Poured from a bottle, clear but darker orange color. Good head, but breaks down. Sweet aroma, malty, spicey, corianer. Taste is very smooth and sweet, Good American saison.

Poured bomber into a tulip. Pours a hazy golden color with pretty crazy head. Smells and tastes like fruit, bread and citrus. Medium mouthfeel. Nothing really special about this one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a delicious orange amber with a frothy voluminous head. Lots of carbonation. Smells yeasty with hoppy notes sprinkled throughout. Hints of barnyard. Very dry palate with some bitterness and grapefruit coming through. Not too much sweetness but there is some acidity. Not quite a winter beer but still amazingly delicious and one I’ll invest in again.

Compliments of the World Renown Drbayern. Shared with his Hawaiian Sidekick Celticbrew, his driver Uncle Steve and his house boy Brian the Beer Pimp.
A nice spicy aroma. Poured a dirty copper color. Light lace on edge that was really nice. THe taste was dry and spicy. Loved the spicy finish.

Refreshing, with a nice mouthfeel. Aromas and flavors of fresh lemon and apple, with savory nuances of rye, olives and meat, plus a mild nutty maltiness. Creamy and full bodied.
--- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml bottle pours hazy orange with medium head. Nose is funky citrus, apple, and hay. Taste is brett, yeast, apple, cereal, corn flakes, lightly spiced. Finish is weird musty malt funk with some earthy cereal grain and citrus. Not the worst thing, but still not very appealing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This poured a not very attractive orange with a brownish undertone. It was turbid but the brown color gave it a dirty appearance. When held to the light though it was all orange and golden. Fat white head of foam the fell slowly and left a ring and cap with a layer of bubbles on top. refreshed itself and left great lace.
Nose is rye. Peaches with a faint hint of clove. Earthy and woody. There is some terrific bread with a honey sweetness and no alcohol on the nose. Sweet fat malt that even smells plump. Perfumey with a bit of citrus but nothing well defined and a little pepper. Faint clove.
Taste follows the nose all the way. Mouthfeel is sticky and a bit heavy. The drink is perfumey with the ripe peach and some apricot. It’s tangy on the tongue and there’s a robust spice character that really adds depth to already rich bread. The pepper is there to tickle at the back of the throat and the clove remains faint.
This was definitely a surprise to look at but it drank deliciously. It had a dry and earthy yeast that took a back seat to all the sweetness of the fruit and malt. There was a faint woody quality that I thought was very pleasant. Bit of alcohol warmth in the drink but nothing too overdone. The rye sour notes were great with the peach and the after taste was dry and malty.

Had from bottle and on tap many times, recently on tap at Bruery’s 2nd Anniversary party. Pours golden orange with a nice off-white head. Aroma is heavy on malts, spices, and hints of hops and herbs. Tastes of citrus, spices, and rye. A drinkable beer, good carbonation and satisfying finish, but just not my favorite from The Bruery. Saison de Lente one-ups Saison Rue easily.

Pretty good beer. I have only had a few by them and this has been my least favorite. It’s still very good, so that says a lot about this brewery.
