    De Cam is just a complete unknown name for anyone who isn't already knee deep into lambics. I also don't think many people have tried them, so they don't know what they're missing. :)

    There is less exposure over here to De Cam than most other lambics, so that's why I dont think there is much demand. The one time I remember Oude Lambiek hitting the shelve, it was like $35 for a 750 and stayed on the shelves for weeks.

    Does De Cam geuze get imported to US?

    You were stirring the pot on the Sebago Barleywine thread this week too. Talk about 2 beers you're helping go from 0 to Whale in no time flat...

    I don't think anybody is currently importing De Cam beers. One must rely on shipping from Belgium, but even then many of the usual websites don't have some of the fruit lambics they make.

    I've purchased De Cam Oude Lambeik in the states, but not sure who imported the beer. I can check later on to see if there is anything on the bottles.

    I like De Cam, but every time I've tried it I've found it has a sort of odd mineral water taste to it. Like the water they use to make it is really hard or something...? Anybody else notice this?

    Yes, I've noticed it especially in the straight unblended lambic.

    I have only been on BA for a month. The second trade I lined up was for a Fou Foune and a Cuvee de Champions. It is not hard to do if you are in the right spot to grab good beer. I think it is for a Alesmith BA Wee Heavy and a Lost Abbey Framboise de Amarosa and '12 Cuvee de Tomme. Only one that is real hard to get is The Wee Heavy. It can easily be done if you have the right ammo for the trade. Keep looking!

    After reading this thread and searching the internet I have not been able to find out where 504NE stands. What does this trade for these days? Appreciate any info

    just guessing, but I think it's in the next tier harder than fou foune

    only made twice, brewery only release. Never traded for it but somewhere between Fou and Blabaer?

    I think it's safe to put it above Fou and below Blabaer like the others have stated. I've wanted another bottle since I drank the one I got from the brewery. Thought it was fantastic.
