    Aprihop for me. (Though I do like Festina Peche as well) It's the only beer I ever buy a case of even though I know it's not THAT amazing. Though I would buy a case of KBS or BCBS if I could afford it =/

    I also look forward too:

    Parabola
    Nugget Nectar
    21st Amendment Hop Crisis
    Weyerbacher Insanity

    Not a lot of big time seasonals released up in my hood or released in such small quantities I am unlikely to get it, therefore I do not get too excited about seeing them released.

    Founders Imperial Stout is definitely one that comes to mind.
    I'm not a huge fan of pumpkin beers (do enjoy the occasional one), but they most excite me. Fall's my favorite season and I love the transition from Summer to Autumn. Their releases just always bring a little kid sense of joy to me just for that reason. On that note, I do love me some Elysian Dark O' the Moon Pumpkin Stout.

    The ones I look forward to AND purchase every year...

    Nugget Nectar (one of my all-time favorites)
    SN celebration (every year my reaction is the same--"Wow, this beer is terrific...and I only paid how much for it?)
