Stone Cali-Belgique is a clear golden orange with a white head. A very interesting smell that caught you because of the combination of belgian style ale, with a bit of Stone’s pale ale scent. Then comes some of pretty nice floral and citrus hops and a bit of caramel malt coming out also. The taste comes the Belgian yeast that stands out nicely but isn’t crazy over powering. You will taste the banana and clove that is truly nice and also there is some good green apple flavors as well. The caramel malt create a touch of sweetness along with a pretty decent buttery goodness but it is quickly neutralized by peppery spiciness. It was on light after the taste because the brew doesn’t have much stick or oiliness to it. Overall, it is easy to drink, a well rounded and enjoyable.
