    Sorry for the uninformed question but how frequently does Etre update their site with new product?

    Got an email from Ms. Van Roy herself. No more online sales.

    Not as a complaint but more of a general concern, when I was out at the Lambik-O-Droom last weekend there was a local bragging about getting three boxes for himself and using five different devices between himself and his girlfriend to secure the boxes during the two sales. Even if he is an enthusiast / hoarder and not a flipper, was definitely a bit of a bummer to hear the worst of our American Beer Culture traits starting to infect the locals. [end rant].

    Also for the record, my woes were quickly drowned out by a murderers row of 15-20€ onsite bottles of 2010-2016 OGV. Great trip and not a disappointing stop in the bunch, but 3Fs service and atmosphere (at both the restaurant and bar locations) makes them truly a god tier operation.

    Thanks for the update. Glad you had a killer time over there and got to enjoy lots of great beers. I'm sure I will survive my FOMO.

    Saw an offhand comment in a facebook lambic.info thread that this is the last year that De Cam Gooikoorts will be blended with Girardin. Did a search of this site, lambic.info, and social, but I did not find any additional information.

    Any more .info on what lambics and at what ages were used for the 2019 blend? I have heard stories that De Cam is tricky to pin down, so all help from SeaWatchman , BelgianChris , Compton25 , NClambicguy , and the other experts is appreciated!
