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.

jercraigs (8289) - 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 (1650) - 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 (4510) - 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

fluffy (1894) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2013
I'm not getting the fuss here. Am I missing something? Aside from a barely there sour note, I'm not really getting any dandelion here. Otherwise it's ok.. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Light hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

edgallow (2582) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2013
12 oz bottle pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts, floral and bread. Taste is sweet, floral and a hint of citrus and yeast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 26, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, wort), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a note of butter. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Raw malt and diacetyl in the nose, thin and watery in the mouth with a dirty aftertaste...what more could you want? Embarrassing.
