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! ALIBALI (2482) - Kiel, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2016
Hart am Limit operierendes Wit der exorbitanten Sorten. Schwer, süßlich, outstanding helly hot. Viel von Allen und noch viel mehr. Gross und mächtig. 0,15/3,30€. Fass. STONE BREWERY BERLIN. malrubius (3018) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 5, 2016
Bottle from Brewtopia. Slightly hazy gold with lasting head and lace. Beautiful aroma of coriander light orange and bready tangy wheaty esters. Sweet vanilla grass wheaty tang with spicy peppery finish. Medium light body soft carbonation. I’m not doing a good job of describing how FUCKING EXCELLENT this is. Almost like a white IPA and not one of the shitty ones. WHOOOOO!!!! JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - DEC 8, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2006 an update, 24 Dec 2006, I just had some of this on draft at Stone’s Winter Storm at their Stone World Bistro. It’s in great shape. Golden colored, fruity with a great finish. The balance is fantastic. Can’t believe it’s nearly 5 years old.
honey colored, w/ a great nose & flavor. Stone’s description is accurate. It is ’trippel-ish’. Very nice 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2003
Never though I would get the chance to enjoy this fine and historic brew. Much thanks Marc. Had an orange brightness to it with a background of squash haze. Head is near moderate. Smells like hard candy and trail mix, though more on the dried fruit side, thatn the nut side. The trail mix stays on for the flavor and combines with sticky carmel and sweetness/bitterness fight it out for the finish. Damn impressive I must say.

Slightly cloudy yellow color with a small to moderate head. Nice intense flavor of coriander and spices, also very yeasty. A punchy and slightly dry aftertaste. Fruity, complex, and a great beer. This is right down my alley. teamrunkle (382) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2016 Peel, a good bite. Excellent beer from these guys. Draft at the brewery and a bottle to go. Coriander. Clear, White head. Lacing. Rate rate following bottle. googleimage83 (170) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2017
Pours a fairly clear but impressively bright peach-honey orange. Head is not large but settles almost instantly. Aroma is big, with sugary sweet tropical fruit notes mixed in the usual belgian wheat qualities; honey, peach, papaya, banana, sweet orange, yeasty esters... lovely. Taste is a great mix of sweet, spicy and dry. Boozy and astringent peach elements meld with the sweeter tropical fruit and orange. Orange peel really shines through, in a way that compliments the other flavours. Some faint nutmeg and caramel malt character. Big, complex, high-quality flavours - this is great stuff. It’s not a style I have a ton of experience with, but I can confidently say it’s the best of its kind that I’ve had. BadAprilia1000 (435) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 1, 2017
Pours a great orange like hazy gold with a very lively white head. Aroma is apricot, orange, banana, yeast, hay, honey. Taste is very similar, notes of apricot, yeast, stronger honey than in the nose, citrus, and a nice touch of zest bitter at the end. shrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2017
Bottle. Peach, orange, coriander, biscuit malt, and straw aroma. Golden yellow with giant off-white head. Moderately sweet banana, orange, coriander, biscuit malt, and mildly bitter grass/orange peel flavor. Great body and balance. Excellent.
