I'm really digging this Founders PC Pils, very floral hop, rounded, some nice minerality, lemony citrus. It has the crisp character of lager fermentation with the round pale fruit of APA.
If anything it's slightly insistent in the lemony-resiny hops and that makes it a departure from the classic European model some people could legitimately disagree with.
But I'm sure this would session just fine.

That's the 330ml capped bottle - decent price. Years ago the 250 ml bottles were 1.95, although that was paying for more weight of glass per ml. Grab a case or two and enjoy for a few years!

Now I just wonder if we will get the cool black Dupont label design, or the 'butterfly' one that is usually reserve for the Bio version & in our market they have used to print bilingual labels. Ontario loves being special.

The Beersel Gueuze is 375ml cork & cage bottle which AFAIK can be aged longer than most capped bottles.

What's the deal with the Omnipollo? Is it going to get larger distribution or do I need my way to a non-local LCBO?

I picked up a couple of the omnipollo about a month ago when I was in Waterloo. Tasty beer, but I wouldn't be personally going out of town to track it down. Strange distribution though. On that note, Founders products also seem to have quite strange distribution and stock

Went to Summerhill hoping to find some Saison Dupont, but was surprised to see a bunch of Bons Voeux instead. Same batch as before, but not sure if it's a new shipment, or whether they're still pulling cases out of the warehouse. Odd for Summerhill to give shelf space in the cold room to a delisted beer on clearance, so who knows, maybe it's a regular listing now? $5.55.
Here's to the slow path.

for a beer that used to sit on the shelf, it's amazing how excited we all for it to return. Shame on the LCBO for getting rid of it.

I had a old 750ml bottle from LCBO on the weekend. 2013 Bottle date, still drinking well.

Old? I have SAQ-era bottles (2004?) that are still good.

If stored properly, this beer is pretty much indestructible, imo

Saison DUPONT

Yup. I've never had a problem with slightly dusty grimy old bottles from Consumers Beverage Buffalo NY. They were tasty as hell.
I believe 'Vieille Provision' means they are properly bottle-conditioned to last, literally as a meal replacement.

Bet you some people bought a few Bons Vouex for 6.95 and forgot about them. These would seem to be Xmas stock remnants the LC concentrated in a few locations, and of course they are certainly alive and kicking - specially bottled once a year and would age well for years still.
