Loads of 3 Fonteinen at Wilson/Dufferin LCBO, some in the cold beer room, some stacked out in front.


If you're coming down Allen from the north take Transit Road and cross Wilson, Google Maps will have you going down to Yorkdale road and back up Dufferin

all I can say is wow, this is the best sour I've ever had.

bear in mind I haven't tried any of the mythical rare cantillons yet, just the more readily available cantillons at beer bistro.

wow.........going back to buy more of these, can't wait to age them.

Bought three from this store too...there's lots...hard to decide between two or three bottles. Also, I didn't wait long enough until I was out of the car and some of it gushed. Only lost about 2 oz to the carpet. Good thing lambics don't smell! :P

It's dry, sour, and delicious, but quite drinkable. 3 bottles is probably enough for me...

I had mine out of the car and sitting for 2 whole days and I too had a gusher.

Wilson/Dufferin has been kind of an anomaly for releases like this. They often seem to have very large allocations from the seasonal releases and they hang around much longer than at, say, Summerhill. Back when everyone was losing their shit trying to get Orval, Wilson/Dufferin had over 100 bottles just hanging out. Same thing happened with Jewbelation 16.

Interesting that its taking this long. Seems like everyone is getting the same message and that is from last Friday onwards...o well whenever it happens it happens. Just hope everyone gets a bit of 3F love.

I don't think this is taking any longer than usual. In fact, for some odd reason, I have noticed that most of these releases get to Ottawa before they get to Mississauga. I wouldn't be surprised to see this pop up in a couple of other stores in the coming days.

All 12 in Guelph are gone/on hold. 10 bottles (of 24) left on shelf in Uptown Waterloo as of when I left at 1pm (with a bottle for myself, of course!).

Thanks to Matt in Cambridge for the offer though!!! Great community we have here!

Their beer room is insane (by our standards, at least). Why does it have to be up at Dufferin and Wilson?
