08/22/12 On tap. Part of flight of Stone's stuff, this is the lighter entry at a mere 6.9%. Much lighter mouth feel than the others. I swear as it passed under my nose I caught a hint of Bologna/Bratwurst...I know...I know, but that's what I got.

Research leans toward Belgian yeast & saisson styling and who am I to argue?

Serving type: on-tap

a. A bit lighter than I expected, a yellow color. Can see through. On the first pour there was a 1 finger head, but agitating the yeast and giving it a second pour out of a bomber yields a 2 finger head. Thin lacing.

s. Citrus and hops.

t. Here is where the yeast agitation really shows through. The first glass I had was very good at best. If I had to do it all over again, I would have filled the glass half way, swirled the remaining beer in the bottle, and poured the rest of the glass. Agitate the yeast with each pour. I would call this a mix between a white and an IPA, with the IPA coming to the party late.

m. So smooth - so Stone.

o. Outstanding once the Yeast comes to the party. More white than IPA, but a great combo!

A - Nice appearance. A beautiful dark amber color. Very clear.

S - Hoppy. A little too hoppy for me. It comes down to personal preference, but I was slightly off put by how strong it was.

T - As with the smell, the hops taste was strong. At first it sucks you in, you're thinking it's not too prevalent, but then it kicks it up. If you're a strong IPA drinker, it's for you.

M - Comes out bitter in the end. Too bitter. Again, it's not my cup of tea.

O - It comes down to personal preference. Not a beer I'd try again, but I can see it's charms with other drinkers.
