    I was doing some digging earlier and I still have one bottle. Hows this doing now?

    Had one last weekend that was solid. Way better than fresh.

    Nice. The last one I opened about a year ago was just boring.

    I opened one about a month ago. Tasted like a mediocre Sanctification. Still better than fresh.

    Fuck it im holding on for another year. If it's not enamel ripping by the time I drink it in 2017 or so then I will feel more shame than ever.

    Had one maybe 2 months ago. Was pretty good. Like others, better than fresh, and far better than the long dumb period it had.

    It will still never be as good as any real Russian River brett beer!

    You will feel the shame. This beer is unlikely to ever become sour. It wasn't intended to sour as I recall.

    Agreed. It was never to be sour. More like a Tripel with brett Brux. Only nowhere near enough brett effects for years and years.

    I've had this around 6 months ago and then this past weekend. It is still incredible but I believe it is just starting to fall off. I pulled my last 2 out of the cellar and plan to drink them soon, but then again it may come back to be amazing in another year or so.

    I found it to be quite tasty maybe a year and a half ago. Opened one up around 6 months ago and it was really starting to fall off.

    last one i opened was years ago, but honestly it was never worth the hype. just buy sanctification or matilda and call it a day.
