4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of the better Saisons I’ve ever had. Big alcohol, but all hidden. A very tart citrus saison, not as savory/salty as others. Good spices, present funk/sour. Very full flavor, not watery or thin at all. Although it had good carbonation, it was not a light bubbly beer, this was a heavier, although relatively dry Saison. Delectable to drink, wish I had more.

Delicious. A mild yet flavorful saison, good maltiness, not Bretty, effervescent. Tastes a bit like a tripel, a touch too much heat. Tasty and refreshing bite on the tip of the tongue.

Pours a murky, brownish orange. The aroma is spot on Belgian. Notes of yeast, spice from the rye, a nice grassiness, an almost tart aroma. The flavor is rich and bold, with the rye note coming on strong. This beer is dynamite.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy light amber colour with a dense white head. Aroma is fruity and nutty with light brett. Flavour starts rather sweet and fruity with subtile brett and minerals, nutty, light bready. Ends on a slightly chemical bitter note. Medium on the palate with proper carbonation. Perhaps a tad too sweet for my taste with some sharp chemical notes here and there, still very drinkable though.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL pours a cloudy pale orange/dark gold with a tall, fluffy white head. Aroma is estery with a little wet blanket funk and a nice variety of spices layered on a little leathery fruit. Flavor is wild, with the rye imparting a woody boldness and the Brett adding crazy complexity. A hint of booze pops up right at the finish, as the rye and Brett settle down and the wonderful malt and yeast base shines through. A worthy contender to the throne of Boulevard’s Saison Brett, but not quite ready to start an uprising.

No Brett to speak of in my example. Spicy taste, beautiful creamy texture, if you like rye a nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a golden body under an inch of white head with visible carbonation rocketing from the bottom. Head has good retention Very yeasty and doughy aroma, filled with lemons and soap as well. Flavors are clean and simple: wheat, subtle astringent alcohol, more grains and yeast, and banana. The body is light and carbonation is lively; a bit too fizzy for my taste. This is a decent attempt at a saison and my second try from this brewery. I believe I enjoyed their witbier better than this, but Saison Rue is still worth a taste.

750ml. Pours hazy staw and a fuming head. Aroma is tart and sweet with a hint of earth. Mouthful is a well rounded earthy tart balance.

Bottle. Brett and Rye aroma. Clear golden body with tall, fluffy lasting head. Nice carbonation. Flavor begins off sweet, filled with floral notes. Brett and rye soon follows. Overall dry, yet smooth and well balanced.
