Are any of these worth the price?
Most every beer is worth the price once. It broadens the palate. Chimay is worth it every time IMO - the Grand Reserve (blue) won't let you down.

I love most every Belgian beer I've ever had. About to crack a bottle of Leffe Blond right now!

Personally, I don't think the Chimay is worth the money. I really enjoy the Maredsous 8 and 10. Especially, the 10 which I think is well balanced for such a big beer. They are reasonably priced at $7.00 for the large bottles and 8.99 for a four pack of 12 oz bottles. There are also several selections of Belgian triples at my local store that are very very good. However, the price being so high is an issue for me.
