COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In 2008, Stone Brewmasters Steve Wagner and Mitch Steele traveled to Belgium, where they enjoyed a number of hop-forward Belgian tripels, pale ales and IPAsbeers that had taken a cue from the U.S. craft brewing movement and inspired us in return. Its a big reason 2008s summer season came to be known at Stone as our Summer of the Triple. Upon their return, they crafted Stone 08.08.08 Vertical Epic Ale, the seventh beer in the 11-beer Stone Vertical Epic Ale series. Packed with floral, spicy essence from Belgian yeast plus plenty of hoppy New World character, its our West Coast take on hop-driven Belgian beers.

Oscbert (1275) - Lincoln, California, USA - OCT 16, 2016
Strong aroma of vanilla, coriander, bread, yeast, spice. Pours a clear golden color with big foamy white head. Strong yeasty flavors. Bubblegum, vanilla, spice, with corriander and light caramel breadiness from malt. Medium bodied with medium low co2, lingering yeasty spiciness. Enjoyable Belgian style triple. Interesting and complex flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AndreasP (195) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2016
The take of a classical Belgian ale results in a beer which has too much alcohol packed into it. The basic brew contains banana, coriander and chewing gum flavour. I dont really like the brew

Borup (13119) - Albertslund, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2016

Zymurgeist2 (2034) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 23, 2016
On draught. Clear golden-copper with ringing white head. Spicy eaters and slight floral aroma. A spike of bitterness halfway through flavor is distracting. Caramel present. High alcohol warming.

Cokemonkey11 (713) - - SEP 20, 2016
Giant brown American bottle. Little transparent. Accidentally aged. Pours weizen amber and opaque with a thin foam subsiding average. Scent is Bologna cold cuts? Taste is exceedingly mild with weizen or saison yeasts, garlic?, Pepper. Probably has gone off but very good anyway.
