I think I'm proud to say I've never tried that . I think Chimay would be a great beer of the week. Which one?

I think the Red may be the best for review purposes. My understanding is it's the 'basic' beer of the brewery, and probably best exemplifies the characteristics of a Chimay beer. The white seems a bit hoppier and the blue is really good, but I need to stay on top of my game this weekend long enough to get some yardwork done.

Therefore, I humbly submit Chimay Red as the BOTW.

I'll try that. Never had any of Chimay's beers, but want to start testing different Belgian brews. I've not had good luck finding one that I like, honestly.

I'm certainly no fan of Lambics. If I ever pulled something like that out of my fermenter, I'm sure I'd be dumping it in the bushes in the back yard.

I had a blue recently, and it must have gone south a bit because it was nothing special. I used to LOVE the red, but this blue was boring. Just a so-so from belgium. Being that it's the Candyland of Beers, I expect more than this from even the worse belgium brewers.
