"Cloudy bright yellow, sweet aroma and flavor, and a good body letting you know it’s a hefty beer. Floral and slightly sugary, with a little grassy bite from the greens, and a touch of tart. Really different, good brew."

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
At first pour, Paardebloem is a beautiful, dark, almost creamy looking orange, with an extremely frothy head that lingers. It is floral/grassy and citrusy, even a little woodsy. It says ’best enjoyed by May 2014,’ and I believe this is why the beer appears to be so flat to me. It’s a fairly light beer, the more I drink the more flavors I seem to notice. Overall, this isn’t my type of beer, I don’t think I would purchase it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle, says Best Enjoyed by May 2014. Guess this was in my fridge longer than I thought. Served in a DFH Signature glass, the beer pours a hazy dark golden/orange color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. It smells like peaches, herbs/earthiness, white grapes/wine, citrus, and some bready malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of a bit of clove and grassiness. It’s fruity, tart and bitter. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit coating and has a good amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good brew, I liked it.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Not too much aroma. Beautiful head, but a bit of chill haze. Nice bitter. Working through the add-ons tastes, the peach juice is present and nice balance - very minimal added sweetness, just flavor. Very light on wood agedness. Grains of Paradise and dandelion greens - not familiar with them in the brew, but there are some interesting tastes going on - I’m good with crediting them, or just great hop choices. Nicely done. Could almost fall under "fruit beer" more than Belgian.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
