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 (7638) - 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

Bottled. Poured medium golden with a lot of sediment suspended in there.. did not look good. The aroma picked up slightly sour floral and grassy notes, with some honey backing.. sweet and quite pleasant. The flavor found sweet honey, rolled oats, and a touch of bready malt at the core.. lightly sour floral and lesser orangey notes around.. finished with good balance between sweet malts and tangy botanicals. Lighter-bodied with more filling carbonation on the palate.. very smooth across the middle.. I thought the dandelions worked well in here.

355ml bottle. Guess it is a saison. Too much dry sulphury and minerally flavors. bland.

Ernest (6154) - 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.

arminjewell (6072) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of slight grain, grass, hints of flowery notes, an earthy tone, some biscuit and bread as well. Taste is a watery mix of wet grain, bread, biscuit, some slight flower notes, earth, spice, finishing dry.

DrSilverworm (6012) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2013
12oz bottle, from Party Source. Shared with caterwaul. Mostly clear dandelion yellow color. More hazy with particles in the last pour.. Thin white head. Little loose lace, but good head retention. Definitely a more floral nose. Bready malt base. Lighter body, smooth, lighter carbonation - easy drinking, light bitter, more sweet, some light orange-citrus zest. Nice, zesty, floral golden. Drinkable and refreshing.

drowland (5981) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2013
3/6/13. 12oz bottle from 5 Points. Hazy golden pour with a small khaki head that fades but laces a bit. Very mild aroma with soft wheat, mineral water, and a touch of herbal notes. Light citrus wheat flavor with barely a touch of acid and herbal. Is this supposed to be Pissenlit for the sheep or something? Marketing. Baaaa. Baaaaaaaaa. Garbage.

BVery (5969) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle from Heritage Liquors. Hazy light yellow pour with a very carbonated head. Light floral scents, and the very high carbonation masks almost all else. Not very good.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Flowery and a little earthy, with grass, lightly sweet malts, and the slightest acidity. Moderately dry finish. Pretty damn good.
