3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a cloudy pale orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is very strange, with indiscernible spices, maybe a touch of the dandelion - can’t tell what else. Flavour brings out some interesting spice mix that I really can’t discern, along with some Belgian yeast, and dandelions. Quite light on the palate, with a very Belgian character. Solid off-kilter ale.

I thought this was a fantastic play on the traditional dandelion beer by using the greens. It gave the beer an earthy taste but still fresh and lively.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Central Market, 9/11/13
Aroma: The nose is floral and a little fruity, spice, grass, yeast, and some earthy notes
Appearance: The pour is orange-gold, with a lasting off-white head and plenty of lace-work
Flavor: The taste is a mix of spicy, sweet, and earthy, with plenty of floral flavor
Palate: The body is medium, it has a fairly clean, smooth feel, average carbonation, dry finish
This is a pretty nice one. There’s a lot going on here. It has quite a few components, but they are pretty nicely in balance. This really isn’t something I would want to drink regualrly, but it is certainly worth trying.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a one inch white head that slowly fades. Taste is of hops, grape, fruit, grass, malt, wood, pepper and spice. Similar aroma. Has a nice body with a slight dry and bitter finish. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Peach and dry wheat aroma, taste is a little sour with a short sweet finish, smooth and creamy across the palate. Aromas of butter and creamy vinaigrette dressing once in the mouth which frankly is off putting. I think it is balanced just really weird aroma which it seems like they were going for. I am just 100% positive this is not my preference in beers.

Lots of peach and some Belgian yeast funk. A little grassy -- maybe that’s the dandelion? No sign of wood-aging but still pretty tasty.
