As has been a tradition, we have “Anniversary-ized” a recipe from our history by cranking it up, making it stronger and more assertive. With this year’s Anniversary we decided to look back at a wheat beer that we released a couple of Spring/Summers a few years ago: Stone Heat Seeking Wheat. While it was a plenty tasty beer, we ultimately decided that it wasn’t that reflective of what Stone was all about, and we unceremoniously dropped it from our lineup. For the Stone 9th Anniversary Ale, we carried some of the characteristics from the Stone Heat Seeking Wheat --- clear, not hazy; hoppy, not yeasty; combining a delicious hop bitterness and wheat tartness --- and made some…well…adjustments.

From tap at Stone Bistro. Pours hazy to cloudy yellow with a lacing white head. Mild fruity hops aroma. Flavour is grapefruity and smooth, not as sharp as this normally gets. Good balance to the malt too. Smooth and refreshing hoppy finish.

Ungstrup (34349) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a huge ligth orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy, while the flavor is sweet hoppy, with light notes of caramel and alcohol, the alfa acids from the hops, even burn in the throat - nice if You like hops.

omhper (23455) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2008
Bottled at Petalax Beer Festival. Hazy golden, rich but brief head. Perfumy tropical fruit aroma. Sweet and soapy with medium to full body. Flavour of pine needles, bubbly esters and alcohol. A bit sweet with Belgian style fruit yyeastiness, Bready syrupy finish with long bitterness. Has that clean, biscuity streamlined typical Stone-style mouthfeel and a juicy concentrated flavour, even though the hop freshenss is lost in this one.

madmitch76 (22102) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2009
10th June 2008. Cloudy amber gold beer. Plenty of hops but offset by a barleywine amount of malt. When it was straight from the fridge actually thought it was a barleywine. Very drinkable.
