Flora Rustica is a Northwest-style saison inspired by the small and adventurous brewers of Belgium like Brasserie à Vapeur. The name comes from the Roman goddess of flowers and also the fact that this beer has roots in the past. It uses yarrow, calendula and hops which all play into the profile differently. The yarrow shows bright lime and herbaceous notes in the aroma while the hops provide a spicy and grassy character. As it warms the calendula comes through more strongly as a tea-like flavor while the beer finishes appetizingly dry, bitter and invigorating.I'll add Upright to the blogroll. In the meantime, I thought a full post here welcoming Alex would encourage him to believe that we will read along if he keeps the blog current. On the other hand, don't kill yourself, Alex--do get some sleep from time to time.
