3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml from Iron Hill, Media. Pours and smells much like a biere de garde, a bold gold with some amber at the edges. Moderate carbonation, and a very fruity nose. Body is moderate, a bit oily. The taste is bready and a bit washed out, with some light fruits surviving and only a trace of hops. Still, the finish is wicked dry, almost too much so. Not bad, but nothing I’d hunt down again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Maple Shade. This is one of Iron Hill’s better beers, and they know it, because it’s on tap all the time. It’s a Belgian dubbel with all the trappings. Nothing to write home about, but worth ordering if you’re at IH. Nice pillowy bright white head, everlasting like too much car wash soap, and sticky estery sweet flavor.

Hazy light tan-amber. Not much head. Aroma has light apple, and vague pale malt...smells lighter than it is. Has a plasticy character, light esters, fair bit of alcohol in the finish.

Pale wheat, malt, hops, citrus and some spice. it’s slightly bitter with a clean palate. Refreshing fruits keep it balanced. Very nice. I hear it’s rarely brewed. I feel honored to have tried it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the Ardmore Iron Hill. Apparently I got the last bottle in the entire system.... Anyway, pours a light straw golden with lots of foamy white head and bubbles. Spicy Belgian aroma. Mouthfeel is light and tingly... extremely dry too. Taste is full on Belgian fruit. Very Belgian, just so much Belgian flavors... you hopefully know what I mean. Dry and tangy with some clementine flavors. Good beer. But it was almost $20 a bottle. I know I shouldn’t buy it and then complain about the price. But the beer came highly recommended to me by a friend who used to work at IH. Anyway, IH can kiss my ass as I won’t be shelling out that kind of dough for an OK to good beer. Kiss it, just go ahead. And all their food is overpriced too.

750ml c&c bottle that me and Dan P. purchased for JohnGonk at the Maple Shade brewpub several months ago. Thanks for holding it to share John! Poured a hazy light orange color with a small foamy white head. Good beer, but not much to it. Taste and aroma of orange, candied sugar, light bready malt, and grass.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Maple Shade. Clear golden with a short bright white head. Nose is a sledgehammer of lemon, citrus, and yeast, more of the same in the mouth, de-soured lemon warheads in the distance with cherry and blackcurrant Skittles, just fantastic fruity accents, even a bit tropical. Pleasant phenols of bubblegum and clove (which really don’t ever seem to be found together), light black pepper, a little gummy, awesome rich mouthfeel and medium full body. Clean and complex.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Söt, jästartad och ganska fruktig arom. Lite bröd finns där också. Mjuk och trevlig.
Ljust gul och med mycket och storbubbligt skum. Varaktigt med ok rester.
Sockersöt smak som drar åt det fruktiga hållet men stannar för mycket i det sockeraktiga för att bli intressant.
Däremot ligger fruktigheten kvar i eftersmaken när sötman dämpats.
Mjuk och halvfyllig kropp med en låg kolsyra.
