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. Its 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.

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 (6342) - 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 (13189) - 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 (10445) - 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 (2018) - Cincinnati, Ohio, 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 isnt the best but its 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 Im in a naturopathic drug store (Ill disclosure: Ive never been in such a store, this is just what I imagine) and theyre bringing out the big guns. Light pepper and bitterness at the end. Rather dry. Ive gotta admit, I dont like stuff thats this botanical, so maybe I just dont get this beer, but Im 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!

ryanfolty (2424) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - DEC 24, 2014
December 24, 2014 - bottle from Everetts. Clear golden pour with huge amount of head that sat around for a long time. Aroma was spice and flowers. Taste was consistent with aroma, but also had some citrus / lemon. Dry and spicy in the finish and bubbly carbonation. Light to medium body and maybe a touch watery at times.

devman171 (1221) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle, pours hazy orange with huge white frothy head. Aroma is grassy with light flora hops and light spices. taste is pretty similar to the nose, less intense spices, creamy body and dry finish

[ Bottle ][ 1/3 of 75cl ][ Tasting ][ ][ Tulip ][ 11.29.14 ]
Murky gold, ultra-active head, lasts forever. Salty dough-crust nose, extremely mineralic with heavy yeast, moderately floral. Overly floral front palate, gravel dryness early alongside grassy bitterness, doughy finish absorbed by dryness, cliff-like end, lips stuck together. Burping carbonation minutes later.
