Like all special releases of the series, this creamy-hazy ale comes in a 0,5l Gargoyle-clad (the guardian symbol and patron saint of Stone Brewing) can with a specially-designed label. Stone Berlin launched the Stone UNIQCAN - a super-limited beer series - out of Berlin in July 2018. Hanscraft & Co./Stone Quince Essential Hazy Ale is a collaboration between Thomas Tyrell, brewmaster of Stone Brewing - Berlin and Christian Hans Müller the founder of Hanscraft & Co., who has been kicking out phenomenal German IPA’s since 2012. With this fruity-hazy NEIPA-inspired ale they help to restore an almost forgotten fruit to a new glory: the quince. The golden yellow, roundish fruit (which looks like a mixture of apple and pear) had gone out of vogue.  Even a ripe quince would take so long to cook that you could easily travel from Berlin to Franconia in the same amount of time. The quince's fruity-tart apple-pear-citrus-flavor of the Hanscraft & Co./Stone Quince-Essential Hazy Ale, takes the meaning of juicy to a whole new level and delivers a skillful balance of a distinctive and complex hop profile. Hanscraft & Co./Stone Quince-Essential Hazy Ale will be available exclusively at specialty shops starting August 1.   #hanscraftco   #stoneberlin   #stoneuniqcan   #uniqcan   #quniceessential Quick Facts Name: Hanscraft & Co./Stone Quince-Essential Hazy Ale Stats: 6.3% ABV, 45 IBUs Featured Hops: Centennial, Hallertauer Blanc, Amarillo, Yellow Sub Availability: 0,5l Stone UNIQCANs and from draft, Special Release     Tasting Notes   Appearance: Super-hazy and creamy like a quince smoothie.
