    Red Wedding Ale!

    Even better, a beer that allows you to take one drink that's amazing, but before the next one the beer falls flat.

    ISO: Beer and glass, seriously

    I'm from California and they don't carry the game of thrones "iron throne" here yet. I'm looking to buy 2 bottles. Can anyone help? Would also love to get 2 glasses if possible.. Looking to pay retail plus a little extra for shipping fees and gas money!

    I can't wait to try this. I've been looking forward to it every since I saw they were going to release it. The beer/wine place I go to in Arlington is supposed to have it, but I won't be there until this weekend. The guy we talk to who orders their beer said they'll have it soon. (Then again he said the same about getting in more La Terrible...which made me sad when they didn't.)

    Crossing my fingers here. Hoping to pick up a bottle or two for myself. Also would be interested in getting the special glass.

    It is hitting national distribution, so don't go trading like crazy for it. I will say I went to the brewery and bought 5 bottles of it as soon as they opened on Saturday, and they had TONS of it. It is also relatively inexpensive as far as Ommegang limited releases go. The brewery price is $7.99 and the glass is also $8. So if people really can't find it, I live about 20 minutes from the brewery and can get it and the glasses, send me a message if you need it right away and I will try and help you out. Ommegang has stated that it should be in all markets by April 1st though.

    Has anyone tried this yet? Is it more than just a gimmick? I trust Ommegang to make good beer, so I sure hope so.

    Anyone seen this in the Hamilton, NY area? I know I'm less than 50 miles from the brewery but I haven't had the time to check the local purveyors.

    I caught Bon Iver at Ommegang's brewery grounds last year and I'm a fan of their brews although I've only had the Witte.

    And another name... "Sansa Saison"

    I tried it here last week. It tastes like somebody sprayed me in the mouth with perfume. Its interesting at first and then it becomes undrinkable. Glad I didnt pay for it. Drainpour for sure.

    When you play the game of brews, you drink or you drain pour.

    Picked up a bottle at Whole Foods this morning. Hoping I can get one of those glasses to drink it out of.

    Thought it was alright, nothing too great though. Definitely not getting again at the price point.

    Wasn't bad, but wasn't very good either. Mainly got it just for the bottle.

    Picked on up today at Wegmans, paid $8.50. Comparable to many other corked n caged bottles. Worth it for the label alone (instead of searching for the best bottled on date, like i sometimes do on IPA's, I picked up and put down about 5 bottles looking for the cleanest label, doh!).

    Great Review! I haven't cracked mine open yet, but I am even more excited now that I was when I purchased the bottle. I firmly agree that when it comes to many great beers, often belgians, less is more. Looking forward to this one.

    We found it here in Brighton, MA at Walsh Liquors. The owner had just unpacked it moments ago. And by a happy mishap, we previously bought some other Ommegang beer, thinking we weren't going to be able to find it anywhere.
