In Reply To #1 Off the top of my head, without looking at my reviews. I'm sure there's something stellar that I forgot. St. Bernardus abt 12 and Prior 8 Ommegang 3Ps Trois Pistoles Don de Dieu La Terrible Do witbiers count? If so, add Whirlwind Wit on there.

In Reply To #1 & all: Belgians make the most interesting and best tasting brews, and BeerPals have figured that out: 4 of the top 5 beers on this site are Belgians. I've tried 2 of those 4, and the other 2 are on my wish list! Faves among the ones I've tried include: Chimay Bleu Orval Rodenbach Leffe Radieuse Duvel It really is impossible to make a list like this, but fun to try anyway. As a class, I like Belgian Strong Ales best, but there are individual beers in other classes that are paired with certain foods, or certain moods... There is no way wine could ever begin to match the complexity and variety offered by BEER.

*In Reply To #6 Wine not as complex as bier?-hmmmmmm looks like a tar baby to me, I'm goin round dat statement! The trappist are my favorites with the exception of the three most common in the states. Other favorites: Leffe on draught is just fine (good bet stateside), and Hummel in its native county is not to be missed. Most any of the Belgis are just jolly, except for the ones with happy crap in them like seeds, spices, and additional flavors. I can hang with the Lambrics, and that weird infected crap, Gueze? Pronounced like guuzzzzzzzzzzz is pretty ok. One observation I have mentioned before is in any given location in Belgium (and damn near any place else), the locals drink some version of Pils, our favorites tend to be tourist brews. The fellow who taught me homebrewing once said: "If you have ever mess up a batch, chances are you have produced a regional specialty in Belgium". Reply#9 Belgians are from Belgium, any place else, "style".

I have question, when you say "Belgian" do you mean "Belgian Style" or beers that are actually from "BELGIUM?"....I see a lot of lists on this thread that show beers of the Belgain style that are NOT brewed in Belgium. Just curious.

In Reply To #9 Usually, when talking about beer, "Belgian" is in reference to the style. I'm guessing he meant Belgian style, because he included Canadian born Unibroue in his list.
