    Got lucky on a case of RuinTen today. Haven't been able to find it anywhere in southeast PA, none of the lists I was put on panned out, and as a last ditch effort I just started calling distributors and lo and behold, one just got a case in today. It was the only case they got in. So I'm pretty hyped on this one.

    I miss the nip bottles. Those bottles are really cute.
    Also De Molen used to make incredible beer back then but that is besides the point. Very cool collection.

    Are they all green bottles? I remember there being transparent ones which used to look black with the liquid inside. Are there any beers that were released both in transparent and green bottles or was it always the one or the other? Is there a logic or was it just whatever was available to them?

    How great is this?
    My local store just got in 4 new breweries, Evil Twin, Crooked Stave, Westbrook, and Stillwater.
    [​IMG]
    Here's what you're looking at:
    • Evil Twin's Aun Mas Cafe Jesus, which not only means something about Jesus and more coffee, it also means that we're on the map next time Imperial Biscotti Break comes around ;)
    • Crooked Stave's Vieille (Old), Hop Savant, and Surette (Sour) - a saison, an APA, and a saison, respectively
    • Westbrook's Bearded Farmer "Thomas" saison and Mexican Cake Imperial stout
    • Stillwater's Cellar Door (makes me think of Donnie Darko) and Existent - both, again, saisons (!)
    Cheers!

    So what's the verdict? That's a good beginner Gueuze, but there's so much to discover! Get your hands on a Tilquin if you can, relatively easy to find and damn good. Enjoy the ride! You're wallet sure wont.

    Most of them are transparent even. Might be a bit strange, but the odds of these beers going skunky is slim to none :)

    From what Menno told me, they stopped doing them because the supplier started asking them to buy it in huge bulk (like by the palate), which they at the time simply couldn't afford anymore. Not a surprise, their profit margins must have been tiny if they made costly beers like these all the time.
