I was thinking the same thing but no I don't think so, the first one they came out with was the Quad, then the Stout with Coffee and Cocoa and the Quad with Cherries, now I guess this is just the Stout.

It's fully decent which I'd expect for over fifteen bucks. The fruit is tangy and medium-bodied, so there's some sour elements and spicy aspects from the Brett and also the pie spicings, and what seems like pumpkin character... it won't knock your teeth out for sheer intensity of flavor but it's fairly unique and worth grabbing one.

The Vitus is as expected a wheat ale on steroids with bigger spiciness and fruit density in flavors with some balancing hops.

Liefmans Goudenband - LCBO#: 159227 | 330 mL bottle
Kriek De Ranke - LCBO# 642040 | 750 mL bottle

I'm a fan of both - especially the small bottle format of the Liefmans - so hoping for some availability soon.

Haven't seen that Kriek De Ranke yet, but De Ranke Bitter XX is showing on their site now (no stock yet though):

Did it look as though you could actually place an order? I called helloLCBO earlier this morning and they told me that it was a private order for a business that wasn't available to retail consumers. Have been waiting for this for months now as I'm down to my last couple bottles from the brewery, so will be pretty choked if it was available, even if only for a brief period.

Sorry, don't know. I didn't do anything more than click the link someone posted, out of curiosity about the price.

LCBO released A&G without Keep 6 knowledge apparently.

I looked order-able. But I stiffened up at the price.

A little surprised, when returning some empties to come across singles of Weihenstephaner dunkel. Priced something around 3.60, definitely a good option from tbs. on the other side of the coin, I almost grabbed a 6 or smuttnose robust Porter, thinking maybe a new shipment had come in. Checked the bottle and got a bb date of early 2016 :o . Keep up the good work, beer store
