    Hopefully the Olsen twins aren't still stalking around the neighborhood, and steal my targets box, it's out for delivery.

    So a package has arrived at my house, but I am out of town for the weekend. I'll open it up and post pics tomorrow. Torture having to wait a whole weekend.

    Juliet 2012
    JK Boxers Revenge
    JK Das Uberkind
    JK RU-55
    Deschutes The Dissident 2010
    Loon 2011

    love the Boxers Revenge and hadn't had the Das Uberkind, RU-55 or the Dissident.
    perfect timing as I had just traded out my last Juliet and was in the need for some Loon dregs for a saison I'm going to sour!

    Sorry I've taken so long to post my haul. I came down with a stomach bug the day a box DESTROYED my porch.

    Weyerbacher Reserva
    The Lost Abbey Red Poppy
    Russian River Supplication
    Rodenbach Grand Cru
    The Bruery Sour in the Rye
    The Bruery Tart of Darkness
    The Bruery Oude Tart
    Dogfish Head Signature Glass
    Goose Island Nonic Pint Glass

    Seriously, this is the best box in my short career here on the forums of Beer Advocate. bbpro47 hit some major wants here. These will be my first taste of The Bruery and The Lost Abbey and Weyerbacher and I am so looking forward to them. I'm wondering how he read my mind and included the glasses because I am fast becoming a hoarder of glassware. DFH Signature glass was a huge want of mine. Picture will be coming shortly when I get back to my computer.

    Cheers to you bbpro47!!!

    Just was got home this morning and was able to take a peak inside the box.

    Jolly Pumpkin Sobrehumano Palena'ole
    Goose Island Matilda
    Drie Fontienen- Oude Geuze

    Crooked Stave W.W.B.Y

    Jester King Funk Metal
    Sierra Nevada/R.R Brux

    Really stoked to try some new sour beers. The J.P., Matilda, W.W.B.Y and Funk Metal are all going to be new to me. The Oude Geuze is one of my all time favorites as well so I'm always happy with another of those.

    Big thanks to Snowrs for a great box!

    I'll get up pics tonight as I've got to run to work now.

    Good because that was your only sour want I could hit, and I very we'll could have thrown in another sister instead.
