Draft. Hazy golden yellow color, fluffy white head, nice lacing. Aroma of funky, dusty straw and pepper. Taste is very slightly tangy straw and raw bread dough. Nice.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy and very light amber color with a moderate off-white head. Nose is fairly grassy and earthy, but doesn’t have a lot of appealing elements for me. Taste is a little sweet, I think, with a bit of a sticky finish. Not a huge fan of this.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy yellow with a tall, off-white head.
Scent is tropical fruit, grass, yeast.
Flavour is honey, tropical,.....syrupy feel...thick.
Wheaty...like a fruit-hefe-Belgian hybrid.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
At Flanny’s during a New Belgium tap takeover. Pours a hazy, deep orange with a two-finger frothy head. Aroma of grapefruit, some very sweet tropical fruit esters, and a slight touch of barnyard funk. Extremely sweet - lots of honey and mango - at first, which is a bit of a surprise after reading the deScription, with a slightly tartness to finish. The bitterness from the dandelion greens doesn’t emerge until the beer warms for a while, then it complements the tropical tartness. Light body with a slight woody astringency. Interesting brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bready, funky, bitter, with lots of grains of paradise. The beer is a deep coppery color with a cream white head that mostly dissipated. The palate is smooth and easy drinking. Notes of earth and lots of bread. Light tartness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Pours hazy yellow orange with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet tart fruits, some bready malt and a bit of funk.
The flavor is sweet bready malts with some tart tropical fruits, some funk, vinous notes and herbal notes. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, an interesting fruity funky belgian.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Picked up at the COOP for $7 ... Saw it for $10 at a different establishment. Pours golden with a very slight haze... a short lived white head does provide spotty lacing.
The dandelion greens are fairly present in the aroma.. bitter and "green".. some honey essence makes the spicy notes bloom a bit... smells sweet and a bit peppery.
The Belgian yeastiness comes out as mild apricot ester ... again pretty peppery with more of a background dandelion green flavor... is too sweet IMO...
The residual sweetness actuates a fairly low carbonation making the beer feel pretty thick. I like my one glass (and maybe the next), but this is going to be a chore to finish.
I much would have preferred a lower ABV brew with a spritzier texture and more drinkable.
I had a couple bottles of the Red Rock Paardebloem and enjoyed it much more.
