A: poured from 33cl bottle into the Chimay wide-mouth glass that came in the gift set. Lots of carbonation, a fair amount of head; beautiful copper look.
S: mmmm, cinnamon! Lots of spice overtones too. But the smell of cinnamon lingers in my glass even after the beer's gone. Delicious.
T/M: hello carbonation! The spice and sweetness hit you first, but not too sharply in either direction. A smooth finish and mild aftertaste leave you wanting more. Well balanced.
D: certainly smooth enough to session, but watch that ABV. Drinkability isn't a concern of mine when I sit down with this beer, and fortunately Chimay Red doesn't present any challenges in this regard. Cheers!
