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.

Art (3220) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2015
Pretty good saison. Pours a pale cloudy yellow with a full white head. Aromas of hay and grain and light vinegar. Some mineral. Taste is lightly tart with a hint of sweetness that finishes dry.

Pours a dark golden amber color with big fluffy head. Aromas of spice, grass, and a touch of barnyard. Flavor of spicy rye, grassy, yeasty, with a touch of sweetness.

JorgeLee (2234) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2015
Bottle, picked up in the states a while ago. Cloudy hazy mid amber colour, decent white foam. Drunk probably a year plus old. Brett character pleasingly modest. Some funk, not much tart. Spicy. Modest bitterness. Overall pleasant to drink but not convinced all the different flavours they tried to cram in really melded together

Bottle to flute I’ve been sitting on this one for a couple year. I’ve no idea why, but I pulled it out and decided that it was time to get it done. Lemon, yeast, light pepper, wheat, hay, leather, and earth. It’s a hazy, yellowish amber, with a 2 cm very bright white, long lasting, creamy head. Taste is apple, lemon, yeast, booze, and grains.

Iphonephan (7283) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2015
From a 75 cl bottle shared at home. Pours a cloudy gold with an off white head. Spicy, Belgian yeast nose. Flavors of all spice and citrus. Bitter finish.

3.7
ARH (1165) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2015
750mL bottle, poured into a snifter. The aroma is a robust, pinot noir / barrel - like note with supporting characters of citrus, rye bread, and an emerging banana and cream that comes out with some warmth, and a subtle floral hint. The beer pours mildly hazy with a bronze hue and a dense, white foam head that has moderate light retention and a mild lace. The taste is a medium bittersweet that’s nicely balanced, and a curious, light / medium light sour note. The syrupy texture is cut by a fizzy carbonation. The medium medium body is mostly bitter citrus / grapefruit with a toffee malt backbone. Notes of banana bread and a slight funk come through late. It finishes crisp with woody spice, banana, citrus peel, a dry resin, and some caramel. The aftertaste is dry and clean with rye bread qualities.

3.8
Lagerboy (2239) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 2, 2015
750 ml bottled on 03/12/14. Unclear orange, lasting firm white foam. Aroma of fruity yeast, tart and citric. Saison taste infused with tangy rye, sweet fruity and spicy, lots of citrus, lean malt, some herb, earth and very faint funk. Average carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped.

AgentAle (1811) - FORT MCMURRAY, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2015
Aroma is dark fruits, belgian candy sugar, clove and sweet caramel malts. Taste is sweet malts paired with a well balanced bitterness that mellows out smoothly with some yeastiness. Some light spiciness on the tip. Appearance is a hazy gold/orange with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly. Interesting taste and well balanced overall.

3.3
weihenweizen (4111) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2015
75 cl brown bottle poured into a glass. Hazy light orange with no head. Aroma is tart, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is tart, wood, and funk.

3.7
Mep3222 (1636) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2015
Caramelized yeasty aroma. Flavor is more malty than most saisons. Somewhat spicy but not much. Almost a sweet, fruity, wet wool, barnyard, malty flavor. Very different saison. Good but also a bit odd at the same point. Was hoping for some tartness but none. Funk though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
