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.

tfratzke (97) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Aroma of lemon, banana, barnyard funk. Murky golden orange with white head. Bottle overflowed when open. High carbonation. Taste is orange, lemon, banana, citrus, tart grass. Another solid from Bruery.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2015
750ml bottle, from Dutch’s. Shared with jstax and phaleslu. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Medium to bigger body. Light dry finish. Nice grapefruit citrus funk. Kind of mild slick, lighter carbonation. Moderate-plus sweet taste, light bitter. Just a touch of tart, but not really sour. Funky but not sour. Hazy golden color. Thin white head. Leaves splotches of lace. Solid, funky saison. Worth $15 though? I’m not so sure. Will probably evolve with a touch of age, though.

Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, apple, brett, light lemon peel, and a hint of oak. It pours a hazy golden-orange with a large white head that eventually settles to a thick film outlined by a thicker ring, There is a good amount of thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus with orange, tangerine, and light lemon. The finish has light-moderate brett, light florals, and oak. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation.

man, liked this version much better than that buttery cereal box of an original release of tonnell .. . can’t touch this .. . yellow haze .. solid head, great lacing .. . can’t touch this .. . mouth is spritzed, brett, hay, husk, and gold soil .. . pretty good brew, would be good candidate for a fruiting treatment .. . . Yo, sound the bell- school is in, sucker.

You can’t touch this

750ml. Caution she’s a gusher. This is a Brett bomb, if that is a thing. Tons of wet blanket. Slight citrus and zest.

conway (2210) - - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy yellowish gold with a huge white head. Bottle pretty much exploded upon opening so probably only drank about a quarter of the bottle. Nice funk, cheese and citrus combo. Light mouthfeel. Very good but be careful opening.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Taster on tap at the bruery. Overall numerical rating only. A bit of cola spice. In a bad way. Average.

3.9
jbruner (4740) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of oaky tannins, funky yeast, stone fruit, and musty grapes. Taste is earthy and oaky, nice funky saison. Booze is well hidden, good carbonation, solid beer.

3.7
phaleslu (10264) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2015
750 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! Pours a hazy gold color with a small white head that settles into a big ring and some film while lacing the glass. Funky and musty, with bready malts, apricot, earth, grapes, peach, and rye. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a funky, dry, fruity mouthfeel. Good beer.

superspak (5594) - Michigan, USA - DEC 14, 2015
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 7/29/2015. Light-moderate gusher upon opening. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Great dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Incredible appearance. Aromas of big lightly tart lemon, lime, pineapple, pear, apricot, white wine, peppercorn, wheat, rye bread, hay, straw, grass, oak, light leather/musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/spicy yeast and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lightly tart lemon, lime, pineapple, pear, apricot, white wine, peppercorn, wheat, rye bread, hay, straw, grass, oak, light leather/musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Moderate amount yeast/oak spiciness and slight fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, pineapple, pear, apricot, white wine, peppercorn, wheat, rye bread, hay, straw, grass, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/spicy yeast and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Nice light-moderate dryness from spiciness as well. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic wild saison style! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/spicy yeast and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
