COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draft at the source on 6/26/2016. Golden with a white head. Heavy lacing. Aroma is funk, wild yeast, some fruitiness. Taste is similar to nose, with some spiciness. A touch of white pepper. Overall, it’s a bit more bland than expected.

Aroma: very sour and funky; Appearance: light straw, clear with large white head that dissipates slowly; lots of lacing; Taste: also much lighter taste than aroma; not a ton of flavor; Palate: medium light body with short finish; Overall: would like flavor to follow nose more closely. Pretty good.

thedm (5551) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 13, 2016
This bottled brew from a beer bar poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent golden orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was floral and musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering mild vinous hop aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of mild citrus mildly vinous floral crisp and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Served into a teku, ABV 8.5% Deep orange colour on the body, mostly clear, with good activity in it. Tall biut frothy off-white head, with average retention.

glennmastrange (2620) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2016
Bottle. Moderate bread and cereal for the malt, light lemon for the hops, moderate dough and musty for the yeast, with notes of banana, white wine and vinegar in the background. Head is large, frothy, white with fair lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is murky orange/amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, creamy with a lively carbonation and a tart finish. This beer has all the Saison qualities you’d expect but there’s a subtle savory side as well. Top notch stuff.
