The Bruery - Saison Rue

Post by RogerP »

This beer was £18 a flipping bottle @Colston Yard. It took a team of safecrackers to extract MikeP's share from his hidden wallet.

It was very boozy, ABV not declared on bottle, naughty. Ok for a saison, quite liek the one MarkG brought to the November BCB meeting.

Save your £18 and cadge a bottle off Mark.

This year I think that I will finally develop an invisible cardigan and my project to extract gold from spiders legs will also reap great rewards.

I've had this and it's pretty good (I have a clone recipe somewhere), but their Rugbrod is much better. And the rye comes out much more clearly in the latter. With the Saison, aged it's really good as the funk gets a chance to kick in.

That's a big markup on a $10 beer, though - worth $10, but not £18. And US law doesn't require labelling of the ABV as things can be more flexible (they also allow an entire 1% either side as margin of error, in contrast to the .3% allowed in the UK). From memory it's somewhere in the 8.5% region.

I think the labelling was ok for a foreign country but should have had an extra label to make it comply with UK legislation.
