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.

Dry, dusty nose with a touch of grain and herbal hops. Taste is relatively dry, light crisp malt, some light honey, fresh grassy and herbal hops. Very nice.

750ml bottle pours hazy orange with huge pillowy bretty head. Nose and taste are quite interesting with lots of layered farm funk, herbal grass and tea notes, peppery hay and grain, earthy citus spice and horsey brett. Lots going on in a good way, nice sipper.

750ml bottle @ Kelly's cabin. Pours a slight hazy golden amber colour with a medium white head. Nose is fruity, some wheat, and herbal. Flavour is very herbal and floral, with some light hay. It is medium to light bodied, with a somewhat rough herbal character to it. I definitely prefer the barrel aged version.

Ernest (7913) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2017
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy/creamy, rocky, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of grains of paradise, sage, medicine, plastic. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, medicinal. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Well, this starts off well with an easy 5 for appearance with a big, lasting, clumpy, meringue-like head and sticky lacing that rivals most beer from Belgium itself. Absolutely gorgeous. Unfortunately that's the best thing about the beer, but happily it's still quite enjoyable in the other aspects too. The aroma is clearly adjuncty...rather medicinal and tincture-like, almost approaching Vicks Vap-o-Rub but never really becoming unpleasant. Smells more spiced-and-herbed than flowered, but perhaps that is indeed what the two flowers in question lend. In the mouth it's reasonably well-balanced, albeit again rather medicinal and needing a bit more bitterness. Nice fluffy mouthfeel helps a bit. As with Saison Vert, it's pretty solid despite the adulterations, but once again the additives are more of a distraction than anything...I still find myself wishing they had just left the base beer alone. Very cool that it's only 5.1%, though, and non-sour...I can strongly get behind both of those aspects, because there's wayyyyy too few classic saisons being made in this country.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a softly hazed golden amber with a soft brown hue with a medium sized white head. Soft wheat and a touch of fruit on the nose, a bit of sweetness. Lemon verbena, a bit of herbal and softly woodsy floral tones, soft hay. Medium bodied, lightly floral and herbal, herbal notes don’t cover, but they are the dominant flavor here. Musk, soft yeast and a bit of funkiness slowly developing. Feels like a year or so in wood would be awesome on this.

Johnsense (1822) - - MAR 3, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2017 Orangeish pour, thumb sized rocky white head. Funk, fruity aroma, yeast, flowers. Taste seems muted, flowers, funk, but watered down almost. Surprisingly watery body, low carbonation and a herbal aftertaste. Will chalk this one up to cellared far too long.

3.7
McWorta (1633) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 11, 2017
Hazy deep golden with a large frothy white head, good lacings. Aromas of flowers, summer meadow, floral, perfume with a light touch of funk. Delicate effervescence with a light-medium body and bright texture. Fine sweetness with an intriguing fine acidity and low bitterness. Lasting rather complex floral finish.
