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.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated hazy dark yellow orange colored body and an excellent lacing. The aroma was floral musty and malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish fruity aftertaste. The complex flavor contained notes of softly acidic wheat orange peel mildly vinous mild hops herbal fruity and malt. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again. Makes me buro from the carbonation.

12 oz bottle pours clear and yellow with a frothy white head. The aroma is lemons, bready malts, yeast and spices. Light body with a crisp feel. Flavor is toasted grains and malts, lemons, grass, pepper. Not bad.

Post 60’s hippie shoe gaze label worth the price. Pours golden hash yellow. Not my fav but worth the trip

Poured a cloudy golden color with a big and fluffy white head. Aroma is apple, grass, cereal, flora, and herbs. Taste is kind of grassy and earthy with a slightly sweet and sour twang to it. Only thing I do not really like is the finish which is kind of odd and lingers.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a hazy, light gold with a small but lasting white head. The nose is unusual with a bright floral note paired with a little lemon and wet paper. Light and dry on the tongue, it has a light floral bitterness, some grass, a little lemon, and a slight sweetness. Light to medium dry finish. Interesting. Not a bad summer sipper.

Comes out of the growler a clear solar yellow with a fluffy white head - not spectacular, but never judge a book by its cover, or a beer by its appearance. Malty aroma has subtle fruity and floral notes. Flavor has a malty core with fruity, floral and hoppy notes, not spectacular but still refreshing. A ray of sunshine on a chilly winter day. Fizz and body are about average, and finish has subtle fruity and hoppy notes. Overall, OK - good as an accompaniment to a meal, or good conversation, or a game on TV.

First of all, I think the label looks great. Definitely earns a couple of extra appearance points there. The beer itself looks nice. Nice light yellow gold color with a really good foam. Smells of light malts and dandelion. Tastes surprisingly good. Nice balance. The dandelion is done lightly so as to not take over the beer. Well done. Apparently I like it more than most.

AirForceHops (2990) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 8, 2013
12 oz. bottle from The Beer Store. English pint shows me a hazy piss gold color with lots of particles floating tin the liquid. Nose is honey and pale malt. Taste is strictly pale malt with a very subtle flower essence. Light body with a short abrupt finish.

Pours medium yellow with a white lingering head and lacing. Nose is light resinous hops. Palate is light medium with a vegetal - not bad - taste. Very little bitterness.
