This ninth edition of our Stone Vertical Epic Ale series takes two interesting left turns. A Belgian-style golden triple is the starting point of this beer, but the first left turn is nearly immediate with the addition of dried chamomile flowers, triticale, and Belgian amber candi sugar. The second, and rather unusual left turn takes us half an hour up the road from Stone to Temecula courtesy of the addition of just-pressed Muscat, Gewurztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc grapes from our friends at South Coast Winery. As the Stone Vertical Epic Ale series has moved through the calendar, we found that the brewing schedule for a 10.10.10 release coincided nicely with the grape harvest, neatly providing an interesting twist in this epic ale.

Bottle: From a great brewery made famous from its strong hop brews, they produce this interesting and well crafted special release including chamomile. Really Epic. Food Pairing: It´s food by itself.

Sampled at Chris’s bachelor party. Golden brown pour with a somewhat sour smell yet sweet flavor. Tasted as if it was it had been barrel aged. Had a slightly syrupy mouth feel.

22 oz bottle pour split at Brouwers. Pours a light golden apple juice color with very little head. Sharp fruit, booze and spice aroma. Flavor is dry. Applesauce like with a little spice and sweetness. A bit of a high carb burn to it, though it’s not boozy at all. Suprised at the level of carb. Overall flavorful and different. Glad I tried this.

Pours cloudy reddish gold with a small fizzy white carbonation that quickly disappears. Aroma is very fruity, winelike from the muscat and chamomile with some belgian aspects. Taste is rather delicate for something that has been sitting in a bottle for so long. Fruity, floral, belgian yeast and candi sugar sweetness. Great triple aspects and then the dry mouthfeel from the wine grapes.

gpekar (481) - Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Poured a hazy amber with a 1 inch beige head immediately after the pour, but the head becomes just a film rather quickly. The aroma was fruit and a bit like a dry white wine. The initial taste was slightly tart, but a good malt sweetness comes along to mellow the taste out. The beer had a thicker texture. This beer was not my cup of tea, so to speak.

650ml bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Golden yellow in colour with a very thin white head, little to no lacing. The aroma is very floral, some oranges, lots of spice, some banana, light sweetness. The flavour is very floral and herbal, quite a bit of spice, noticeable alcohol, yeasty. Thin warm mouthfeel, medium/light body, mild carbonation. Finishes long and warming, some apples.

From notes. Tasted on 12/12/12 from a capped 22oz bottle with Curtis, and the Nashville crew. Pours hazy light orange with a thin bubbly white head that leaves thin bubbly lace. The nose is sweet and malty with grapes and a touch of earthy/spicy yeast. The flavor is has the sweet malt up front, with some nice acidity coming from the grapes, and an added bitter component on the back. The body is medium with light carbonation and a long malty and grapey finish.
