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.

Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of citrus zest, lemon, and light malts. Flavors of citrus, lemon, acidity and a rather dry, almost puckering finish. Honestly not as bad as expected, but still nothing I really cared for.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4895) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy bright golden color with lots of tiny floaters and a medium sized foamy orange white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet, tangy and a bit floral with notes of honey and chamomile. The flavor was way too dry, bitter and acidic with light perfume and citrus. Medium length bitter and dry finish with lingering citrus and perfume. Light body. Eh. The aroma had promise but the flavor really failed to deliver.

Particulate laden murky dandelion yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is floral and vegetal with pale and mildly sweet malts. Taste is sweet, vegetal and weedy with some malt beneath and a semi-dry finish.

Bottle. Good grief! This pours a clear looking gold until I look closely and realize there are a thousand billion unidentified floaty objects swirling around in the body under the finger or so of soapy looking head. Aromas are thick with skunky euro lager hops and a little lemongrass or something herbal. Favor is a poor mix of honey and sweet underatennuated malt with a little bit of a herbal edge to it that might, if I were feeling generous, border on dandelion. It is classically Magic Hat in that it is a clever idea that is somewhat shoddily executed and falls short of the target. It’s fine as a summer sipper type beer that is lower in ABV, but to market it as anything more than that is misleading, to say the least.

Very interesting beer. Aroma and flavor is of fresh herbs, citrus, lemongrass. No bitterness. Herbal aroma and flavor strengthens as beer warms up. Very good for summer.

Bottle. Pours gold. Nose and taste of flaked oat, dandelion, light malt and even lighter lacto sourness. Light body.

Aroma is malts, spices and a mild hint of sourness/tartness. The flavor is malts, lemons, mild spiciness and a mildly sour finish.
