Rouge

This is a beer with a pedigree.

This dubbel is the lightest sibling amongst Chimay's heavyweight trio, and an ideal introduction for those who want to get to know Trappist beers. 

The ‘red’ does have less of a body than its ‘blue’ brother. But this copper-coloured beer does have a surprising fruitiness, along with touches of curaçao and coriander. The initial taste is sweet, while the dark malt holds in place the finishing touches of burnt chicory and toasted bread. So, as introductions go, the Rouge does a great job, educating the palate to the broader wonders of the Trappist universe.

Description

The Chimay Rouge was brewed for the very first time back in 1862, although it was a somewhat different beer back then. The biggest leap forward occurred after WWII. Like many other breweries, Chimay had suffered significantly during the 20th-century's wars. When the brewery was rebuilt, after the Second World War, everything was reconsidered, re-thought and re-drawn, with a view to tradition as well as the future.

Fermentation:
The Chimay Rouge is a high fermentation beer that re-ferments in the bottle.
Colour & Transparency: A handsome, dark copper colour that reminds you of falling leaves. The froth is off-white, and the Rouge presents the same yeasty veil as the tripel.
Serving Temperature: 10 - 12°C
Character, Tastes & Aromas: The fruity touches return in the nose, complemented by a smoky touch, brought to life by the Chimay house yeast. In the mouth, hints of liquorice will surprise you, rounded off as they are with the bitter hop aromas. This brown beer is amazingly easy to drink.
Culinary: A delicious pairing with the Chimay Dorée crustless cheese. The fruity aromas of the beer, mingle with those of the cheese, to give a mouth feel of ripe plums. A plum chutney instantly springs to mind as the ideal companion for this cheese.
