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.

Partly cloudy, yellow bodied beer with good carbonation and a decent white head. Bready, grassy aroma; rather soft and subdued. Grainy, bitter flavor; yeasty. Medium-bodied; dry finish.

A weird little beer. It's not bad yet I can't quite figure this one out. I suppose the dandelions have something to do with this beer, but it's really difficult to figure out what they add to it. Drinkable but not memorable.
