2 Crows says the beer was "Brewed with Pilsner malt, spelt, wheat, and oats, and hopped lightly with Calypso and Bramling Cross. Soured with a mixture of lactobacillus cultures, and fermented in gin barrels with a blend of saccharomyces and brettanomyces yeast. After conditioning in barrel for several months, the beer was transferred to stainless where it was further conditioned on the burnt zest of lemons, oranges, limes, and grapefruit. Finally, the beer was bottle conditioned with champagne yeast for a lively carbonation."
Dandy is limited quantity but there is no bottle limit and will be available on Saturday July 7th at the brewery as well Bishops Cellar said they were bringing a few in.
Tasting notes are "Bright, tart, lightly funky, with juniper, citrus, oaky tannins, a subtle burnt/smoky character and a firm minerality" and it is  5.1% ABV.
