the finish (victory?) at Cantillon.

|Location of our first beer of the trip|
|Seriously. The entire country looks like a damn postcard.|
|More history, less brewery in action. Loved the Bruges Zot!|
|Typical lunch setting. Park the bikes, set up a picnic, |
pinch myself to prove it's really real.
|It wasn't all biking, beer and goofing off. This is the Last Post |
ceremony--conducted every day to honor the war dead. Poignant.
After the tour ended, we were off to Luxemburg City for about 30 hours. I think I'm going to let the photos do the talking.
|Memorial celebrating Luxembourg's freedom|
|Luxemburg City. A city divided by a massive ravine.|
|As we do here in the States, Luxemburg City had an art installation |
involving tons of these fun little elephant statues. This one
reminded me of Belgium with the giant wind turbines!
|I wasn't kidding about that ravine!|
|Sadly I won't be drinking these hops next year. |
I don't think De Plukker will be distributing to the U.S. for awhile.
The Keikoppen bier (blond) poured a hazy deep straw color with a huge craggy white head. It had a great--and very refreshing--citrus aroma. The flavor is well balanced with the hops having just a bit of an edge. Lots of good beer flavor, a hint of pepper, good amount of citrus. Very smooth. Maybe it was the heat or exhaustion influencing my notes, but I thought this was an excellent beer.
