Beer shouldn’t be released until it is ready to drink. When it’s ready, sell it. If it isn’t, don’t. What the hell are we doing here?

Nothing. I didn’t know that it was bottled in 2010, I was only reading last ratings and I thought it was bottled at the moment or shortwhile before and it wasn’t ready to drink. That’s all.

take a picture of your lambic, sell the bottle on ebay, and look at the pictures. thats a smarter approach.


Send me that case of Framboos first =)

Believe me when I say it is ready to drink. Believe me when I say hype says it should be aged for years and believe me when I say don’t believe hype.

Of course...I don’t have any and am actually trying to find a bottle after a pre-trade seems to have fallen through.

people are idiots. one person makes a mistake and says "FT: Framboos (2010)" and then all the ignorance follows.

If I had one, I’d drink it right now. For breakfast.

It’s not ready yet, you’ll wind up eating a dude’s face off.

Don’t do it.

I would drink a sip, then pour the rest out on the curb, to honor my fallen homies.
