    A little different than the old ones. Cool.

    Since I've never actually seen the old one, what are the differences?

    It looks like the printing is a little different as well. Slightly sharper and more detailed.

    if someone is ordering one or some, i'd like to get in on it to save on shipping. (of course i don't want to do the paper work...)

    I am considering putting an order together for the glasses. There is a pretty significant decrease in price when ordering multiples (1 = $41.25 including shipping; 10 = $12.80 per including shipping).

    I'd be fine with handling paperwork and redistribution, but would need shipping/packaging charges to be applied per orderer. Also, as with other group International orders I've participated in, this would be an "at your own risk" order. I will, of course, do everything within my power to ensure safe delivery, but accidents happen from across the pond and in the states. If a casualty happens, we'll need to figure out how to handle that, prior to ordering, so there are no hurt or hard feelings.

    I'll feel this out for interest (and run it past the wife) before opening up signups. I'm not exactly sure how many I'll limit this to, but I don't want to go overboard (I'm thinking maybe a total of 10).

    Any thoughts, comments, suggestions, questions?

    Having put together 3 international orders myself, and knowing what a complete pain in the ass they are, I feel that you have covered all of the most important points. Cheers to a generous BA!

    Question: Does this decrease the value of the original ballon?

    44 cl seems significantly larger than the balloon that I have. Anyone have any idea? I would like to join in a group order too.

    It does to me! I'd like to still have an old one, but the new one is cool enough that I'm not going to kill myself trying to track down the old one like I have been for the past months.

    That said, if anyone has an old one and wants to swap it for a new one, let me know. I have 2 on the way and should be here next week.

    I would be in for a glass.

    If your limit is 10, I think there were more than nine others at a single glass each ahead of me. Let me know if you decide to expand or if someone else decides to order.

    Sounds like there's enough interest to possibly do 20. How much more would that lower shipping charges?

    Sounds like I'm late to the party. If Cantillon shipment 2.0 happens count me in. Agree that the organizer should have their glass covered. If I do make another group, the organizer will be cost free (not headache free:))

    I'd be down for 1 if this is still available. I was messing around with the quantity and 16 to 38 glasses seems to be the sweet spot for shipping charges.

    Those went quick. It's as if all the beer geeks who are into glassware were alerted of their presence. Weird.

    See y'all at the 'Fou'Foune on Etre GO! GO! GO!' thread.
