    Hey all,

    Was wondering if this bottle is rare and how much it would be worth in a trade. Any information about this bottle would be much appreciated.

    Thanks for all the help.

    It sounds like you're more interested in this beer as a commodity rather than a beer to drink. If you saw it somewhere you should just buy it and drink it. I for one don't appreciate people buying things on speculation of trade value.

    If someone's offering it to you in trade then my answer would be to honestly tell them you know nothing about this beer.

    Turd it seems like you're jumping to a conclusion that may or may not be correct. If it were offered in trade, maybe the OP wants a second opinion. Sometimes you can't trust the trader because they have personal attachment.

    Brother I own it!! Don't know anything about it. Asking questions. If you have any information about this beer then I would like to know. I personally would like to trade it since I don't like Cantillon.

    Well then I apologize for missing the mark!

    I'd guess it has slightly higher trade value than younger Lou Pepe Gueuze. Maybe 0.9 KH? Oh hell, maybe lower than that, but somewhere in that neighborhood I guess.

    My first question is it the gueuze, kriek or framboise? Second is what do you want for it? :). I happen to love any and all cantillon!

    Never mind question 1 was answered, still looking for an answer to question 2.

    I really enjoyed the 2000 LPG the last time I had one, but that was about two years ago. I had a 1999 LPG fairly recently and it was really falling off--next to the 1994 Classic Gueuze it felt weak muted and slightly oxidized. Could be more batch variation than age though.
    Interestingly, I believe that 2000 was the last year the Lou Pep series let the base lambic age for three years in barrels before bottling. Now they use two year old lambic.

    LP Gueuze thats 13 years old should pull some pretty nice stuff. Just throw it up ISO FT and see what you get.

    Also because noone has answered it yet: Whalez Bro!

    No clue how the LP gueuze became so desirable. Must be because of limited availability. The classic is much better. I dont even like the LP gueuze. It's not even gueuze!
