    Anyone had it yet? Supposedly very limited but not willing to drop $30 on a bottle without 1 review.....

    It's very similar to Wild One, if you ever had that. Very good.

    Not yet, the shop nearby was asking $23 or $32 per bottle (can't remember). Either way, I've been thinking about it but haven't pulled the trigger yet.

    I haven't had wild one--hard to believe its $30 good though considering the GI sisters are still around for $10 and simple match states 3:1. is there anything game-changing about it to warrant the px?

    Probably not. Where can you still get the GI sisters for $10? That was a pricing error by the distributor on the first batch that went out, but everywhere I've been in the last few months has correctly priced the next shipment at $25 - $30/bottle.

    $20 at WF Brooklyn. IMO a great beer (close to Garrett's old legendary Wild One), but should probably be $15 or so.

    really want to try this beer, but they're still pushing their black ops anachronistic prices. sorry guys, you're not the only barrel aged stout/wild on the market, you don't get to charge $30.

    if you can give me world class brooklyn black chocolate for $9/4pk in fucking manhattan, don't try to charge me $30 for your experimental version of a beer that masters make better and sell across the country/world for cheaper. no no no no.

    I posted a thread else where, but in seaching found this thread.

    I got a bottle of it in GA, and I'm trying to find out if I should hold it for a while, or drink it now? They were limiting it to one bottle I believe, and had it in back as it was new. Paid $9.99 for it.

    $9.99? That's a steal. I'd resell it to someone for $15 (the going rate seems to be ~$20). I thought it was a real mess of a beer.

    the reviews that i've read seem to say the barrel/oak is very strong, and clashes with the bretty beer underneath. i believe them about what they're tasting, but personally they're description sounds like something i would like. i like my wild ales to be very oaky (see cascade for example).
     
  27. mikeburd1128

    mikeburd1128 Zealot (547) Oct 28, 2011 New Jersey

    Yeah. I just got this oaky/artificial vanilla flavor from start to finish. And it was quite a struggle for me to taste any kind of brett presence at all. And not even remotely sour. I was really pretty disappointed - especially at the price.
