COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stop and smell the petals. Pistil is a summer beer unlike any other, brewed with a combination of dandelion petals, Pale and Acidulated malts, flaked oats, and Apollo and Northern Brewer hops that results in a one-of-a-kind beer with a slightly sour acidity and a smooth malt body. Perfect for taking down deep thirst.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2013 Pours a hazy yellow with a frothy white head that sticks around for awhile. The smell is sweet, malty, with some yeast and floral notes. It has a nice sweet background that is harder to describe but like the smell of a nice summer night. Taste is not nearly as sweet as the smell would have indicated, the flavor starts malty but moves into a unique bitterness, that does not taste like hops. I can only assume this is from the dandelion as this is my first dandelion beer. The bitter sticks around through the aftertaste, and gets stronger, almost to the point of a lip smacking bitter. The mouthfeel is nice a crisp light beer, smooth and easy to drink. If the bottle didn’t display the dandelion I would have had a hard time guessing that one. No overpowering flavors, a nice enjoyable beer, overall it is well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with minimal white head. Overall some garden notes of dirt and flowers with a moderate level of diacetyl. Some flower sweetness and some faint presence of lactic acid. Light body. Diacetyl really gets in the way here.

Tastes ok, not very impressive, short sweet taste. Not much too it. Interesting attempt though. Some floral sweetness that is a little bit unique.

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a somewhat hazy, golden appearance with a cream colored head. Very floral, big herbal, grainy straw, a bit earthy aroma. Flavor is just a bit tart with just a touch of fruit and plenty of grainy malts and oats. Floral, a bit spicy, and pretty tasty. I’m tempted to pick up a sixer of this, which is a great complement from a fucken ticker.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of slight grain, grass, hints of flowery notes, an earthy tone, some biscuit and bread as well. Taste is a watery mix of wet grain, bread, biscuit, some slight flower notes, earth, spice, finishing dry.

ElGaucho (2206) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2013

Mostly clear gold, with a thick, frothy, well-sustained lace - nose of clean, pale maltiness, light tartness, subtle herbal notes, and the faintest hint of the dandelion - light bodied - nice, soft, frothy carbonation in the mouth - very clean, with no obvious flaws - lightly tart/acidic and floral up front - lightly bitter middle, with the dandelion mildly evident - mild sweetness pops up momentarily before a crisp, lightly tart, quenching finish - quite refreshing, and a nice surprise from Magic Hat.
