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.

Iíd say itís pretty good looking. Clear and lightly tan with a big fizzy white head that surprisingly had really good staying power and left good lacing. Rising bubbles are plentiful. Aroma is lightly grassy, a little spicy, and a bit floral. Flavors that come through are reminiscent of a spring field, with floral, grassy, herbal, with a light hops bite. Body is very light, well carbonated and a bit fizzy, easy to drink with a slightly grassy aftertaste. Overall itís a nice summery type beer, which ironically, Iím drinking in the dead of February. Nothing spectacular but worth a try if thatís what youíre looking for. Great for Saturday yard work.

What in tarnation is this dandelion ale? Served up first in January, which is a bit too early to be thinking of spring, grass, and flowers, which this beer didnít have much flavor of anyway. Flat, boring.

A light goldy, with a simple crisp head. On a hot day, as it was when I was drinking, this is a very nice crisp beer. The various herbs & spices make for a beer with some complexity while remaining light and clean overall.

Very clear yellow color but it gets an extra point for particulates. Very thin on the palate aver carbonation. Not much in terms of aroma. Great for a light summer beer but thatís about it.

Cloudy pale hue, white creamy diminishing head, lots of sentiment that dissipates cloudy to clear, smells flowery and perfumey, juicy and sweet, minimal hops, tad of honey, interesting and refreshing. Would drink not buy

TomTron (386) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of citrus zest, lemon, and light malts. Flavors of citrus, lemon, acidity and a rather dry, almost puckering finish. Honestly not as bad as expected, but still nothing I really cared for.

Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Pours light organish yellow with white head. Smells of floral, grass, and piney. Mild, mellow bitterness, with very slight bitter finish. For what it is, I really dont have any complaints. Great if your out in the yard in the summer. Not bad.

This is a really unique beer in every way. From the great floral hops aroma, to the really light and tasty flavor, this is a solid beer.
