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.

Tmoney99 (11900) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2010
Corked bottle #6005. Poured clear golden color with a large frothy off-white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Heavy brett yeast and fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy blalanced sweet & sour flavor with a medium to heavy sour & sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex drinkable beer.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2010 Pours pale golden yellow with a full white pillowy head. The aroma has a nice lemony/citrusy character undergirded by a decent earthiness. As it sits, some of the citrus fades and gives way to stronger earthiness and hops. The flavor is rather mild with the citrus being most noticeable upfront followed by some of the characteristic earthiness associated with saisons. It finishes a little dry. The flavors were good, but I just couldn’t pull much flavor out this one. I was expecting a pretty good flavor of Brett but this just didn’t deliver.

750mL shared at Carolina Goes Sour. Pours a cloudy bright yellow with a massive white head that has very good retention and crazy lace. Aroma of grapefruit peel, Brett, perfumey hops, ginger root. Taste s fairly sweet, lots of perfume, spices, and Belgian pale ale hoppiness, grassy hops. Dry finish. Very nice!

Thanks to Sprinkle for this beer. This is a great beer. Nice hoppy beer with tons of yeast and floaties in glass as I poured. Taste is very refreshing. Awesome beer Mike, Thanks

marcus (7545) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Pours hazy yellow with a huge fluffy white head and a citrus and spice aroma. There is a pale malt and earthy yeast flavor that is spicy with a fair amount of hop bitterness. Complex, tasty and refreshing.

750ml bottle. Pours hazy yellow with large fluffy white head. Aromas of lemon, wheat, belgian yeast, and some brett. Flavor of sour lemon, yeast, spices, wheat, and brett. Thought there would be some more funk or yeast. Very delicate brew and a good saison. Pretty solid overall.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAR 14, 2010
My first rating in 7 months. What foolishness conspires here, my friends? I put such things behind me: this seems a fitting beer to begin again. Pours a slightly hazy straw with airy, snow-white head. Initial sharp clove nose clears with a little swirling, and the happy aromas begin: the smell of fresh rain on parched red earth, flowery lemon notes, menthol, black pepper, ripe pears. Bright and peppery on the palate, but a certain viney silkiness persists. Minty lemon flavor, briskly hoppy, dry with just a hint of melon sweetness in the finish. Beautiful, sophisticated beer. I do wish for just a little less alcohol.

Not really sure if some age would help this, but it wasn’t at all funky. I was expecting some real funk out of this bottle. Poured into my glass, it had some sediment floating, which I liked and that gave it some haziness to it. Had a strange bubblegum flavor that lead into a spice flavor and finished pretty clean. Carbonation was right on, but I wasn’t impressed with this Saison.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 9, 2010
bottle thanks to pepsican, pours piss yellow with a tall white head. Sour lemon and hay with some funkyness in the aroma. Flavor is straight bubblegum and lemon peel with some dry yeast notes. This wasn’t as funky as I thought it would be, perhaps it’s a fresher bottle.

750mL bottle, 2008 batch 1, courtesy of maximum12 poured into a tulip. Massive pop when the cork opens up and no surprise when the pour generates a gigantic fluffy white head that goes absolutely nowhere. The body is a slightly hazy golden yellow and as bubbly as champagne. The aroma is extremely refreshing and bright with lemon zest, Belgian yeast and some spices as well. The brett adds some complexity but doesn’t dominate and it’s still more citrusy than earthy. The taste is even more refreshing but with a more prevalent brett presence. The initial taste is off lemon zest and hops with the Belgian yeast forming a solid barckbone before the finish brings the earthy funk to the forefront. To say the mouthfeel is lively would be a massive understatement. Crazy amoiunt of carbonation, maybe too much though it doesn’t take away from things. This is definitely one of the better saisons I’ve ever tasted, extremely refreshing but also very complex. A home run from Boulevard.
