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.
I had a bottle of Westy 12 brought back from Belgium a couple years ago, and have been sitting on it ever since. Decided earlier this season that I'm going to crack it when Pioli is fired...
