Chimay Premiere 7%
This is a good beer to use as a steak tenderizer. Not so strong and not so dark to make the steak taste like chocolate. I don’t dislike this beer aka Chimay Red.
After tasting so many Belgian beers I come to realize that Chimay is not that good. When demand is high and your main business is not making beer you cut corners. You don’t use the best ingredients and hope the brand is well known to trick beer drinkers into thinking that a beer made by monks is awesome.
A slight aroma of bread and nuts. It pours with little head that takes off quick and becomes flat. Not a lot of taste but more of alcohol. Some bitterness. At room temp it starts to taste like Orval. In a very bad way.
Not much to say about Chimay. I used to idolize it. In the same way that monochromatic beer drinkers like Miller lite.
The Belgian magic was gone a long time ago.
