Your passion for wine is not the least bit contagious but I appreciate the joy you get out of it and Wow those places are gorgeous. I'm not sure why you carry all those bottles, they make boxes for wine.
Seriously, thanks for the time you take posting so often. Looking forward to the rest.
Well maybe if you stop drinking wine from the box, I could get you hooked on the stuff

There is an interesting Monastery vineyard just south of Colorado Springs in Canon City called Holy Cross Abbey. I can't tell you if their wine is good our not as I am not a wine aficionado, but I have ridden down there with a bunch of ADV guys so they could by some of their wine. So, if you are ever in the area, here is one for you to check out!

Say hi to my bro

Just picked up 3 Chimay's, one of each. I figure one of them should go with the T-bone I have set aside to grill tonight.

Thanks!
Enjoy your Chimay
They sell twice as much blue as they do the red and white.
The blue is my favorite.
And another trivia question/answer for you
The white is their triple but they call it "Cinq Cents".
It was named after the "500" anniversary of the town of Chimay
The red is called "Premiere" because it was the first beer brewed after WWII and the reconstruction of the brewery using the original recipe.
And the blue is the "Grand Reserve". It was originally only brewed around Christmas time but it became so popular that they stated brewing it all year long.
Facts straight from the man who knows

FOUL!!!!!
WRONG GLASS!!!!!!!!!!
Funny thing is here in Belgium, each beer has it own glass. Every one has a slightly different shape and they all have their own logo on them
I had the D.T.
It doesn't come close to Chimay.
You might have the wrong glass, but you definitely have the right beer
Yum!
And BTW, the blue Chimay is only about 1.50 Euro here (about $2)

Again I am sleepy and I am going to bed.
Check back later if you are interested
Good night
Hey Dutchman, you can not crown the best beer in the world until you've had a Castle, Castle light or a Black Label in South Africa....Let me know when you head that way.

Well, I am confident "Castle light" would not be the winner

Great RR, Great guy!!!
I had the honour to invite Ed to our humble house in Liedekerke, a small town near Brussels!

For two nights and three days the flying dutchman stayed in Belgium, a small but great country! We drove together ca 300 km.

We had two things Ed liked, beer and .... Beer.
We can't say we tasted them all, because otherwise he and I would be dead drunk!

It was really an enormous pleasure to meet the great traveller who was allmost a superstar in my eyes! I look up at him with great respect and he left us all yesterday with tears in our eyes!

My wife said she never met a guy like you! A true gentleman, a prince on a black and yellow horse, a man with a filosophy and a determination like no one we have met before!

He had to do it, the trip, he said so many times! And he s doing it, all day, untill he will find what he's looking for!

You make women wet and men dream about how you live YOUR life!
(The romantic things, we did this morning, but i know of who she was thinking ;-) !

Ride on my friend!

My limit is $25 per bottle so I really don't want to learn anything because then things will get out of control. I have to retire someday so i can live the dream (see Around The World in 800 Days). Keep it up. But if you do happen to make it to the right place I'd love to see how they get that sweet nector of the God's into the box.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop here, and convey your experience. As a vet, it did also touch me.

Gone but not forgotten.

Salute.

Mary

Well Ed, I will say that you have a good RR going and I have enjoyed and supported you to the fullest but you must have really poured on the charm or this gentleman's wife/girlfriend had some great looking girlfriends that worked at a winery/brewery? A little thick but I am sure you are most of it. Keep having a great time and sharing. Thanks.

I didn't see this one on your table - one of my favorites - Saison Dupont

Being a beer person - the wine reports are nice - but the Chimay report rocked. Thanks
