COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our tonnellerie series is the perfect showcase of what we mean when we say that we make "wildly traditional bire". 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.

lownote (584) - Austin, Alabama, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Light blackberry aroma. Pours a reddish brown, very dark except along the edge. Very tart and puckering. Tastes like alcoholic blackberry juice. My issue with this beer is that I dont get the base style, at all. Its just a soured blackberry beer. Which, at that its fine, but I wanted some quadness.

Bottle sample at a tasting, thanks Tom L. Pale hazy yellow with a huge head. Aroma is funky, barnyard and wood. Sweetish-sour flavors, notes of fruits, wood, a bit spicy. Medium bodied, quite dry and fizzy. Good one.

ineedbeer (2132) - Oakland, California, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is nice with a light grain note, moderately strong fruit esters and some light citrus note. Light cracker malt notes with some grain and hints of candi sugar. Overripe stone fruit with some pear and hints of red apple. Light citrus and oak notes. Medium light phenolics with lemongrass and coriander. Not an explosive gusher, but a pretty active gusher nonetheless. Pours a hazy pale gold color with a large, thick, pillowy, white head that recedes very slowly. Moderate lacing and faint legs. Flavor is somewhat sweet with a light acidity and crisp, dry finish. Light cracker and grain notes with some candi sugar. Medium bitterness with light oak notes and a hint of alcohol. Moderate fruit esters with stone fruit, pear and hints of red apple. Faint lemon notes. Medium light phenolics with and herbal, earthy character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low, but present alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice saison from the Bruery. A bit higher ABV than I prefer. I would also prefer a bit more citrus and oak and a bit less phenolics. On the whole though, its a very nice, well made saison.
