22 oz bomber style brown bottle with beautiful stone screen printed label in gold. Poured into a pint glass.

A - golden/yellow to light orange with a slight bit of haze. Fluffy pure white head that takes it's time setting into a solid ring of lace which provided good stick to the glass.

S - banana bread with some spice. Lemon zest with good sweetness following. Fruity like hop aroma along with a touch of pine notes. Amazing belgian style yeast aroma.

T - Belgian in style and Stone Brewing at heart. Flavors of banana sweetness with fruity aspects of lemon and orange. A touch of honey. Tasty wheat flavor. Cloves and spices. Hops give off a nice spice with little bitterness. Hops are very smooth however. Not the knock you in the mouth flavor like most American made IPAs. They are there, about to take full control and then they smooth out while you forget about them. Good mixture of both Stone Brewing and Belgian yeasts.

M - medium bodied and brilliant. Mellow feel mouth start to finish making it easy to drink. Good crisp, clean finish.

O - wonderful tasting beer with a Belgian funk paired with a Stone west coast style. Not a bad funk. A dang good tasting and flavorful funkiness. Cali-Belgique screams class and style. With it's mellow hop presence it's one anyone can enjoy.

Cali-Belgie Bottle:

Slightly hazy yellow orange with bubble white head and patchy lacing.

Smell is an interesting balance of cloves, nanner bread, star anise, honey, and then slight amounts of earthy pine among citrus and prickly, moist, musty, hops.

Perfectly balanced between Stone IPA and Belgian yeast influence. Plenty of west coast hop profile blends with mild spice notes. Subtle pepper notes blend with mild bitterness while Belgian sweetness plays upon citrus fruitiness.

Very nice, slightly dry, highly recommended for an IPA change-of-pace.

Get it.
