    At the same time, the Braam will be released outside the ToF-series as well. Barrel macerated and with organic blackberries from Ferme Framboos.”

    I think the meaning in the email was that Braambes is now in the broader lineup and not a ToF experiment, rather than an eventbrite reservation option.

    That’s how I read it in the email. Tough choice today. Not sure if I can justify another $300 on lambic

    For me, I'm oddly most excited about the four OG's (from blend notes: "this is a geuze to age!") and the one bottle of A&G with 4yr lambic in the blend.

    Not a huge fan of Mure Tilquin, which makes me bearish on Braambes, and I feel like I have more Hommage than I need already. The SvhL bottle is a nice add, though: a dramatically different kind of Hommage.

    You can likely buy the OG and A&G on Etre if you don’t want the fruits. I saw that description “this is a gueuze to age” on one of the new bottles.

    I agree about Mure, but think that 3F can prob do it a touch better. I also have too much hommage to care.

    Nice! This may still be sitting locally because of pricetag ($20ish). I’ll lookout for it.

    Yeah they are sitting on the shelf here in Denver because I guess people don't like lambic here anymore. About $20/per and like $80 on the mixed four packs.

    The Vat 92 is really delicious.

    Guessing that means Etre/BiaB proxy isn’t happening this time around with the “no shipping” added or am I mistaken? (Please be the case)

    There were a few sales where Cantillon shipped directly to people. I’m sure all the Cali people that had boxes returned by customs fucked things up there.

    The Cantillon online sales just go up through the normal Store page on their website right?

    Last year I clicked on the link on their Facebook announcement (purely arsed it). It redirects to a billet web page. I can't say if they had a link on their store page.

    Best way is to follow their fb account the sell will not go through their website, too many connections and it will crash...

    Ya...I was in the queue, got through to booking and it said there were 10 boxes left. Clicked book and naturally they were all gone.

    Oh well. Maybe next year.
