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.

MadDogMD (215) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Everything is right-on to the style- delicate fruits, some grass, dry Belgian yeast, good bottle-conditioned carbonation. There was just something missing to me, some complexity that I was expecting. Still a good brew, overall, though.

Bouteille de 750 ml du Canada Craft Beer Club. Perception des Bretts dès le départ avec ses allures de vieille ferme assortie d'une touche d’ammoniaque. Le seigle est également en évidence avec ses notes céréalières. Un léger fruité aux allures de pommes s’immisce également pour compléter cet olfactif assez complexe. Une belle mousse dense et crémeuse recouvre ce liquide ambré / orangé très voilé. En bouche, les Bretts inondent encore le palais à l'entrée, puis nous donnent des notes de terre ainsi qu'un fruité de pomme et d'orange. De subtiles notes de banane, de caramel, de céréales. Beaucoup de corps ainsi qu'une texture bien huileuse grâce au seigle. Son alcool est bien camouflé. Un plaisir à boire.

Iznogud (5060) - CROATIA - MAR 7, 2018
Bottle, 750 ml, from Beergium. Shared with rest of the crew. Dark hazy golden, large white head. Starts with metallic aroma which disappears afterwards. Spicy, light sweetness, malty, fruity, nice funkiness, dry finish. Medium sourness. Too much carbonation. Medium bodied.

Hopmaestro (1882) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2018
Aroma is malty with slight lemon, bread and spices. Taste develops over time in the glass, but there's some cool stuff going on in here. Citrus, earthy notes, rye, coriander, funk - the whole shebang. The cool thing is though, if you want it to be bland its bland, if you want it to be complex, it is happy to oblige.

pinkzambia (2124) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 13, 2018
Bottle: Cloudy brown with a foamy white head. Spicy yeast aroma and vanilla with toast. Full bodied. Flavors of lemon-lime, fruit cake and nutmeg. Well made saison.

Bottle from systembolaget Golden amber, white head. Aroma of yeast, farm citrus. Taste sweet round, yeast. Hint of bitter bread. Alcoholic finish.

Uzupełnienie profilu notatki. Piana bialutka obfita, drobna, opadając zdobi szkło, pozostaje długo. Kolor złoty klar z pływającymi kłaczkami drożdży. Aromat słodowy, drożdżowy z lekkimi cytrusami, średnio przyjemny, ciężki. Smak słody, karmel, owoce i niewielka słodycz, miód, zioła, lekka ostrość przyprawowa, chmiel klasyczny i nowofalowy cytrusowy. Piwo złożone, wielowymiarowe, smaki grają, ale po tym browarze spodziewałem się petardy a dostałem "Bardzo dobre, ale zwykłe" piwo. Lekkie rozczarowanie

Alusmamuts (2275) - LATVIA - DEC 6, 2017
Amber with medium white head. Mildly sour fruity aroma. Medium fruity sourness with some balancing sweet on the soft bitter background.

Flowers, sweet biscuits, honey, earthy, alcohol. Light Amber colour, small cream head. Honey, sweet biscuits, floral, honey, earthy, alcohol. Medium body, small lively bubbles, sweet and lightly citrus finish. Light on yeast and very sweet for the style. Ok.

pilsnerrogge (3048) - Finspång, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2017
A gusher. Dark orange with a small but thick head. Sourish gooseberry aroma. Sourish taste with notes of gooseberries, wheat, and hops leading to a warming alcohol finish.
