    So, was just curious to see what the fellow BA's were thinking about this beer. Noticeably less in cost than M8 was last year, and i would think a higher bottle count *maybe*. But the addition of white oak sap has to be a concern. has the bruery corrected their sap infection issues from last year? Has anyone tried it yet? The Hoarder Society beers last year were very good (though i never had french oak bois). Think it would be worth trying to trade for one now or wait to see if it has contamination issues?

    Guessing roughly 2700 bottles of this. Everything I have heard so far is good and not indicating infection; so, I guess they've got that under control.

    It's a sour so I don't think infection is a concern.

    The price should not be compared to Melange #8 because it was one of the most costly beers they ever made as it had $125/lb. coffee in it. Melange series is just a series of blends, the price is going to depend on what is in it.
