UPDATED: JUL 25, 2014 2011 bottle consumed in 2013. Gold, clear, persistent white head. Aroma of pilsner malt with a lightly toasty cracker-like character, light earthy spice, some light fruit of pears and strawberries. Flavor is similar with some more herbal notes and soft bready malt impressions. Light in character and complex and interesting. --Re-rating after having 2014: similar to above with perfect balance of tartness and acidity with toasty malts and light fruits of strawberry and pear. Very well made, nice.

Paardebloem batch #2 is slightly hazy and light gold in color with peachy/lemony nose. It has a unique floral bitterness with a big malty backbone. There is a touch of sourness along with some nice peppery notes This provides a nice balance for the big spicy/sweetness the ale carries. As the ale warms the toasted grains become more apparent and the sweetness from the ale become a little less pronounced.

Thanks to Ibrew2or3 for the share at the recent Tampa tasting I made a brief cameo at! Thx you guys rule! Hazy straw colored pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is hay and lemongrass. Initially this is a crisp tart lemony saison. Finish is dry and salty. Floral aftertaste.

Big thanks to douglas88 for this one. Waxed 75cl bottle pours opaque copper – gold with off white head. The aroma is smooth hay, lemon like acidity, spicy yeast, firm herbal notes and some saltiness. The taste comes across as wheat, lemon and salt to start with and then it gets herbally and apple like to midway. It ends with apple notes and some tartness. The tartness helps to create a somewhat dry finish.

Thanks to IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours a hazy yellow with an off-white head. Nose is funk, herbs, Belgian yeast, pear, pepper, apple, and some malt. Flavor is similar with funk, herbs, grass, pear, esters, pepper, and green apple. Light-bodied, fizzy, and very enjoyable for a saison-esque Belgian ale. Very good fruity summer beer.
