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.

Bomber: light yellow with minimal head. Soft, sweet nose with clean delicate flavors. Sweet forward, refreshing. Alcohol is well hidden. Lovely beer. ~m --RaucusBacchus

The beer is relatively headless and not very strong in the aroma. The flavor however is quite nice. Some sourness with a little peach but not in a sweet way, I found this to be one of the better lips,of faith fruit beers. In fact, I think I could drin a whole bunch of these. Vastly underrated, IMO.

It is a little citrusy with a hint of peach. It's a yellowish-orange color with an aroma of a slight peach smell. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a cold bottle. Cloudy orange color, nice white frothy head, good lacing. Slight sour smell, with some floral and vegetable accents. I canít quit describe the flavor, but I like it a lot.

Definitely unusual. The base taste is Belgian yeast. After that, a cacophony of complexity that defies complete identification of individual components. Getting some smokiness (from the wood aging maybe?). Getting some bitterness (from the dandelions maybe?). Getting some sweetness (presumably from the peach juice?). It's interesting and I like it for its uniqueness -- this to me is what American craft brewing is about: saying "screw it" to established categories and blazing new trails. Solid B/B+. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Citrus fruity, herbal aroma. Fruity flavor; Somewhat peachy--but Iím not sure Iíd have guessed it was peach. Sweetish... A little tartness, too. Peppery, herbal flavor. Some bitter dandelion flavor in the background.

Aholmb1 (84) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Appearance: opaque, cloudy orange color, poured with a nice size white head about two inches, the head is dense and leaves nice lacing on the glass Aroma: sweet, citrus Taste: notes of peach, grapefruit, citrus, boasting with sweet fruit notes Palette: slight bitterness in the middle, light medium body Overall: this beer has a lot of flavors that mingle well with each other, I was excited about peach being added which I can taste the peach key note but maybe would like a bit more, very refreshing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Silphium (3158) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Draft at Renoís East, East Lansing. Hazy medium-orange body, medium clumping off-white head. Funky fermented fruit nose with lots of pineapple and banana and hints of peach. Estery, sweet, and dense. Sharply carbonated body with the same fruits noted in the aroma in addition to candi sugar, hints of plum, bread dough, and bubblegum. There is a heck of a lot going on here, and itís all good. I really enjoyed this beer.

Cybercat (2985) - Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Strong, malty aroma has floral and herbal notes and more than a hint of fruit. Pours a slightly hazy and somewhat bubbly solar yellow with a very thick and rather fine-bubbled ivory head. Sharp, flowery flavor has a definite pear overtone as well as herbal and sweet notes, with a subtle hoppy tone. Firm, smooth texture has some good fizz, and leaves a very pleasing and lip-smacking finish. Dandelion beer? Warum nicht?

Bottle. Let this beer age for about 9 months. Lightly hazy gold with a short white head. Aroma cold is not that bold. Allowed to warm, it blossoms. Yeast is most prevalent followed by equal parts peach and dandelion. The dandelion is muted. A little wet hay as well and a very mild funkiness. Taste ups the yeast and candy sugar, light woody notes, pineapple. Body is medium with a strong early carbonation. Beer has little alcohol burn at this age despite its high ABV. Finish has kind of a melon quality. Not exactly dry, but ending on a sweet flourish. An excellent beer.
