    Have you ever seen Deep Blue Sea? I think the Bruery has created some sort of out-of-control monster lacto-shark.

    I don't know if ANYONE on this thread has ACTUALLY TASTED one, but I did tonight, and it was a mighty fine drop.

    Hi BAers
    What is everyone paying for the rue d Floyd had a guy I know pick me up at a bottle, straight from fff and he charged me 25 for it and threw in a sixer of alpha king which I assumed was an extra because of the mass amounts of brew I GIVE him. Was I over charged?

    The FFF release of Rue D'Floyd I believe was $30. The Bruery version was $20.

    Correct, I paid $30 for a bottle directly from FFF.

    So you definitely got a deal there.

    I had the Bruery version at a share and it was damn good. To me, the coffee was the flavor which tied it all together. I traded for a FFF version but have not received yet. It will interesting to compare as I didn't know the FFF version doesn't have coffee added.

    The Rue D'Floyd is a great beer. I found the Floyd D'Rue interesting, but did not buy bottles. But I made a point od buying bottleSSSS of the former.:slight_smile:

    Damn, thank you! I swear I taste lacto in almost everything I've had from Duck Rabbit (not that I have their stuff all that much. I've mentioned it to most of my drinking buddies and none of them ever got the taste. I thought I was going crazy! It isn't all that strong, but its a pretty recognizable taste even at a fairly low level.

    Maybe I'm just a glutton for punishment, but I just bought some FdR from the Bruery website as a PS member.

    All the descriptions say I should like it. I'll drink one, and age another. :slight_smile:

    I like rolling the dice.

    Has anyone risked keeping the Bruery's version of either beer out of the fridge for, say a month, before opening it, to see if the infection actually progresses?

    Just traded for the FFF version. It has no back label, I find that strange, no government warning or anything. Are all the bottles like this?

    That is exactly how mine was. I thought the same thing.

    Most of their special barrel release stuff just has some silkscreening and paintpen on it, no?

    I was wondering that too. I guess after July or so we may know if it'll be safe to put in the cellar, but then again who knows what those bugs may do.

    Getting one of each in a trade along with a white chocolate...Praying for no infection.

    Anyone know how this is tasting as of now? Any off flavors/smells develop because of the lacto?

    I bought mine in early July from a bottle shop that was storing it at room temp. Drank it two weeks ago and it was great. I was very concerned before hand, though

    I had RdF a few weeks ago and it was just as good as when it was first released (stored at ~40 F).

    Unfortunately, FdR is still just as bad as it was.

    A redditor pointed out that the 3F bottled versions were fine, just the Bruery's experienced infection. Out of curiosity, did both breweries bottle? I thought they just did it all at the Bruery.

    I had the RdF recently and it was unbelievably good still. One of the best stouts I've ever had and I've had a lot of them.

    I've had many bottles of FdR sitting in my cellar since release... never refrigerated.

    Not a single one tasted remotely tart or infected in any way. The opinions on this beer are mixed (I happen to like it a lot), but the infection issue is not a problem.

    Pretty crazy that the 3 Floyds version of Floyd D'Rue just sold out today, after being available for over two months...

    One of the days I was at the FFF Brewpub, after Floyd d'Rue had already been out for a month, I asked about the quantity of Fd'R vs Rd'F. They told me that the yield for Rd'F was about 500-600 bottles, whereas the yield for Fd'R was around 6000 bottles. They wouldn't say why there was such a vast difference in yield, but this is part of the reason that Fd'R lasted for what seems like forever. That, and it wasn't that great :grinning:
