COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Farmstead wheat ale aged in oak barrels with satsuma mandarins. Flora is the wine barrel aged version of Florence (1915-1967), our grandfather’s sister as well as the name of our wheat farmhouse ale. In her honor, amidst the fleeting days of summer, we chose to fill French oak wine barrels with Florence and store it away. After many months, a Biere de Table emerged. At the end of a summer day, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Florence.

375 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a fluffy white head. The aroma is dry with a moderate funk, yeast, vinous white wine, orange citrus, some acidity, pepper and earthy tones. The flavor has dry grass, orange citrus, white wine, yeast, pepper, and very tasty. Would like to have this again sometime, solid.

Hazy golden dark yellow pour with no head. Really nice nose. Flora plus some funky tart citrus. Dusty Brett and lemon zest lead to a musty floral end. Neat. Low carb and lemony tartness to start. Palate is malty sweet to a tart end. Taste is a fantastic version of flora. Musty, sweet, floral, lemony Flora-y goodness. Bretts are strong in this one. A fantastic version of Flora a.

Clownoisseur (364) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle pours a deep golden color, small off-white head, nice spotty lacing. Aromas of wheat, wet oak, light citrus, must and hay. Taste is much lighter than expected. Light hints of the mandarin oranges do permeate...minimal tartness....more of a wine barrel inflection over a some light funk. All very delicate and subtle. Finishes a bit thin, but has a nice semi-dry wine character. Tasty stuff.
