A Note on This Beer
Add a bottle of today’s Bière du Pays (Blend 8) to your collection and you’ll have something to impress even the snobbiest of your beer geek buddies. This stuff earns a perfect 100/100 from Craft Beer and Brewing, who love its “fruity notes with tart lime, grapefruit, and a light spiciness.”
Last time we got a few bottles of Bière du Pays way back in 2017, you guys completely lost your minds, rating it an outlandish 4.46 on Tavour.
No surprise there! This delightful Saison comes from Missouri's Side Project Brewing, the #1 brewery on Untappd (if you don’t count Meaderies, and why would we?)
Plus, this brew is one of BeerAdvocates’ Top 50 Saisons ever.
If you’re feeling generous enough to share, anyone you give a taste will owe you big time. Bring this coveted brew to your next bottleshare and every Saison fan there will want to snag a bottle.
But once you open this bright brew and get a whiff of the tangy, citrusy, slightly oaky aromas that come pouring out, you’re not gonna want to trade this one away.
Side Project creates the slightly funky lemon zest and stonefruit flavors of Bière du Pays by fermenting with wild yeast from the Missouri countryside AND their own Saison yeast. Several months in neutral-oak wine barrels adds woody nuances and a slight hint of vanilla, along with a very subtle vinous character.
So snag a bottle of Bière du Pays while we have them. Because once this batch is gone, it might be another 2 years before we’re able to get our hands on more.
