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.

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 I’ve had. It’s 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. It’s a very good bottle to have along with a good dinner. Not an everyday drinker but I would absolutely drink it every so often.

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!

Taster at Bieres et Saveurs Chmably 09. Honey hazy color with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet and malty. The taste is of malt, citrus fruits and spicies with a nice fiish in your mouth.

Bottle from trade. First Bruery beer. Pours a nice somewhat clear orangey gold. Nose is funky and tropical with oranges & barn, as well as disco sweat. On taste, it’s full of brett character, lots of paper mixed with fruit. I don’t get much rye, but I get plenty of complex yeast notes. Interesting, but not as good as Boulevard.

The Brettanomyces is very subtle and pleasing but I was expecting a bit more. Having tried this, I think it’s the lactobacillus that I actually am looking for. Jolly Pumpkin Bam Bier is best I’ve seen around here but New Belgium’s La Folie is my absolute favorite. Different categories, but I think that’s what I was hoping for

My second foray with this brewery (or is it bruery) and I am not disappointed. A bit of a barnyard wild aroma. Very carbonated giving it a nice texture. Flavor is slightly sour with some citrus lemon and a decent body. Pours a cloudy muted orange color with some serious head that you have to let chill out for a bit but it will be rewarding.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Date: 7/19/2009 Source:Mekong Tasting at Mekong with head brewer Jonathan Brue. Light spiciness and some grain with little fruitiness in aroma. Clear light straw with small white head. Nice spicy flavor with hints of juniper and coriander. Dry spicy finish with no fruitiness and hint of Brett.

Good. A little too fizzy from the bottle conditioning, had to wait for that to come out. The rye was subtle, too subtle for me, since I am a rye fan. Overall, a good saison but not as fabulous as I thought it would be based on the other reviews.
