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.

Cloudy yellow/gold with frothy white head; a good amount of lacing. Smells fairly yeasty; also has an aroma of hay but it’s pretty weak. Flavor is similar to a grassy pale ale. Not very bitter overall, but has a bitter finish. Lively carbonation and light body.

Pours golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet, bready malt with some floral hoppy notes. Flavor is grainy, grassy, wheat like tartness.

Westmeister (1750) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Draft. Pours a hazy light gold with decent white head. Big floral (dandelion perhaps), grains, earthy. If I didn’t know that this was brewed with dandelions before drinking I am certain that I would not of said that it tasted like dandelions. I would have said weird floral thing. Nonetheless, I knew prior to drinking and it tasted like weird floral dandelions with some spiceness. Not bad, refreshing, but not something I would search out again and buy.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2013 12 Oz bottle poured into a pint, orange color, big fluffy long lasting head. Dont know why this beer isn?t rated higher. It is a delicious beer for the style. A go to if you need a session beer or a thirst quencher after yardwork

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2013
2013-04-29. Crisp yellow body, small white head. Modest bitterness, light pale malt, and light notes of what I might or might not identify as dandelion if I didn’t know what it was. Light lemon touches. Smooth average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Quaffable, light overall but just enough flavour to be kind of enjoyable. Sampled at the brewery

P: Cloudy golden apricot appearance with bubbly carbonation and a airy off white head. S: Seems odd but smells like diluted Victoria’s Secret Love Spell body spray...my wife wears it that’s how I know. T/M: Honey suckles, lots if floral flavor, pale malt, salt and herbed tea. Faint peach and Bartlett pears hindered in the bitter floral base. There is a touch of metallic towards the end of the swallow. Nice subtly acidic mouthfeel with bubbly prickliness. O: A nice floral ale that really brings the floral to play. I really like this but probably not one I would seek out.

Block (1400) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is sweet and mostly of apples. Flavor is also sweet, a little too sweet. More apple flavor without a great hop balance.

dmac (4007) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2013
12oz bottle from Crossroads. Poured a hazy light nectar gold body with a fuller fluffy bright white head. Aroma was bland, mostly dusty grains and for some reason smokey bread. Body is actually very pleasant, fuller mouthfeel with average carbonation and an almost creamy feel overall. Flavor is a bit more bolstered up than the aroma but that ain’t ssaying much. All grains with a touch of honey topped bread. Drinkable after a day of errands and yard work, If I had another beer before this one I most likely would have scored it lower.

Light amber color, poured from 12oz bottle. Dandelion is noticed, but is not obnoxious.

Smell is of a very srong IPA... However the tase is well short of an IPA. Not Bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
