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.

Poured a hazy orange color with a foamy white that was a tad out of control. The aroma was very nice with light citrus, sugar cookie and a touch of funk. The flavor was a well balanced of citrus, spice, bready malts, sweetness and funk. Medium bodied and at times a touch oily. Really tasty. One of my favorites from these guys.

ARH (1118) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2015
750mL bottle, poured into a snifter. The aroma is a robust, pinot noir / barrel - like note with supporting characters of citrus, rye bread, and an emerging banana and cream that comes out with some warmth, and a subtle floral hint. The beer pours mildly hazy with a bronze hue and a dense, white foam head that has moderate light retention and a mild lace. The taste is a medium bittersweet that’s nicely balanced, and a curious, light / medium light sour note. The syrupy texture is cut by a fizzy carbonation. The medium medium body is mostly bitter citrus / grapefruit with a toffee malt backbone. Notes of banana bread and a slight funk come through late. It finishes crisp with woody spice, banana, citrus peel, a dry resin, and some caramel. The aftertaste is dry and clean with rye bread qualities.

Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2010
Pours an orange yellow haze with a thick foam head. Has an aroma of farmhouse funk. Tastes of a sweet saison with malts and hops balance of a belgian strong ale. This is clearly a balance between a light sweet saison and a matly belgian strong. Very good brew.

DenverLogan (1100) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Cloudy yellow. Funky light citrus, straw, and light malt aroma. I thought this stuff rocked...great big flavor, totally tasty but hard to pinpoint...citrus, full bodied, not too malty or hoppy or spicy; dry and funky light saison brett stuff and really great flavors overall. I liked this more than the White or Black Orchid (both of which were very good).

Funky pear aroma, as noted in an eariler review. Flavor is sweet and full of apple, pear, white grape and chardonnay notes. Pours cloudy golden with white head that froths up at first. An excellent Bretty Saison!

Floral, raspberry, mild spice, and mild lemon aroma. Light copper, pale orange, white head, and decent lacing. Medium bodied, fruity, mild oats, and mild lemon notes. Silky, medium bitterness, and lite dryness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
