4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2010 Draft sample at Finneganís of Plainfield. My 100th California beer! More of an American hop smell than the 07.07.07. Even clearer gold color. I taste a lot of catty Amarillo type hops, which I didnít know where there until now reading the deScription. Slick but chewy Belgian pils malts, with a backing of some citrus and plum, and little yeast bite compared to the 07.07.07. Did I mention itís yummy, and a notch above the older vertical? Yes, it is!

Draft @ Beer Temple. Pours a clear golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is very malty, some aromas of vinous characters, a decent, light fruity backbone. Flavor is rather sweet, yeasty and fruity. Not really complex as I would like to expect, but certainly enjoyable. Some white fruits, light bready and long soft sweet aftertaste. Quite nice.

Pours a beautiful gold, with white head. Aroma of hops and sugars. Taste is hoppy with a mix of complex sugars. A Belgian IPA...very interesting. Thumbs up.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: pours with a medium off white head, the beer is a very clear average golden color
Aroma: lemon, spice, banana, sweet bread, very strong aromas
Taste: lemon, that belgium golden sweetness is dominant, has a spicy hop kick and a strong alcohol warmth on the finish
Palate: alcohol and bitter aftertaste, heavy mouthfeel, average carbonation
Overall: stone has a reputation for very over the top beers and this is no exception, lots of Belgium yeast and sweetness with an assertive hop kick in the background, drink this one slow

On tap @ Chuckís 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.
