Since I've had several Saisons this evening I figured I may as well crack open a bottle of Saison Rue, which I've been sitting on for about four months. 750 mL bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a light golden to copper hue, with minimal head. Aroma is subdued, especially for a Saison. Nose is mostly sweet, with some notes of banana and bubblegum. There's some light spiciness in the background as well. Mouthfeel is effervescent and champagne like, with a semi-sweet aftertaste. Surprising amount of spice. The light banana aroma translates into the taste, along with a leather-like taste of recognizable Brett and a drawn out spicy finish. There's some alcohol in the finish and some alcohol warming as you drink it, as this beer certainly packs a punch. My only complaints about this beer would be the subdued aroma, but otherwise it's just about as good as you can get.
