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.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - SEP 13, 2009
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!

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - AUG 31, 2009
body is orangey-golden and cloudy, head is very tall and creamy like merangue, very light tan/dusty white colored. lots of clingy lacing. lots of fizz up the middle of the body. aroma is white pepper and very citrusy like twisted lemon and tangerine rinds, a little yeast, weak brett, and bready rye malt. mouthfeel is highly carbonated, flavor is tangy dry citrus like dried orange peel, pale and dry bready rye malt, some bitter hop, yeasty earthy dried grassyness/hay. very spicy in the finish like peppercorns. a little citrusy bitter hop aftertaste.

Simonsen (1097) - NORWAY - SEP 29, 2012
Drukket på hyttetur med entusiaster, gylden farge med mye skum, forfriskende smak med innslag av gress sitrus og humle

750ml bottle thanks to Dunk. Whoa, a gusher! Pours a clear golden amber with a huge, fluffy white head. Nose is lemon and spice. Taste is lemon and spice with lots of pepper. Mouthfeel is medium with lots of carbonation and a bitter hop finish.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2009
I enjoyed this one during our tenth wedding anniversary and it worked well with a cold end of May night and its warm yeasty texture with some bitter hops in the background (hallertauer? German?). The rye really works with this one and seems to meld well with the sweetness without creating an odd bready sensation I’ve gotten with other beers which utilize rye. Dry and a lot of carbonation (big head).

DenverLogan (1069) - 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).

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

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, I’m getting an overwhelming amount of bitter orange and bitter hops in general. Complex? Maybe, but doesn’t come close to the much cheaper and delicious Ommegang Hennepin. The Bruery extracted $10 + from me for the bottle and I’m left feeling disappointed.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - MAR 20, 2011
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 it’s a nice interpretation of a Saison/Belgian Strong Ale.
