COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our tonnellerie series is the perfect showcase of what we mean when we say that we make "wildly traditional bière". Here we have taken our classic Saison Rue recipe, rich with rye malt, and allowed it to ferment spontaneously within extra large oak barrels that previously contained similarly wild beers. After enough time and plenty of wishful thinking, this brand new, earthy, complex, farmhouse ale developed into what was bottled up to enjoy. We find the rustic charm of fermenting a beer in this traditional method is mimicked in the flavor.

bottle was a gusher...lost a few ounces. Funky nose with light saison yeast and spices. Lightly tart in the flavor. pretty good, but not quite a standout for them.

24 sept 2015, tap at the Bruery. Gold, clear, no bubbles. Nose is rich, spicy, woody. Ned body and moderately fizzy. Really nice. Bitter woody notes, sweet golden syrup, hints of cola or rum. Nice.

On tap @ The Bruery. Clear golden pour with a soapy white head. Interesting character of citrus, oak, and tangy melon. Pretty peppery and spicy, too. A lot of peach and white grape. Lots of spice, eucalyptus, and perhaps coriander? A little bit on the sweet side, particularly on the finish. Definitely some apple peel bitterness as well.
