What's the trade value on a bottle of 2011 Framboise for a Cure?

    I just came into owning a bottle, I'm mulling over drinking it or saving it/trading it.

    Is there something you want more? Name it and we'll tell you whether or not you could trade your FfaC for it or not. If you can't come up with something, just drink the beer.

    Maybe some Cantillon or BCBS Cherry Rye. Im not entiredly sure to be honest. Ive only had the 2012 FfaC, and I adored it, i can definitely wait until October to buy another one if i could land some amazing beer that would otherwise be impossible to land.

    Depending on the Cantillon, yes. I'm sure you could get a Cherry Rye for it too.

    I'd say anything less rare/hyped than Fou Foune on the Cantillon side should trade. I think you'd have to add for Fou Foune.

    $20 of other semi limited 1 year old beer. 2011 wasn't exactly difficult to get (lasted much longer than 2012) and other than Batch 1 the FfaC doesn't seem to trade for more than its purchase price.

    I would say exactly this.

    Or, if you bought it at City Beer, $25 of other semi-limited 1 year-old beer. ;)

    I forgot! 2011 was the year it was "distributed" - $25 of regional, semi-limited shelf beer. :)

    The price was lowered to $20 pretty quickly after it went on sale at City Beer. I had at least 5 bottles out of the cooler; all were $20.

    As part of a big trade I sent along a 2011 FFaC for a few bottles of '08 and '09 BCBS.

    The only threads I like better than those that start with "What's the trade value on a...." are threads that don't start with "What's the trade value on a...."


    FFaC is ridiculously good. I'd drink it, but if you want to trade it, trade it for something that is very old, and likely past its prime. You should at least learn a lesson from all of this.

    I know, I love FFaC, but I can get it as soon as it comes out every year, I live about 45 minutes from RR. I want to try some Cantillon, especially Fou'foune.

    Why don't you just post an ISO looking for Fou Foune then?
