I picked up this single brown 12oz bottle at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99, making it $1.67 for 1 bottle. I believe this to be my first dandelion beer, not surprisingly coming from a company known for brewing beer with unusual ingredients.
The beer poured a cloudy yellow color that looked sort of like lemonade. The 1-finger white head lasted a few minutes and lacing was decent.
Very interesting smell - floral and lemony with faint bready maltiness and spice.
I never ate a dandelion before, but I picked up what I perceived to be an herbal dandelion flavor with a peppery kick. It's slightly bitter with a touch of malty sweetness for balance. The lemon that I picked up in the nose was also there, but not as strong as the nose would lead you to expect.
Very light bodied with spritzy carbonation.
It's not a flavor I would crave, but I'm glad I tried it.
