A super beer. On tap at the brewery, this frankinstine of a brew was a great accident by the brewers at Stone. Strong fruit aroma and very sweet taste. I really enjoyed this beer. I an glad I got to try a one time beer on my latest trip to SoCal.

On tap at Stone. Pours a medium golden orange with a 2 finger off white head that left good lacing. Nose was lightly fruity with some Belgian yeast and funk. Flavor was much the same while being dry and crisp, very refeshing.

1L growler fill from Stone Brewery (Escondido, CA). Pours golden-brown with a large white head. Aroma is somewhat yeasty with notes of light fruit. Flavor is predominately tart with some light fruit sweetness. Noticeable hops, but this is much closer to tasting like a straight-up Belgian than the Stone Cali-Belgique ale.

ON tap at Winter Storm. Color was orangeish with an off white head. Aroma of sweet malt, yeast, banana and earth. Flavor was heavy on the yeast and malt with some earthy spice in the finish. Quite unusual, and for me it really did not click that well for me.

Draft at Stone Winter Storm (01/25/09). Poured a pale orange yellow. Nose is very strong Belgium yeast with some sweet malt. Flavors followed. More Belgium then I expected from the description but I was wrong (not uncommon)! Worth a try!
