This beer was a big surprise. Dandelions used as a bittering agent well it works great. Great flavor easy to drink not bitter lots of carbonation. Looking forward to next years release.

2016 bottle at red rock, slc. sour smell initially surprised me, but its fine like a cider. it looks great. copper with stable thin foam layer. plenty of carbon. taste when cold especially is sour with the alcohol really hidden. letting it linger presents a slightly earthy but not grassy champagne like taste. with time and temperature the Belgian yeast appears and lets you notice the 9%. only for a moment though then green apple and pear dominate the aftertaste with a hint of spices maybe. this is fantastic.

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.

Light beers are not my favorite, but very few things beat Paardebloem. Itís light, bright, crisp cider feel, then the dandelion hits you and itís just a great beer. Hard to describe since Iíve never had another like it. Wish it was easier to get. And cheaper. 14 bucks a mini

Bottle thanks to Dallas. Pours a hazy orange with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is funky, wood, lemony. Medium mouth, tart lemon, funky, light dry finish, very nice.

750ml bottle at RedRock
Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden with a same white head that dissipates quickly
Aroma: Sour aroma, citrus and grapefruit
Taste: Bitter at first then it is citrus, grapefruit and yeast. Finishes with a mild sour taste
This is a very different beer that is real good. Very well balanced with no real overpowering flavor. Is is almost like a dry wine with a sour taste. I enjoyed drinking it and hope someday that we can get it to go, instead of just available at the brewpub.

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.

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.
