330 ml can served cold, bought in that London by the wife. Imagine an IPA made with Belgian yeast: Yup, that’s it. Sweaty feet and wet wood. Not sure what occasion it lends itself to, but tasty enough to stand alone.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at home. Clear golden with fluffy white head. Lots of grapefruit and lime, grassy, sweet malts, orange, dough, cloves, honey, cardamom, green leaves. It has indeed some US hops and otherwise it’s close to a filtered not too yeasty Belgian blond ale. Medium sweet and almost medium bitter. Medium bodied with a bit slick feel.

(Stone Cali-Belgique IPA (Cali-België)) Can 330 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 6.9%
Deep golden orange colour on the body, crystal clear. Tall and thick white head sitting on top with very good retention.
Aroma of fruits, grass, light peach, apricot, indeed something belgian on it.
Taste follows with apricots, belgian yeast, light citrus, grass, something saison-like, some malts.
Medium thin body, nicely carbonated.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Bevog Festival. Pours a clear gold with a frothy white head. Aroma of Belgian beer yeast, peppers, pine, spruce tip, dough, citrus fruits, light tropical fruits, sweet malts. Taste is sweet, spicy; fades with a lingering, medium-to-strong bitterness. Carbonation is medium, pretty soft. Medium to full, kind of oily body.
It’s a good mix, but a little disappointing if you really expect it to stand out - after all, that’s what Stone wants to be known for. It’s drinks nice enough, but still leaves you with that feeling that it’s an IPA _and_ a Belgian blonde, not a Belgian IPA. Feels more like a blend than a unique brew, if that makes any sense.
