look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Hazy yellow body takes up a small portion of the glass while a towering white head looms above and slowly fades to leave a thick and sticky lace behind. Almost too much carbonation to start.

A strong aroma gives of notes of fruits like bananas with a health dose of spice in the background. A slightly earthy/musty character rounds it all out.

Solid malt backbone provides some nice toasted bread notes upon which the yeast adds some fruity esters and a nice dosing so spices to balance it all out.

Nice crisp and refreshing mouthfeel with a lively and bubbly carbonation to add to the texture. Overall, as expected, Saison Rue is a top notch beer. Not quite as funky or earthy as some saisons but still a strong yeast note with the bready rye makes for a damn fine beverage.
