3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours clear pale golden with thin white head. Aroma is rich fruity dry Belgian yeast, and clean sweet caramel malt. Taste is similar - dry with potent but pleasant yeasty notes that overshadow the malt. Some nice crisp hops for balance, but sticks to the standard Belgian profile overall. Cool to see Stone revisiting old recipes like this.

Tap. Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels. Clear gold. Film of white. Lots going on here. Heavy, sweet orange and tangerine hop. Clove. Star anise. Solvent. Cough medicine. Taste is chewy sweet. Oily, and fruity bitter. Palate is smooth. Medium to full body. Soft carbonation. Finishes all of that. Sweet, spicy, medicinal cough syrup bitter! On first few sips I thought this hard word. It quickly grew on me, and liked it by the end.

From a bottle. Pours clear with minimal head, big Belgian flavours, it’s pretty epic as you’d expect.

Decent blend of the Belgian and the West Coast IPA styles but likely won’t repeat.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle. Hazed honey gold color. Medium-sized frothy white head. Slightly yeasty citrus fruit nose. Hint of coriander as well. Fruity malt upfront with earthy undertones. A bit of bread and lemon peel. By midtaste, lot’s of peppery spice and warming alcohol. Long bitter finish and aftertaste. A bit like Duvel but more citrus and spice.

In the glass it has a golden yellow color with a small head. The aroma has citrus with some wood and some pine. The taste has a good amount of citrus up front followed up with some grain, herbs and hops. Medium finish.

Had this sometime at the end of 2012, as part of a 03.03.03 - 12.12.12 tasting. I had meant to enter these a while ago while they were fresh and add a few extra details, but that didn’t happen. Review from notes. Anyway, here we go.
3.0 A: Mildly hazed light orange color. Not much of a head formed.
4.0 S: Smells like its not really that old. Still quite hoppy with pleasant floral and citrusy notes. Sugary with peppery spiciness. Pineapple, mango, and orange stick out.
4.0 T: Tastes as good as the nose. Super surprised at how hoppy this is. Again, lots of citrus and floral. Peppery spice. Quite nice.
4.0 M: Medium body. Good spritzy carbonation.
4.0 D: This one is actually good.
