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.

12 oz bottle pours a hazy light golden color with medium white head. Aroma has lots of weeds, wildflowers, yeast,some lemon, and a only a hint of malts. Taste is sour with a slightly bitter finish and only fleeting sweetness in the middle. Body is thin. Should be more drinkable than this. It would do better with more malts for balance and more flavor in general. I will not try this again.

Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold body with a fizzy white head that had pretty good retention for a Magic Hat beer. The nose is light, fruity, and floral with a scent that does actually remind me of dandelion wine actually. The flavor is a bit overly thin and weak though, actually pretty downright watery. There’s a slight floral hoppiness and a minimal bitterness on the back end, along with a light perfume like quality. Thin bodied and very fizzy with a vegetal finish. Can’t say too many good things about this one.

Thin, watery, with a hint of malt, earthiness, and a vegetable quality. Very light. Disappointing overall.

Aroma of floral hops. Light head, no lacing visible. Slightly acidic taste with light hop bitterness. Like most Magic Hat products, I was wanting for more flavor and substance. Light on flavor, but drinkable

Cloudy yellow/gold with frothy white head; a good amount of lacing. Smells fairly yeasty; also has an aroma of hay but it’s pretty weak. Flavor is similar to a grassy pale ale. Not very bitter overall, but has a bitter finish. Lively carbonation and light body.

Location: 12 oz bottle from Giannone, 5/31/13

Aroma: The aroma is on the lighter side, with bread, grass, a little straw, and light herbal notes
Appearance: It pours a clear gold-orange color with a large, quick fading, foamy white head
Flavor: The taste is similar to the nose, it is light sweet and light bitter, malty and herbal
Palate: The body is fairly light, and it has so much carbonation that it hurts the drinkability
Overall Impression: This wasn’t a favorite for me. The nose and taste are both fine, but nothing special, but where this one falls apart is that it is completely over carbonated. Its not great otherwise, but with a little more drinkability it could have been better.
