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.

Split a 22oz bottle with friends. Poured a hazy light golden color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was some funk character, wood notes, yeast character, and some floral notes. Flavor was nice wheat character with Belgian yeast notes. Funky and interesting.

ellolovey (483) - Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2013
22 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a foamy sticky white head. Nice sticky lacing. Aroma of biscuits, leaves, a hint of citrus, and some wood. Taste is a little earthy, sweet malts, subtle hop bitterness. Weird sourness. Unusual taste. Interesting but not great! Gritty dry finish.

Hazy light gold with a thin soft persistent white head. Complex aroma full of earthy oak and juicy peach tropical tones. Taste is similar, bringing a very earthy and leafy/floral dull hop bitterness with some oak and peach and a touch of pear on the finish.

thirdeye11 (6044) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2013
(22oz bomber thanks to bu11zeye) clear gold, wispy sparse bubbles. Nose of some unidentifiable fruit, no real off flavors but nothing too exciting, maybe a bit tart (not sour though). Taste of apricot, little white grapeish, fruity kind of boring, but really nothing wrong with it, stone fruit, not much else.

BigBeer45 (1422) - Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle, this ale had a orange pour with a faint haze and gave a thick white head that lowered to a thin cover with a ring, there was nice lacing on the sides of the glass, the bottom of the bottle had a small thin ring of lose sediment, this drink had aromas of peach, apricot and orange fruit, faint grass and earth, fruit and sugar sweetness, it had flavors of peach and orange fruit, light malt with dandelion, there was a bitterness after the finish from the dandelions that gave some balance to the sweetness, this drink started out a little on the sweet side and ended with some bitterness, the mouth feel was medium (maybe a bit more) and was creamy, fruit and fruit sweetness was out front in this beer, the dandelions were in the background in the aroma and more obvious in the flavor, I believe this is only the second or third beer I have sampled that was made with dandelions and the dandelions were evident in this drink.

Bottle into a goblet. Pours hazy yellow. Big spicy, bready belgian yeast aroma with bits of pineapple and tropical fruit. Taste is fruity, peppery, doughy, with a light tartness. Finishes sticky sweet. Fairly refreshing. Not much boozy character.
