    I know this one is retired, but is it still around or traded at all? Meaning, (I don't like these type of forums but here we go) what would it take to score one? Has anyone traded for an ISO:FT lately? If so, what did it take? I doubt I have the ammo, but I'd love to get one for a buddy of mine that loves sours...

    I think it was $25 a bottle and around 900-1,000 bottles if you add up between RS members & what was sold at CCB roughly.

    Pretty much this. They taste very much the same, with Marron a little better. Did a side by side a while back.

    I'm not actually certain that they aren't the same beer.

    Have to agree...MA was easily the best of the two and quite enjoyable... ISO:FT was a hot mess of a beer.

    hmmm... didn't realize that MA was so close in taste. I have had ISO:FT before, but it looks like I may be looking for a MA and not a ISO:FT...

    For what it's worth, if your gots are up to date, you easily have the ammo to trade for ISO:FT or Marron Acidifie. I have both and I'd trade either for some of the stuff on your gots.

    I still see MA and ISO:FT all the time for having such low bottle counts. They're popping up in trades and tastings all the time. Doesn't take that much to land them either.

    MA is one of my more favorite bruery beers and has actually been aging really well. we had it at a tasting a few weeks back and its still tasting pretty damn good.

    the only grip about MA is it was actually quite expensive (at the time, seems to be there norm now) and was roughly 20-22. i found some for $18 but i also saw it for $25

    I traded for a ISO:FT not too long ago, traded a Hunahpu for it. Also got a Marron Acidife recently too so I'm planning on doing them side by side at some point!
