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.

0.75l - I do love the rye ales now. Mild honey and spice mark the rye, and the sourness mixes in well.

750 ml bottle. A hazy dark blonde beer with a gigantic, frothy/fizzy. slowly collapsing white head. The aroma is moderately malty, lightly hoppy, lightly yeasty. There are strong spicy notes (pepper, coriander, clove), and other notes of bread, lemon peel, orange, with some barnyard. The flavour is moderately sweet, moderately sour, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation, quite long finish with medium bitterness. Not overly rustic, farmy or funky, nice and quite complex aroma, very spicy and citric/orangey, good taste balance, excessively carbonated, I usually do not like flat beers, but this one exceeds. It worths a try, or maybe two. The American origin is guessable, but itís a nice interpretation of a Saison/Belgian Strong Ale.

Poured from 750 ml champaign bottle - Heavily carbonated silty amber with long-lasting foamy head releases a bouquet of citrus and plums. On the tongue, Iím getting an overwhelming amount of bitter orange and bitter hops in general. Complex? Maybe, but doesnít come close to the much cheaper and delicious Ommegang Hennepin. The Bruery extracted $10 + from me for the bottle and Iím left feeling disappointed.

Hazy golden, almost amber pour. Thick white head, faded to a light ring. Aroma was very earthy and rustic. Some fruitiness, rye and light caramel. Flavors were also on the earthy side, very fresh and pleasant tasting. The brett added a nice underlying tartness, light funk that really set this one apart. Not a traditional saison. Very nice.

Bottle. Thick gold-amber with a huge head. Amazing thick white lace. Aroma is buttery and lightly spicy. Mild harsh sweetness with some undefined background spices. Nice thick mouthfeel with lots of carbonation.

Duvel in a Duvel glass? No, itís Saison Rue by The Bruery! And itís more and different than that comparable chaotic lacing, thick white head, and lively golden body of Duvel. My only complaint is that Saison Rue is too dry and bready and the sweetness that is there is somewhat like what one tastes from Pixy Stix. Otherwise, the well-carbonated, lightly creamy brew does great due to its awesomely balanced flavors. Very true to style and I do like the style.

Ok, first off Iím not a huge fan of the style. I really do like their interpretation of it, though. Bottle pours somewhat cloudy golden color with thick white head that lasts during the drink. Aroma is spice and brett. Grass and biscuit seemed mixed in as well. Stingy mouthfeel from the carbonation. Flavor is smooth. Grass, white pepper, biscuit, mixed in with some barnyard and hay. All in a smooth way. This is a really good beer! Finishes dry and leaves me wanting another bottle. Good stuff.

Hazy yellow with big cottony head. Some barnyard in smell with citrus. Apricot or peach taste up front with slight funkiness. Herbal and some rye bitterness with spicy pepper and slight tartness in finish. Moderate mouthfeel that finishes dry. Not bad for my first saison but need to try more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I have been on something of a Rye trip lately. It started with sampling Rye IPAs first, and then several Rye Whiskies, and then I found this Rye Saison. The beer poured a pale golden color and formed a large, creamy looking head. The look was very similar to Duvel, but the strong musty Brett aroma let me know that I was sampling something else altogether. The smell had floral, tart, vinous character, perfect for a farmhouse ale. The taste was dusty dry, with Brett funk in the beginning of the sip. This was followed by a pear like flavor, and finished off with a peppery spiciness. There wasnít much of a rye influence, as the Brett pretty much drove everything else into submission. The aftertaste was herbal with touch of juniper. Very light in the mouth, and easy to drink. The alcohol content was well hidden under these layers, and crept up on you with some warmth. Very good interpretation of the style.
