Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: DoubleJ on 05-01-2008

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.

A- Slight earthy brett is present along with some of the white pepper notes that reminds me of Saison dupont.

A-Dark rich golden with a creamy head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. Clarity is very high, especially for a bottle conditioned and unfiltered beer.

F- The traditional phenols of a classic saison are there along with some very slight undertones of earthy, brett character. The malt bill shines through on this one though with a nice bready flavor.

M- The carbonation level is high, and appropriate for style. The body is full, but the dryness of the style is still apparent.

O- A nicely nuanced saison. The brett and malt character are a great addition. The great qualities of a Saison remain, but this beer has a beautiful level of complexity that makes drinking it a joy.
