3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle picked up at SL. Pours a yellow color, with a big frosy white head. Tart aroma, with some bready maltiness. Beer temperture was on the warmer side 55 degrees. Taste is intially tart, then a sweet candy sugar comes through on the tounge. Little to sweet for my taste, but not bad at all. Body is on the lighter side. Overall: I expect hoppy beers from stone and the rest of the CA brewers... so even though this isnt bad just a little let down. Wouldnt buy one again.

Interesting character... one of my problems with these types of limited edition beers is that you really need to drink quite a bit of the beer to get your head totally around it... especially these complicated ones. And the limited edition makes that hard and expensive. So, the verdict is... good, but I want more.

Clear golden colour. White short head. Nose is pretty low key. A bit yeast, some citrus and fruits like apple and pear, white wine. Taste is quite special and hard to grasp. I think its all that chamomile. Its like a rollercoaster in your mouth. Theres also citrusy flavours and a hint of something sweet that quickly goes away into a bitter acidic battery acid kind of thing. Its quite good but the tastes are just totally incapable of settling in any kind of line for me. I guess you people who bought more than one bottle to store will see what some time will do for this.

Very odd beet. Perhaps I was expecting something different but this was extremely sweet but tasted artificial. Almost like red bull.

Smells like dish water. Starts light and moves into a smooth amber finishing with faint grapes and banana esters. Solid but could be more momentous

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pours clear amber orange color with off white head. Aroma is belgian yeast, white pepper, and herbal spice. Lively carbonation on the mouthfeel. Flavor is more belgian tripel, spicy, peppery, and finishes dry. I don’t get any wine notes here at all. Tastes more like a belgian tripel than anything. Just average.

Bottle. Orange pour with very little head. Flavor is is semi-sweet juice, yeasty, some belgian malt, and wine essences. Aroma is grapey and yeasty; pretty strange to me. Flavors seem fabricated.
