Paardebloem (New Belgium & Red Rock)

This is a great brew from New Belgium's Lips of Faith series to enjoy during this beautiful spring weather. It's probably best enjoyed on the patio.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This straw-colored brew was incredibly effervescent. It had a white foamy head. It had a floral aroma.

Taste: It was peachy with a floral hop flavor. It was creamy but the bubbles made it light on the tongue. It was a honey-nectar flavor, then a woody dryness.

From the NB site:
This is an ale brewed with peach juice grains of paradise and dandelions greens blended with wood aged beer. Using dandelion greens to bitter a Belgian-style ale blossomed from our brewers collaborating with Red Rock Brewing. These being our sixth interpretation together since 2008, expect a wonderfully complex ale fermented with wild Belgian yeast and blended with just a touch of wood-aged beer. Bitterness imparted from dandelion greens and grains of paradise will have you blowing wishes for sips.
