Anybody try Chimay Cheese? That stuff is pretty good, kinda smokey or something. I'd like to try some Orval Cheese too, anybody ever have any?

I happen to pick up some Chimay cheese the last time I was in Cincinnati. I am very partial to good stinky cheese.

Jungle Jim's had several Chimay cheeses, and some other Belgian's as well.

Yeah stinky is a good way to describe it, heh. Pretty good though.

Oh so chimay makes more than one, I'll have to check it out.

I'll have to try Jungle Jims, Party Source in Northern KY is closer to me, plus they sell kegs, and have a comparable beer selection so I'm there more often.

I had it several years ago when I was lucky enough to get a tour of the brewery. Our group was at the cafe down the lane from the monastery waiting for our guide to get out of a meeting when I got to try it along with the best (and freshest) Orval beer I'd every had.

IIRC, it doesn't stand out in any particulary way. Not stinky; just kind of a neutral cheese. They served it with mustard and what tasted like celery salt.

I haven't seen it in the US.

Here's a link to the Orval cheese factory.
