Another Flora variant is arriving this week and this one incorporates more fruits than any previous version.
According to a post on its website, Hill Farmstead Brewery will be releasing Flora Blueberry/Black Currant/Raspberry/Cherry, a farmstead wheat ale aged in oak barrels with blueberries, black currants, cherries and raspberries. 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.
“Only a few barrels were selected, and that beer was aged further on a blend of fresh, hand-picked berries from Greensboro, East Hardwick, and Elmore,” reads a post on Hill Farmstead’s website.
There have been a number of different Flora variants released in bottles by the Greensboro Bend, Vt.-based brewery, including Flora Blue/Black aged on blueberries and blackberries, Flora Blueberry/Black Currant/Raspberry aged on blueberries, black currants and raspberries and Flora Plum aged on organic plums.
Flora Blueberry/Black Currant/Raspberry/Cherry will be packaged in 375ml bottles when it is released on Jan. 31 at the brewery. Prices and purchase limits have yet to be announced.
