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.

Ungstrup (29474) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2009
Draft at Stone Bistro. An unclear golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of spices - mainl coriander, but also with medium notes of yeast and peaches. The flavor is also sweet and very spicy - again coriander coming strongest, combined with notes of peaches, leading to a dry spicy finish.

On tap. Clear deep golden with a creamy off-white head that leave broad curtains of lacework. Aroma of yeast and fruit. Medium body, very fruity, some yeast. Late comes some citrusy hops that leave a dry finish with a light bitterness. A rare US/Belgo hybrid, that actually works. 070709

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2011 10th October 2008. GABF. Clear amber beer. Dry crisp palate. Fruity - distinct banana. Champagene crisp finish. 3.

16th March 2009
Slightly hazy amber beer, good white head. Palate is medium soft with a semi dry finish. Wonderfully integrated hops that are very well behaved without being wimpy. Grapefruit, sweet orange and pineapple followed by a minty coolness. Very smooth delightful IPA.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2012
Draught at Moeder Lambic, Fontainas
Deep blond color, with generous creamy head. Strong aroma, Belgian yeast, but also sweet, lightly cheesy and fruity, light lemon soap; somehow strange. Soft mouthfeel, with caramel flavor, some yeast spiciness, strong bitterness; long final (possibly to bitter). Missing cohesion of ingredients.
