750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Hazy light golden body. Well retained big white head.

Smell - Pale malts with a light acidity and floral character. Bretty? If it's brett, it's very mild.

Taste - Much brettier. Light tartness. Pale malts again, but much spicier. Dry in the finish with a slight sweet kick.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied and dry. Well carbonated.

Overall - I'd never peg it as dandelion, but the flavor is very nice.

Buddy of mine from Wavre introduced this to me. Kinda like eating dandelions in a salad for the first time. First sip was WTF. Second sip was kinda interesting. Third sip had me hooked. Sharp, tart, and tastes like Spring in Belgium. This can make Saison DuPont or any other mainstream Belgian farmhouse ale its bitch.
