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.

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.

"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.

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 - Iím 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.
