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.

Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, wort), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a note of butter. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Raw malt and diacetyl in the nose, thin and watery in the mouth with a dirty aftertaste...what more could you want? Embarrassing.

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 didn’t have much flavor of anyway. Flat, boring.

Do you know what this smells like? Cat urine, cauliflower, and apple cider vinegar. Really doesn’t taste much better.

A pilsner style beer with the slight fruity taste you get from Magic Hat. Nothing special.

12oz bottle pours yellow with a thin white head. Aromas are faint some slight floral notes and citrus with some slight bread. Flavor is watery and very weak but on the bitter side. Body is thin and watery with a weak finish

I'm not getting the fuss here. Am I missing something? Aside from a barely there sour note, I'm not really getting any dandelion here. Otherwise it's ok.. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours slightly cloudy with clean white head. Very little aroma but what there is smells like weeds. Flavor is light is floral in a "tastes like grass clippings" kind of way.

This is definitely not the summer beer for me. With an aroma of cut grass and cooked cabbage, Pistil starts things on the wrong note. The flavor is hard to take as well. Watery, highly carbonated and twinged with strong tartness from acidulated malt, this beer is quenching, but just tastes bad. Interestingly enough, the grassy aftertaste is pretty decent. Pours hazy straw yellow with a small white head and very active bubbles.

355ml bottle. Guess it is a saison. Too much dry sulphury and minerally flavors. bland.
