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 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 doesn’t 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 it’s cloudy, it’s 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 there’s a good wheat body, the lingering finish. I juts don’t like the booziness of the finish.

Travlr (25185) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2016
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.

3.9
Dogbrick (13132) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2016
This beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, oak, yeast and malt. Medium body with flavors of oak, floral yeast, fruit and mildly spicy rye malt. The finish is tart with an oaky and fruity aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

3.7
Mesjasz (1545) - Lodz, POLAND - MAR 13, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2016 Bottle sample at Chmielarnia. Aroma of funk, fruit esters, some woody note. Flavor of fruits, leather, hay.

bhensonb (15336) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Capped 750 from ? Pours a monstrous gusher that emptied 1/3 of the bottle. It pours very hazy gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma is rye/citrus/earth and something "wild". Med body or better. Flavor is woody, rye, earth, citrus and something wild, tho it’s not extreme. This must be a "unique" ale.

AgentAle (1760) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2016
Aroma is clove, straw, lemongrass, citrus and sweet light grains. Taste is tart, clove, straw and yeast and honey. Finishes with tart and slight funkiness. Appearance is a hazy gold with a medium pearl head that retains very well.

popery (2170) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 24, 2016
The beer is a yellow orange color, sort of tannish gold. Big white head, lots of foam. It’s very cloudy, completely opaque. Lots of lacing. The aroma has a lot of apricot and grape flavor. Light rye, some earth. Mild acidity and oak. Lots of solidly fruity barrel-aged saison action. Taste starts with some fruity sweetness. Yeasty, dry finish with solid oak. Very mildly sour. Lots of fruit. Creamy feel with some body to it. Quite good. On a separate note, the bottle gushed hugely. Went off like a geyser.

Really nice wild ale. A good IPA follow up as you still get the sour on your palate in a great way post hops. Nice fruity spit smell and palate. On tap in Chicago. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
