    I passed on SotN (had enough NG Berliner), but I won't pass on this if it shows up in Madison.

    Up to $2,268 in beer/wine spending for 2013. :oops:

    $10.99 @ Haskell's in Chanhassen. They are using the same SKU as SotN.
  5. They're losing $$ each time they sell one.

    Had mine on Sunday night with Walking Dead! There were some chunks of raspberry in the pour. Like SotN, I think this one needs a couple months before it REALLY shines, but it was delicious. With SotN, I had it the week it was released and again three months later. HUGE difference.

    Good to know, I still have a cold SotN in my fridge, maybe ill bust that out tonight. I had one of my Framboise on sunday watching football, ive got 2 more i can sit on for a while. Mine also had a ton of sediment in the bottom.
  10. Any of this still in bottle shops? I will be here on thanksgiving weewkend.

    It should be. If you can't find it in the city, you might have to search out in the suburbs a bit.

    I picked a FDN up last week at Beer Crazy in Urbandale, Iowa. I missed the first one, excited to try this one.

    They must have just gotten it! I was there on Saturday and they didn't have any.

    SipIt Aficionado (205) Minnesota Jul 18, 2013

    Yeah, the Nova posted FdN on Facebook on Mon. I think I'm going to head out there on Fri for a couple more growlers of TG brews. Both Pseudo Sue and Golden Nugget are awesome!

    Ooooh, another I need to try. Seeing it will be Black Friday and all, I'm sure my wife will be spending her fair share, so it's only right for me to do the same! :)

    case upon case at cellar's roseville.
  22. Had this tonight, among quite a few other good beers.
    It was by far the overall favorite.
    I'll be getting more.
    I can see why OP is hoarding it.:cool:

    I really liked the normal SotN, but I didn't care much for this. Really sour and dry, and I thought it almost had a vinegar quality about it. The only fruit beers I've had before are from New Glarus, but this was totally different. I'm not familiar with lambics or sours, but if that's your thing than this might be for you.

    SipIt Aficionado (205) Minnesota Jul 18, 2013

    D@mn, I was only able to grab a couple more bottles of these.

  29. Seeing this every place I stop anymore. Seems to be plenty on the shelves right now. $13.99-$14.99. Cracking mine tonight.
  30. SipIt

    SipIt Aficionado (205) Minnesota Jul 18, 2013

    I agree, it seems there is a lot more than just the original shipment. I picked up two more bottles yesterday for $10.99.

    And I felt this was better than SotN, but both are stellar. I do like Lambics though, and this had some definite similarities.
  32. Cyclone8

    Cyclone8 Savant (415) Minnesota Oct 19, 2011

    It's not a fruit beer, it's a Berliner Weisse, completely different style. That's why it's sour and dry - 'cause it's supposed to be!:)

    Just as an FYI, the Star of the North and #1 and #2 have the same barcode so there may be more than a few stores out there accidentally charging under cost for #2.

    BrettHead Advocate (525) Nebraska Sep 18, 2010

    I imagine the whole series will share the same SKU. As someone who works at a bottleshop, I can't believe how often places don't check the price of a new product just because it rings up.

    Haskell's figured out their mistake and have corrected the price.

    Found some Star of the North today - but didn't pull the trigger yet, thinking of heading back after work to grab. Pretty good stuff huh? Have a FdN sitting in the fridge at home, been waiting to crack open.

    AnalogErik Savant (385) Minnesota Jul 23, 2013

    I really enjoyed it, so much so that I have one in the cellar and one in the fridge still!
