Aftertaste:
Lots of stone fruit, honey, peppercorns, Belgian bread with clove and coriander spice in the finish. No alcohol in the taste. A sipping beer with some crisp and refreshing aspects and medium mouthfeel.

Overall:
Holy shit, I was damn surprised by this one. If you want to try something similar, try Tripel Karmiliette. That was very similar, although I will admit, this one had more fruitier flavors. This was like biting into a fresh fruit. It was very fruity. Definitely recommend this one to the masses if you like extra fruitier Belgian Pales/ Tripels/Blond Ales.

Anime Corner:
Aquarius from the Saint Seiya Golden Angels series was chosen in this pairing to show case the colors of the label and the flavors. There are a variety of Stone fruits that relate to the beer name and even though Aquarius is not stone, unless you mean the fact that Aquarius holds the liquid fruit in a stone pitcher or ceramic pot, then sure I guess it could work. Aquarius is the free flow of sweet nectar that hold it in the pot ready to be poured. The beer is in a pot like fat bottle and like Aquarius pouring the water, we pour the sweet nectar of gold to enjoy and bring forth the great treasures of the beer. Can you find any other things that pair well with this beer?
