I used to drink only BMC , and thought I knew something about beer.

Then I got into craft beer, and after a while thought I knew something about beer.

Then I started home brewing and thought finally I knew something about beer.

I have just had a beer so divine I realize until now, I have known nothing.

Chimay Trappist.

NOW, I know something about beer - I know I just drank the best single beer I have ever had in my life.

Whether a beer is "good or bad" is highly subjective. So don't get too excited as you still may know nothing.

Yeah - kinda my point in a way - I have been humbled and taught a lesson - there is always a great beer out there just waiting on you to find it!


Man that stuff was good though!

You should try to clone it, that will definitely be a learning experience.

Buy a bottle and age it for a year or 2+, it will blow your mind

Well, I bought the Sampler - a red , a blue and a white. And th guy at the beer shop said you'll want another red, trust me - so I got one. Popped the cap as soon as I was on my property - it had warmed to a nice 50ish area of temp on the ride - and it was heaven.

I can only imagine what aging will do. So yeah, I'mma hit this sampler over the next few days ( so as not to let them overlap ) and I'm gonna get me a few to set back with the SN Celebration I have stashed away....

Which one, red white or blue? I like the white (cinq cents) the best. If I don't have a homebrew ready, and I. Can't decide what craft beer to buy, ill grab a bottle of chimay. Definitely one of the best beers I've had

I had a similar experience two nights ago with Jolly Pumkin's Oro de Calabaza.
Wow. It was perfect.
