COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flora Rustica is a Northwest-style saison that use yarrow and calendula flowers along with a handful of our favorite Oregon grown hops to produce a strongly aromatic beer. It’s very sparking and dry and makes an excellent aperitif as well as an interesting companion for certain foods like herbaceous and bitter salads or strong and fatty fish like mackerel.

BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Pours a brightly hazed golden hue with a white head that lasted through. Tree bark, lemon lime zest, and an earthy floral aroma. First thing I noticed in flavor was the juicy hops and the dry finish. The complex flavors changed throughout the bottle. What a fantastic Saison.

Bottle shared by Hoppypocket, thanks! Pours a hazy golden with a small white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is fresh, floral and full of belgian yeast. Taste is fruity with a weird bitterness (did they bitter this with the dandelions or some other herbs that are in there?). Higher carbonation level, prickly even. A bit too much for me I think. Overall the beer was good/great but I believe the carbonation killed it a little for me.

Bottle (750 ml). Shared by hoppypocket, thanks! Hazy straw color with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma of farmhouse yeast along with spicy and floral notes. Taste is yeasty with some spiciness/peppery notes and interesting floral presence. Light to medium body. Lively carbonation. Slightly dry. Good spicy Saison. This bottle was 1+ year old, I would be curious to try it fresh.

750 ml bottle shared with Tom and chums. Pours an opaque yellowish orange with a resilient white head. Aroma is floral, oldish, grains, grapefruits. Flavor is peach, pear, fresh cereals. Finish is floral,oldish, barn, with a good, hoppy punch (grapefruit). Lingering dusty-oldish flavor from what I believe to be the yeast. Light body, medium to strong carbonation. Very good saison.

750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color with a large white head.A light herbal and floral nose, big lemons. The flavor is similar with honey, dry flowers, vanilla, more lemons and a bit of lavender. Really nice and despite the unusual dominating herbal/floral elements, it is really drinkable.

Primarily herbal and vegetative notes, overall a light bodied herbal ale that is incredibly flavorful, finishes with a well balanced light hop.
