I believe it's march 2 2016. If the calling was bottled around march, forget it.

Nice tart saison. Buy it. No BB date. Was Bottled in December. Its bottle conditioned so don't worry about it.

I assume the same is true for Rogue 7 Hop. The last time it came to the LCBO is was reasonably fresh and tasty.

Anyone know offhand if the Jolly is going to be released into more of the suburbs stores or is this pretty much it?

2 1/2 months from bottling is pretty typical for Rogue releases in Ontario. It'd definitely be nice to see fresher stock available, but I might still grab a bottle or two. I remember thoroughly enjoying this one last time it was around. Happy to take one for the team and report back with my thoughts. :lol:

^^^^^^ I also remember enjoying it last year, and I remember thinking how well it held up when I drank it vs. the bottling date. I too will pick up a bottle or two and see if I enjoy it as much this time around
