I had Two Hearted yesterday.  Different from what I remember but still great.

But not on draft ;)

Right.  These were bottles.  I was at Hopleaf and they had it on draft but I did not get any.

I'm going today and tomorrow. :mellow:
Will skip on Sat. for other drafts, Cantillon and Girardin, etc. Gotta save some real estate downstairs and cash.

Went to the Flanders Red & Oud Bruin seminar at Hopleaf yesterday, it went well. Much more discussion of the beers being tasted, and less general misinformation than the lambic seminar. The main theory was that these styles are endangered, they aren't popular or even well-known in Belgium, and that the demand from the US market and abroad is barely keeping them afloat.

We tasted Bockor Oud Bruin, Rodenbach Alexander, Jacobins Rouge, Verhaghe Vichtenaar, Petrus Aged Pale, La Folie 2015, and Blue Island Gothic Funk.

Had the Girardin Oud Lambiek (correct beer this time) and I think the Lindemans was better the night before. Girardin had a little butterscotch diacetyl going on.

Kriek de Jacobins and Cuvee Freddy - Sofie edition were both very good.
