3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2015 Tried again Dec 2013. Way sweeter, can taste more sugar than I remembered. Solid bodied, orange flavored farmhouse beer. Great as a pre-dinner drink while cooking

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium gold, bug fluffy white head. Tropical fruit and citrus on the nose, plus floral peppery spicy notes. Toasty grain, more citrus and tropical notes, and a mild citrus rind and resin hop finish and more of that lovely pepper. Moderate sweetness to start, but finishes fairly dry. Very good, nice complexity and very easy drinking.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a fan of the style but got it as an extra in a trade, so - scooping. Was intrigued by it being a Boulevard effort.
Pours amber with tiny Belgian bubbles. Aroma is Belgian yeast and maybe a little honey. Taste is all coriander, honey, pepper and citrus. Strong but not overpowering. A little too much lemon, gets a bit sour and doesn’t sit well. Too carbonated, but again - maybe that’s the style. Good Belgian effort.

Fizzy and hazy. Citrus lemon aroma swell as taste. A bit harsh in the mouthfeel but refreshing.

On tap at a KC bar in the matching Boulevard glass. Hazy yellow with a white(ish?) head (hey, it was a dark bar). A wonderful mix of aromas and flavors -- funky / spicy / fruity / malty / yeasty. Nice sour hop finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL bottle, pours cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of barnyard funk, yeast and grains. Flavour is quite funky, with lots of the barnyard qualities, yeast and some spiciness. Very enjoyable, though nowhere near Saison Brett.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Corked & Caged 750 ml Bottle. Sparkling lemon yellow and gold colored in appearance with active carbonation trails and massive sea foam head. The aromatic notes are mostly lemon zest, honey and pears with some sharp yeast funkiness in the background. The flavor starts off tart and acidic with a blend of grapefruit citrus, honey and cloves. After that, it’s mostly malt and yeast notes with a little bit of peppery spiciness. The body is slightly creamy with heavy carbonation with a dry, tart finish and mild clove aftertaste. Overall, a smooth and refreshing Saison with a nice alcohol kick to it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice slightly hazy golden with a thick and rather persistent buttery off-white head. Aroma is wheaty and yeasty, rather strong with a hint of lemon, enough to tempt a taste. Flavor is wheaty and yeasty, as the aroma promises, with a lemon underpinning and a surprising strong hint of hops. Texture is fizzy, lively and firm-bodied. I’m glad I discovered this brewery!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy light tan. Thin head. The aroma is herbal, lightly spicy with mostly spicy American hops and a nice yeastiness. Herbal and very spicy on the palate, yeasty and quite hoppy. Good balance - a tasty assertive farmhouse ale.
