It pours clear golden witha white head. The aroma has caramel, Abbey yeast, nectarine and banana. It has a medium body with mild carbonation. The taste has astringency, sulfur and grassy notes added and is very dry. This is not bad and interesting, but dumbfounding what this used to go for on secondary market after trying it.

Lucky me, a hunt and seek trip through Ohio(while on business) allowed me to find a bottle of this beer (along with the 03.03.03 release), didn't mind the $11 price tag...Looks and smelled much like a belgian triple, so Stone was right on there. Yes, it is also more hoppy than the traditional style, but that works very well here. Excellent balance, lots of character and no single dominating feature. Sweet but a fruity sourness is also detected on the palate (lasts long past the last sip). Too bad I only had one bottle of this fine brew, I would love too taste it in 2004-05. Ahhhhh. heaven! Way to go Stone! Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Bottle: The aroma consists of Belgian yeast, light banana, apple, and spice.It pours a transparent golden-orange with a two finger white head that fades to a minimal film outlined by a thin ring. There is some very thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate banana, Belgian yeast, and a hint of apple. The finish has light-moderate spice (pepper/clove), grass, and a touch of grapefruit. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, the beer is solid, but my real enjoyment of this beer comes from the fact that I paid $7 instead of the hundreds of dollars that the late to the party whale chasers (who put quite the damper on the hobby for me) used to pay.

Bottle: Poured a clear deep golden color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and limited retention. Aroma of peppery notes with some strong coriander notes with some wheat notes is quite interesting. Taste is a nice mix of coriander with some subtle peppery notes with some residual sugar from the wheat malt notes is quite nice. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not sure how it compares to the original but nice drinking this one.

Nice fizzy-creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry mineraly, weeds, yeast, fruit stones, overripe banana, minerals, sour grass, hay, flowers, alcohol, spices, bark, metal tank. Taste is harsh mineraly, weeds, yeast, bark, booze, minerals, medicine, fruit stones, paper, metal tank, spices, old leafs, harsh citrus peel. Medium to longlasting bitterness, harsh medical mouthfeel. Meh!
Lets see if i get this right - thanks to JohnC for bringing this to Noogfest III, and thanks to Springslicker for saving me a taste because I was late. Cloudy orange, nice thick head. Lots of floaties, too. Citrusy, piney aroma, and sweet citrus and hint of pine in the flavor, as well. Nice smokey notes, too, and a dryish finish. Very tasty. dwyerpg (6410) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 11, 2016
This is a strange beer. Tastes like a hopped up belgian wit. Has some lemon and coriander and is still fairly dry. Good but weird. A pint is probably too much for me. kaser (6378) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Orange pour from draft. Orange, dark, white head. Malty and biscuit taste. Citrus. Pretty good Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Undated Notes: Pours orange with a thin white head. Smells of coriander, honey, some cardboard. Tastes of up front sweet citrus and coriander with some earthines on the finish.
