Pros: Excellent appearance, gorgeous rocky head. Totally exotic and unique, with flavors and aromas of pineapple, tangerine, orange. Densely loaded with taste. Terrific mouth feel.
Cons: Not a single flaw in this seamlessly constructed effort.
A beautiful beer in every way.

Bottle shared at tasting. Thanks! Pours light yellow to orange with a light beige head. Smell is light bright, lemony and lightly funky. Taste is bright, funky, tart lemon and grassy hops. Medium body and medium carbonation. Pretty enjoyable, and better than the original, I’d say.

Pours cloudy orange (with bits in) with a giant, rocky, quickly foamy head. Nose is grapefruit, lemongrass, hay, and sour cream. Flavor is very earthy and musty, with some citrus and allspice. Fairly dry. Clean, medium bodied palate. Long complex aftertaste. Very good indeed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. thanks to matt for sending this one along....darker, more opaque light orange pour with an immense thick fluffy white head.... more vibrant and juicy pineapple and citrus accents even more so than the non-brett version..... just a lot more flavor to the saison brett with a bit more dry bitterness in the finish with some additional mustiness....i’m glad i have another bottle of this to see how the brett continues to add character to this one.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled @ Hellbilly’s Hellraiser 3.0 thanks to psprings...THANKS PAUL!!! Meringue 1-inch head floats above a hazy golden orange body. Sticky lacing sticks defiantly to the inside of the glass. Aroma is yeast, orange zest, lemon, and feet. Horseblanket is undeniable in the flavor...this not as sour as expected but the funk is present. Fizzy mouthfeel...a little prickly on the tongue.

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
