3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

Bottle shared by joetheyounger. Pours a cloudy straw with a rocky off white head. Aroma is barnyard with some bubblegum, fresh fruits, and some phenolic notes. Flavor is slightly tart and quite funky with more phenolic characteristics and some spice and bubblegum. Light bodied with aggressive carbonation.

Yellow with big white head. Resin and slight hay aroma. Spicy, tangy, pretty refreshing. Mouthfeel is tingly and bright. These Boulevard series beers have all proven to be very very good.
