Other Information

Chimay Red, a revered Trappist beer from Belgium, is a shining example of the country’s esteemed brewing traditions. Brewed within the walls of Scourmont Abbey, this ale is a hallmark of the Chimay Brewery’s commitment to quality and heritage. With a 7% ABV, Chimay Red captivates with its beautiful coppery colour and creamy head, making it visually appealing as it is delightful to taste. Its aroma, a delicate fusion of fruity apricot notes stemming from fermentation, complements its flavour profile—a harmonious balance that enhances the beer’s fruit nuances. This traditional Belgian beer is an exquisite representation of Trappist craftsmanship, best enjoyed at cellar temperature (10 – 12°C) to fully appreciate its depth and complexity. For those seeking to experience a piece of Belgium’s rich brewing legacy, Chimay Red is available at Beers of Europe.

    This beer has subtle wheat and malt flavours. I did find it enjoyable but maybe felt that the flavours can be bolder. Not too carbonated and smooth. 3.25/5 for me.

  2. DSK

    Maybe I’m being too sentimental about Chimay as it was my first Belgian Beer experience, but I do find the Red to be particularly enjoyable. It’s crisp, flavourful and has just the right amount of that musty Abbey-style taste. It’s a classic.

  3. Ben Jones

    Superb beer. Very much like a good Dunkel for me, good malty flavour and plenty of booze to remind you it’s a 7% beer.

  4. John mc

    Strong rich easy to drink the original chimay brew available before the blue .Although not as stronge as the blue its nevertheless has the same richness of taste. Highly recommended
    My particular favourite is a chimay red followed by a blue

  5. Kristin

    lacks complexity, but nevertheless pleasant drinking

  6. Richard Bradley

    Perfectly drinkable, pleasant Belgian beer, would give it 4.5 if I could, but there are better available on this site

  7. Philip Ensor

    Chimay red is my favourite beer bar none. The alcohol kick at 7% is pretty potent so it needs to be treated respectfully. The Belgian brown beer style is – for me – a good blend of wheat beer and old school mild but sweeter and more powerful. I’m no pro when it comes to describing beers so I’ll go no further than that. Gorgeous.

  8. Dom

    I think Chimay Red is one of my fav beers in the 7-8% category. Strong and rich in taste, always a pleasure to drink.

  9. Chris Meechan

    My least favourite of the Chimay beers. Sweet, rich and strong but there isn’t much else going on.

  10. salim ahmed

    Lovely belgium beer, settles nicely on the tongue, sweet malty after taste and strong enough to make you smile!

  11. WJ

    Tasting small Belgium beers is a great experience and this didn’t disappoint. Slighty fruity flavour and lovely brownish red colour.

  12. Eddie

    I’ve had this beer before and was looking forward to it but it ultimately disappointed. A 330ml bottle pours a brown beer with a red tinge and complementary head. The beer just seemed lacking but difficult to say exactly why. I have another bottle in the same box and will sample this very soon.

  13. Bernard Hawcroft

    Rich and full flavoured, the epitome of an Abbey beer. Worth the money

  14. Ben L

    Nice copper colour and creamy head. Malty and sweet too, with an underlying fruitiness. Would buy again.

  15. David Winter

    Fruit, malt, not much complexity – not a lot of the rich dark fruit/caramel/bitter/spice flavours I would expect with the best strong ales or dubbels. Quite nice for light drinking, but Chimay Blue is more substantial.
