3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very pale with a golden tint, soft white foam. A confusing array of mild but distinct aromas, itís a border war between Belgium and Germany with Bannanas fighting oranges a peaches for supremacy. Medium bodied, it sarts soft and marshmallow-y then a hint of orange creeps in, followed by a subtle cherry pie flavor then some lime. Saisontripelweizen of the highest order!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured cloudy and golden, very small head. Hoppy and fruity nose. Inital pull is smooth and creamy with fruity notes taking up the front. A little hoppy and some light alcohol tones. All in all, very nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured dusty yellow with a quickly diminishing white head. Aroma is big and yeasty. Alcohol, pepper, and other spices. Flavor is yeasty, tangy and has somewhat of a liquid soap taste. Also citrus and orange. Not a real hoppy brew more of a peppery bite from the alcohol. Rather syrupy and thick mouthfeel. Seems a bit rough, but it will be interesting to see how it matures.

Golden color. It didnít have a big head but it had lots of hop flavor! It was a bit green at that point so I would like to try it again in 6 months to a year. Itís a good beer as I tasted it but I am sure it will improve with aging.

Clear golden pour, smallish head, but nice lacing. Grassy, citrus aroma. I think Iím tasting the lime in there, and itís not something Iím really liking. Also, Iím not a big fan of the yeast. Itíll be interesting to see how it mellows...

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Golden color, with decent head and carbonation. Aroma is Belgiany and fresh. Quite a unique aroma and flavor, possibly due to the lime leaves but hard to pin down. One of the best beers Iíve ever had, and considering itís so young and should age nicely, this could develop into a truly amazing beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 0z. Apparently from the description I wasnít supposed to drink this beer until 12 / 12 / 12. But I didnít read that unitl I had opened it and was half way into drinking it. Beautiful color - dull orange / copper - no head though, I even tried to produce a head and not much came around. Sweet malty flavor, I picked up on apricot, perhaps I am sensitve to that aroma because it seems like I pick it out fairly often. A hint of wood, a bit spicey maybe smokey. Delicious beer with a kind of slick, almost oily, medium body. I would give it my recommendation but Iím not sure its even available any longer. A solid Belgian.

Crystal clear light golden color with a medium head of tiny bubbles. Aroma of a Hefeweizen. Hints of banana & clove and leaves you with a clean palate.

This is a pretty darn good beer, but not one of stones better beers in my opinion. furthermore Iím not really a fan of this style. But it was pretty clean and refreshing and the citrusness wasnít too overpowering. Stick to the real beers Stone boys.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly cloudy golden/amber color with a thin white head. Very different from the 03, and 05. Bannana, apricot and alcohol esters combined with a pungent bitter malt middle. Not a hop bitterness, something else. This one needs another year in the cellar.
