Chimay Première (Red)

I’ve been drinking the Chimay range for years, both in the UK and in Belgium and what has always struck me about the Red is the simplistic balance of the beer. In some ways I find this particular beer somewhat “unBelgian”, but it remains a consistently excellent drink.

Not especially attractive color to the pour, nor does it produce a wonderful looking head, but it’s a beer I can rely upon. A simple balance across the board make it a lovely drink to enjoy slowly, especially with food.

The malty sweetness and alcohol are perfect partners.

I prefer the smaller bottles rather than the 750 mL I am reviewing here. I have no idea why that would be, but it seems to be the case.
