Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: UCLABrewN84 on 08-26-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

The Flora Rustica is a prime candidate for barrel aging and much like the Saison du Blodget, produces a historic flavor profile in this bottling. Not quite as hoppy but drawing from the botanical elements of yarrow and calendula, the Flora displays a significant lactic edge to sharpen the otherwise earthy flavors.

40th birthday beer #2!

Appearance. Pours a hazy gold with a touch of amber and a finger of white head that fades to a skim pretty quickly.

Smell. Floral herbs, marigold flowers, lime and lemon rind, and a touch of woody white wine. Interesting.

Taste. Getting a ton of lime here, some floral herbs and marigolds again, oak and vanilla, oranges, and woody spice. Again, interesting.

Mouthfeel. Medium-light body, low carbonation.

Overall. An interesting and unique brew. Enjoyed it more as I went along and got a handle on everything going on with this one.

A: Pours an exceptionally clear apricot colour with 1-2 fingers of off-white head which quickly dissipated to a thin layer. Minimal lacing along the sides of the glass.

S: Limes and lemons along with wet wood, barnyard funkiness, pepper and spicy yeast. Pungent floral notes along with mineralness.

T: Tart lemons together with dry mineral notes and barnyard funkiness. Finishes dry and clean.

M: Dry and clean, with light to moderate body and medium carbonation.

O: Complex smells and taste with citrus, minerals, floralness and wet wood all working in harmony.
