A Note on This Beer
Sipping Abricot Du Fermier (Blend #6) is like sharing a soft, first kiss with someone very special: it’s subtle, gentle, and exquisite, but somehow also incomprehensible. No matter how long you let it linger, it will be over too soon.
Like so many of Side Project’s delicate Wild Ales, it has us falling in love with this tiny brewery all over again.
To create it, the brewers allowed the wild yeasts on their Missouri farm to ferment the brew, coaxing puckering tangy tartness and nuances of rustic funk from the Saison-style base. Then, they aged the beer in French Oak wine barrels for over a year, imparting mild oaky flavors and a touch of vinous grape. An addition of apricots during aging creates bright, jammy stone fruit flavors.
Open the top, and it’s like you’re sitting on a hilltop at sunset, letting the evening breeze awaken your senses — it’s the essence of a time and place, expertly captured in a bottle. On the palate, it’s like biting into a freshly picked apricot, but with a tart, lemony finish.
If you’re fortunate enough to get your hands on this bottle, we suggest splitting it with someone you enjoy sitting very close to. Share a sip, feel the breeze on your face, and see what happens.
