A Belgian-style farmhouse ale. Bright and light-bodied. Light golden color with a light head.Earthy, fruity and spicy with a refreshing finish. A touch of citrus in the flavor. Alc by Vol: 5.5% A very interesting offering. I thought that this was easily the best pour of Iron Hills May seasonal sampler.

I knew I had another Iron Hill beer. Here’s my notes: At the brewpub, this was poured into a pint glass. The appearance had a golden yellow color with a bar pour’s thin foamy white head. The smell had some lemon, grass, herbal and florally sweet, at the end a nice light spice came in (Sorachi Hops?, maybe). The taste was sweet, fresh with a crisp spice overflowing right on out gracefully over top of my taste buds. There was a sweet sticky and peppery aftertaste that lead to a dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionable quality about it. Overall, really nice saison by Iron Hill. If I lived in the Lancaster area, this would probably be my go to beer by them.

Floral nose with a bit of cookie dough and crackery malt. The taste is lightly sweet, lightly bitter with fresh citrus hops, sugary malts and honey, light hay. Very nice.

In short: A refreshing floral belgian blonde ale.
How: Fresh hand-bottle from Dickinsonbeer. Pre-BCTC 2010 warm-up tasting.
The look: Cloudy blonde body topped by a medium white head
In long: Nose has a lot of flowers. Taste is a bit fruity (pineapples mainly with citrus notes), lemongrass, dandelions, Social Tea™ cookies, lemon skin. A bit tart. The hopping has a lemony and citrusy signature. Could have used more attenuation. There are some light rustic notes here and there but overall this is far from a barnyard Saison. Enjoyable. That was second beer of a very long day of heavy drinking. The type drinking that health-conscious people avoid. But not me. I don’t care. Only the good die young. I’m safe.

Pale golden pour. The nose is quite light and pilsnerish with a distincly spicy yeastiness. Brightly lemony with a sort of fruity hoppiness behind that. Quite lean and spicy with a distinctly flinty bitterness. Pretty nice stuff.
