COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When reading the name “Stone Cali-Belgique IPA”, “Cali” hints that it is a California style IPA, and this brew has an undeniable Belgian influence, indicated by the word “Belgique” (which is how Belgium’s French-speaking population says the word “Belgian”; the Dutch speaking Belgians say “Belgie”). We carefully selected a Belgian yeast strain that illuminates a fascinating new aspect of the beer that is otherwise quite simply Stone IPA.

The result is both completely new and different, while still being recognizable as a Stone Brew – and Stone IPA in particular. Think of it as an otherwise identical twin to Stone IPA that was raised in a Belgian culture. Literally.

Pours a clear deep gold with white fluffy head. Aroma of hoppy citrus, horse blanket, a bit wild and malt. Flavor is very much the same with a hoppy bite. Mouth feel is medium body with lively carbonation. Good stuff!

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2010
22oz bomber. Poured a dark straw colored body with a ring of ivory head that left a lot of nice lacing. Aromas of lemony hops and some pepper. A little soapy and herbal. Flavor of lemons, citrus and herbal hops. Light fruity sweetness and a piney/medicinal finish. Fine, soft carbonation and a medium/full mouthfeel.

from a 22 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow. Aroma is more hoppy but belgian is definitely there. Taste is smooth like a Belgian but with a slightly bitter hop taste. A good mix. Pretty nice beer.

sinkr (323) - Odenton, Maryland, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Bomber->Trappist: Pours a rocky, white head atop a hazy orange body. Aroma of hops that is relatively unfettered by any other smell. The body is light, flavor’s duration is long, finishing mildly astringently. The flavor starts out mildly sweet, then turns sour. A nice, enjoyable beer, without breaking the bank.
