ST LOUIS GUEUZE FOND TRADITION SOUR BELGIUM ALE
LCBO 371880 | 375 mL bottle
PRODUCT DISCONTINUED*


There is 42 cases in the Ottawa warehouse from what I can see. I think there was a decent amount in Ontario, I think it just sold fairly quick.

thanks for the info. Would a 'case' of this beer be 12 or 24 bottles?

Just picked up a few at Hunt Club/Merivale. They had 72 in stock this morning.

I picked up 10 or so last week, thinking I should top off. It's pretty solid - and good til 2022.

Looks like there's a ton of the Gueuze left at Queens Quay and Summerhill LCBOs.

Drank one last night. Very much enjoyed it. Somewhat surprised at it's 'style' rating on RB.

Probably because you haven't had the top beers in that style, and lack an accurate point of reference.

Its a snappy comment, but its probably accurate... the style is top-loaded by extremely hard to get and rare gueuze one-offs from obscure and popular breweries alike.

Meeeeeow! I drink what comes in, sweetheart. :D

Odd though, since none of the beer in this style rate at 100 for style.. which means there must be no point of reference to what the perfect gueuze is at all LOL!
