3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I started drinking this on its own and then used it as an antidote to a batch of my neighbor’s homemade salsa. Lovely appearance thanks to the haziness on the yellow, orange-tinted body. Grassy, vegetal, slightly citric aroma (grapefruit if anything). Flavor seemed a bit light and lacking a sustained finish. Some paper mulch, and more of a German style of hopping than the Belgian saison I was hoping to find. Progressively more disappointing as I drank it. Who really thinks of dandelions as an appealing flavor concept anyway? Bottle.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Moderate straw and dried grass for the malt and hops, earth for the yeast, with cardboard and green leaves in the background. Head is huge, frothy turning rocky, white, with good lacing and is fully lasting Color is clear at first but hazy at the end of the pour, light yellow/amber. Flavor start lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and faintly bitter. Palate is light to medium, between watery and dry, with a fizzy carbonation. Kind of an average pale ale with a bit of uniqueness to it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
s/o to Dr.Silverworm for the share. Golden yellow body with a white head. About 1cm. Recedes quickly into a ring. agitation restores it to about calf a cm. Smells sweet and flowery. Orange. Sweet citrus. Tastes very... insubstantial. Like the nose, but toned down. Flowery but a little bitter, too. warms up and comes better into the flavors in the nose but doesn’t do anything terribly exciting or unexpected. Mouthfeel is light-medium thickness. Tingly. In a weird way.

Aroma: smell is grassy, tart, and floral.
Mouthfeel: fairly light and frothy with a somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: unusual is the best word I can come up. A combination of floral hops with an acidic quality similar to a soft drink. There is also a grassy flavor and a lemony tartness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nothing really unique tasting about this beer, no noteworthy taste of dandelion at all. If this was just labeled as a lightly hopped session ale my review may be higher.
