Notes/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.

Crisp thin head, with minimal lacing patterns. Aroma of fresh grass and stone fruit, notably apricot, plum, and peach. Citrus notes of light lemon zest, grapefruit, and tangerine with a fair amount of mango, especially in the aftertaste. Very light body with a lasting aftertaste of citrus and hops.
