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

rand (1470) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 11, 2015
Golden beer with a tenacious white head, allegro crackling. Greedy nose, very fruity, orange, apricot, yeast, spices, citrus hop. The mouth is tingly, fruiy of yeast with an excellent complementary bitterness which, for once, does not quite get the upper hand. Notes of lemon, pineapple, coriander. Dry asnd quenching, a bit sour in finale.

Aroma is malts, pepper, spice and hops. Taste is also spicy with some caramel malts and hints of pines and fruits. Aftertaste is hoppy with hints of herbs. Nice and refreshing one.

Quite nicely balanced hybrid. The one I drank was slightly expired but still a very good taste

Beer5000 (5705) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2015
On tap @ Kick. Unclear golden body with a nice, big, lacing white head. Aroma gives a farmhouse feeling with spicy Belgium yeast and mature fruit. Flavor is fruity, mostly ripe fruit, hint of acidic berries and low bitterness. Medium body and moderate in aftertaste. Decent but the ripe fruit flavor becomes to monotone for me. Suspect this beer might be a bit old, have some previous notes from an earlier bottle version that I must compare with some day and eventually re-rate.

Butelka trochę po dacie bo do 8 sierpnia ale trzyma formę. W aromacie owoce zmiksowane z pięknym aromatem drożdży. Smak również hybrydowy, jednak wyszedł świetnie. Pomimo późnego wypicia koolaboracja w postaci Magic Stone Dog wyszła świetnie.
