    Was the Mirror Mirror infected? I'm holding out hope that mine will be delicious.

    Yes, unfortunately it was. We thought someone tricked us in bringing a sour. It actually kind of smelled nice, but it was pretty undrinkable.

    My pics will be up sometime after tomorrow, but this is the lineup for my bachelor party tomorrow:

    Petrus Aged Pale
    '11 Lolita
    '10 Ola Dubh 12 year
    Cuvee Rene
    Old Rasputin XIV
    Wookey Jack
    '12 Kentucky Monk
    Angry Goat
    Homebrew Amarillo/Simcoe/Centennial IPA
    '10 Brooklyn Monster
    Palate Wrecker

    And a few more unannounced beers from people showing up. If I end up feeling like opening it for giggles, I have an 04/04/04. Might save it for another time, depends on what the others bring and how I'm feeling after drinking all that stuff. :p

    There were 11 of us. The whole thing took about 12 hours. The far and away highlight was Loerik. After that, Blauw and 3F Oude Geuze Vintage '03 were my favorites. Other ones way up there were Jean Chris Nomad, Veritas 005, '99 Oude Geuze, and Millennium.

    The surprise of the night went to Veritas 008, which smelled like that powdered vomit remover tasted like vitamins the first time I had it near its release. Now, it's actually quite good, at least IMO.

    I didn't get the growler filled. There was WAYYYYY too much beer. Only 5 people showed up, but it was still a good time. Simtra and Lolita were the highlights to me. Simtra is an AMAZING IPA/DIPA/TIPA whatever you want to call it. It's fantastic.

    Had some geuze steamed mussels among other great food for the tasting too.
    Note that vegetable root chips & smoked salmon are excellent to pair with lambic as well!

    The Five Squared was my favorite of the night, wish it wasn't a crazy expensive one time brew.

    The wax on the De Struise bottles is thick and hard, but heating it with a lighter did the trick:

    Not a recent tasting, but I took this shot a couple years ago and it's always been one of my favorites:
