22 ounce bottle, says Best Enjoyed by May 2014. Guess this was in my fridge longer than I thought. Served in a DFH Signature glass, the beer pours a hazy dark golden/orange color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. It smells like peaches, herbs/earthiness, white grapes/wine, citrus, and some bready malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of a bit of clove and grassiness. It's fruity, tart and bitter. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit coating and has a good amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good brew, I liked it.

Color- cloudy golden peach. Medium head.

Aroma- fruity with notes of sweet green grapes and hints of earthy dryness like clay dust.

Taste- A complex brew. Starts on the sweet side reminding us somewhat of sweet blond Belgian ales, then gently introduces a hint of sour (probably the dandelion greens), with a faint wisp of vanilla in the lingering finish.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted 6/30/2013.
