UPDATED: MAR 11, 2009 750 ml bottle - thanks bitbucket for my first of many chances to try this amazing beer!! straw gold with fizzy white head; huge aromas of grassy goodness with lemons, pepper, yeast, mild funk; way too sessionable for 8.5% as it drinks fruit, sweet and smooth; easily my fav offering from boulevard so far

Bottle shared by psprings at hellbillys hellraiser 3.0. Pours a straw yellow with a white head. Aroma is coriander, funk, yeast. Flavor is funk, coriander, wheat, yeasts, a little sulfur. Nice brew, but the sulfur threw me off a little.

Hazy blonde. Good froth on it. Gorgeous nose - footy, fruity, yeasty, very bretty, earthy and tart. Nice beer - many of these characteristics follow through, with a nice bitter orange character on the palate. Very yeasty finish. Cool.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2011 Thank you SoLan! Looks lovely. glowing with a killer, filigreed white head. A fascinating aroma includes melon skins, fruit pulps, lemon rind, and nice stuff like that. The body is juicier in comparison, and has a nice sweetness for balance. Flavors include orange, kumquat, starfruit. Lots of fruits that are both sweet and acidic. A healthy, refreshing, lively, enjoyable, flavorful saison. 8-5-8-4-14
Re-rate 2011. Not the nicest color, a bright yellow like pee. This aroma is one of the CLEANEST Brett aromas in beerdom. Undiluted, unadulterated, pure dry, woody and characterful bug. So superbly dry and astringent with citrus peel, kumquat skin, and pith. Great Brett finish. One of the best Brett beers in America.9-3-9-4-17

Who doesn’t love the Brett yeast? This is a light saison with a funky nose (not funky in a bad way, of course) -- the taste doesn’t disappoint. It’s a medal-winning brett you could drink all night long.

Thanks to Mreusch for this, my highest rated Saison. Foggy bright golden pour with a finger thick white head. The nose is unmistakably Brett and moderately sweet citrus as is the flavor. Slightly full mouthfeel with some liveliness.
