Notes: Raspberry Bière du Pays is our restrained approach to a fruited Saison. We added a thoughtful amount of Black and Red Raspberries to our Bière 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 on oak for several months before being naturally conditioned in this bottle.

so delicious! a lot more raspberry here than there was blackberry in that edition, although i definitely had this one a lot fresher, if that would make much difference in this sort of thing. it has a pretty frosted pink hue, a small head from the tap, and ripe raspberry character even in front of the wild yeast elements, which i think was not the stated goal of this series, but the raspberry is real pungent, and i dont mind it being so forward, its natural and the right mix of sweet and tart. the flavor is deep for such a light drinker, not as sour as their beer has tended lately, and so the wheat in the malt has a space in the flavor. so does some woody funk, white wine notes and tannins, subtle green pear and apple characteristics too, and then the fruit and the tang coming a second later. raspberry is fresh and bold in here, i get rose wine, smashed wild strawberries, and minerals along with the soft feeling grain. nice funky maturity, not overly sour, and fantastic carbonation. this really is great beer, for me more special and interesting and flavorful than the blackberry edition. none of their beers are cheap here, but man some of them are epic!
