COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When reading the name “Stone Cali-Belgique IPA”, “Cali” hints that it is a California style IPA, and this brew has an undeniable Belgian influence, indicated by the word “Belgique” (which is how Belgium’s French-speaking population says the word “Belgian”; the Dutch speaking Belgians say “Belgie”). We carefully selected a Belgian yeast strain that illuminates a fascinating new aspect of the beer that is otherwise quite simply Stone IPA.

The result is both completely new and different, while still being recognizable as a Stone Brew – and Stone IPA in particular. Think of it as an otherwise identical twin to Stone IPA that was raised in a Belgian culture. Literally.

Another amazing creation from stone! This has just the right amount of IPA to sweetness offered by the Belgian yeast strands. This is perfect for my palette, sweet on the front and a nice bitter finish that doesnít overpower the taste buds. =] Thank you WOB.

So many ratings yet this is the first time Iíve seen it. Tap. Sweet perfume aroma. Pale yellow. Puffy head. Strong bitter medicine. Hardly any co2. Lingering finish. Not impressed. Needs a little civility.

Interesting brew, flavors work well. Pours light gold with a thick, dense head (like my brother). The aroma has the banana and clove thing but then a whiff of pine. Pretty much the same n the glass - starts off down the Belgian road then swings you back into piney grapefruit. Long finish. Yum.

Mmm ... citrusy, fruity bitterness in the aroma and first bite then comes the yeast and thatís replaces by a long sweet bitter after-taste. Medium bodied with plenty of foamy head.

badhack (400) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 19, 2015
A good balance between belgian yeast and IPA hops. Not a strong yeast, but a fruity flavor imparted on the tongue with a hoppy finish. Not too bitter.

Svesse (6884) - Hšsselby, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2015
(Draught at BrewDog Stockholm, 11 June 2015) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, spicy nose with notes of dried apricots, citrus, grass and spicy yeast. Malty, fruity taste with dried apricots, citrus, hay, spicy yeast, resin and a generous spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty and interesting, with a spicy touch of Belgian yeast. Nice one.

Pours clear amber with low white head. Aroma of citrus, wheat, cilantro, light honey. Taste is initial light fruit sweet followed by yeast and wheat sweet, then a long and lingering bitter finish. Body is light and smooth with average carbonation.
