As I recall, Ruth’s a small beer of Fred, though if that’s wrong--well, you heard it on the internet. I am pretty certain it was named for (brewer) Doug Sprints’s grandmother. In any case, it’s a wonderful session ale. Perfectly unassuming, yet it has a funky yeast quality that seems Belgian, though the brewery claims it’s Wyeast Scottish, so go figyah. Dry and lip-smacking. A HoTD when you can’t quite DO a HoTD. Or maybe a summer HoTD. Oh, I found it in the saison category, which is absurd.

Clear and golden in appearance. Both the aroma and flavour have an unpleasant grassiness. There is a light hoppiness in the background but overall it feels like a mess.
