    This beer is a very longtime want for me. Interested to know what people have traded or received for this beer recently.

    It's a white whale. It'll likely take similar caliber beers.

    I know it's a whale, I'm looking to hear specific beers people have traded for it.

    Our tasting group recently traded for one. It was a south hampton black raspberry and a apple brandy black magick for one

    $90? They're practically giving it away as far as RR wales go. T20 could still be had last summer at Toronado, but for the cool price of $250.

    T20 isn't worth trying imo.

    T20 was sold for $100 to go at this year's anniversary party. And lasted a lot longer than Cable Car Kriek and regular, too.

    Also, T20 is so far over the hill it isn't worth trying. Deviation is on the decline but is still very, very good.

    I would've gone for it at $50 or something, but that beer is way too bad to be worth $100. And, more importantly, everyone knows it's bad so you can't even trade it for nice stuff any more.

    Yeah, the game was over once Dave Keene and Vinnie both talked at length about how T25 was designed to age well, unlike T20.
