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. Itís 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 thatís been dry-hopped with East Kent Golding Hops. (Whew!) Coming in around 8% ABV, itís immensely fruity from the vino and Belgian yeast esters, and built as something of an ďhomageĒ 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.

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.

Draft @oak barrel. Deep straw amber color. Little to no head. Passion fruit and papaya in the nose, with some wine ethers. Big fruity, sauv-blanc headiness up front, mellowing into some softer citrus and pine ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A golden ale with a glow, and a thin lacing white head. In aroma, smooth fruity malt with light spiced notes, discreet hops, nice. In mouth, very belgian malt with grassy hops, citrus notes, alcohol warmth.

mikesaum (596) - Newark, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Draft at brews, pours dark orange with decent off white head. Aroma is very fruity with wine notes and some citrus with a oaky undertone. Taste is very different, nice blends between the ipa flavors and wine and belgian yeast, fruity esters,vinous, lots of oak. Glad i got to try it before it disappeared.

Clear orange/red pour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty, vinous, and taste is similar with a white wine flavor coming through. Good brew

Anova167 (280) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - OCT 5, 2013
I really liked this beer. The barrel aging was very apparent in the aroma. The flavor was very fruity and almost tangy. I donít think this is properly listed in the IPAís. very little IPA character. A bit sweet almost. Nice unique beer.

phaleslu (6281) - 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.
