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.

750ml bottle into snifter. Pours straw yellow with beautiful white head and excellent lacing. Aroma is of pepper, hints of lemon, yeast, and a tad of brett. Mouth feel is very smooth, velvety, with moderate carbonation. Flavor is moderately sweet, peppery finish with slight brett on thepalate. Overall excellent saison however was expecting a tad bit more brett in this beer as the label suggests.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2016 5/30/2015: upped my rating a bit. this is a nice yeasty, light spice, slightly tart saison. the texture is fantastic. 7/2010: Bottle from brewforia.com. Murky yellow pour with a huge fluffy white head. Aromas of yeast, lemon and grass. Taste is bread, yeast, spices, tart, citrus, earthy, perfume and sweet. Definitely interesting. Smooth creamy palate with a sharp bite in the finish that eventually dries out.

Batch 2009-2, 750 mL bottle. Pours murky gold with a fuzzy two finger off white head into a tulip; head fades to lacing. Aroma of tangy Brett, bready malt, lemonpepper, fresh cut hay/farmhouse, bursting with tangerine goodness. Again, loads of Brett/tangerine tang in the flavor. It’s both refreshing and thirst-inspiring. Lemonpepper comes in the middle of the drink leaving a strong spiced flavor on the palate. A bready/hay aspect is present throughout adding some body. The finish is quite dry with a dash of honey. Medium bodied with a fuzzy mouthfeel and a medium level of carbonation. Nice and funky. Draws you in and doesn’t disappoint. Really nice stuff. Kudos Boulevard, it even hides the abv splendidly.

Bouteille de 750 ml. Arômes fantastiques de houblon herbacé et de brettanomycètes. Magnifique robe blonde dorée, légèrement trouble, énorme tête qui tient bien. Effervescence très active. En bouche, la bière présente une texture très crémeuse et veloutée. La levure épicée et le houblon herbacé sont parfaitement équilibrés par un malt mielleux bien rond, sans jamais devenir sucré. Finale assez douce et sèche, où l’alcool fait une petite apparition. Spectaculaire et parfaitement équilibrée !

nimbleprop (7354) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 24, 2010
750ml bottle pours a hazy, straw yellow with a foamy, very active white head. Grassy aroma, floral, hay, lemon peel, spice, musty, earthy, flower petals. Flavor is sweet, floral, perfume, malts, grass, hay, light spice, coriander, like white pepper. Very earthy, like eating the tops of a carrot or the leaves of a strawberry plant. Medium bodied, chalky and very soft on the finish. Very nice. An easy drinker with nice complexity.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 20, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 Bottle. Pours a hazy, light golden with a billowing, quickly diminishing white head. Maybe a bit overcarbonated: I nearly lost an eye when the cork flew out of the bottle. Aroma is wonderful: lush, creamy, lemon, light malt, earthiness, some bret. Flavor is quite bitter from the hopping, but balanced with lots of mild bret, lemon and orange, light malt. Creamy, lush mouthfeel. Light, refreshing, and delicious. (June 2010) -- Just had it for the third time. It’s as delicious as ever. A world class beer. This time I was struck by the brett’s tropical fruit notes.

Bottle shared at Dickinsonbeer’s Saison tasting. Pours golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Nice funky bretty aroma with a light tartness and some spicy notes. The flavor is funky bretty, with a light amount of tartness and some nice spicy notes, followed by a refreshingly dry finish. Nice.

750 ml bottle (Batch Number 2009-2 / No 06005 of 13400) shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Pours straw golden on color with a large fluffy white head. Sediment throughout the glass. The aroma shows only mild Brett character. It is earthy, funky, moderate lemon citrus, pale malts with hints of sweetness. The flavor opens with a touch of sweetness before becoming dry and funky. The Brett character is more noticeable than in the nose but could still use time to develop. Lemon citrus, horseblanket, various fruits, some bitterness and some alcohol round out the flavors. Medium bodied, ample carbonation. Well worth the try.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Bottle from Cavie. Cloudy yellow pour with a big white head. Aroma is funky, citrus, sweet, tart, and sour. Taste is too much. Twangy, harsh sweetness, some fruit, and dry.
