    I've only had it fresh so I'm not sure.

    I'm shocked nobody said anything yet about the pricing.

    "Going forward, “specialty” releases will be sold in four-packs for $11.99 suggested retail price. In 2013, the specialty list includes Imperial Stout, Curmudgeon Old Ale, KBS, Double Trouble, Devil Dancer, Rübæus, Red’s Rye PA, Harvest Ale and Backwoods Bastard".

    $11.99 for KBS 4 packs? Bourbon County what? Never heard of it. ;)

    glad to hear raspberries are finally affordable to make the Rubaeus, however, I'm still waiting to see the Paisley Park Pomegranate again!

    If I'm reading that correctly that makes KBS, Backwoods, and Curmudgeon absolute steals.

    I saw that, but since it's only a suggest retail price, I don't expect it to materialize for me the consumer at the end of the third tier.

    Considering how awesome Blushing Monk is right meow, I'd love to try some aged Rubaeus.

    I accidentally bought a year old 4pk of Cerise (2011) when the 2012 came out and did a side by side. The red color had faded to golden, the fruit forward sweetness had faded and it had become more tart (like a sour cherry pie). Yes...it ages well. All of my friends save one preferred the year old bottle (the other prefers lindemans to cantillon).

    Yeah KBS is probably not going to sell at the suggested retail price..

    Only at stores that don't know any better. Most places will hike it up, and people will pay it....including me :/

    Ain't that the truth. If I'm lucky enough to get my hands on a few bottles at release, I'll have to pay the piper. And I suppose I'll do it happily for at least a 4-pack.

    Of course, that would probably be the exception. For those of us who live a bit further away, it's probably going to be a war.

    even still I cannot believe that founders would only charge 12 bucks a 4pack on release day, that is a freaking steal!

    I have to believe that was a misstatement at $12 for KBS unless they are selling non-profit. I feel like cost on that beer is exponentially higher than Curmudge or BWB.
