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.

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.

2008; 750mL bottle #05049/11950, via trade with beastiefan2k. I originally had this at BCTC 2007, and I’m happy to have the chance to try it again. Pours a hazy golden color, topped with a huge rocky off-white head. Beautiful musty, barnyardy bretty aroma, with highlights of citrus and light spice. Palate is very dry, with wheat, brett, white pepper and mild spice. I’m a huge fan of bretty farmhouse ales, and this does not disappoint!

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Hazy golden in color with a very large, long lasting pillowy white head. Great aroma: tart citrus, pepper, moderate funk, musty basement. Taste has tart citrus/orange and lemon rind, some peppery saison spice, moderately funky and tart with horseblanket- overall nice and dry with active carbonation and a light hop bitterness in the finish. Perfect amount of brett character in this beer. Excellent, thanks alot Ethan.

A beer more in balance than overpowered by sourness, this Saison has a nice hop and ester spiciness, is slightly creamy, and sour with a bitter finish. Hints of pears, apples, bannana, with notes of wheat, grass and a very citrus, noticabley orange, character to it. Very smooth and refreshing.

Much better than it’s sister Saison, Brett brings more spice, a better kick, and a more noticeable finish...nice white head, too.

Courtesy SoLan. Pours a hazy golden orange with a huge fluffy pearly white head. Smells of spicy citrus, definite funk and some good doses of brett. The flavor has a big spice profile, some pepper, brett, funk, and tart citrus mixed in as well. Very refreshing and full flavored with a decent little bitterness in the finish. Very nice saison, not really any noticeable flaws and very flavorful. Tasty.

BlackForestCO (977) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2009 Bottle from a great guy by the name of mreusch. Poured a clear, golden-yellow color with rising carbonation and a billowing white head that left good lacing. Definite brett in the aroma, with hints of musty barnyard, hay, dried fruits (orange rind, tangerine, lemon peel), dusty spice (pepper, basil), and some dry, floral hops. Smooth, spicy entry with hints of peppers and some soft fruity undertones of orange, tangerine, and light lemon paired with a soft tartness provide a transition into a musty, dry, bretty barnyard yeastiness with hints of hay and cobweb that finishes with a dry, floral hoppiness. Moderate carbonation and a great dryness as a result from the brett and hops. Really an awesome beer, it takes Boulevards base saison and dries it out even more and gives it a bit of funkiness. Thanks Matt, I really appreciate the hook up.

Bottle from FlacoAlto, thanks! Pale blonde, pours an enormous foamy head. Sharp citric hops, soap and leather in the strong aroma. Firm and sharp leathery hopbitter flavor. Herbal with loads of lemon. Fairly sour. Herbal hopbitter aftertaste that lingers on and on. Lovely!

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Bottle from Theisti. Thanks again, man! Pours a deep cheddar orange with a rocket-quick white head. Smells of musty vegetable plastic and monocot spring grass. Flavor is musty lemon cheddar and Brett that will only improve. Thick, full mouthfeel. Excellent beer. Definite cellar beer and a repeat.
