Steve’s Beer Advent Calendar Day 11 – Chimay – Red

By Mike @mikescraftbeer

From Belgium I have the Chimay Strong Ale.

It pours a cloudy baked cake brown that allows very little light through. The carbonation is noticeable but lazy with bubbles almost meandering to the top to join the very white head of medium bubbles.

The nose has banana, clove and a fruity ester.

The flavours again show banana and a an acrid mineral quality which actually mellows the banana nicely. The carbonation is sharp on the tongue and very noticeable because of the very light body.

Commercial Description:

The Chimay Red is the oldest of the Chimays. Its coppery color and sweet, fruity taste make it a particularly tasty dark ale.
