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.

Bottle at Rattle n Hum. Pours hazy amber-gold with a small, white head. Aroma is malty with some spice and yeast notes. Flavor is mildly sweet with a little funk and sourness. Medium in body with lively carbonation. Finishes crisp, clean and lightly hoppy. Very nice.

fiulijn (20221) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Tasting at Matts
Hazy golden color with large head, highly carbonated. Strange aroma, fruity, soapy, a bit spicy ( sweet spices, coriander, anise). Soft mouthfeel; it has a nice fruity touch, strong spices, but also some soap, wood, vegetables.
Messy.

Koelschtrinker (19432) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 5, 2011
Wrziger, gelungen s-hefiger Antrunk. Dabei steigt die Wrzigkeit schnell an und sttzt sich dabei auf die Se, die Getreidigkeit integriert sich gut. Vollmundig, sffig, angenehme Malzigkeit. Dazu wenig bitter, eine gewisse Alkoholigkeit ist in positivem Mae vorhanden. Weiter stark hefig-wrzig, nun brennt der Alkohol leicht in der Nase. Abgesehen davon ist das Bier perfekt abgestimmt und weich. Gefllt ohne Zweifel! 11/13/13/14/12/14

Bottled 750 ml at Beer Hunters
My first beer from this brewery. Hazy orange color, small white head. Sweetish peach aroma with light white pepper note. Foamy carbonation. Ginger, cinnamon, bretta and mint in the flavor. Very spicey Saison. Not very Belgian.
