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.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2008
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of bu11zeye. Hazy golden with a lively and very tall head that dissipates without disappearing completely. Spicy aroma with a whiff of ginger. Medium body, extremely overcarbonated with notes of yeast spice and pale malts. Very astringent and bitter finish. No real traces of the Brett. Disappointing. 230808

madmitch76 (19649) - , Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2010 8th November 2008. Cloudy gold-amber beer, frothy white head. Flavoursome aromatic sourness and distinct spiciness. Just the right side of being over dry. Strong for a Saison. 22nd May 2010. ChrisOs ’Blue Ridge Mountains Of Virginia’ tasting! (Early hours of the morning rating). Sweet aromatics, good saison flavours. Refreshing. Better than original tasting.
