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.

12 ounce bottle from the summer sampler. Pours a hazy pale orange color with a thin white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of earthy, nutty, floral notes with some caramel. The taste is nutty and earthy with toasted malts and an herbal, almost tart finish. Medium bodied.

Not a fan of this beer. Itís made with dandelions... Thatís a weed last time I checked. Very cloudy with a lot of sediment to the point where I almost wanted to eat this beer with a fork.

vyvvy (4178) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 29, 2012
Pours hazy yellow with a small white patchy head. The aroma is very powdery and floral with pale malt, chalk and some fruitiness. Medium / light body thatís crisp with the light sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with weird herbal notes along with the aroma traits The finish is quite peppery. Decent beer.

Interesting beer, better than most of their summer beers. Poors a nice gold, with heavy suspension. (actually a good look for this beer) Light carbonation and easy to drink. pleasant aftertaste and well balanced. Very malty nose with acidic hint. taste is malty with a lot of floral notes. Finishing note is almost fruity and sour. Interesting and decent beer.

halfonit (1192) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - APR 25, 2012
Pours a clear light golden color. Aroma is of malts, wheat, citrus, and hops. Flavor is pretty much the same. This is a good summer brew for them I guess. Better than Wacko anyway. Iím still not sure about the whole dandelions thing, I mean, isnít that a weed! Anyways at least I can say that Iíve had a beer with dandelions in it.

This poured a clear yellow colorw ith a white head. Aroma was of light mint, grain, and not much else. Didn;t really taste the dandellion, at least i dont think, mainly just grainy plain bland golden ale.

slight ly floral smell with some grass. not much in the way of smells. appears intriguing. almost a green yellow with two finger white foam head on pour. touch of hops, some pilsneresque malt character. interesting session beer. seems to be a lager? huh. not bad, but not as crazy as it sounds, ends up being a sort of typical lager with more informed grassy notes in smell and flavor cause there might be a little grass in it.....
