98pointsThe Bruery Saison Rue Belgian-Style Ale

What 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. Lauren Buzzeo
