For the third time in one month, Hill Farmstead Brewery is releasing a Flora variant.
According to a post on its website, the newest incarnation is Flora Blueberry/Raspberry, a farmstead wheat ale aged in oak wine barrels with blueberries sourced from Greensboro, Vt. and raspberries from Shelburne, Vt. The fruited wheat saison is a new variant that uses the Greensboro Bend, Vt.-based brewery’s Florence (5 percent ABV) as its base before it is aged in wine barrels.
This is the third fruited Flora variant to be released this year: Flora Blueberry 2019 was released as a to-go option on Jan. 2, while Flora Blackberry 2019 was released exclusively for onsite enjoyment on Jan. 16.
Flora Blueberry/Raspberry will be packaged in 375ml bottles ($20) and will have a one bottle per person purchase limit when it is released at the brewery on Feb. 6.
