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.

Pours a lacing eggshell white head with a straw golden body containing particulates. Aromas of lemongrass and yeast. Flavor is dough, yeast, lemongrass, hint of spice. Body is creamy and smooth. Some bitterness on the finish.

The purest expression of brett in a beer I have had, it totally takes over with its dry hay and horseblanket. Still some very light sweetness - room for even more brett? Madness! A brett-head’s dream.

Boutip (4995) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2010
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dark yellow color ale with a super huge foamy head with great retention and some great lacing as well. Aroma of fruity ester with lightly sweet malt and some dry Brett notes. Taste is also a well balanced mix between some lightly sweet malt with fruity ester and a dry Brett finish. Body is quite full with perfect carbonation and no apparent alcohol even though it is starting to feel like 8.9% after more then one glass. Well made though a tad too sweet for my taste.

dogfish120love (1023) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Pours a cloudy yellow with a huge four fingered head. Smells like a barnyard with sweet aromas of coriander. Flavor is very earthy and dry with hints of lavender. Highly carbonated. Interesting, but not the best saison.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 25, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2010 In the bottle at the 2008 Crescent Moon Summer Beer Fest. Pours bright yellow with a poofy white head that reduces to a thin cover. Slight sulpher aroma. Tastes like the regular Saison by Boulevard. I get no notes of Brett. It’s more sweet than sour as I expected more tartness but only taste some lemon. Lots of sulfer to the finish, has a residual nice bitterness. UPDATE: Bottle number 05378. Pours a murky gold with an explosively huge white head. Has an incredible earthy aroma. Musty. This has some very delicious sweetness. It’s not candy sweet, but it is honeysuckle sweet. An incredible blend of the brett flavors and the finishing hops that add a mild peppery finish on the tongue amidst all the sweetness.

nbutler11 (1267) - Wiesbaden, Hesse, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2010
Bottle shared by daknole -- thank you, sir! As far as saisons go, I really enjoyed this one. Pours straw in color with a fluffy white head. Smells of barnyard, but predominantly grainy, with a little citrus zest and hops in the aroma. Tastes of straw, hops, yeast, and lemon peel. Very pastoral and comforting. Well done.

JoeTheYounger (1155) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Bottle from Bottleworks. Poured a cloudy yellow straw color with thick white meaty head. Aroma was funky and barnyard. Taste was band-aids, some sour taste yet crisp finish. Very refreshing. Crazy carbonation like peroxide.

Dfalken (45) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - JAN 24, 2010
We drank a 1 year old bottle and it had aged very well. Complex fruity flavors with earthy undertones. A good amount of carbonation. Overall a great saison with distinct brett funkiness.
