Beer Review: Chimay Première (Red)

I got my hands on this famous trappist ale last year and have been drinking it regularly since. These are the costliest beers available and they’re amazing to smell and taste. Chimay Red pours a reddish brown, and the head is thick and creamy white and leaves a rich lacing. You can smell and taste the caramel malts immediately, and other smells and flavours reveal themselves as you get to know the drink better. It’s dangerous how a brew this strong can be so deceptively sweet – Chimay Red is high in alcohol strength (7% or 8%, I don’t remember), I suggest you don’t have these on an empty stomach because I was writhing on the floor after two pints. This is a very complex beer that cannot be understood in one or two tries, but don’t even expect to be overwhelmed by it. Is this the best trappist beer India will get to taste? I hope not!

RATING: 4/5

    This was my favorite Chimay till I had the Tripel.
    I love the spicy pepperiness of this one though!
