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.

1/31/2014: New Belgium Paardebloem... I asked the bartender about this beer since I didn’t know what it was and all she said was that it was "lighter with some dandelion" flavor. This wasn’t really enough to go on, so I asked to taste it and discovered that the beer was delicious and unique, so I asked for a tall and I’m glad I did. While drinking it, I enjoyed the fleshy fruit flavor paired with a peppery spice; the bready maltiness paired nicely with the oddly bitter dandelion; the finish was slightly woody and dry; I could tell there was some read alcohol lurking inside, but I had no idea that it was 9% while drinking it! This is a great beer and I hope to enjoy it again sometime! 23 fl. oz. draught at Brazenhead in Mason, Ohio. Rating #192 for this beer.
