Whoa, pretty good. Mostly new stuff here. Excited for Rodenbach Caractère Rouge, and it's going to sell for less than Vintage? Nice price on Timmerman's too.

Nice... list looks promising for sure. Let's see how old those IPAs are though by the time they hit the shelves (and likely on many unrefrigerated shelves; especially the one from New Zealand).

that and the Jacobins Kriek are too sweet.
I'm convinced that Rodenbach's changed their recipes up over the last 2 years. Alexander and CR are grossly sweet.

I can assure you that there will be one more surprise added to that list (for March/April).

Is it likely the last one we had was the 'European' version, which has not been produced in a while.

This new release should then be the more intense / better-received one. Different beers.

** correction BOTH versions are the 'American' one which does not feature the added neck bottle sticker saying SOUR in all caps. **

Never tried either of those. But I find other Rodenbachs a bit too sour, so happy to try one cut with some fruit.

Now I'm hyped. Anything less than a flood of 3 Fonteinen will be a letdown. :D

Does look like a good release, although the $18.65 price point on the A La Fut offering seems a little severe.

We had the full sour 'American' version last time, so it should be the same beer.
Here's to the slow path.

Anyone excited for the A La Fut? That is actually through my agency, which has been dormant for a while but resurrected when I began working with ALF.

I realize that the price point is high - but it is a very expensive cost and of course the LCBO does not flex at all on its side when it comes to markups & additional costs. I'm hopeful that folks will find it worth it.
