    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.
