ESCONDIDO, Calif. – Stone Brewing announces the release of Stone Dayfall Belgian White, a bright and refreshing beer brewed with Bergamot orange peel and coriander. Like all good sunsets, this beer is expressive of the brewery’s celebrated past and its bright new beginnings.
First, the beer:
Stone Dayfall Belgian White pours an inviting deep gold with haze and a thin white head. The flavor is ripe with citrus up front followed by floral and light herbal notes. Orange, spice and honey are present in the aroma, alongside subtle notes of graham cracker. It’s slightly tart with a smooth lingering citrus finish.
As the brewery’s most passionate fans know, many of Stone’s innovations flow out of Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Liberty Station, where brewers experiment daily on its small batch system. This is the home of the coveted Stone Brewing Liberty Station Witty Moron, the winner of two gold medals and one bronze at the Great American Beer Festival.* Brewers tweaked the malt to create a more light, traditional Belgian White and Witty Moron’s celebrated recipe lives on, making its national debut in Stone Dayfall Belgian White.
With Stone, every dayfall signals the reward at the end of a well lived day. Days in which the full spectrum of beer is available, so that everyone from light beer drinkers to hoppy IPA drinkers can enjoy the beer of their choice. Even a refreshing Mexican-style lager has earned the guardianship of the Stone gargoyle, as evidenced by Stone Buenaveza Salt & Lime Lager. Now with Stone Dayfall Belgian White, and its own unique flavor direction, even more ways to enjoy the dayfall are here.
Stone Dayfall Belgian White is a limited release of the Stone Pilot Series, a series of unique, high-potential innovations for consideration in Stone’s year-round lineup. The beer is now available nationwide on draft and in 12oz six-pack and 12-pack bottles.
