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.

Presumably Vintage 2012 Nice turbid amber with a solid 2-3 fingers of fluff. Smells spicy, some dandelion, some grain, yeast, a bit of malt and floral character. flavor is funky, water, some grain, some biscuit and a little bit of bitterness. Really empty body with moderate on hi carb. Very surprised how thin this feels. It’s an okay beer, but not nearly the caliber I expect from this brewery.

Bottle at our Thursday mini-tasting. Pours cloudy light amber with a medium white head, creamy with nice lacing. Aroma is floral, honey, herbal. Flavor is the same with little sweetness or bitterness, but a strong floral/herbal almost perfume sense. Finish is dry. Light body, bubbly carbonation. I enjoyed this one.

Hazy golden color, lots off foam, good lacing. Very perfumey, flowery. Like delicious soap? Flavor is nicer, a little bitterness, a little sweet. Still, hard to get past the perfume like notes. Interesting, but not a favorite by any stretch.

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.
