Stone Stochasticity Project Hibiscusicity

Belgian-Style Ale
7.4%
28

In pushing the beer envelope, we aim to advance imbibers’ options for something far beyond run of the mill with this immensely thirst-quenching alternative. As original as the tongue-twisting name we coined for it, this robust Belgian-style ale is brewed with wheat, hibiscus and orange peel, bringing forth floral and citrus notes against a brilliant pink hue.
