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.

Bottle @ TFODRBSG, Ulfborg, 2008.
[thank you, papsoe]
Pours hazy golden with a small, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, lightly spicy with oranges, cloves and a caramel edge to it. Fine mouthfeel with a grainy edge - could perhaps do with some more fluffyness, like many other saisons. Flavour is great, though. Very nice malty balance, some fruity tartness, and a great balance of pepper and other spices. Some caramel and rye bread play along as well. Not a touch on the Jandrain we had earlier, but still wonderful.
