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.

I bought this because I thought the bottle looked cool and the idea of a dandelion beer was intriguing. I did like the finish -- the aftertaste was balanced.

Unfortunately, I found the overall taste to be like licking dandelion milk off a stem, which wasn't thrilling. I don't think I would buy it again.
