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.

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.

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

Tangy and citrussy, with some light biscuit notes. Pours a bright orange gold with a full white head. I didn’t love the aftertaste.

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.

Dont think this is as bad as other reviews suggest - at least hats off for trying something different - A bit watery but reminds you spring is just around the corner. Reminded me of a mix between a pale and a wheat without the funky coriander & orange flavors of some spring seasonals.

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

craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Poured a cloudy golden color with a big and fluffy white head. Aroma is apple, grass, cereal, flora, and herbs. Taste is kind of grassy and earthy with a slightly sweet and sour twang to it. Only thing I do not really like is the finish which is kind of odd and lingers.

Bottle into a tulip glass. Pour is yellow gold. Aroma is bitter. Taste is very crisp and light. Finish is bitter and flat. Great ale.

Evolutionary (298) - Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2012
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
