For the fifth time in almost as many months, Hill Farmstead Brewery is releasing a Flora variant.
Flora Plum 2019 is a farmstead wheat ale aged in oak wine barrels “for several months” with a blend of 10 varieties of hand-picked, organic plums sourced from Elmore Roots Nursery in Elmore, Vt. The wheat saison uses the the Greensboro Bend, Vt.-based brewery’s Florence (5 percent ABV) as its base before it is aged in wine barrels and was last sold in June 2018.
This will be the fifth fruited Flora variant to be released this year:
- Flora Blueberry 2019 — Jan. 2
- Flora Blackberry 2019 — Jan. 16
- Flora Blueberry/Raspberry — Feb. 6
- Flora Raspberry, Cherry and Northern Kiwi — April 24
- Flora Plum 2019 — May 8
According to a post on its website, Flora Plum 2019 will be packaged in 375ml bottles ($20) with a four bottle per person purchase limit when it is released at the brewery on May 8.
