COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When reading the name “Stone Cali-Belgique IPA”, “Cali” hints that it is a California style IPA, and this brew has an undeniable Belgian influence, indicated by the word “Belgique” (which is how Belgium’s French-speaking population says the word “Belgian”; the Dutch speaking Belgians say “Belgie”). We carefully selected a Belgian yeast strain that illuminates a fascinating new aspect of the beer that is otherwise quite simply Stone IPA.

The result is both completely new and different, while still being recognizable as a Stone Brew – and Stone IPA in particular. Think of it as an otherwise identical twin to Stone IPA that was raised in a Belgian culture. Literally.

jawlo (127) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Aromat: owoce tropiklane, delikatne wingorona i trochę belgijskich drożdzy. Wygląd: barwa złota, klarowne, piana obfita, ładnie oblepia szkło. Smak: na początku dość słodko - głównie owoce i lekka belgia, na końcu średnia goryczka, która świetnie kontruje słodowość. Odczucie w ustach: dość pełne, jednak niepodchodzące pod likierowatość, wysycenie średnie. Ogólne wrażenie: świetny aromat i bardzo dobrze zbalansowana słodowość z goryczką, wysoko pijalne.

tmongoose (1672) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Bottle shared pours a bright yellow color with white head s minimal lacing. The aroma is light malt some Belgian matters slight banana and hops. The flavor is very nice. Nice hop texture but enough Belgian esters mixed in that brings this beer full circle. Overall another excellent offering from stone.

So many ratings yet this is the first time I’ve seen it. Tap. Sweet perfume aroma. Pale yellow. Puffy head. Strong bitter medicine. Hardly any co2. Lingering finish. Not impressed. Needs a little civility.

Interesting brew, flavors work well. Pours light gold with a thick, dense head (like my brother). The aroma has the banana and clove thing but then a whiff of pine. Pretty much the same n the glass - starts off down the Belgian road then swings you back into piney grapefruit. Long finish. Yum.
