Saison Rue is an unfiltered, bottle conditioned, Belgian/French-style farmhouse ale. This is a beer of subtlety and complexity, with malted rye, spicy, fruity yeast notes, biscuit-like malt backbone and a slight citrus hop character. With age, this beer will dry out and will become more complex with rustic notes of leather and earth from the contribution of a wild yeast strain. Being a saison, Saison Rue is ambiguous unto itself as it is a different beer when fresh and when aged.

Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Nez pamplemousse, ananas. Palais puissant, alcool bien présent, assez complexe. Houblon discret mais intéressant. Ensemble plaisant mais un peu trop fort en alcool et trop acide.

17 month old bottle. Pours a clear amber with off white head. Nose is mild, tart with some funk, white wine, cherry. Taste mild, sweet, caramel, rye, spice, honey grapes, dry finish. No booze detected. Flavour is complex but rather subdued. I was expecting more from this.

What on Earth happened here? Tastes like a great saison that has had artificial sweetener added. Perplexed by the high scores here.

Bottle. Pours a somewhat hazy goldwn orange color with a moderate off white head on there. Nose has some nice floral and citrus notes on top of some funk. Taste is slightly sour with a great light floral flavor. Nice...

Holmen1 (3926) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2015
Fra flaske på M2 mars-15: gylden, med højt belgisk skum. Blomster, honning, mild og innsmigrende for sine (iflg RB) 8,5 - eller er det 9,5 som det står på etiketten? Uansett, en kompleks og god representant for saisonstilen. Lekkert balansert.

Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 23.03.15. A gusher. Clear golden. Foamy, dense and persistent off-white head and lacing. Quite refreshing aroma, with a hint of flowers, fresh pear and brett. Similarly fruity taste with more bitterness. Complex aftertaste. A bit fizzy.

Amazing saison, probably the best I’ve had. Poured into a bruery tulip it bubbled up with a big 3 finger head with a completely hazy golden straw color. smells of brettanomyces, rye, peppercorns and a certain sweet fruitiness I can’t put my finger on. The taste is very peppery, you get some funk from the Brett but it’s not overpowering, some dry malts, some cider like sweetness. It has a very carbonated, dry, texture to it. Perfectly befitting a saison. The bruery made an excellent beer here, definitely a must try for anyone. It’s complex enough for a seasoned beer drinker but not too overpowering for the average person

Very complex tasting beer a great summer time beer for BBQ and outdoor fun. A very solid B beer. I do not know the Bruery does it but another complex tasting beer.

Bottle, thanks guys for sharing! Hazy dark golden pour with a fluffy light head. Nose has oak, pears, vanilla and apple juice. Taste is rustic, bretty, warming alcohol, bitter, pears with a dry finish.
