COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
bottle & keg, special
A hoppy menage a trois of epic proportions, Magic Stone Dog is a rustic farmhouse pale ale mash up. Brewed in collaboration with Greg Koch (Stone) and Rich and Stu (Magic Rock) just before our AGM, Magic Stone Dog has the best qualities of a saison and a pale ale, combined.
The nose has a citrus punch straight from the US West Coast, boasting zest, pineapple and orange notes, offset against a big spicy clove warmth courtesy of the saison yeast.
This continues into the flavour, where the best of both worlds combine - orange, spice, a touch of lemony tartness - and sit alongside a thirst- quenching dryness and refreshing effervescence. This bright, zesty, subtly tart, Belgian-inspired brew is the perfect beer to enjoy during the Indian summer we all know is definitely coming. Definitely. For sure.
Malts: Extra Pale Amber Wheat Rye Oats
Hops: Amarillo Simcoe
Twist: Mash up style with both saison and pale ale character

gEUS (1375) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2015
bottle at home. Pours clear golden with a steady white head and nice fine carbonation. Grassy and zesty aromas, and some pils alike malt characteristics. Medium body with a punchy almost sour-like beginning with the bitterness kicking in as from the mid and endng up quite dry. A nice thrist quencher. The taste is citrussy and malty again. Nice easy going ale.

Fashawn (353) - Montesarchio, ITALY - APR 18, 2015
Buona birra, ibrido tra una saison ed una pale alè all’americana. Frutta, pane e erba al naso,in bocca è lo stesso con la croccantezza della birra ed un ritorno di spezie ed ebra. Onesta e beverina

IPAgutten79 (693) - Skui, NORWAY - APR 14, 2015
Lys oransje med medium skum. Helt klar med mye bobler. Aroma av sitrus, gjær og noe krydder. Smaken er sitrus, halm/gress, gjær og krydder. Mildt bitter og mildt sur i ettersmaken. Nokså tørr. Tynn/medium konsistens

Holmen1 (3226) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2015
Fra fat på Kooperativen sammen med Einar mars-15: gylden med filmskum. Dufter godt av sitron, appelsin, nellik, peppermix og de typiske stalltonene fra belgisk gjær. Lett besk i smaken sammen med (over)modne blidappelsiner. Helhetsinntrykket virker litt ufokusert, men så beskrives den jo som en hybrid.
