I had a couple of those. They were fine, but didn't really do it for me. To each their own and all that.

yeah, not as good as the lime version. tequilla and lime just work better as a combo I think

Drinking one of the Bourgogne des flandres you linked up above right now. I thought it was just a belgian blonde, but it's blended with Timmermans lambic?!

I honestly thought this was great, but it's definitely a novelty.

Really liked the Mas Agave Grapefruit.

Must have missed the Mas Agave Lime version was that this year?

They emailed me that a Highball Drifter is being released in August hopefully comes here, part of the barrel aged series.

Don't think it's ever been at the LCBO or anything if that's what you're asking. I got it at founders in Detroit, a couple weeks before covid lockdown started. At the time it was just called 'Mas Agave', there was only the one version.

Yep thanks that's what I was asking if it had been at the LCBO.

Thought maybe I was having a seniors moment.

Yeah, I thought I had missed out as well! It also comes in a prickly pear version, which gets good reviews. Hopefully I'll get the chance to try one of them someday.

It’s a very interesting ‘beer’. One where I couldn’t decide whether I loved or hated it from sip to sip.
That's the way she goes. Sometimes she goes, sometimes it doesn't. She didn't go. That's the way she goes.

Agreed, had one on the weekend. Hated the first sip, enjoyed the second and then went back and forth till I finally dumped the last little bit left in my glass. :lol:

I really enjoyed the first half but found by the time I got to the second half it was a bit too much.

Since I ordered 1xsingle bottle from the LCBO and they sent me 1x4-pack, I've got 3 more to try. Was thinking I might mix one with a saison to see if it tames it a bit.

Guys, are there any beers currently in stock at the LCBO that resemble Brooklyner-Schneider Hopfen-Weisse? It's a perfect summer beer and I really miss this.
