The Westmalle strain has a less fruity and more spicy flavor profile than the Chimay. It's a very good yeast, but it won't make for a true clone.

Ah, ok. That's good to know, Sacch. And perhaps appropriate for a dark Belgian to be Dubbel to be drunk in winter. I want to try fermenting directly on a yeast cake, so I think this will be a good candidate.

Thank you so much for this I had seen so much conflicting info on what yeast to use in my chimay clone and glad to read something "official" on it.
