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 $12.50. Nice hazy yellow with a super active head that refuses to die down. Nice smell, bretty without being farm-like smells quite lemony. The flavor is a lot more lemon but not sour at all, mouthfeel was good and this beer was incredibly easy to drink. This may be the best Boulevard beer I have had thus far.

Bottle for Fathers Day thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours a VERY impressive light clody yellow with very fluffy white head that won’t let up. Aroma is great, some farmhouse/funk, fruit, lemon citrus......Flavor is a bit different, some citrus notes, brett funk, no citrus tang, fruit, some sweetness, malt. Mouth feel is great, light-medium body with very high fizzy carbonation. Overall, all but the flavor came through for me...if it tasted the way it smelled, would have been GREAT!!!!!!!� I just wanted a little more tang from this....If this was sour, would have been TERRIFIC!!!!!!!

Beaver (1285) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2009
750 ml bottle - batch 2009-1 bottle 05590/11925. Pours a hazy deep dark yellow with a huge pillowy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is some sweet fruity malts, funky yeast and brett.

The flavor is some sweet fruitiness and a big yeasty funk with some subdued brett. As it warms more fruits and brett come out. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with tons of sharp carbonation that mellows as it sits.

Overall, a nice funky saison with good brett and sweet fruits to complement it. It definitely improves a lot as it warms.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 15, 2009
2008 Bottle - Pours a hazy golden with a large white head...enigma brew, half the folks that sampled it had no head at all, while other had big ones...also, from one sip to the next, the carbonation would come and go??...aroma was terrifically rustic, grainy, dirty, floral and spicy and a bit tart...flavour was similarly nice, not as funky as some would expect, but still a wonderful complementary sourness to this spicy brew...

750ml bottle thanks to CaryTheDude who hooked me up with a beer i’ve been wanting for a long time. Bottle number 296/11925. Beautiful hazy golden color with huge white head that lingers on and on. Aroma of flowery hops, pale malt, and funk. Flavor of flowers, light herbal notes, yeast and funk. Some spice in there too. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, spicey finish with some hops. By far the best Saison i’ve ever had. So glad I got to try this one.

Got a bottle of this at By The Bottle in Vancouver, WA. Colour...goldenrod. Nose... spicy, yeasty. Palate... lot’s o’ carbonation, and you can tell the dry hop w/ its nice bite. Complex, yeasty and delightfully Bretty with a medium finish. Nicely done!

bradner (91) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Batch Number 2008-1 (Purchased October 2008). Bottle #750 purchased in Savoy, Illinois. Pours cloudy yellow-gold color with a huge head that takes a long time to dissipate. Aroma of yeast, sweetness, and floral. Lots of carbonation that lasts quite a while. Spicy aftertaste that is slightly bitter. Great mouthfeel and very easy to drink. The alcohol is hidden very well. I have a few more bottles of this that are being "cellared" right now. This is the 4th bottle of this that I have consumed and everyone of them has been great! I can’t wait to try the 2009 batch.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2009 Bottle shared at PPRBSG09. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma and flavor of tropical fruits, yeast, and light spices. Very smooth and dry, easy drinking. I need to get more of this... 8/4/8/5/16 (4.1/5)

Update 11/3/09: Bottle thanks to a generous ratebeerian! Aroma is very fruity with lots of citrus and hops, some lemon grass, melon, and spices. Flavor of dry hops and the same fruity sweetness. Super awesome! 8/4/9/5/17 [4.3/5]
