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.

A - Hazy yellow color. Poured a 1 finger head with ok retention. Very little lacing.

S - sweet malts, grassy, floral. Pretty good, a little on the sweet side. Almost a belgian style yeast presence.

T - Similar to smell, Grassy and slightly sweet. Again reminds me of some belgian yeast.

Overall, not a bad beer, but not something I would seek out to buy again, nothing offensive, but nothing that really gives me a lasting impression. It is a good beer though and very balanced, and if offered I would drink it again without hesitation.
