Just north of the French border lies Chimay, a town in the Belgian forest of Mont du Secours. In 1850, Trappist monks built a Cistercian Abbey there as a place to study, pray, and work. In 1862, the monks added a dairy and a brewery to the Abbey to help generate funds for their livelihood. Soon, they started making cheese from milk produced at the dairy, which became quite popular at the local marketplace. Our Chimay cheese is a variation of their original recipe, but is even more special, as the rind is washed with their famous Chimay beer rather than ordinary spring water. This new variety developed an incomparable flavor that delighted the nose as well as the palate. The cheese is semi-soft and has a nutty, well-finished flavor with just a hint of hops and malt. While its aroma is quite strong, the taste of the cheese itself is somewhat mild but not at all bland.
  • Made from scalded cow's milk.

Really Good!
I love this cheese. Well flavored with just a hint of the beer. It's a fairly soft cheese.

Chimay Trappiste with Beer
This is good, but not my style even with Chimay Blue. The cheese was in excellent condition upon arrival, but bitter on finish to taste.

Yummy
This was part of our own composed assortment and is delightful. We like variety in our cheeses and this is excellent

An interesting cheese
As a fan of Chimay Trappiste beer I was drawn to this cheese and knew I had to try it. I have never had anything quite like it. It's incredibly soft and the color of it reminds me of pale ale. The flavor is amazing! However, one may be caught off guard by the bitterness of the hops it leaves behind. I highly suggest having this cheese with a strong cured meat or a crusty bread and a tall beer! I don't recommend coffee or anything sweet paired with this. A mild red wine might work.

One of my favorites
This is one of my favorite cheeses. It is very pungent though (so be forewarned). It is a very soft port salut style cheese. The beer washed rind offers a nice astringency to the taste. This cheese isn't for everyone, I would rate it a strong cheese in terms of smell and taste but very good. When it reaches room temperature it is very soft and spreadable, but I find it excellent at colder temperatures as well. I also find it is a great melting cheese that can be used in sandwiches or recipes that call for this type of cheese.

Super cheese
I like strong cheese (stinky)and this is as good as it gets without being too strong.

Certainly a Love or Hate Cheese!
It's no wonder the reviews for this cheese are all over the map... it's the sort of thing you either enjoy, or find disgusting. Luckily I find it to be quite nice, but some of the other people I've shared it with have not.To be more objective, this cheese is softer than I expected, almost bordering on a spread as it approaches room temperature. Chimay suggets letting this cheese warm up before eating it, but I think I prefer mine cooler. I suppose if you were eating it on crackers then room temp would be fine, but if you enjoy cheese by itself like I do, then this one is a little better off if it's cooler.As for the taste, I wasn't really all that impressed. It has a rather pungent odor that is quite unlike any cheese I've ever tried. There was also a very little difference between this and the Chimay Grand Cru. I was hoping to detect subtle hints of Chimay's wonderful beer, but they were buried beneath the strong smell and taste of the cheese itself.Overall, you're better off with the Chimay Vieux if you really want to try one of their cheeses. I wouldn't really suggest this cheese unless you know you like funky cheeses, and want something a little different from the usual funk.As a side note; if you haven't tried one of Chimay's beers, then you're missing out on some of the finest beer in the world. Pick up a Chimay Grand Reserve (Blue Cap) and you'll never look at beer the same way again. Enjoy!

Disappointed
To begin, I am a big time beer snob.I purchased this cheese anticipating a delightful experience combining it with my favorite Chimay Blue Label Grande Reserve.The cheese arrived on time and in perfect condition. However, the flavor was really disappointing. I tried various crackers but nothing significantly improved the taste. It did not pair well with Chimay’s own beer (which it a truly spectacular world class product).Chimay’s website provides a recipe for its use as a fondue. Perhaps that is its true calling. But on its own or paired with fine Chimay beer it falls flat.

perfect for my use
I had been looking for a replacement for a specialty cheese from Austria (Pinzgauer) for a farmers dish. It required a strong cheese that melts easily over spaetzle. This is as close as it comes to the original.
