"Covered with forests and pastures and crossed by numerous rivers, the countryside of Chimay has always been a livestock-rearing area. And dairy herds mean cheese! Since 1876, the Trappist monks of Scourmont have known the secrets of making this semi-hard cheese made from good milk from their farm and matured in the vaulted cellars of the abbey. Today, Chimay cheese is made exclusively with regional milk and the Trappist monks have modernised their production equipment. Technology has combined with tradition for the greater happiness of the connoisseur and Chimay cheese has adapted itself to high consumption whilst retaining its authenticity." -- Chimay
The 4 cheeses
(all 4 in stock at Forsyth and 3 in stock at Rock Hill)
Chimay Classic Cheese
"A semi-hard pressed cheese, the rind is natural, non-coloured, without preservatives and slightly flowery. After maturing for four weeks, its creaminess and fine taste of good, fresh, creamy milk give it all its flavour." -- Chimay
Chimay Grand Cru Cheese
"From an unchanged ancient recipe, this cheese is produced from pasteurised milk. Its rind is natural and it is matured for six weeks which gives it its pure and mellow flavour." -- Chimay
Chimay Cheese bathed in Trappist Ale
"The very personal preparation and maturing of this cheese make it an exclusive product. Its natural rind is bathed in Chimay Trappist beer so that its incomparable flavour flatters the palate and the nose." -- Chimay
Chimay "Vieux Chimay"
"The gourmet will appreciate the character of this hard cheese made with whole milk and formed through a long and careful period of maturing of a minimum of 6 months. It produces a fruity flavour which persists pleasantly in the mouth." -- Chimay
"Topped with a creamy head, it gives off a light, fruity apricot aroma produced by the fermentation. The taste perceived in the mouth is a balance confirming the fruity nuances noticed in the fragrance. Its taste, which imparts a silky sensation to the tongue, is made refreshing by a light touch of bitterness. To the palate, the taster perceives a pleasant astringency which complements the flavour qualities of this beer very harmoniously. This top fermented Trappist beer, refermented in the bottle, is not pasteurised." -- Chimay
"Named Cinq Cents, this beer with its typical golden colour, its slightly hazy appearance and its fine head is especially characterised by its aroma which results from an agreeable combination of fresh hops and yeast. The beer's flavour, as sensed in the mouth, comes from the smell of hops: above all it is the fruity notes of muscat and raisins that give this beer a particularly attractive aroma. The aroma complements the touch of bitterness. There is no acidity, but an after-bitterness which melts in the mouth.
This top fermented Trappist beer, refermented in the bottle, is not pasteurised." -- Chimay
"Named Grande Réserve, it is principally distinguished by its character of a strong beer. This is a beer whose fragrance of fresh yeast with a light, flowery rosy touch is especially pleasant. Its flavour, noticed when tasting it, only accentuates the pleasant sensations perceived in the aroma , while revealing a light but pleasant touch of roasted malt. This top fermented Trappist beer, refermented in the bottle, is not pasteurised." -- Chimay
Chimay Blue 2008 Magnum
"If you think that Magnum is just a Chimay Blue in a 150 cl (51 fl.oz.) bottle, you are forgetting one essential fact, for it is important to appreciate that a large volume of beer affects the development of taste in the second fermentation of the beer in the bottle and gives it a fuller and smoother character. A vintage like its little sisters of 33 (11.2 fl.oz.) and 75 cl (25.4 fl.oz.), Magnum Grande Réserve may be conserved in dark conditions for several years. This is how the beer acquires a light and pleasant taste of port. Convivial and festive, the Magnum is a must for the connoisseur." -- Chimay
