COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Using dandelion greens to bitter a Belgian-style ale blossomed from our brewers collaborating with Red Rock Brewing. This being our sixth interpretation together since 2008, expect a wonderfully complex ale fermented with wild Belgian yeast and blended with just a touch of wood-aged beer. Bitterness imparted from dandelion greens and grains of paradise will have you blowing wishes for sips.

The aroma is alcoholic and floral with yeast and fruit. The appearance is hazy gold. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a strange beer.

It's very different than other beers. It's a tart quality with a potent carbonated punch. Pours cleans yellow but loaded with flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JDBaker11058 (1334) - Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Appearance: clear light orange, with a scant, bubbly near-white head, no lacing, slightly syrupy legs. Aroma: mandarin orange, green tea, vegetal/floral notes, hint of honey cough drop. Taste: grassy and marmalade-y, sweet clover, herb garden, coriander, yeast. Finish: lingering syrupy sweetness, hint of tart, lactic wood, lasting vegetal. Notes: Not for me. Overly sweet, herbal, and weird.

On tap at gecko's. Light, a little tart, refreshing. Something is a little weird about it, but it's minor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours hazy pale yellow with a bit of white head. Aroma is vibrant, floral, slightly woody. Taste is bright mix of floral sweetness, some subtle, grassy hops, spicy belgian yeast notes. Interesting and complex mixture but it definitely works for me. One of the favorites of our bottleshare.

Bomber. Pours a murky, burnt orange, smallish white head with average retention and lacing. Nose is a bit of funk with somewet cardboard. Mouth is medium bodied, more tart than anything else (not getting really any sweetness at all), fruity yeast, grassy, some bread dough, drinks more like a sour than any of the reviews Iíve read on here (not getting any peaches or sweetness at least) the bitterness is there but there is also this odd prickly tingly sensation at the finish like my tongue is falling asleep. After reading up, I had high hopes for an interesting brew, but now that Iím drinking it, I gotta say that while itís not terrible, I am a bit disappointed.

Dandelion greens for bittering. Aroma is a little bit floral and grassy. Herbal, sweetish with slightly sticky malts.

monk191 (1049) - California, USA - APR 25, 2014
Nice and uncomplicated, good for a summer day, not the most memorable though. Pours a cloudy orange with a red hint and a white head. Not too much smell, some apple and peach. Taste is creamy with lots of peach, but not too sweet. Nice Hef finish. Had in the bottle.

Damico (2646) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2014
Pours unclear hazy amber lemon with a decent grayish white head. Aroma brings fainter empty fruit plus a yeast sweetness. Flavors brings perfumey and floral notes that suggest peach and the bitterness from the greens is unique, not overpowering, and settles positively with the peach juice.

No retention and good lacing. Smells of peaches, lemons and grass. Tastes of lemons, sour dandelion and peach. Sour aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
