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.

Tasting at Matt’s
Hazy golden color with large head, highly carbonated. Strange aroma, fruity, soapy, a bit spicy ( sweet spices, coriander, anise). Soft mouthfeel; it has a nice fruity touch, strong spices, but also some soap, wood, vegetables.

yngwie (15764) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2008
Bottle, 75cl, thx to papsoe. It pours a hazy orange body with a big diminishing off-white head. Citrus, some caramel, a touch of brett and spices in the aroma. Ginger maybe. Sourish flavor with lemonpeel, spices and alcohol. Dry, medium to full body, fizzy and warming. Decent, spicy finish. I like the spicyness in this beer, but else it was quite ordinary. Or rather maybe just not my beer. (080823)

Bottled 750 ml at Beer Hunters
My first beer from this brewery. Hazy orange color, small white head. Sweetish peach aroma with light white pepper note. Foamy carbonation. Ginger, cinnamon, bretta and mint in the flavor. Very spicey Saison. Not very Belgian.
