COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison Rue is an unfiltered, bottle conditioned, Belgian/French-style farmhouse ale. This is a beer of subtlety and complexity, with malted rye, spicy, fruity yeast notes, biscuit-like malt backbone and a slight citrus hop character. With age, this beer will dry out and will become more complex with rustic notes of leather and earth from the contribution of a wild yeast strain. Being a saison, Saison Rue is ambiguous unto itself as it is a different beer when fresh and when aged.

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2010
750 ml at redlight redlight. Pours a cloudy yellow/orange with a generous white head. Really strong nose. hints of farmhouse with a powerful very enjoyable rye aroma. Extremely pungent, earthy flavor. Tasty but definitely not for the faint of heart.

jredmond (8052) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2010
UPDATED: APR 10, 2012 Bottle split with Dallas. Pours a slightly cloudy orangy, amber with slight sediment. The beer has a beautiful, soapy white head. The aroma is extremely tart and sweet. The taste is awesome, complex tartness; fruit, dry - yet delicious finish.

DeputyAndy (636) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2011 pours a hazy honey with lots of persistent head. deep sour notes in the nose. taste is tart with an almost peppermint flavor. very highly carbonated gives a punchy mouthfeel. Finishes residually sweet, almost too sweet. i tend to like my saisons just a bit less sweet and a tad more dry. very nice brew

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow brown color. Flavor is light malts, tart fruits, Euro hops, brett, toasted rye. Medium bodied and fizzy on the palate. Seems like a decent beer for the style, but not really my bag.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Pours a very hazy copper orane with thick, lightly tan-tinged head. Aroma is very gaseous in way with very earthy hops (mineral undertones) and very tart/sour notes (such as what could be described from tart cherry. The first taste yields a lot of cherry notes, particularly dried cherries with brown sugar undertones and raisin notes. A very sweet beer with a light to creamy body and quite a bit of carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a longlasting white head. Has a fruity yeasty spicy citrus aroma. Sweetish fruity yeasty spicy citrus flavor with some hints of brett. Has a dry malty yeasty spicy citrus finish with a bitter hoppy aftertaste.

dagimp (995) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2010
From a 750ml into a snifter. Pours a very nice deep golden with about an inch of fizzy head with never totally dissipates. Aroma is of funk, yeast, lemon and grass; pretty tangy. Mouthfeel is very thick, probably the thickest saison Ive had. Its not quite syrupy, but close. Taste is fairly typical of a saison but with the addition of tartness from both the brett and the rye. I can actually taste both flavors and they complement each other very well. Its a very good bottle to have along with a good dinner. Not an everyday drinker but I would absolutely drink it every so often.

ChazMania (669) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Aroma is not overbearing, just a mild perhaps even sour tinged scent of saison. A cloudyish pour, decent carbonation. The first sip was lightly sour, and full. A bit of....maybe its lemongrass or something. This seems like it would go great with Thai food....hmm, good idea, might need to try that. Really lasting flavor and just another all around delicious offering from the Bruery!
