Notes / Commercial Description:
Blackberry Biére du Pays is our restrained approach to a fruited Saison. We added a thoughtful amount of Blackberries to our Biére du Pays to not cloud the nuances of our lovely, little beer, but to add a layer of soft fruit and color for a new experience. Our Missouri yeast and bacteria provide the layers of complexity to this farmhouse ale that was aged in wine barrels for several months before being naturally conditioned in this bottle.

750 mL bottle. Body is golden but tinged by fruit until it looks orange with pinkish hues. Head is fleeting. Smells of oak, berry acidity, and some damp basement yeast aromas. Tastes tart up front. Blackberry is a more dominant flavor, though it isn't a fruit juice saison by any means. Still barely enough blackberry to even identify it as distinctly blackberry. Oak dries it out as tartness builds into the finish. Medium light. Tasty without being all that complex or dynamic. Light fruit, though it ends up being the strongest flavor.

Pale amber with a slight haze and a fuzzy white foam that dies to nothing.

Smell is funky horse blanket, hay, toast and blackberry gummies.

Taste has a nice fruit presence with oak, lemon spritzed blackberry and berry candy that's nicely sour and bouncy of moderate heft, finishing dry yet crisp.

i like the idea of a more delicate approach to the fruit in one of these. the jammy intense ones are awesome, but its also nice to let the yeast have a little bit more of a voice than finishing sourness, and i think this beer accomplishes that really well, although the blackberry is almost too light in here. its been in my cellar for awhile now, so perhaps the fruit has faded a bit. a light lavender colored brew, clearish and light looking with a rising airy white head, very active like a soda. i smell a little of the berries, definitely blackberry, but in the back behind the saison yeast, white winey, and the funky brett, which is very established here and has a fruitiness of its own. clean but woody at the same time too. there is definite wine element to the flavor, and its nice with the blackberry. i get hints of plum and grapey acid before the wood smoothes it over. there is a blooming sort of floral aspect here as well, springing and light, especially with the expressive carbonation in here. in some ways this was almost overly subtle, but thats what good saison is all about. awesome wild yeast profile here and a professional level of refinement. i like the lesser fruit content, makes this unique...

On tap at Beavertown Extravaganza. Orange color. Aroma is musty, fruity, yeasty with barnyard notes. Taste is tart with fermented stonefruit notes. Quite dry on the finish.
