Picked up another 1 liter growler today at Stone Brewing World Bistro And Gardens - Liberty Station after diggin' the one I got the other night so much! Poured into a Delirium Tremens branded tulip glass.

Pours a fairly clean light copper hue with golden edges when held up to a light source, decent off-white head that lingers for a few sips, giving way to nice lacing in my glass from start to finish. Smell is green apples, peppercorns, light malt, tons of winey barrel goodness, and a nice amount of sweet and fruity Belgian yeast funk. Flavor is on point with the nose but steps it up as far as balance. Perfect blend of 3 types of ale, woody wine barrel, fruity yeast funk, and just a hint of mild bitterness from the hop. This brew should seriously have wine makers shaking in their boots - you could never capture this perfect balance of wine and beer flavors/characteristics in any other fashion other than brewing a fine ale such as this. Mouthfeel is silky smooth with perfect carbonation for the style, mildly bitter, finishing extremely dry and clean.

By far my favorite Mixtape to date!

Clear light copper in color. Served with a minimal white head. Little retention. No lacing. Aroma is a blend if fruity and vinous qualities. Light sweetness and some very mild floral notes. Taste is similar, but the differences are more pronounced. Light sweetness. Moderate tartness. Quite Vinous with some foxy grapes. Light to medium body. Slight tartness. Low bitterness. A very interesting take on the Belgian IPA

This is a blend of 1/3 Stone Cali-Belgique IPA, 1/3 Stone Belgian Pale Ale aged in white wine barrels and 1/3 Stone LeVariation Ale (Stone Levitation Ale fermented with same yeast used for Stone Cali-Belgique), aged in red wine barrels and dry-hopped with East Kent Golding hops.

Draft at Winking Lizard, Bedford Heights,OH, served in Stone Mixtape Vol. 5 glass. Clear, amber with slight head. Vinous, slightly tart. Not as hop-forward as expected -- a Belgian IPA that's more "Belgian" than IPA. Fairly complex, but easy drinking.
