Tonnellerie Rue is a special variation of our rye saison that has been 100% fermented in oak barrels. Using this more traditional storage technique during the fermentation process adds further complexity to an already complex beer by allowing the natural yeast and bacteria, still nestled within the porous oak from previous fermentations, to eat away at the wort’s sugars while it slowly evolves into delicious beer. The final product is dry and earthy with a slight sour tinge, light rye spice and earthy funk.
Our Tonnellerie Series of beers are experiments with barrel fermentation. Look out for others!
