    It's time to contact the wife of the cousin of my brother in law uncle who live in Europe to mule these beers.

    Would they be anchoring a large bag down their throat also so they can retrieve it once they've left the brewery and then you get a handbottled version with low carbonation and the wife of the cousin of my brother in law uncle's saliva in it?

    Hopefully she can go to the bathroom and handbottle these beers :) At the end of the day, I believe there will be bottle of it floating around like Zwanze 2011.

    For sure, you'll also need someone to saw off one of your body parts or give up your 1st born to get it.
     
  7. This made me think of Ferris Bueller
     
  8. Well let me just book a flight right this goddamn minute.

    Do you know when it'll be released, exactly? Because I'll be there in mid-May...
     
  11. I am on the edge of my seat here.

    Probably not then, it sounded like end of 2012 more likely beginning of 2013 so I'd say sometime between november and february but that's just my guess.
     
  13. I'm so glad I got to tick this one at DLD last year - if I hadn't, I'd be obsessing over making yet another trip to Brussels. Oh, wait, maybe I should be obsessing anyway...

    Either way im excited, maybe they will bring something else back like Loerik.
     
  15. kind of hard to bring back an accidental beer.

    Pretty sure with your deep cellar, you can land it.

    Yeah, Loerik's a delicious mystery in the Cantillon portfolio with the most badass label...
     
  20. The first time I had it I wasn't blown away. Every bottle since has been stellar. I wish they'd go back to the cartoon like labels. There have been some great ones over the years:

    Who is the illustrator? Reminds me of MAD magazine.

    Yeah it really does. They're kinda neat though, IMO.

    Why thank you sir, I hope so.
     
  24. Louis-Michel Carpentier. He worked on Tintin and some other famous Belgian comics. The character in all of these labels is Poje and he comes from Carpentier's series "Du Cûté de Chez Poje" which is about Poje's pub in Brussels.

    Oh I didn't know that, thanks for the tip.

    Yeah, it's not super obvious. Everyone's still getting used to this new software.
     
  28. Obviously the first label "La Gueuze du Poje" was made especially in honor of the character.
     
  29. If its really on site only, thats really lame.
     
  30. When are those labels from?
     
  31. Loerik is 1998, the others are probably later 80's/early 90's. The character first came out in 86 or so.

    I have a set of coasters that Carpentier did for Cantillon at home that might have dates on them. I'll check when I get home.

    Is there any official word on this?

    rvdoorn Savant (440) Netherlands Jun 4, 2009

    what is official, Jean told me and others, I guess that is official enough no? He also mentioned however, that there may be distribution to pubs as well (kind of like zwanze day), so also to the US.

    I was at Cantillon today and saw something that put a smile on my face.

    They also still had bottles of Zwanze 2011 for on site consumption for 14 euros which was a nice surprise.

    What's really ridiculous is that wall of bottles is at least 2 if not 3 layers deep.

    Man, I hope RR gets a keg like Zwanze.

    Michael - I hope you found a way to create a diversion and sneak a few of those home in your luggage...:D
