Dark brown in color with that typical Chimay white fluffy head that lasts and lasts. The first thing that hits you is the bubbles, this one is very effervesent. Malty and sweet in smell. Spicy, peppery and malty in flavor. The end aftertaste is much the same with a hint of alcohol that gives that warming feeling.
Now that I have sampled all three Chimay beers I think that I like the Red the best, followed closely by the Blue. All three are very good, I am just a bit partial to the Red. The Blue was still a good pick for my 100th reveiw though.
