Profile

Smell

The Hibiscus and fruit aroma is very strong on the nose. The malt is a touch flat but helps balance the fruit, and you’ll pick up a touch of leafy hops.

Taste

The initial taste will fake you out with a touch of saison styling, but it quickly shifts gears away from that and settles into a lightly fruity flavour that balances the floral and pear elements. The malt is all but gone, doing its job by holding up the rest of the taste, letting the hops gently come in and tint the fruit with a touch of green and earth. The body is smooth and stays that way until the end, leaving nothing behind.

Pairing

A good candidate for grilled salmon and lemon rice. Let the citrus and fish punch hard.

Sight

Pours a dark, golden colour with a clear body and low carbonation. A thin ring of small bubbles around the top of the glass is all that’s left after the pour.

Description

Patrick Rue started off The Bruery in his kitchen, armed only with a powerful thirst and a desire to make craft beer so tasty and wild that it made people stop drinking. Rue built his own knowledge of brewing at the same time that he built a crew of passionate brew-meisters around him, eventually becoming a world-class, award-winning brewery along the California coast-line. The Bruery has no particular style that it aims for in its beers, choosing instead to let the flavours be their guiding light. They’ve relied on the starting point of many old-world recipes and styles, and then they’ve let their ingenuity and West-coast craft influence take them to where refreshing beer awaits. The Desert Flora is a Belgian-style table beer, lower in alcohol but big on flavour with hibiscus and pears. Serves well at 7°C and can cellar for three months.
