UPDATED: AUG 19, 2011 On Tap at Earth + Bread (King of Iron Hill event). Despite the description, this tastes very similar to Russian River Damnation, perhaps a little better. Excellent local beer. Kudos to the brewers at Iron Hill. Iím impressed. 8/19/2011 - Had this again last night. More of a farmhouse / Saison style - bread, coriander, pepper. Cloudy yellow body with thin head. Still enjoyed this one.

Dark golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus fruits, Belgian spices, floral hops, vanilla, toasted malts, and light toffee. Taste of citrus fruits, spices, honey, grass, and a bitter finish.

Draft and growler samples from Maple Shade. Pours a clear golden body underneath a large white fluffy head. Aroma is yeasty and fruity with notes of pear, peach, apricot and some citrus hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a quickly dissipating aftertaste. Flavor of yeast, bread, cereal, grassy hops and fruit. Not really my favorite style but this one is nicely done and really growing on me. Glad I have some left to sip on while Iím watching the Vikings beat up on the Ravens.

This was quite good. Clear bubbly body. Aroma has belgian spice and sweetness, candy, some zest and fruit. Nice sweet flavor and is balanced with a good spice flavor and yeast and grain. Nice.

willblake (2632) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - OCT 10, 2009
20091010 Tap at Maple Shade, NJ location. Golden color with lasting, lofty white head. Aroma is grassy, earthy, light cookie, light pineapple, and some grapefruit. Medium-light bodied with airy carbonation and quick finish. Flavor is pleasant, mild, and inviting with nice pils malt notes intermingling with the floral and spice of the yeast and hops. Fitting dryness that seems appropriate for the heft. Well done Belgian inspired session beer.

Tap at Maple Shade location. Pours out a reddish copper color with a light white head. Aroma is of some light spice, fruity yeast and some citrus. Taste is well balanced, light fruit, some yeast, lemon, and some citrus/pine hops linger in the background. A very easy drinking Belgian that would make a great session.

Sampled at GABF on 9/18/2010. This Belgian Ale pours a light gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet with citrusy hops. A medium bodied Belgian Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and grapefruity. Nice carbonation. A nice clean, bright and crisp hoppy Belgian Ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
