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.

Transparent gold pour. White head. Aroma of funky yeast, lemon, citrus pith, pine and sugar. Flavor is funky, tastes reminiscent of Rayon Vert, with some sweet notes and a bitter.Light carbonation. Light to medium body.

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.

monti24 (71) - Graz, AUSTRIA - MAY 24, 2017
Banana, other yellow fruit, very peppery and spicy. Grapefruity hoppy in the background. Aggressively dry finish with an astringent, rough, lingering bitterness.

niquillis (2604) - 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 (10523) - 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...

A nice and good aroma of sweet tropical fruit with some hop beitter. Also Floral and somewhate citrus-like. Taste is a little malty and medium sweet. Taste becomes fast nice fruity of light grapefrui, orange, peach and tropical fruit. A good hop bitter is coming up which is i good balance with the rest of the taste.

GriZZZly (172) - - MAY 13, 2017
Ar: slodowo, chmielu nie za duzo, intensywnosc srednio-niska, sporo z belgii, niewiele z IPA. Wyg: Jasne zloto, przejrzyste, ale lekko zmetnione, piana ring, ultra drobnoziarnista, dobry lacing. Sm: niezle, fajna chmielowosc, zaznaczona goryczka, dosc intensywna i przechodzaca w posmak, wysycenie raczej niskie, belgijska slodowosc, dobry balans, troche alko, zbyt delikatne jak na styl, niezla lekkosc jak na belgie, rowno ale bez szalu. Pos: Slod, troche chemielu, lekka goryczka nieco zywiczna.

Goldgelb im Glas, super haltende Schaumkrone. Sehr fruchtig herber Antrunk, tropische Früchtekomposition, sehr hopfig trockener Abgang.
