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.

The new, undisputed, saison/farmhouse ale champion!!!! Beautiful deep golden color, slightly sweet aroma, perfect ammount of sour. Will this get better with age? Who cares, who can possibly have a bottle of this at home and not drink it?

The aroma is mayber the best I have smelled in a saison ever. It is smooth, funky, sweet, and inviting. The color is bright golden sunset with a big foamy head. The Brett contributes well not only to the aroma, but gives delicious sweet and funky flavors as well.

on tap. 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.

Bought at The Village Market, Lompoc, CA. A lot going on here. Unfiltered saison with a slight mealtimes. Very drinkable beer. I would definitely drink it again.

Amazing saison, probably the best Iíve had. Poured into a bruery tulip it bubbled up with a big 3 finger head with a completely hazy golden straw color. smells of brettanomyces, rye, peppercorns and a certain sweet fruitiness I canít put my finger on. The taste is very peppery, you get some funk from the Brett but itís not overpowering, some dry malts, some cider like sweetness. It has a very carbonated, dry, texture to it. Perfectly befitting a saison. The bruery made an excellent beer here, definitely a must try for anyone. Itís complex enough for a seasoned beer drinker but not too overpowering for the average person

Pours a hazy gold, gracious rocky white head that dissipated slowly. Aroma is great, consists of bubblegum, spices, banana, yeast and overall goodness. Taste was sweet with the yeast and spices taking front stage. Finish is a little bitter and it lingers. Smooth mouthfeel and extremely drinkable. Probably one of the best smelling beers I have ever had the pleasure of drinking.

I can only hope to someday brew something this good. Golden color, amazing spicyness in the nose & taste. A little sweet but a great great beer.

Wow this is carbonated! Fuzzy in color, and as expected some sediment. Smell is very earthy/bready with wood notes, grain and some apples. Head is completely white and has the consistency of sea foam. Taste is a lot of apple, bread and carbonation. This doesnít sound all that great but it comes together excellently. Aftertaste is a good amount of hops... with a slight amount of sourness to them. A definite one to try if you like hops. Wonderful beer.

WOW! I am having a hard time finding the words. The appearance is a bit muddy but the head is huge. The aroma is incredible, rye spice, herbs, grass, florals, and even a bit toasty with some nice funk. Taste is more of the aroma but spicy and it seems to change as the beer warms, itís a surprise every sip. Palate is a bit thick for a saison and itís not quite as refreshing as the style usually is. Overall itís an amazing beer and will make a nice sipper on many more fall evenings.
