Pours clear but with some teenie, tiny floaties. Head is huge, white, frothy, and tightly packed. Retention is like watching grass grow: slow. Lacing really isn't there in spite of the size of the foam.
Aroma has some nice farmhouse funk. Yeast, some spice, and rye come through. Spice is probably a product of the rye. There seems to be some bread malt with a touch of sweet.
Taste is subtly complex. Spice, rye, and yeast all dance, as choreographed, to a pleasant tune in the mouth. Spice lingers as dose a bit of funk. Bread malt sits behind: supportive. Spice is definitely the strongest element here.
Body is between light and medium while the carbonation is mild.
This is a really solid offering. I could have this often as this is one of my favorite styles of beer and Saison Rue seems to almost nail it perfectly. Enjoy!
