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.

750. Pours a light slightly hazy golden with small white head. Aroma is really nice floral spicy, some honey and herbal notes, orange light citrus. Flavor starts sweet with lots of floral notes, slowly giving way to the spice and northwestern hop character into a dry and lightly bitter finish. Medium body and sharp carbonation. Excellent beer

Tasted on 9/30/12 from a capped 750mL bottle picked up in Oregon by unclejedi, thanks to Jim. Pours clear orange with a very thick white head that slowly recedes to smooth, average lace. The nose is spicy saison yeast with some light bread malt, a green hoppy note that I recognize, and a somewhat herbal note that I don’t. The flavor is the same, nice and spicy saison yeast, plenty dry, and the herbal note with a nice touch of sourness on the back end and a hint of white peppercorn. The body is light with sparkling active carbonation and a long spicy yeast and lightly sour finish.

750mL thanks to brainlair. Pours cloudy bright orange, thicker off white head. Sheen retention, rockier. Nose is beautiful flowers, honey, chamomile. Similar to Stillwater Cellar Door and Southampton Cuvée des Fleurs. Taste is dry, thicker biscuit, very rich with chamomile, mild sweet cream butter, light lactic sourness. Palate is thick, refreshing, fresh biscuit with orange marmalade. Garden herb and cone hop bitterness to balance. Gorgeous stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
