Brewed by:
The Bruery
California, United States

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.

Beautiful beer. A delicious alcoholic aroma reminiscent of a sparking white wine. Some subtle malt and yeast characteristics noted in the aroma as well but it is dominated by the sweet smell of fruity alcohol. The flavor of this brew is absolutely amazing there is some straw like malt presence but I was really blown away by the unmistakable fruity characteristics of this beer. This is really something else, a lot of very interesting things are going on in this brew that i cannot even explain. This is more of a fine wine than a beer. Mouthfeel is perfect, nice and dry. Fuck Miller High Life this shit is the real champagne of beers.
