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: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours Dark golden/brown - short white head
Smells of champagne and sour grapes and mild alcohol
Taste medium carbonation medium body, astringent (puckering), sour grapes
Overall fairly surprised at the bros 100 rank but the Brett definitely adds a pretty nice complexity and doesn't overshadow the other grape and hops.. Might buy another bottle to age
