    I might come over later today, as well as tomorrow. Any news from the people there on what's available to taste and take-away?

    The golden Blend in the package has some honey.

    8 A&G is a bit too much imho.

    The framboos with the farm raspberries is really fucking good. I like the idea of a 12pk this year and not delaying singles of anything *super* crazy, but that inside list is insane. I’ve been processing the new labels and prepping pages for all of the new beers for once OBD is over and haven’t stopped being sad that I’m not there.

    I would've preferred more (or some) OG. But the idea of bundles is okay with me. Just happy we drove today. I usually take the train and I wouldn't have been able to even take home that much beer

    The Speling that's 90% Framboos and 10% blueberry is crazy good. Better than the new Framboos imo

    Just arrived and have to say the logistics seem significantly improved over last year. The staff also seems way more relaxed because of this. Must be good for them.

    Now for some frambozen lambiek!

    Agree. I understood they are phasing out all non-3F lambic from their products. This means OG will eventually end of life, or replaced by what is now A&G. Kind of sad, because I definately enjoy the difference between the two (and often prefer OG).

    I usually prefer OG as well. Also, it's half the price.

    Agreed, OG > A&G.

    Yeah, those on-site blends are nuts. Surprised how good that 85% strawberry one was, although the 40% one would do better with time. Only thing that would make it better would be if there were new perzik and/or abrikoos bottles too.

    The schaarbeekse kriek + kriek that was on sale is not the same beer as the speling kriek - kriek.
    The schaarbeekse one is a blend of schaarbeekse kriek that was blended by accident with a batch of regular kriek.
    The speling kriek - kriek is a blend of different kriek macerations.
