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.

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, its full of brett character, lots of paper mixed with fruit. I dont 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 its the lactobacillus that I actually am looking for. Jolly Pumpkin Bam Bier is best Ive seen around here but New Belgiums La Folie is my absolute favorite. Different categories, but I think thats 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.

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.

From Voldby, DK. Bottled, 221209. Amber with white head. Aroma complex of fruit, malt and yeast. Flavor is with a unbalanced touch of the rye

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2010 Hazy-ish amber, huge fluffy head. Sweet bread and brett funk-musty aroma. Velvety feel, medium carbonation. Nice mix of flavors that blend together very well - almost indiscriminantly, simple and complex at the same time. The brett funk and the rye complement each other incredibly well. Very grassy and fruity - apple peel and orange- to start, then a tart note and a bite from the rye at the end. The 8.5% is barely evident. Very nice and smooth, very easy to drink. sweet enough to be tasty, bitter enough to just balance it. Incredibly well made and balanced.
