Biere Du PaysBiere Du Pays
Notes: Bière du Pays is inspired by the classic Saisons from the country. An airy and fluffy malt bill is fermented with wild Missouri yeast and bacteria and our house Saison blend. This refreshing and delicate farmhouse ale was aged in wine barrels for several months before it was naturally conditioned.

Purchased this bottle at the Side Project Cellar . Poured into a tulip glass. Bright clear yellow color with a nice effervescent white head, good curtain lacing. Fresh, fruity, floral smell. Tart white wine flavors, lemon, sweet herbs. Crisp clean feel. Excellent beer for Easter!

750 ml bottle, B3, drank out of a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.

Beautiful beer out of the bottle, hay color with an inch of head that settled down to nothing. Vinous acidity on the nose, same for the taste. Very wine barrel influenced. Nice to drink with dinner. While I wanted to sip it and make it last, I found myself taking larger gulps for some reason, even though I found the wine barrel a tad dominant for my uber refined beer palate...(!). This one definitely found its comfort zone about 45 minutes out of the refrigerator. Really enjoyed it.

Pouted from a 750 mL bottle. The color is very light yellow color. The aroma is a bit of funk with with a nice grain smell. The taste follows the smell with the typical SP acidity and a pillowy soft feel. Its a pretty simple beer, but tasty nonetheless.

Blend #11 Bottle, 05/21/2022.

Tart, dry citrus on the nose with a touch of funk & stone fruit. The palate hits with a great tartness to balance the initial acidity. Following is a light, simple profile of lemon peel, oaky dryness, and a little bit of coriander. So crushable.

Blend #10 Bottle, 10/18/2020.

Similar to Grisette in its restrained citrusy tartness and acidity, but uniquely funky on the back end. A bright and elegantly crafted table beer; very much intrigued me to chase some of the fruited variants.

Bottle: Poured a clear yellow color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of tart notes with light oak presence is enticing. Taste is a mix of sour and tart notes, some oak and light funky notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Enjoyable but doesn’t have the depth I was expecting.

Poured from a bottle (blend 8) into a Belgian glass

L: pours a beautiful, clear light gold. Very effervescent when first pours, decent head that faded quickly

S: very nice, delicate nose. Herbal, floral, bit of citrus - some funk but minimal, nice oaky aroma. Traditional saison in a good way

T: get a lot more white wine/oak notes here - lemon, nectarine. Some pepper as well now that’s warmed. Appropriately acidic and tart, very crisp with a slightly sharp finish that fits well

F: medium carbonation, light body, great mouthfeel

O: a very good saison that impresses me more with how balanced and well executed the beer is overall more than any one aspect. One of those "standard" saisons that makes you appreciate how great the style can be, sad this is my last bottle

Pours a vibrant, cloudy orange-gold with a half-finger of soupy, bright white head. The head quickly settles into a wisp and sloppy crown that leaves thin sheets of lacing that slowly slide back down into the beer.

Lovely aroma of light citrus, hay, wood and a fairly traditional saison yeast. Just a hint of funk behind.

Moderately tart tasting, with plum and peach skins mixing beautifully with the light citrus and the oak. Again, there’s just a hint of funk and stone/clay in the background. Mildly puckering finish.

Light to medium bodied with a soft feel and moderate carbonation.

An absolute pleasure. This is a superbly crafted beer.

first try, amazingly different, peachy saison. Feel like I'm in France.
a) Hazy, peach body, with massively lacing white fluffy head that lasts.
s) faint sour, yeasty, peachy, orchard.
t) Adds many more flavors of fall orchard, wet grass, white wine, dry, fresh sawn wood.
f) Aspirin, yeasty, chalky, bright, fresh, clean.
o) Amazing how brewers can bring french countryside into mid-american brew. Bravo.
