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.

Poured into a lager glass from a 3/4 of a pint bottle. An open sniff of hops hints; a traditional gold cloudiness; an exquisite taste of spritz complexed. Dandy Lions, indeed.

Had a glass on tap at Alexandrias as part of a flight. Delicious, light, refreshing, simple

pottygok (454) - Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Aroma: Clean aroma, almost watery, with hints of cooked vegetables. Appearance: Cloudy pale yellow with minimal head. Taste: Medium sourness all the way through. Palate: Light body, slick texture, flat carbonation, long herbal finish. Overall: Drinkable, but the herbal taste overwhelms. Iím not impressed.

HIGHB4LL (475) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Wilburís. Appearance: finger white head, straw yellow, clear, good lacing. Aroma: dandelion, floral, light earthy yeast. Palate: light body, average carbonation, dry finish, thin texture. Taste: lightly sweet through front, ending is somewhat tannin bitter. Overall, like the taste, but thin on the aroma and nothing much to say for palate. Drinkable.

$1.67 bottle from Trader Joeís, Charlottesville. Pours light gold with a large white head. Smells of slightly sweet grasses. Tastes of light grasses. Thatís it. Bitter... bland... thin... watery.

milewide (1490) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2014
Slightly cloudy yellow. Very bland aroma and taste. Concept far exceeds actual brew!

Nephilium (1345) - Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2014
Faint sour aroma, pours a clear pale yellow with a full white head. Slight floral taste, with just a touch of tartness in the finish. There is a vegetal aftertaste that comes out at the end, which has a bite of bitterness to it. Not a bad beer, but thereís a lot more sours and summer beers Iíll reach for first.

Edmoe (239) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2014
Straw pour with good white head and good lacing. Aroma is light and yeasty, but not unpleasantly so. Flavor is light and crisp; slightly tart. Light body and clean finish. A pleasant summer beer.

TizzleJizzle (620) - Garland, Texas, USA - APR 10, 2014
Sampled from a bottle at the Bluebonnet Brew-off. Poured a boring clear yellow with a white head. Subtle taste of spruce, citrus, and pale malts. Medium carbonation, medium body. Meh...
