4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Golden beer with a white head. Some fruit and grain on the nose. A bit of wood and leafy or vegetal smell as well. Taste was nice. Some nice bitterness from the dandelion. Alcohol is well hidden.

5th October 2014
Hazy gold beer, decent off white head. Smooth palate, slightly dry. Mild fine carbonation. Mild and sweet generic tinned fruit juice. Floral sweetness. Super mild spice. Light semi dry finish. A nice idea but itís borderline stodgy, really wants something to give it zip. Hides the abv well though!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- enjoy by May 2014. Cloudy medium amber with a full head cover, broken curtain of lace. Taste is caramel malt doused with light spice and yeasty biscuit, moving to a bitter grass finish that is light and proper for this brew. A solid light Belgian - doesnít earn the 9%abv with taste.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste belgian yeast, floral, sweet. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again.

"Cloudy bright yellow, sweet aroma and flavor, and a good body letting you know itís 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 íbest enjoyed by May 2014,í and I believe this is why the beer appears to be so flat to me. Itís a fairly light beer, the more I drink the more flavors I seem to notice. Overall, this isnít my type of beer, I donít 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. Itís fruity, tart and bitter. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit coating and has a good amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good brew, I liked it.

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 - Iím good with crediting them, or just great hop choices. Nicely done. Could almost fall under "fruit beer" more than Belgian.
