the thing I am getting from this beer is a real sharp bite. it really punch you hard then doesn’t stop. the very first sip is a real bitter with some definite floral taste and a bit of honey. slightly spicy with a a golden straw color for effect.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is hoppy with grassy, soapy, and citrusy hops and it has a yeasty bread element. The appearance is hazy gold with a large head. The taste is bitter and pretty much just hops. The palate is average. Overall it’s not what I expected it’s a bitter IPA type of beer but it’s not bad.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent, floral saison flavors, malts are a bit too strong and overwhelming probably in as a fail safe

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy gold with about a finger of white head. Aroma of flowery and grassy hops. Taste is light bitter. Flowery and pine hops. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation but not much of a finish. Overall, not bad. Nothing I would seek out, but a decent lawnmower beer.

Pours deep gold into a Sam glass. White head with good retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Pale malt and summer flower aromas. Sharp and slightly tart upfront turning to caramel before the lasting earthy bitter finish.

Poured up a hazy gold with a decent white head that faded out to a lace. Smells of grain with a bit of floral. Tastes of grain and citris. Will admit this is the first brew I have had with dandelion so I will have to also say it is different than most other brews. Not something I would just go out for but it is not too bad. Then again I am not a much of a fan of Magic Hat so it does make me wonder what another brewer could do with dandelions.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Unique sour (pleasant) taste with delicate hops and malty finish. Nice balance with no off-flavors. Great with fish or chicken.

I can see how some may not like Pistil, but I found it different and refreshing. Pistil has the quality of a fine lager with mild citrus flavors. Slight floral aroma. A nice Summer beer.
