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.

Bottle poured a clear yellow with a small lingering white head. Aromas of bread, straw, light citrus and light yeast. palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, citrus and a hint of straw with a smooth finish. Not bad just boring, I’d rather drink a well made Pale Ale.

adnielsen (9108) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a somewhat hazy, golden appearance with a cream colored head. Very floral, big herbal, grainy straw, a bit earthy aroma. Flavor is just a bit tart with just a touch of fruit and plenty of grainy malts and oats. Floral, a bit spicy, and pretty tasty. I’m tempted to pick up a sixer of this, which is a great complement from a fucken ticker.
