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. 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.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2012
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

Bottled. Pours hazy deep golden with an average off-white head. Aroma of flowers, ripe fruit, yeast and spicy notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry. Light to medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Saison. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Pours a very hazy dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a two finger white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind. Very floral aroma with funky saison yeast, earthy hops and light fruit. Musty straw, grass and flower petal along with some honey, farmhouse yeast, apricot apple and pear. On the fuller end of medium bodied with delicate carbonation and an excellent balance of floral, citrus and farmhouse notes. Floral with subtle peppery spice and dry farmhouse funk. Grass and straw notes along with earthy hops and strong citrus. Orange peel and grapefruit juice with flowers, spice, bread and dry, funky yeast. Really well balanced, refreshing and very easy to drink. I enjoyed this beer very much.

BuckeyeBoy (4971) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 31, 2015
750ml bottle pours out a straw color topped with a fluffy white head. Nose is a mix of floral spice perfume and and yeast notes. Taste is more of the perfume floral spices and lots of herbal.

Ferris (10524) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle - Sweet herbal malts, light honey and citrus and more sweetness. Clear gold with a rich white active head. Much like it smells, pretty sweet and well carbonated. An interesting drink for sure, I can see this going very well with food, but on its own a bit sweet.

slowrunner77 (8991) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 26, 2015
a little over active on the foam and carbonation, but otherwise without fault. loved the dry yeasty flavor and the abundance of florals, especially in the flavor. a little hoppy as well and quite enjoyable.

Prufrockstar (1775) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 29, 2015
750ml bottle, been staring at it long enough that I finally caved. Hazy gold pour with miles and miles of pillowy head. Damn, my pouring technique isnít the best but itís about 4 inches of head for 1 of liquid. Aroma: lemon zest, creamcicle, ginger. Not nearly so botanical as BA version ... Until I take a sip. Botanical herbal medicinal flavor dominates everything. Like Iím in a naturopathic drug store (Iíll disclosure: Iíve never been in such a store, this is just what I imagine) and theyíre bringing out the big guns. Light pepper and bitterness at the end. Rather dry. Iíve gotta admit, I donít like stuff thatís this botanical, so maybe I just donít get this beer, but Iím going to have a hard time finishing this bottle. Calling in help -- any locals who see this tonight, come over to help me finish the bottle!
