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 from Root Cellar. Poured a hazy yellow color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy, herbs, fruit and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet & sour witty flavor with a medium to heavy spicy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. I would recommend this to a friend.
