On tap @ Iron Hill Mapleshade on 9/25/11. Served in a 10 oz footed Pils glass.

Pours a clear copper, with a ¼ finger of bright-white head. This maintains some foamy edges that flare-up in to a solid ½ finger and leave back rich swathes of lacing. The aroma smells fresh and leafy in the nostrils, with a lively spiciness to the nose that is layered on top of sweet notes of fruit and sweet toasted bread. This is decent.

The taste is sweet grains and fruit, with a firm hoppy base of green citrus, sticky pine resins, and a leafy bitterness. The whole profile just has a firm and tight feel to it, with a crisp and spicy finish that ends this quite dry. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a prickly feel up front that then gets much more soft and creamy across the back as you swallow. Pretty smooth on the palate overall.

I enjoyed this. It came off as a hoppy Belgian Ale, with a clean, crisp, and spicy dryness that left you wanting to take another sip. I’m glad I checked this one out.

Taste: The flavors are esters, pine, and yeast.
Mouthfeel: The body is thin, with a dry clean finish.

Don't drink and review.

This on on tap at the Maple Shade Iron Hill on 10/21/2009. The beer menu said it had an OG of 1.056, a color of 4, an IBU of 33, and had a 5.4% ABV. The beer board said it was brewed with Cascade and Amarillo hops and with Orval yeast. They served it to me in a 12 oz. goblet.

Caprice poured a lightly hazy lemon yellow with some faint orange highlights along the side. I could also easily say that it poured a pale gold color. I think it depends how far you raise your glass into the light. Sitting on top was a 3/4 of an inch cotton white head of foam. This head of foam had great retention that left behind a number of white rings and one single stick streak of white lace.

The aroma was fruity at first with a mix of of fruity and citrus fruits. After the fruits had enough, in comes the scent of peppery citrus hops. Usually the aroma is is over when the hops come in, but not this beer. The aroma then finishes up with a whiff of pale malts and that Orval yeast.

It was a fruity taste, but isn't as fruity as the aroma was. It was more of a peppery citrus fruity taste. It was hard to pick out just one citrus fruit. They all just blended into each other. Not only was there peppery citrus fruits, but also some lightly peppery citrus hops. I couldn't taste any malts, but my taste buds were able to taste a speck of that Orval yeast at the end.

This was a medium bodied Belgian style of beer with a good level of carbonation to it and a mild peppery aftertaste of citrus fruits, citrus hops, and a hint of yeast. This aftertaste will linger on for a few seconds.

Overall, I thought this Iron Hill did a very good job brewing a nice little Belgian style of beer. It was a little peppery some times, but it was still a good American brewed Belgian style.

3.6/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

-Served in a Chalice 5.4%abv on a rotating basis. This beer is considered a american-belgo beer by the brewer and heavily influenced by La Rulles Estival. A belgian with american hop influence.


A: Poured a lemony-orange with a fairly good transparency. On top sat a 1 finger bright white, frothy head that was very well lasting. The lacing was very good, clinging to the glass walls for dear life leaving a full sheet coating. Visible carbonation was light, almost non-apparent at times.

S: The nose was composed of fresh whole lemons and fresh whole oranges against a dry pilsner backing. The overall strength was rather light.

T: The flavor was clean, with dry orange peels and a light dried lemon presence against a dry pilsner backing. There is a muskiness of citrus while the finish was dry with a tartness of orange peels and breadiness. Overall the flavor was very polished and smooth with a gentle flow and transition from start to finish. Hints of dried flowers are present on the fade.

M: light bodied with a smooth texture. A very light carbonation presence is observed while a dry tart citrusy nature is left behind on the swallow.

D: Drinkability was good, clean and well polished making for a very smooth and easy drinking experience. Enjoyable and you can easily consume several of these without being overwhelmed.
