruidig en licht bitter met een tikje warmte.

W aromacie fenole, drożdże, rodzynki, figi, zbożowo, pezyjemnie, belgijsko. W wyglądzie czerwień wpadająca w brąz, solidna beżowa piana, lacing. W smaku całkiem wytrawnie, owocowo, lekko rozgrzewająco - alkoholowo, nieco wodniście, pijalnie, wyczuwalne drożdże, do tego zbożowość, także bardzo belgijsko w smaku, całość ładnie ułożona. Ogólnie solidny dubbel, bardzo fajnie ułożony ale też nie będący jakąś petardą. Dobre piwo, przyjemnie relaksujące wieczorem,ale też nic nie urwie

elosop (336) - SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2016
Dimmigt brunorange med tjockt beigevitt skum. Doftar torkad frukt och lite halm. Smaken fyllig och söt. Eftersmaken hyggligt lång med vinösa toner på slutet.

PhillyCraft (6304) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Bottles over the years, first tried in 2008. Pours a dark amber brown color with medium head that didn’t hang out too long. Notes of Raisins, plum, fig, oak, and cherry marzipan. Ultra warming in the chest. Good Belgian but prefer the blue.
