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.

Benzai (16099) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2016
Bottle shared @ Borefts Pre-tasting. Slightly unclear yellow color, average to decent sized white head. Smell and taste malts, wheat, tart, yeast, light funk, light bitterness and even a hint of sweetish floral blossomy notes as well. Decent body and carbonation. Quite interesting.

SinH4 (5483) - Garching b. M�nchen, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2016
Bottle. Hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma is white wine funk. Taste is lightly spicy, more white wine funk. High carbonation. The aroma is nice, I am not convinced by the taste - the spices don’t work together perfectly.

lownote (585) - 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 don’t get the base style, at all. It’s just a soured blackberry beer. Which, at that it’s fine, but I wanted some quadness.

750ml->tulip snifter hybrid. From Dominion Wine & Beer. Gusher. Very hazy gold with huge offwhite head. A: tart and funky citrus, yeast, slight berries, herbs. Nice. T: less tart, less funk, citrus, grains, yeast, coriander. Taste not as good as aroma. Sharp carbonation. OK.
