Duvell is another great one to try if you are just getting into Belgians (it's a great beer, period). The new Duvell Pale is also excellent, though I have only ever seen it on draft.

Definition - going stateside:
Returning to the United States from a foreign country.

NEWS FLASH
Dateline: August 21, 1959
Hawaii admitted to the Union!  Becomes the 50th State of the United States of America.

Yeah, but you can look it up. "stateside" itself means the contiguous lower 48. Not sure why that is but that's the way it is.

Regardless, practically speaking the odds are close enough to "0" that anyone who played that lottery was not going to win. I do understand that mathematically speaking there is a big difference between 1 and 0. But practically speaking the difference isn't so great. I'm assuming that when you get that micro drop of beer from me it is not going to be worth even trying to swallow it.  ;)

Chimay is kinda like the gateway beer. Kinda like a Blonde Ale for BMC drinkers. Try the westmalle and St. Bernardus beers next and see if your palate has expanded.

Yeah, I'd consider dry hopping the saison but not maybe not the pils.

Technically speaking the difference between 1 and 10 million and 0 in 10 million is .... uhm ..... one.  ;)

Keith was daydreaming about brewing when they covered probability in math class.

Hey Keith, how bout some poker?   ;)

Ha! Obviously my grasp of probability is sound. You fly my self out to Hawaii for some poker and I'll fly us all back state side with my winnings. Guaranteed.

Looks like you were daydreaming about brewing in geography class too.  Hawaii is stateside.

Contiguous states I meant. when's my airline ticket coming?

If I have 0 cookies and you give my your cookie, I cookie-having-value has increased by an infinite percentage.

OK, let's put it this way. I'll bet you $1000 that no one on this forum will win the Mega Millions jackpot.  My hand is now extended for an electronic handshake.  :D

My odds in winning are so close to 100% that I will round it off and call it certain.  ;)

I love Styrian Goldings and Strisselspalt in a Saison for late addition.  In fact, I think the Saison is more suited to flameout / dry hops than a pilsner, which doesn't have an overwhelming hop aroma.

If you wanted to throw some hops in the whirlpool for one beer, you could drain half the kettle first if you have a counterflow or plate chiller.

German pils doesn't have much, but bo-pils does. Prima pils has an outstanding hop aroma - granted, it's amercian, but it's awesome.
