Chimay Red

Appearance: Burnt Auburn color. Poured a thick white head.

Nose: Sweet, fruity.

Taste: This seemed kind of underwhelming in my opinion for what I was expecting. People have always talked up Chimay to me (Though they said that White was excellent and Blue was a close second (I think)) So I am looking forward to the next. Anyway...

It didn't seem like the yeast character was coming through as much as I was expecting it to. A nice hint of toffee came through, but it was just a mellow sweetness. A bit nutty... not much lasting power on the flavor though.

Mouthfeel: It was nice and mellow, but the carbonation bit me quite a bit at the end... I no likey.
