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.

bytemesis (9024) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Bottle. Big time gusher on opening. Sigh. Pours quite hazy golden orange, medium white head, creamy and lasting. Aroma is dusty, earthy, Brett, grasses. Flavor is a hint of sweetness, similar hint of tartness, medium funk, earthy, dirty, Brett, lemon, oak tannins. Medium body, nicely carbonated. This turned out much better than I could have hoped given how it started. A bit hot on the finish belies the 8.5% ABV, which it should not have in the first place IMO.

punkska101 (2136) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2016
Bottle from craft beer cellar shared with God A: barnyard, citrusy, light oak, spicy, apricot App: clear golden thick white lasting head. Excellent lacing t/p: med body with lightly acidic finish. Moderate high carbonation. O: a really fine beer from the Bruery. The wild yeast isn’t too upfront it leaves room to the spiciness of the rye. Good stuff.
