Default dandelion lambic

Would a dandelion lambic be good.

I'd never say "no", but I'd be cautious of overbittering the beer, as the greens can be pretty bitter. If you go for it, I'd advise young greens and not much of them, and be sure to tell us how it goes!

I got the idea from dandelion wine. I wanted to modify it for beer and thought a lambic may be nice.

Dandelion wine uses only the flower petals from dandelion flowers.

It's kind of a PITA to harvest because you don't want to get any greens in the wine including the green parts on the back of the flower. Of course for a beer this is probably less of an issue since some bitterness is expected.

Pick the dandelion flowers in the middle of a sunny day when they're most open if you are able.

Don't forget to frolic in the meadow as you pick dandelions.

It could be really interesting... I've brewed an ESB with the whole plant, (roots and everything) and that was 1-2 hours of weeding the lawn for 3 gallons.

You'd better have acres of dandelions available to you.

New Belgium made some kind of dandelion beer in their lips of faith series.

Fantome Pissenlit is brewed with dandelions and it's easily my favorite beer from them.

They dry out the flowers and then soak them in water for a couple days before adding the "dandelion tea" into the beer. Unfortunately, I don't know much more about the process, but I would assume the "tea" is added to the boil. No idea how much per gallon would really be used, either.
