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.

This poured a clear yellow colorw ith a white head. Aroma was of light mint, grain, and not much else. Didn;t really taste the dandellion, at least i dont think, mainly just grainy plain bland golden ale.

Interesting beer, better than most of their summer beers. Poors a nice gold, with heavy suspension. (actually a good look for this beer) Light carbonation and easy to drink. pleasant aftertaste and well balanced. Very malty nose with acidic hint. taste is malty with a lot of floral notes. Finishing note is almost fruity and sour. Interesting and decent beer.

Pours very turbid canary with splotchy white head and a lot of floaties. Nose is floral, spicy, and hopcitric. Tastes very dry, tannic, spicy, floral, with a watery palate and a finishing earthy flavor.

Pours a clear light golden color. Aroma is of malts, wheat, citrus, and hops. Flavor is pretty much the same. This is a good summer brew for them I guess. Better than Wacko anyway. Iím still not sure about the whole dandelions thing, I mean, isnít that a weed! Anyways at least I can say that Iíve had a beer with dandelions in it.

Not a fan of this beer. Itís made with dandelions... Thatís a weed last time I checked. Very cloudy with a lot of sediment to the point where I almost wanted to eat this beer with a fork.

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.

Davhgbrew (925) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Floral aroma, bright golden appearance. The hop flavor reminds me slightly of Sierra Nevada pale ale. Iíve had other summer beers that taste similar to this and I was not a fan. I would pass on having another one of these.

Bottle from stevencon! Pours a slightly hazy yellow with little to no lacing or head. Aroma of faint wheat, taste is floral and slight lemon. Wow, magic hat fails again.

12 oz bottle from Traderís Joe. Pours golden with short-lived white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of piney hops and pale malt. Body is medium and tangy. Taste is of piney hops, biscuit malt and some weird staff. Finish is long and leafy. This brew is strange.
