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.

Spicy yet delicate belgian yeast fragrance, slightly banana-y. Flavor is perfect for summer, herbacious flower taste and spice on the finish. Super sessionable.

Bule (1889) - California, USA - AUG 16, 2014
750ml Bottle pours a very hazy pale brown/yellow color with a lot of frothy head. Wow. Amazing balance of flavor. A little marmalade, mild sweetness. Love the way it looks. I've got the barrel aged version to try too, and can't believe it could be better than this.

Oakes (15815) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
Hazy blonde, very spicy/peppery aroma, herbal, very peppery character. Sweet pale malts and low bitterness. Complex, very nice balance as usual. Good herbals, off-dry finish.

skoisirius (1908) - Earth, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2014
750ml. Pours a lovely straw yellow. Hints of grain and summer flowers on the nose. Flavors lean towards beautiful touches of calendula, hay, a bit of barnyard grains, tender sweeter malts, and finishes with a really pleasant grassy note. Damn good light stuff!

Experiment_Ale (1096) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2014
At upright with Taylor, Stephen, and Dina. Pours yellow hint of orange with thin head. Aroma is tangy orange hay zest. Taste is big raw barely and raw wheat grain grass note, some lemon peel bitter notes but not citrus. Nice and drinkable, strong grainy grassy backbone.

jackl (7093) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Sample @ RBWG, Asheville. Amber pour with a small head. Accent of minty herb. Some lemonade and fruit squash. Taste is earthy. Molding lemon, herb-steeped tea. Light and summery, nimble on the palate. Another winner from Upright.

Hair6a11 (1481) - Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle: pour is murky light gold, with a frothy white head into this glass. This is sticky as hell, and It retains well here. The nose is herbal spice initial, a touch of juniper, florals, grassy notes, with a touch of sweet bread presence. I have no experience with the flora used in this beer but I do know that this is a nice saison. Its spicy initial., with wintergreen and lavender, moving to grass and floral, mild sweet, with a bittering and dry finish.

750 ml bottle sample in October 2012. Pours a hazy golden brown color with a medium sized soapy white head. The aroma and flavor have floral and citrus hops, dry, to malts, grass, lightly herbal; nice drinking saison.

sulawang (1070) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
Visual: (I saw the two unique ingredients and immediately put it in my shopping basket.) Pours almost clear golden marmalade yellow with a MASSIVE long-lasting head, huge creamy retention, sporadic thick sticky lacing, tons and tons of activity. Nose: Chamomile-floral light honeyed malts (lvl-3)-pungency Attack: fizzy-tingly mouthfeel, crisp bite Mid-palate: (lvl-6)-sweetness, (MAIN) lager-barley malt, citrus chamomile, pepper, grassy-straw Finish: burpy, subtle bitter hops, semi-sweet finish. Summary: This drinks like a full-bodied lager that has been kicked up several notches. It has an evolved crisp-sweet barley malt profile with subtle floral nuances. Fantastic.
