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. We hope you enjoy it in all of its incarnations.

Wine EnthusiastWhat The Bruery has done here is a perfect example of what makes the American beer scene so amazing: the fantastic creativity and ability to take a classic style and reinterpret it through another lens. Saison Rue is flavorful and complex, with notes of clove-driven spice, yeasty bread and underripe stone fruit all brought together with a tart, funky Brett streak. Crisply carbonated but smooth and lush, brimming with flavors of spicy malt, herbs, apricot and tropical fruit that transition seamlessly into the peppery finish. Balanced and nuanced, with more subtleties unfolding upon warming. Delicious now, but a sure cellar candidate.
