I've had Westy 12 and it's a great beer, but not worth $85+ per gift pack (6 pack of beers with 2 cheap goblets). The reason for the hype is that this release is the first time it's officially been sold in the U.S.
Just picked one of these up over lunch when I went to grab my Rye-On-Rye. Anxious to try it this weekend.
