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.

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

Not much of an aroma other than a generalized, light fruitiness. A bit of carbonation. Light yellow color. Taste is of mild dandelion, with hops and decent bitterness. Not my favorite, but a decent and crisp unique beer nonetheless.

From the Summer Scene pack. Cloudy orange pour - actually, more "floating particles" than cloud. Medium fluffy white head. Aroma is definitely floral, with a swampy earth background and some malty and hops hanging around. Flavor is hard to place - definitely a bitterness coming from something other than the hops, along with a dry mint taste and some grapefruit. a little malty at the end, sort of hurts the effect. This is pretty interesting, just doesn’t come together.

Bottle from giant eagle. Light hop smell and turbid pour. Crisp clean taste and sharp initial mouthfeel followed by smooth floral aftertaste. Not too spiced. Overall a decent warm weather beer. ---Rated via my mouth

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2013 Pours a hazy yellow with a frothy white head that sticks around for awhile. The smell is sweet, malty, with some yeast and floral notes. It has a nice sweet background that is harder to describe but like the smell of a nice summer night. Taste is not nearly as sweet as the smell would have indicated, the flavor starts malty but moves into a unique bitterness, that does not taste like hops. I can only assume this is from the dandelion as this is my first dandelion beer. The bitter sticks around through the aftertaste, and gets stronger, almost to the point of a lip smacking bitter. The mouthfeel is nice a crisp light beer, smooth and easy to drink. If the bottle didn’t display the dandelion I would have had a hard time guessing that one. No overpowering flavors, a nice enjoyable beer, overall it is well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice nose of honey and flowers that helps to offset the ugly appearance (I wondered if I poured into a dirty glass!). Pleasant, but not overly complex. Enjoyable summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Edmoe (239) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2014
Straw pour with good white head and good lacing. Aroma is light and yeasty, but not unpleasantly so. Flavor is light and crisp; slightly tart. Light body and clean finish. A pleasant summer beer.

Poured up a hazy gold with a decent white head that faded out to a lace. Smells of grain with a bit of floral. Tastes of grain and citris. Will admit this is the first brew I have had with dandelion so I will have to also say it is different than most other brews. Not something I would just go out for but it is not too bad. Then again I am not a much of a fan of Magic Hat so it does make me wonder what another brewer could do with dandelions.

Pours medium yellow with a white lingering head and lacing. Nose is light resinous hops. Palate is light medium with a vegetal - not bad - taste. Very little bitterness.

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2013
12 oz. Mostly clear orange-amber body with a smattering of bubbles. Mild nose of citrus and toast. Taste is a bit bolder with crisp citrus and fresh cut grass bolstered by some honey toasted cereal. Light body is crisp and tingly with carbonation and hops. Nice change-up for a summer session pale ale. -Fish!
