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.

750mL bottled 2015, drunk 3/26/16, shared by AdamChandler, thanks!
Well, this one got away from me, quite literally, as the beer erupted all over the place. We lost about a third of the bottle. The color is a blonde-golden with a huge white head showing strong retention.
Lots of oak, hay, grass and easygoing brett in the nose are all quite enjoyable. Theres, perhaps, a bit more oak than Id prefer with some strong honey and dough, but its definitely identifiably Belgian.
Carbonation is very strong, though not overly tight, in the mouth, while hay, dough and floral brett notes develop. Some sweetness remains on the finish, perhaps a bit too much so, with light alcohol/glue and a healthy dose of old band-aid. Dry nectarine and apricot esters are the highlight of the beer, which isnt a peach-banana bomb, as expected. Soft enough texture, from all the sugars still here, no doubt. Eh. Its certainly passable, which is more than most Bruery beers are, but quite forgettable and a bit messy.

A nice blend of nectarine, candy sugar and sourness, showing some light funk, rye and spice notes. Medium length.

AirForceHops (6869) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle thanks to AdamChan. Fantastic white head with good retention. Nose is grainy with light yeast and mild apricot, traces of malts.

Flavor shows very classic mix between yeast esters and bits of rye throughout.. decent balance... fairly dry texture with a grainy rye spiciness. Good carbonation and body seem spot-on. Very drinkable, Probably my favorite (non -imperial stout/ Porter ) from this brewer in a VERY long time. The booze is slightly noticeable but doesnt kill the flavor for me.

75CL...this thing exploded. ridiculous. A murky orange yogurt mess despite being stored upright for a long time. so now its cloudy, its orange, a creamy looking head. Aroma is great. spicy, a lot of brett, tropical as well. it smells really good. It has a little bit of ethanol, alcohol, booze taste to it. the spice is here, the tropical hop profile is nice and theres a good wheat body, the lingering finish. I juts dont like the booziness of the finish.

Bottle at the Sovereign. Massive gusher, lost 3/4 of the bottle. Cloudy orange yellow color, white head. Aroma of white pepper, raw bread dough, lemon. Taste is bretty, dusty, peppery citrus. Nice stuff, but be very careful.
