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.

Piwo barwy złotej, klarowne, biała piana. W aromacie melon, cytrusy, biszkopcik, delikatne tropiki, brzoskwinia. W smaku melon, cytrusy, na drugim planie subtelny biszkopt, grejpfrutowa, dosyć wysoka goryczka. Piwo ma dosyć wysokie wysycenie i jest wytrawne. Przyjemnie się pije.

Can at home bought from my local supermarket. The best way to describe this is Belgium meets America. Couldnt drink too much of this

Can, 6.9% from Fakta. Good fruity and citric hop aroma along with notes of fat Belgian yeast. Almost clear golden colour. Good stable white head. The flavour is a lot like the aroma. Has a good fruity, grapefruity hop note. Also some yeasty notes, Belgian I suppose. Good clean bitterness.

Can. Tasty hybrid beer. You can taste characteristics of both IPA and Belgian blonde in this, and they complement each other nicely. Enjoyable, particularly after drinking a couple of IPAs, was a nice change.

Banana, other yellow fruit, very peppery and spicy. Grapefruity hoppy in the background. Aggressively dry finish with an astringent, rough, lingering bitterness.

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2017
Can from Tesco Extra, Longton. Pours golden amber with a white froth. I think I am missing something here. Tasted like a very bitter average golden beer to me. Disappointing.

pivnizub (10610) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2017
Büchse: Golden, hazy, medium-sized stable and lacy off-white head; moderate sweet-bitter lemony to flowery hoppy nose with pale malt and traces of yeast in the background; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied and pretty soft; lingering drier citric-lemony finish with a distinctive pale-malty counterpart. Well balanced stuff, even though the Belgian yeast is barely detectable...
