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.

3.01/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a golden color with a one finger head that lingers. Lacing and lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass.

Smell: Sweet, grassy smell. Almost like the aroma of a mild summer day.

Taste: Tastes grassy, grainy, but has a slight sour taste to it. There’s a mild vegetable aftertaste. A unique flavor overall.

Mouthfeel: Actually pretty medium-bodied which surprised me. It finishes very smooth.

Overall: On first try I wasn’t sure I would like this beer, but after a couple more sips it grew on me and I found myself wanting to finish the beer. I think it’s the hint of the grassy/vegetable flavor that threw me off, with that little bit of additional sour taste, but it would probably be a really nice beer to enjoy with friends on the patio on a nice day.
