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.

ROGUE (2096) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 5, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a straw yellow color with a small fizzy head. Aroma is on the mild side, with some grass and some light bready notes. The taste gives off a big sweetness in the beginning that fades into a gentle bitter finish. Light crisp and high carbonation.

Nuffield (3668) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 23, 2013
I started drinking this on its own and then used it as an antidote to a batch of my neighbor’s homemade salsa. Lovely appearance thanks to the haziness on the yellow, orange-tinted body. Grassy, vegetal, slightly citric aroma (grapefruit if anything). Flavor seemed a bit light and lacking a sustained finish. Some paper mulch, and more of a German style of hopping than the Belgian saison I was hoping to find. Progressively more disappointing as I drank it. Who really thinks of dandelions as an appealing flavor concept anyway? Bottle.

Bricks (590) - Delaware, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Golden honey color with a ton of sediment. Smells of malty hops.. balanced. Taste is balanced as well, very nicely. Smooth, fairly neutral.

glennmastrange (2241) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle. Moderate straw and dried grass for the malt and hops, earth for the yeast, with cardboard and green leaves in the background. Head is huge, frothy turning rocky, white, with good lacing and is fully lasting Color is clear at first but hazy at the end of the pour, light yellow/amber. Flavor start lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and faintly bitter. Palate is light to medium, between watery and dry, with a fizzy carbonation. Kind of an average pale ale with a bit of uniqueness to it.

Caterwaul (51) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2013
s/o to Dr.Silverworm for the share. Golden yellow body with a white head. About 1cm. Recedes quickly into a ring. agitation restores it to about calf a cm. Smells sweet and flowery. Orange. Sweet citrus. Tastes very... insubstantial. Like the nose, but toned down. Flowery but a little bitter, too. warms up and comes better into the flavors in the nose but doesn’t do anything terribly exciting or unexpected. Mouthfeel is light-medium thickness. Tingly. In a weird way.

foyle (234) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: pours a healthy 2" frothy white head. Hazy golden color with significant carbonation bubbles. Mild lacing. Aroma: smell is grassy, tart, and floral. Mouthfeel: fairly light and frothy with a somewhat dry finish. Flavor: unusual is the best word I can come up. A combination of floral hops with an acidic quality similar to a soft drink. There is also a grassy flavor and a lemony tartness.

UncleKorm (788) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle poured a clear yellow hue w/ a huge white rocky head. Mild aromas of hay and yellow squash. Initial flavor is a faint sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are hay, squash, and a light hop resin. Light bodied, watery texture, soft carbonation, and a light astringent feel in the finish.
