Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Huge head, minimal lacing. Perhaps a bit over carbonated, amber in color.

Smell: Big rye malt scent, spice, and light (not enough) funk.

Taste: Malt and rye, bit of hops and alcohol. Missing that good funk I was hoping for.

Mouthfeel: Bit fizzy yet chewy, hint of alcohol.

Drinkability: Low, no need to try this one again.

Edge of what a saison should be, at least in my book.
