Saison de Rouge is a dry-hopped Red Saison that was fermented in red wine barrels with 100% Brettanomyces. This Saison will be very different than previous releases as it focuses more on hops, spice, malt and a little funk without the acidity.

Although it finished really dry for this malt bill, it still has a bunch of orchard fruit, starburst candy, orange and grape juice and lime peel on the palate from the dry hops (Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe).

Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy reddish brown color. Aroma is yeasty, funk, some light fruits. Flavor is bretty, barnyard funk, malts, touch of fruit. Not as good as the other SP stuff.

750ml. Cloudy reddish brown. This one is heavy on the Brett. Yeast and spices. Leather, oak. Touch of red wine. Dry finish. Without the souring microfloria itís quite a departure from the usual SP lineup.

The Brett funk doesnít work as well as hoped. Very dry from the wine barrels. Nice bit of spice.

Thanks to Armin for sharing this beer. Red with lots of foam. Leather, olive oil, yeast, and flowers. This is complex. Some east, the brett keeps it dry, and it finishes dry as well. I love the complexity and unusual aromas

Bottle shared by Armin, thanks! Pours a murky amber brown with a light yellowish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is red wine forward with grass, light funk and a hint of citrus. Flavor has light tart fruits and red wine with backing notes of light grain and funk.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy reddish brown pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of wine, funk, earth, some slight lemon, oak, touch of caramel, toast. Taste was a mix of leather, funk, lemon, floral, hints of earth, slight dirty feet, finishing with leather, tart.

Bottle from Keir. Thanks man. Apperance is cloudy red with fizzy white head. Aroma is oak, brett funk and a hint of nail polish. Taste is oak, vinious funk, citrus, and a touch of nail polish. Pretty good, lots of funk as this bottle is well over a year old now, itís got a bit of off flavour but not enough for it to take away much from the beer. Solid.

750ml bottle, shared by phaleslu. Hazy red orange color. Dark brick. Thin off-white ring of head. Bits of yeast in the body. Wow, crazy nose. Fantastic smoke... In the flavor, itís a bit too smokey, though. Big toasty oaky woody flavor. Some dark fruit, mild tannic. Moderate tart taste, some savory, very light sweet. Mostly dry finish. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Donít really get too much aroma hop from this, especially not those listed. Some nice cream cheese, vanilla on the finish as I go through this. Tasty, interesting musty stuff.
