Chimay Ale

Scourmont Abbey, SA Bieres de Chimay

Belgium

Nice and sweet, this is the lightest of the three Chimay ales. Not as rich as, say, the Westmalle ales, but still good. Makes me wonder, do the Trappist monks of the Chimay brewery ever meet up with the Westmalle monks for a game of touch football? Or am I the only one who thinks of stuff like that? Really? OK, I'll shut up then. Oh, and check out their website. Who would've thought that monks living in silence could produce such a bitching website? Gotta give them points for that.
