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.

2013 bottle. Pours with a gorgeous fluffy head. Aroma of yeast, a little funk, just lovely. Taste of yeast, Brett, straw, wheat, a little bit tart with the funk. One of the best saisons out there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours out a nice clear blonde with some very, very mild haziness to it an enough carbonation to lift an F-18. The head is thick, white and frothy; in fact it might be what you’d expect angels to be floating on in heaven! Grass, apples, mild tangerine, lemon zest and other earthy aromas come through. Sharp and bitter, the hops come out as it hits the corners of your mouth. It’s sweet overall and very carbonated. Apple and pear flavors do come through in the background. This is medium to light bodied. Overall, this is an excellent beer and represents the style well in my opinion. If you think otherwise, then lend me your taste buds! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Only marks off for slightly oversweet finish that combats the yeast sourness instead of melds with it, but only very slightly. Wish I was having this on a hot day in August rather than now, but still extremely enjoyable.

Slightly hazy orange with really big white head. Very "Orval" like aroma, citrus, "funk", sweet citrus candy, some tartness, maybe a hint of alcohol as it gets warmer. Nice! Big bitterness with a sweet, but yet dry finish.

Bottle shared at a tasting at the Dancing Camel. Thanks to my Awesome Little Brother! Hazy blond with a big white head. Delicate pickle aroma and very tolerable. Slightly funky, delicate sourness that becomes a little pungent as we drink but not inoffensive. Full-bodied, yeasty finish.

Bottle at home. Pours a hazy orange colour with a big, soapy and off-white head. Sour aroma with apple, gooseberries, citrus, wet hay and a little barnyard. The flavour has more citrus and a nice peppery finish. Has a slick and soft mouth feel, and a medium, lasting bitterness. A fresh and balanced sour sasion with a nice bitter touch.

2011 vintage thanks to RakeMan197 aka adnielsen aka NielsenRatings aka @@@@@@ron, BA, BS, MS, PhD candidate. Thanks, bro! Pours a slightly hazed golden color with an enormous head. Aromas of some lemongrass, must, 1990’s era PC games. Taste is slightly sweaty, some sweetness, plenty of dusty mold. No tartness, just bristling with cummy goodness. Finishes semisweet with a lingering old sock note. Pretty fucken great. Thanks Aaron!

Cheers

I love Boulevard and had high expectations. Hazy straw yellow pour with an impressively long white head. The head lasted until the (short) pour was gone. I was hoping to bring the funk, but this was a nice beer. Nice lemony and flowery aroma, a bit of sweet, some bitter, kid of peppery, maybe some funky brett. Maybe. Was not expecting something so subtle but this was nicely balanced. Would have liked this to be more assertive and challenging. Not at all unpleasant. Would I drink again? Yes. Would I order again? Not likely.

From a sours and wilds BIF trade. Feb. ’12 bottle in Jan. 14. Has aged nicely. Super clear gorgeous gold with pillowy head. Big brett nose with some light lemon. Round plush body, malty sweetness, but slightly tart finish of lemon zest and pith and farmhouse elements. Terrific.
