Both are delicious. I will abstain from voting.

Didn't you guys know about the new NB Tofu Tripel they have on sale? I'll be serving it on tap later next month!

On an added note, it really bums me hard that some people don't dig Belgians. It's almost offensive to me =(

There should be a third choice. "Both are equally awful".

Tofu, only by a very small margin. I can tolerate either, but also don't like either very much. Green Flash's Belgian styles seem to sit with me best because of their generous use of hops. It's something about the fruity (estery) and/or yeasty and/or wheaty flavor in most of them. Granted, I've only had a little selection, so if I'm doing myself an injustice by missing a great one, please tell me.

I will eat/drink either, tofu lacks depth and is 100% dependent on the skill of the one who prepares it and what they flavor it with, the margin for error is super high. Belgians on the other hand seem like I can just put whatever the heck I want into a fermentor, not worry about temp control, and get something "belgian" in the end. Normally something kind of refreshing IMO (I usually do belgian wheats).

I suggest you have some L'Achouffe. Their Houblon is quite hoppy! Or Achouffe McChouffe if you like scotch ales. They're great belgian brews!

I still don't understand how some folks can't even enjoy Chimay Blue. I swear to god it's like ambrosia.

Since you're in SD and you like hoppy beers, I would strongly suggest Stone Cali-Belgique. It's basically a Stone IPA with Belgian yeast.
