by Brasserie Atrium

Now we are breaking our own unwritten rules this month by having two Atrium beers in the same pack.  Our very late container is to blame, and to mitigate this faux-pas we are presenting two very different beers.

The first of which is Florita, the label motto is ‘flower power’.  It is a Saison with Chinese red hibiscus, orange blossom and yuzu (an Asian citrus fruit).

Unsurprisingly the beer smells and tastes quite floral, which I guess was the intention.  There is a solid malty backbone to the beer, and a real sweetness (I’m guessing) from the hibiscus.  In behind that is some citrus but it is the flowery hibiscus that is the dominant flavour.

There isn’t a great deal of saison character, with the yeast sitting back and coming in late in the form of a nice prickly spice note.  

The beer finishes kind of medium to dry, with the good carbonation helping dry this beer up a little on the finish.
