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.

maekchu (3695) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 4, 2015
Bomber. Fruity blast in the nose -- sweet apples, light peach, bit of banana, and some light funk. Bright golden straw color. Smooth sugary fruit, mid-palate fizz-up of rye and peach, brief bout of sweetness, and then settles. Pleasant, not so funky. Tastes vaguely like a tripel.

750 ml bottle, bottled on 04/11/14 (labeled as Saison Rue). Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with about an inch and a half white head that lingered around a little while. Theres a small amount of lacing. The brew smells like orange peel, apples, pear, peppery and rye spice, and some earthiness. I think the taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but theres the addition of some banana, funk and bready/grainy malt. The rye spiciness kicks in more as the beer warms. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, its easy to drink and is well carbonated. I thought was an enjoyable and refreshing brew, I liked it. $10.99 a bottle.

Pours a golden, straw body with off-white head that dissolves rather quickly. Nice sticky patches of foam. Aroma is yeasty esters, light fruits, bananas, and flowers. Slightly sour taste, white grapes, pear. Some funkiness combined with sweet bready flavors. Spicy funky finish. Very pleasant bucolic beer.
