Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Bottle opened on 9.6.13

A - Pours a cloudy, dark orange with a fizzy, active light tan head that fades pretty quickly.

S - Lots of spices, floral, Brett, earthy.

T - Very subtle at first, then spices, tartness, floral hits you at the end.

D - Decent carbonation with a light-watery body.

O - Great spices and floral notes, not as intense in the taste.

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.

4.04/5  rDev -6%

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.

From a bottle, pours a golden orange, white head that laces the glass and hangs around.

Nose is oak, lots of wood, a faint vanilla. Citrus fruit. The flavor is heavy citrus, tangerine, lemon. Some lactic, Brett mixes in well, with the floral earth tones, and a little oak and vanilla on the tongue. This is a really delicious beer. Refreshing aftertaste, drinkable.

Overall, more of this please.
