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.

Nothing really unique tasting about this beer, no noteworthy taste of dandelion at all. If this was just labeled as a lightly hopped session ale my review may be higher.

sonnycheeba (4284) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with thick, creamy white head. Aroma is grassy and floral notes, oranges, cereal malts, and light citrus. Flavor is dry, bready malts, light fruit esters, faint hop bitterness, and some light spice; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

b3shine (6762) - Indiana, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks decent; a slightly hazy gold with thin white head that dissipates into lacing pretty quickly. Smells lightly floral. Tastes like it smells with a bit of acidulated malt and very light hops. Average on the palate with a slightly tart mouthfeel. Underwhelming.

Danyel (1395) - Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours yellow with white head. Smells a little floral- not like much though. Tastes very wheaty, creamy, bitter end. Weird. Not very good.

jmohno (1285) - Iowa, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Medium yellow,very carbonated-so much that you get half glass of head.Heavy streaming continuous bubbles. Aroma is bright with floral and citrus,slightly spicey almost belgiany. Taste is fairly clean light with same as aroma,bright floral,floral taste,citrusy clean,slight sweet caramel,slightly bready.Nice and will do for a session ale.Nothing bad but nothing great.

Pailhead (5747) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of lightly tart citrus, floral notes, honey, and a touch of bread. It pours a transparent gold with a one finger, slightly fizzy, white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a touch of sweet honey. The finish turns to light-moderate citrus hops, grapefruit, and light floral notes. Itís light bodied with lively/fizzy carbonation. Overall, it tastes like a lightly floral Pale Ale. Itís a decent lawn mower beer.

DYCSoccer17 (3499) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 1, 2013
22 ounce sample on tap at JFK airport. The aroma is a bit floral with some dusty estery notes. Some spicy hops are also present along with some light sweetness. Moderately hazy golden body with a medium bubbly white head present. Good lacing. Starts with light citrus rind flavors, before this becomes a little more tart in the middle. Finishes herbal, dry, and dusty. A little harsh in the finish. Not the most enjoyable stuff.

Panzuriel (1467) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Pistil Pours a golden slightly hazy with medium amount of small bubbles. Nose is faint hops and something hard to distinguish. Taste is malty, slightly sweet and a savory touch of something like french onion soup. Body is mildly lively. finishes clean. refreshing beer.
