    Make that 'Nouveau'. My mistake!

    Haven't seen this on the forums at all. Picked up 2 bottles this afternoon. It's a sour red ale in the Flanders red tradition. Any body tried it yet?

    Where'd you pick it up? I had it at the pub a few weekends ago, but haven't seen any for sale in stores. It's pretty good, similar to the vintage Rodenbachs. AFAIK, there were only 500 bottles produced.

    I haven't seen it yet in Bmore. It's been a 2 year process, I am sure it's delicious.

    Matt, glad you posted this (I've been wondering the same thing - it's not even listed on here) - haven't had it yet but plan on picking some up.

    This beer spent 2 years in barrels, according to a tweet from their brewer. (edit: truckerock above me already mentioned this)

    That's a great price too - I know a few places in NoVA got it but were charging $25 a bottle.

    Let us know what you think when you open it.

    Just called and had my local store hold two bottles for me. I am glad they got some, because they are always at least $2 cheaper on everything compared to the stores I shop at in Annapolis.

    That's insane that places in NoVa jacked it up to $25 per bottle. I hate that some stores see "sour beer" on the label and automatically increase the price.

    If southern DE gets shut out on this I'm going to be a little angry.

    Did they bottle this in their 750ml bottles? Tough to tell by the pictures on untappd.

    Yes, it's in the same style bottle as the Migration series.

    Southern DE? How about us up north? I have yet to see a single large format form EVO up this way. Have to head to the beach in hopes of ever finding one in state.

    Well given that they started here, I would hope to see them around in Sussex County at the very least. But I haven't seen one since Menagerie #8. It seems that DE in general isn't high on their list of priorities since they moved.

    Grabbed two at $15.50 each. Not the cheapest beer obviously, but not bad considering it spent two years in barrels.

    A beer guy for a store I found today told me the cases are going for $189 (for 12 bottles) which comes out to $16. Not sure how some of these places are selling them for less.

    How far are you from State Line in "Elkton"? I've seen Menagerie there before, don't know about this one.

    It wasn't there on Saturday. Unless they were keeping it in the back. I didn't ask.

    Got one at Pinnocchio's yesterday. More expensive than what others have been paying ($23) but that's par for the course here in Philly. Looked like they had 4 or 5 more in the fridge.

    Am i the only one that didn't like this beer? Opened one at Pinocchios yesterday. Couldn't even finish it. it had a weird butterscotch flavor and mouthfeel (diacetyl?) and was just harsh.

    cryme Initiate (147) Jun 29, 2011 Delaware

    I'm wondering if you had an off bottle, because I certainly didn't get that at all.
     
  37. ThoreauLikeAGirl

    ThoreauLikeAGirl Initiate (0) Mar 11, 2011 Pennsylvania

    nope. because i let dan drink some of mine (he had it the night before) and he said it tasted the same as his bottle. and he loved it.

    Wish I could have taken it off your hands. I still can't find any in the land that birthed Evo.
