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.

Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is floral and fruity with some biscuity malt. Flavor is light malt with some grassyness and a bit of honey. FInish is clean and does not leave much after the swallow. It a decent overall low alcohol beer.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow color. Thick head that fades. Tastes of lemon, pine and wheat. Almost like a wheat iPa in my opinion. Not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Patrickctenchi (6423) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Pours nearly clear gold with a puffy white head. Scent is floral.....it truly does showcase the dandelion. Taste is na odd, grassy, floral, herbal, malty......dullness. ....strange bittering. Quite....unusual.

kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Hazy golden with a pure white head. Bitter floral aroma. Can definitely smell the dandelion petal. Absolutely refreshing with a light, and slightly dry floral grass flavor with a refreshing bite and bitter finish. Perfect on the backporch of a brisk Texas Sunday evening.

smells like a noble hop green bottle lager. look is interesting. has lots of floaties in there. taste initially is a little bitter, but yes it is that dandelion kind of bitter. Yes, a little interesting and but not quite as unique as I thought it would be. Not sure if there is any sourness in there as stated in the descriptions.

12oz bottle poured into Newcastle pint glass. The smell of lager yeast and slight grass with strong notes of malt. A smoky almost sulphuric hint. It plus a nice golden hazy color with a frothy white head. Lots of lacing and a small ring of bubbles exists through the whole drink. Flavored of pilsner malts and lager yeast dominate. I get no acidity till the very end and its so diluted it almost doesn’t exist, not enough flavor or complexity for a beer of this "style". I was really hoping for more flavor besides the malt and yeast. The body is light with a bit of an acidic burn near the finish but the actual finish is watery and dry enough to match the acidity it feels they want. It doesn’t leave you longing for another sip and that’s just another misstep I feel in the making of this beer. I rarely drink magic hat and this is why, subpar homies subpar. This is inspiration to actually brew a dandelion ale that actually kicks ass and I will.

Very smooth. Different, somewhat exotic smell. Fairly tasty. Doesn’t knock your socks off, but good for a spring/summer night.
