This review will be brief since my aprtments wifi crashed after I hit review & have to do it by memory
Pours an effervecent gold/bronxe with a finger+ of pearl colored head, Average lacing & head retention
S: Wet cereal, some dirt, green apples, pears & pineapple. Some black pepper too
T: Green apple skin, soggy cornflakes, white grape , pineapple up front. Lemons, green apple & band-aids along with white pepper as this warms. Finishes fruitty, with wet hay notes, some lemon, coriander & white pepper
Starts light bodied with assertive carbonation, smooths out as it warms. Thins out a touch with some dryness towards the end of the bottle (22 oz latter). Warming
Easily the best beer I've had from these guys. fairly driankable, but presents as stronger than the listed ABV

I really enjoyed this beer, my favorite to date from Battered Boar.
Fresh fruity aroma with a little bit of hops. It is best right after pouring it... later on it is ho-hum as it fades.
This beer pours a very attractive hazy deep yellow-gold with a white head.
Flavor is exceptional. Rich yet fresh tasting. Some crisp apple, fresh grain, pineapple, spices. Very well balanced between being crisp and dry on one hand but also having a nice tinge of fruity sweetness. I can definitely pick up the dandelions too. The label says they use rye too and it might be there in the flavor, with a little bit of spiciness, but it is more subtle.
Nice smooth mouthfeel with a just a little bit of texture. I agree with the reviewers that this felt like a higher ABV than what the label said... but I don't think that's a problem ;-)
Overall, I will buy this beer again. Very enjoyable sunny day beer, or maybe even a winter beer to make you remember the sunshine again.

22oz bottle into a tall tulip
A: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with three fingers of dense white merengue-like head. Retention is very, very good.
S: I get a mildly grassy aroma with faint cloves in the background.
T: The beer starts out with a light caramel sweetness followed by cloves. I get a bit of dark fruit as well, though mild.
M: On the thick side with strong carbonation.
O: There is not a lot going on wit this beer. Mild, straight-forward. Having said that, it's not bad.

22oz bottle served in a Duvel tulip.
A - Pours a hazy golden amber with tight-knit milky white head that regrows itself from a few swirls.
S - Stone fruit, sugary peaches, sweet bread, honey dew melon, herbs, spicy grass, alcohol.
T - Sweet bready malt, bruised stone fruit, pepper, dusty yeast, finishes with an earthy green bitterness. Alcohol is very evident.
M - Heavy body with ample carbonation, drinks hot.
Smells better than it tastes, good fruit esters and the dandelion creates a green bitterness. If it didn't state it on the bottle, I wouldn't have known there were dandelions in it though. Alcohol gets in the way. This drinks like 9% ABV. I wish it wasn't so sweet.
