182/1767) Home:  Chimay Gold by Bières de Chimay NV of Belgium:  **;  4.8*;   mildly fruity, yeasty nose;  I found the flavours more yeasty than fruity, at least until the finish;  it's not quite as unspeakably wonderful as the balance of Chimay's lineup but I would buy it again;

This is brewed at Scourmont Abbey, a Trappist monastery.  A favourite cheese that I purchase regularly at St. Lawrence Market is sold with the rind soaked in Chimay.  It is wonderful.

183/1768) Home:  Against the Current Blackcurrent Kettle Sour by Wellington Brewery of Ontario:  *1/2;  5.5%, 18 ibu;  brewed with blackcurrants and lactobacillus brevis;  very tart nose;  tart, dry, lemony flavours;
