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.

swesson (345) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Poured from a bomber. Cloudy, golden body. Thin white head. Smells of yeasty, malty, clove goodness. Tastes sweet, but not as sweet as a normal saison. Lacing all the way down my pint glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Douberd (4311) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2016
(Bruery Terreux Saison Rue) Bottle 750 ml as The Bruery Saison Rue, bought from De Molen bottleshop a couple of years ago. Served into a teku, ABV 8.5% Deep orange colour on the body, mostly clear, with good activity in it. Tall biut frothy off-white head, with average retention. Aroma has light malts, old wood, light citrus, kind of medicinal alcohol, yeasty notes, light pepper. Nice taste, mostly sweet I’d say, with malts, floral notes, apricot, wood, alcohol. Medium thin body with good carbonation. Pretty good.

glennmastrange (2567) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2016
Bottle. Moderate bread and cereal for the malt, light lemon for the hops, moderate dough and musty for the yeast, with notes of banana, white wine and vinegar in the background. Head is large, frothy, white with fair lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is murky orange/amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, creamy with a lively carbonation and a tart finish. This beer has all the Saison qualities you’d expect but there’s a subtle savory side as well. Top notch stuff.

CapFlu (5047) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2016
Lasting white foamy head atop a clear copper coloured body. Nose of yeast, spice and lemongrass. Tasty lemony front with yeasty dry finish. Good stuff.

Picked this up because it was sour and was from california. Solid beer overall though i feel like rye and bertancomyces clash together.

thepatrickman (530) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Bottle from misterburd -- cheers! I waited on this one about six months to let it develop. Disappointing: the brett and rye don’t assert themselves much, and despite all of the complicated tasting notes this just tasted like kinda random, malty homebrew.

Backlog 2015-06-05 Quite sweet and a little boozy. There are some tart notes as well. Decent.

Ferris (10565) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2016
Tap room - Light grassy and sweet notes with a touch of pepper. Clear gold with a decent white head. Peppery, lemon and some yeasty notes. Bitter finish and OK.

Stylurus (13) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2016
bomber bottled 4/11/14 . Aroma of spices and grains. Nice amber color with a small-bubbled head. Carbonation is tingly on the tongue. This beer was hoppier than anticipated due to its age. A stronger alcohol flavor and % than I’d desire. I was also hoping for some tartness.

milewide (1958) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2016
Hype exceeds the brew. Aroma is modest Brett with little rye. Relatively clear Amber for an unfiltered ale. $11.99 for 750 ml was too expensive.

Pours an amber body with a medium head. Super nice aroma of fruit and a little funk. Taste is as nice with hayish tones paired with a little fruit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
