COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Winking Lizard Blend, which was designed by The Winking Lizard Tavern operating partner John Lane for the Ohio restaurant chain of the same name, and crafted in a blending session with Lane, GK, Stone President and Co-founder Steve Wagner, Bremaster Mitch Steele and the aforementioned Moynier. It’s a blend of Stone Cali-Belgique IPA, unreleased Stone Belgian Pale Ale aged in White Wine Barrels and Stone LeVariation Ale (Stone Levitation Ale fermented with the yeast strand utilized for our Belgian IPA, Stone Cali-Belgique IPA) aged in Red Wine Barrels that’s been dry-hopped with East Kent Golding Hops. (Whew!) Coming in around 8% ABV, it’s immensely fruity from the vino and Belgian yeast esters, and built as something of an “homage” to the Belgian Trappist classic, Orval. This beer will be featured at The Winking Lizard Tavern locations the entire month of June along with numerous other Stone beers.

Dogbrick (7839) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2013
On draught at Winking Lizard. The beer is a clear orange color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, floral hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, fruity yeast, pine and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a floral hops aftertaste. Somewhere between a Belgian Blonde and Belgian IPA. Decent overall.

phaleslu (6335) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Draft at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a clear orange-gold with a minimal off-white head. Aroma of peach, apricot, herbs, sweet malts, and red and white wine grapes. Flavor of pale and sweet malts, oak, vanilla, grapes, and florals. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation and a bright, vinous mouthfeel that has some floral bitterness at the end. Really nice and refreshing.

DrSilverworm (6274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2013
On tap. Clear orange copper color. Thin off-white head. Doesn’t leave much leave any lace. Head soon fades to nothing. Bigger body. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Red wine grape flavors and tannins are pretty noticeable here, pretty fruity stuff. Mild bitter taste, some tangy, lightly tart fruity sweet. Alright, but not really my thing. The components don’t really seem to blend well together.

Growler. Clear dark golden with a fizzy white head. Grape, grapefruit, caramel, and wine barrel aroma. Silky, bright medium bodied palate. Tastes of pear, orange, grape, grapefruit, caramel, wine, and subtle oak with a fruity, perfume like, vinous finish. Very good.
