Another Flora variant is arriving this week.
According to a post on its website, Hill Farmstead Brewery will be releasing Flora Blueberry/Black Currant/Raspberry, a farmstead wheat ale aged in oak barrels with blueberries, black currants 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.
“A few barrels of Flora were selected, and that beer was aged further on a blend of fresh, hand-picked berries from Greensboro and East Hardwick,” reads the website.
This is the seventh version of Flora released in bottles by the Greensboro Bend, Vt.-based brewery:
- Flora Blue/Black, aged on blueberries and blackberries
- Flora Cherry, aged on Montmorency cherries
- Flora Plum, aged on organic plums
- Flora Blueberry, aged on blueberries
- Flora Satsuma Mandarin, aged on Satsuma mandarin oranges
- Flora Blueberry/Black Currant/Raspberry, aged on blueberries, black currants and raspberries
The new beer will be packaged in 375ml bottles ($20) and will have a four bottle per person limit when it is released on Dec. 9 at the brewery.
