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.

Une mousse onctueuse se forme au-dessus d’une bière embrouillée à la couleur dorée vivifiante. À ma grande surprise, je détecte des petits fruits rouges au nez, ainsi que des notes épicées gracieuseté de la double action de la levure et du seigle. Rien de trop funky jusqu’à présent. Les bretts font leur apparition en bouche, conférant une petite acidité à la bière. Jumelée à une bonne carbonatation, cette acidité agit comme le catalyseur des saveurs épicées et fruitées de la bière. Un côté mentholé se joint à la fête également. Encore une autre excellente bière de cette brasserie californienne.

Bottle@sbwf14. Orange hazy. Citrus, with a sturdy malty backing. Bit too sturdy. Nicely bittered, balance, great beer overall. I’m not that convinced rye makes a saison better, but interesting to have tried.

Dégustée à Los Angeles. Une bonne bière florale et épicée avec quelques notes de banane et de miel. Un assemblage de saveurs intéressant.

Bottle. Pours cloudy orange, big white head. Good retention, some lace. Aroma of rye, dust, light brett, caramel, floral hop. Taste is quite sweet, minimal bitterness, rye, toffee, booze, toffee. Palate is sticky, slick, sweet finish. No brett, too sweet, too hot to be saison.
