Notes/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.

A dandelion beer is a fine choice for a dandy gentleman such as myself.

Pours hazy, like a pale wheat. Smells like a cross between a lightly hoped wheat and a Zwickle--very big floral nodes against a background of saltines and grain. A nice, refreshing, and quite spritely smell.

Tastes good, but not quite as good as it smells. The grassy floral zip is a bit muted, replaced by nodes of dried and pressed flowers that are more like potpourri than fresh dandelions. Starts out flowery, gets sweet and lightly wheaty, ends dry. Plenty of variegation with no off nodes.

Magic Hat's flagships are almost all very good. I'll never understand the animosity these guys generate.
