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.

This beer seems to defy classification, like its name might suggest. It is understated if anything. The aroma and palate are mild, but the flavor is complex, with soft citrus and yeast tones. I got this after trying the Belgian-style IPA from Three Floyds recently. I think their version is superior and I highly recommend it, but this is definitely an interesting beer of a similar style.

hajsman (25) - Gdañsk, POLAND - AUG 25, 2016
Very well done mix between Belgian yeast and American hops aroma. Citrus, bananas and medium, nice bitterness all come together in non-intensive, moderate way. Consistent and decent beer.

Hard to describe this beer, there are definitely more belgian characteristics than ipa ones, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing because its a damn tasty beer.

On tap at Erzbierschof. Aroma is bubblegum hop notes and the pour is a gold orange colour. Flavour starts off all belgian, with bread, orange and spices, before a good bitter finish. I really like this.

Clear yellow/gold with a big frothy white head. Fruity hops, bread, yeast, spice, bitter finish. Clean flavours and a good hybrid.

Blueshawk (20) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2016
- leuchtendes Gelb mit guter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Banane, Hefe, Brot, Honig, Bitterorangenschalen und etwas Moder - angenehm zurückhaltende Carbonisierung - der Antrunk ist erst einmal sehr gewöhnungsbedürftig - das durch die Carbonisierung samtweiche Mundgefühl hilft etwas, sich in die diversen Aromen hinein zu versetzen - im Mittelteil wird der Körper dann leicht klebrig bitter-süß und bringt eine Spur englischer Bitterorangenmarmalade zum Vorschein - erst gegen Ende setzt sich dann die grasige Hopfenbitterkeit durch und Versöhnt irgendwie etwas Fazit: Sehr vielschichtig, aber auch sehr unausgewogen

King_Alex_II (1181) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 18, 2016
Clear golden color with foam layer. Belgian yeast, dusty dry and hoppy nose. Belgian hoppy bitter taste with a very nice mixture for a Belgian IPA. Very dry bitter aftertaste.

mkel07 (5085) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle from Beer Cartel 180816. This looks the goods in the glass and tastes the goods in the mouth. Aroma is okay but a little bit mild. In the mouth the beer leaves a long dry aftertaste. Orange in colour with lacing that snakes around the glass. Fruity, hoppy and spicey all in one.
