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.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 10, 2013
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.

Cybercat (3378) - Georgia, USA - MAR 10, 2013
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 (3295) - 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.

damzz (267) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 8, 2013
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.

EtTuCthulhu (1073) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAR 6, 2013
The color of this beer is yellowish golden with nearly no head, but the sediment, once poured inside a glass looks and moves like smoke inside rays of sunshine. The aroma is hoppy and floral, and the taste is mildly sweet, slightly sour, and slightly bitter. The palate is nice, for the combination of the medium-light body, thin texture, soft carbonation, and slightly bitter finish.

drowland (6082) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2013
3/6/13. 12oz bottle from 5 Points. Hazy golden pour with a small khaki head that fades but laces a bit. Very mild aroma with soft wheat, mineral water, and a touch of herbal notes. Light citrus wheat flavor with barely a touch of acid and herbal. Is this supposed to be Pissenlit for the sheep or something? Marketing. Baaaa. Baaaaaaaaa. Garbage.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold body with a fizzy white head that had pretty good retention for a Magic Hat beer. The nose is light, fruity, and floral with a scent that does actually remind me of dandelion wine actually. The flavor is a bit overly thin and weak though, actually pretty downright watery. There’s a slight floral hoppiness and a minimal bitterness on the back end, along with a light perfume like quality. Thin bodied and very fizzy with a vegetal finish. Can’t say too many good things about this one.

pineypower (2523) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle from Spirits Manahawkin. Pours a cloudy golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of an okay pils mixed with lemon scented floor cleaner and a bad Yankee candle. Taste is equally as bad, cereal grains, sweet malts, artificial lemon and flower notes with a mild bitterness. This is a mess.

BroSpud (1707) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAR 4, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a huge white head and tons of carbonation. Pretty interesting brew actually. I can imagine this would be very refreshing on a hot summer day. It’s pretty refreshing on a cold March day for that matter. Hints of lemon and tastes exactly like I would imagine dandelion tastes like but not sure if I have ever had dandelion before so it could just be all in my head. Not the usual beer I would reach for but it ain’t bad.
