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.

brentfeesh (1207) - Gadsden, Alabama, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Golden pour with tons of carbonat8on and a foamy head. Cloudy. Aroma is floral, flowery. The flavor is most interesting with light grain, floral notes, lemon, hint of herb, and a bit of that saison funk. The body is light and wet, pretty quenching and very drinkable. Solid.

sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2010
Trade via Googzoid10. golden color, thick white head. aroma, lots of floral elements, yeasty and citrus. flavors, saison yeast, mild bitterness, grainy with some wheat, palate is light and some nice citrus hops aromas. Finish is dry with enough carbonation to highlight the floral side of the beer, perfectly balanced with not too much hops to overtake the saison aspect. Really enjoying everything by Upright, they found a perfect niche in the saison style and have refined some wonderfully well crafted brews.
