Served on tap in a sample glass.

Appearance: Amber color, with a white head.

Smell: Citrus, malts, hops, pine notes, and cloves. Interesting combination of scents coming from this beer.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of citrus, hops, malts, and cloves. Much like the smell, it is an interesting combination of flavor.

Overall: Not a bad brew, but not my first choice. Little bit of an identity crisis with this one, wants to an IPA and a Witbeir at that same time, I guess that is the best way to describe it.

A rare sixtel (out of 2 available in the area) enjoyed on tap at The Attic last night.

The color is a medium gold with a brightness and clarity to it. A nice, creamy off-white head sits at a finger in height and shows some sturdiness. Consistent lacing is left on the glass in legs and patches.
This beer smells like a field of flowers and clovers with a strong yeast presence that blends well and speaks of the complexity found in the flavor. There are some tropical fruits and a big hop bouquet with very floral and drier hops notes, enough malt to balance and soften, and an undeniable Belgian yeast with a bit of sweetness (bubble gum) and lightly dusty earthiness. This is a fantastic beer that needs to be savored. Hoppy, as expected from Stone, with a softness from yeast and malts that plays very well.
Crispness is underlying in the feel before a nice smoothness comes out beneath and following it. The body is medium and the carbonation is moderate.
