FRENCH YEAST, MINNESOTA HOME
At 5.7% ABV, about 30 IBU, and on the higher end of the carbonation spectrum, The Expat is in line with classic definitions of the styleby the numbers, anyway. Unlike most saisons, however, The Expat is brewed with a substantial percentage of rye in the mash. The result is a crisp, effervescent saison that is true in spirit to the styles heritage of fusing refreshment with a bold, spicy farmhouse character. Its a great beer to enjoy on its own in the late afternoon, but may even be better when paired with a meal. As Garrett Oliver writes in The Brewmasters Table, With food, the best saisons are beyond versatilethey are virtually invincible.
