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.

First of all, I think the label looks great. Definitely earns a couple of extra appearance points there. The beer itself looks nice. Nice light yellow gold color with a really good foam. Smells of light malts and dandelion. Tastes surprisingly good. Nice balance. The dandelion is done lightly so as to not take over the beer. Well done. Apparently I like it more than most.

Pours a dark amber color. Aromas of caramel malts and a touch of hops. Flavor is nice and malty with a subtle hop finish.

12oz bottle-white-hazy pale yellow. A-floral, some wheat/lt malt. T-floral/slight lemon hops, some wheat/lt malt. Interesting, kinda grows on me.

Hazy yellow. Some small floating chunkies. Really looks and tastes a bit like you’d expect an American wheat. Slight astringency in the finish.

Light colored beer and fresh taste. This is a little headed beer and it goes down very easy.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange copper with large frothy off white head. The aroma is a strong dandelion and honey. Thin mouth with strong floral flavor and honey, light citrus, decent.

hotstuff (4874) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Rated on 03-14-2013. This bottled beer has a large foamy white head that mostly diminishes, hazy pale yellow body, slow rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is citrus, floral, spicy and malt. The flavor is citrus, herbal, spicy, and malt. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, the flavor of this beer is not my thing and it is a beer that I will not drink again.

Very mild ale. No hops. No malt. Pleasant, inoffensive flavor. Floral aroma.

When I was a kid, the neighborhood Lithuanians would pick dandelions in Marquette Park and make a wine from them. As an older kid, I tried it... and liked it. Still do.
This beer, ostensibly brewed with dandelions, lacks character. Oh, it looks dandy (and I’m not lyin’), a hazy pale yellow body toppede by a creamy head, but it fizzles out after that. The aroma is faint and floral, but I couldn’t swear that the scents were those of the ubiquitious weed that filled the family lawn every year. The flavor is mild, quietly sweet white bread with a touch of grassy/floral bitterness. The rating is middling, reflecting memories more than appreciation.

From backlog. Bottle. Pours a clear light yellow color with almost no head. Aroma is floral, pale malt, and some skunkiness. Taste is flowers and sour fruit. Seems stale. Not good stuff at all.

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.
