    I know where I will be sometime between 4 and 6 next Wednesday.

    Some Meddler and the NFL....should be a perfect combination.

    I must have this . . . time to see what I can get to swap for this, or call my buddy in Co.

    Anyone tried it yet? I have not been to the store recently to see if it has made it to Nebraska.

    Yeah, I tried it.

    Decent but not on par with some other local Oud Bruins like Avery's Oud Floris or New Belgiums La Folie. Also, it felt less like a new beer by Odell and more like a marriage of some of their past releases.

    How'd it compare to Saboteur? I've seen it hitting Denver this week.

    I'm going to try it either way, I love Oud Bruins.

    Just tried this yesterday, I wasn't too impressed. I described it to a friend as a soured batch of prune juice. Dark, muddy, a touch of vinegar, tons of plum notes. That being said, the price was right at $15/bottle.

    I really like Saboteur and definitely prefer it to The Meddler.
     
  13. You didn't feel at all ripped off at $15?? I feel it was an $7 bottle. Very disappointing.
     
  14. I much prefer Saboteur to the meddler, but they're two totally different brews..
