3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured an orangy pale color into a Stone tulip glass with 2 fingers of frothy, white head. Hints of yeast sediment are seen pleasantly floating around, which is to be expected, as this beer is meant to age until 2012. Aroma of light bread, banana and citrusy lime with a hint of alcohol at the finish. Flavor is lightly acidic and sweet, quickly turning pleasantly bitter and crisp and dry at the end. Very, very refreshing! This tastes like a good young Belgian Trippel, yet is very complex, a few months/years should allow the flavors to meld into something very special. I have a case in the old cellar to sample randomly over the next few years, if I can keep my hands off of it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light gold with a fine head that continues throughout experience. Not a very strong aroma, but has a hint of bubblebum or bananas. Taste is malty but no hint to the lime. Hop bitterness is subdued but in balance. Should develop very well over time. A little too young. Stone has done well in preparing for the future taste profile.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp golden ale with banana / clove yeast flavor and aroma typical of many Belgian ales. First sip finds the beer very bitter for the style, although the bitterness fades after a while. I don't taste any lime, maybe some age will mellow the hops and allow other flavors through.

A little boozy. Lacks any unique character to get excited about. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
