I had a hard time not cracking up in the liquor store! I guess there were 16 people at the party and 15 of them ordered the cheapest malt liquor, and the other one ordered a malty, creamy craft beer!

It's available in smaller bottles, but they're awfully hard to find, at least where I live. The large bottles are everywhere.

Sounds great! I'll be getting a bottle of the red label during my lunch hour! My girlfriend and I will try it while we brew tonight! I'll post both our thoughts. Good notes on tasting protocol, Brewpastor!

I think I'll have one with lunch today and then again tomorrow. Get a running start on the weekend and the taste. Yahoo!

Yeah...I'd say anytime Saturday. We're all in different timezones, so it's hard to set an absolute time. Whoever's first kick off the thread in the Beer Reviews (European in this case).

ah, hell.. I thought we were doing this today (Friday). I guess I'll have to drink the Ommegang Witte tonight and save the Chimay another day.

I'm not picky...tonight would certainly work better for me. Whoever cracks one, crack the thread open! I was planning on hitting the groc on the way home, anyways...not sure how long I will resist the siren call of a semi-exotic beer...

Harris Teeter had all three Chimay's at (what seemed to me to be) reasonable prices. I think I spent $7.

They have both the big and small bottles. Strangely, it was more cost effective to buy the RED in the big bottle, the WHITE in the small bottle, and the BLUE was a wash.
