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.

Poured out of a 12oz bottle into a tulip.

A: Pours a clear amber color with a flimsy white head that receded pretty quickly. Minimal lacing.

S: Malty with a hint of mint, citrus and wet grass on the nose. There is a floral aroma blending into the nose, perhaps the dandelion, but not clear. The smell is overall subdued.

T: Malty flavors layered with mint, grasses, citrus and floral (dandelion?) notes. The hop bite in the finish is minimal. Finishes sour, with no detectable aftertaste.

M: Watery. Light mouthfeel with high carbonation. Smooth, but watery.

O: Not a standout. Seemed interesting but really was not. Was not bad, but for something so unique on the label, the beer just didn't really deliver.

Bottle poured into pint glass

Nice white foam head with good lacings. Tiny carbonation in translucent golden yellow liquid.

Aroma is sour and almost skunky.

Light, watery, sour, some carbonation.

I do not like green eggs and ham, I do like them here, I do like them there. I do not like this beer.
