    Was wondering for all those people who have had Handjee, to rank from a list of the 2 most recent batches the order of best batch down, and why each batch was better than the next one.

    Trying to trade for one, but want some feedback on which one is better to chase.

    Hard to say, you better bring a couple bottles to my house so I can try them.

    I got a Handjee from Sally Johnson in the park near the river in 17, 10/10 would recommend.

    Are you trying to find the 6 other people that have had both?

    Since it's a 3F beer, you might want to ask in the Great Lakes forum.

    Also @pmccallum86, I was thinking the same thing.

    Was it a marshmallow Handjee?

    Were you the guy I made eye contact with during the Handjee?

    I’ve had both and would say there is no reason not to drink it fresh so get the 18. I enjoyed 18 more than I remember enjoying 17 and the only variable in my case (besides of course the obvious batch variation) was I drank 18 at Dark Lord Day and had 17 six months after bottling.

    Just fyi:

    FFF = 3 Floyds
    3F = 3 Fonteinen/ Drie Fonteinen
