COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison-Brett, based on our very popular Tank 7, is assertively dry hopped, then bottle conditioned with various yeasts, including Brettanomyces, a wild strain that imparts a distinctive earthy quality. Though this farmhouse ale was given three months of bottle age prior to release, further cellaring will continue to enhance the “Brett” character, if that’s what you’re after.

Draft from Mekong. Pours yellow with a white head. Doesn’t leave much lacing. Has some sourness on the nose. Fairly tart on the tongue with a hint of the barnyard you’d expect from the style. Finish lingers in a good way. Ice but not as outstanding as I was hoping.

Smells medicinal and a bit like anbisol. Very carbonated and a pours 90% foam. Tastes pretty good for a beer whose aroma does nothing for me. Fair ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from growler. Cloudy golden color with white head. Tart fruity aroma with some yeasty spiciness. Flavor is tart fruit and citrus and musty notes. Finish is a crisp spicy yeast and tart. Nice brew. Boulevard never disappoints.

7/5/14. Draft at Bull McCabes. Nice earthy spicy nose. Pours a light straw yellow with a small but frothy head. Brett is present but not overwhelming. Nice variation on Tank 7. No weird spice notes just a solid saison with an exotic edge. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Subtle flavors and light tartness make this a very drinkable and refreshing brew. Very clear and pale in color, it goes down easy. Quite nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

swanmann (604) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 30, 2014
From the big bottle: It’s slightly hazy, golden with a touch of green hue, plenty of bright white, fairly well-sustained suds. Aromas of lemon, wet blankets, some black pepper, alcohol, some ester. Lightly tart and sweet, estery, earthy with a black pepper bite and some aspirin-like bitterness. Never disappoints. It’s not typical saison, it’s farmhouse to the bone.

ScipioA (299) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Classic saison appearance of hazy straw-yellow with a billowing white head. Funked and fruity esters on the nose and on the tongue. The taste is a little better than the aroma with some graininess and citrus/herbal hops joining as well. No complaints on the mouthfeel, refreshing with some brett to keep things interesting. Great stuff.

BrettTaylor (481) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Poured on tap. Nice creamy head. Aroma is typically spicy with undernotes of brett funk. Taste is pleasantly spicy, some citrus, sourness, and a touch of funk. This is very nice, crisp, and delicious.
