Pours a clear light yellow with a moderate white light head. Aroma is herbal, floral and a small amount acidic. Taste is bright, acidic, dry mouthfeel from the yeast. Very floral and herbal, perhaps hibiscus or perhaps that is the dandelions. I wasn’t the kid who ate them so I’m not sure what the taste is. Nice and light with lots of carbonation in the mouthfeel. Great Beer.

AirForceHops (4178) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 26, 2015
750 ml bottle with a bottling date of 7 /2014. Aroma is mild crushed dandelion, yeast and very mild citrus hints.

I have never had dandelion tea before and this is a very interesting and innovative brew. Flavor shows a good lasting honey through the sip with a light tone of floral hints and very mild tartness. The tartness is subdued by the honey. Sweet for sure but not overly so, real nice balance between the ingredients. The mouthfeel is lighter with a drying texture over the tongue. I love how balanced the flavor is, never thought I would drink a beer made with dandelions in it. Very nice with a high level of drinkability.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate florals, light honey, faint lemon peel, and a touch of herbal notes. It pours a hazy dull golden-orange with a small white heat that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a thin soapy ring. The flavor starts with with a quick dose of citrus. There is some light florals in the background. The finish has light-moderate lemon and lemon peel. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

Bottle: Thanks, Alex. Super murky, cloudy bright golden body with a sudsy, foamy white head that hangs around for a few moments before receding to a small collar. Aroma loaded with that familiar Hill terroir; loads of floral notes, musty cotton, mild barnyard funkiness, stone fruit, a touch of wood, faint lemon, plenty of grassiness. Very soft flavor. A nice wet cotton blanket funk explosion with a solid backing of minerals, modest stone fruit skins, wet hay, a touch of lemon, faint cobweb & barn stall funk, & a nice finish of grass & straw. Crispy mouth feel; light, yet full. Lovely saison.

wedgie9 (2504) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Tasted on 1/7/12 from a capped 750mL bottle. Pours a hazy yellow/orange with a thick, rocky white head that slowly recedes to fluffy lace, leaving thick residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is floral and herbal, pollen dandelion, honey, spicy yeast and pale malt. The flavor is pale malt, bitter dandelion, lemon peel, a lightly honeyed note, and spicy/dusty yeast. The body is light with lively carbonation and a long pale malt, spicy yeast, and lightly bitter floral finish.

PartyFowle (457) - - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle poured in a snifter. Made with spelt from Vermont, American hops, wildflower honey, dandelion flowers. Hazy apricot hue with one inch of dense, cottony head. Nose is a blend of lemon peel, light funky hay, dandelion, wet grass, floral. Can’t stop smelling it. Complex as potpourri, but subtle. A bit of sweet pear, a splash of vinegar, a touch of apple juice and some lemonade tartness in the flavor. Floral notes settle into the sides of the tongue, with a zesty lemon-lime character up front. Slightly dry, very quenching. The light body is silk on the tongue. Zesty carbonation; champagne-like. Not peppery; more lemony and tart. Very refreshing, complex but not combative.

Yellow color with a good sized white head and lacing foam. Earthy, brett aroma. Dry flavor with more yeast, as well as flowers and leaves. I got the dandelion but not the honey. Dry, lightly spiced finish.

blklab2007 (2081) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle 07/2014. Pour has a wheat golden color with a thin coating of white head. Aroma has mild tartness, yeasty goodness, a bit of fruit, and green dandelion. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation good. Flavor has more of a sour side than expected, light acidity, green dandelion, mild hop bitterness, and a clean lasting finish. This was real nice and I quite enjoyed it.

Bouteille partagée par Patrick, merci. Une robe jaune avec une mousse blanche. Une nez de pipi de chat, fleurs blanches, malt pils. La bouche offre un côté bizarroïde avec de qui semble de la bile, des fleurs, de la pisse, beaucoup de fleurs de pisselits en fin de dégustation.
