Smooth neutral well balanced ale with a wheat hint. Slightly sweet biscuit and caramel. Very drinkable.

True to style, this Belgian ale is very bready. Big-bodied, dark, beautiful beer. There are better beers for the money, but Chimay is never a bad choice.

Nice amber color. Very malty taste, not like most Trappist. Very copper smell to it. Definitely my least favorite of the six true Trappist still in existence today. Worth a shot if you run into it just because it is one of the six true Trappist.

Smells very full and fruity. The taste is creamy, metallic, and sour berries. Not worth $12! Ashley: F

Chimay red- 7% abv Belgium Cloudy orange-brown pour with sediment. Small amount of head with loose bubbles but long lasting. High carbonation with medium mouthfeel and dry body. Fruity and caramel malt aroma. Spicy yeast, creamy malt, with dark fruit and a hint of molasses. Complex with a lasting earthy finish. This is a classic dubbel. Would pair well with rustic food, hearty cheese, or rich desserts. Although the Rouge serves as an archetype for the style, it doesn't live up to the hype.
