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. Itís 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.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2013
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.

douglas88 (8412) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 6, 2013
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.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2013 Unique and refreshing saison. A bit high carbonation. SOme funk, apricot, apple, hops, orange. Like a farmhouse as much as a saison. Liamís bottle.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - APR 17, 2013
98 percentile atm and I still consider this under-rated. Pours hazy light amber, small but lasting head. Aroma is floral, lemon, mild citrus, brett. Flavour is tangerine-like, effervescent, earth, peach. Finish is a bit of lemon and straw. First beer with flowers Iíve liked, if it were cheaper it would become my regular go-to summer beer.

750 ml wine-like bottle. Just kidding! I just read that annoying NY Times article. Okay, maybe not so funny. Geez. This beer pours a hazy cantaloupe hue with a large cream-colored head that sticks around for a nice long time; after it recedes it leaves some nifty-looking lace; a constant skiff and island of foam remain on top of the liquid down to the last drop. Aroma is extremely floral and yeasty, with banana, barnyard funk, and custard notes. Taste is not nearly as impressive as the aroma, but itís not bad. Itís lightly sweet with a firm hop backbone; leaves the mouth dry. Seems a little thin and watery. Overall, again not bad, but there are a lot better farmhouse ales being made right now. I would like to try more from this brewery, but this is the only one available where I live (that Iím aware of anyway). As a sidenote, this beer comes in at a staggering wine-like 5.1% ABV!!!! Joking, really.
