Bottle picked up at SL. Pours a yellow color, with a big frosy white head. Tart aroma, with some bready maltiness. Beer temperture was on the warmer side 55 degrees. Taste is intially tart, then a sweet candy sugar comes through on the tounge. Little to sweet for my taste, but not bad at all. Body is on the lighter side. Overall: I expect hoppy beers from stone and the rest of the CA brewers... so even though this isnt bad just a little let down. Wouldnt buy one again. biznizness (1128) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 24, 2010
Interesting character... one of my problems with these types of limited edition beers is that you really need to drink quite a bit of the beer to get your head totally around it... especially these complicated ones. And the limited edition makes that hard and expensive. So, the verdict is... good, but I want more. kidmartinek (5001) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 1, 2010
light yellow. Small white head. Strong beer aroma sweet and tart. Belgian yeast flavor with a long light sweet finish. Good beer. Mad_Ferret (1023) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2010
Clear golden colour. White short head. Nose is pretty low key. A bit yeast, some citrus and fruits like apple and pear, white wine. Taste is quite special and hard to grasp. I think its all that chamomile. Its like a rollercoaster in your mouth. Theres also citrusy flavours and a hint of something sweet that quickly goes away into a bitter acidic battery acid kind of thing. Its quite good but the tastes are just totally incapable of settling in any kind of line for me. I guess you people who bought more than one bottle to store will see what some time will do for this. rman18 (312) - Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Very odd beet. Perhaps I was expecting something different but this was extremely sweet but tasted artificial. Almost like red bull.

Smells like dish water. Starts light and moves into a smooth amber finishing with faint grapes and banana esters. Solid but could be more momentous fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Bottle pours clear amber orange color with off white head. Aroma is belgian yeast, white pepper, and herbal spice. Lively carbonation on the mouthfeel. Flavor is more belgian tripel, spicy, peppery, and finishes dry. I don’t get any wine notes here at all. Tastes more like a belgian tripel than anything. Just average. golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - OCT 21, 2010
Bottle. Orange pour with very little head. Flavor is is semi-sweet juice, yeasty, some belgian malt, and wine essences. Aroma is grapey and yeasty; pretty strange to me. Flavors seem fabricated. dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Bottle pours orange-gold with a white head. Aroma is dusty and doughy yeast, reinforced with underlying floral/fruit notes (primarily from the gewurtz and sauv blanc), a touch of bubblegum and toast. Flavor shows basically the same. Overall body is moderate, with sweet belgian candi sugar quickly being dried by a somewhat astringent oak presence. dmac (6387) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2010
22 oz bomber from Jonathan Ron Brielle. Poured a great looking clear orange body with an average size frothy white head with lots of continually rising carbonation. Aroma was largely comprised of something between wine and grapes along with a heavy dose of yeast, crusty grains, rock candy and dried tropical fruits. Medium bodied with slightly strong tight bubbly carbonation and a dry finish with a touch of alcohol heat that is so subtle it’s not even noticed until it’s almost at the bottom of your throat. Flavor reminds me a lot of church, chunky bread dipped in cheap wine. This one just tries to hard and has to many ingredients going on for it for any one of them to make a nice addition. Basically it’s easily drinkable but just to complicated for it to translate.
