On tap; pour is cloudy golden with a nice proper white head. Sticky lacing and average retention in this tulip. Nice Belgian yeast note on the nose; the flavor profile and aromas are nearly authentic by my estimation, which I think is your biggest issue with american iterations in general. Peach, lemongrass, and spices are present, with that farmhouse quality you would expect. slight bitter tinge at the end.

Much thanks to Belgianbeergirl for this one. Pours out a moderate straw color with a thin white head. Aroma is of sweet fruity esters and some spice. Taste is of some apple, pear, yeast, light pepper, and some moderately bitter hop notes. Top notch Saison.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2011 As soon as I opened the bottle, I was hit with the delicious smell of tropical fruits, primarily banana. I’d be hard pressed to find a better smelling, inviting beer. The color is a cloudy straw with a white head that lingers around a half inch. The taste is sweet and fruity up front and finishes a little bitter and piney. It is a delicious beer, though a little sweet and pricey to drink all the time. Still, this is my high water mark, the beer against which I will measure all others.

gold pour with a massive foamy white head
aroma is lemony grassy, earthy, very appetizing.
flavour is way more earthy funk than I was expecting. Lively carbonation and tangy/tart in the cheeks. lemony with some herbal tones.

Very fruity and hops galore. Has a long ever after and a nice buzz. A little spicy, but over all very fun.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a thick, billowy head. Very complex aroma, lemon zest, yeast, spices. The flavor is very good. It has a nice spicy bitterness to it. Medium body, very lively carbonation. A good beer.

Very minty and unfiltered, not very familiar with saisons, but this is pretty good.

From the tap, a tasty brew to quaff if there ever was one. Single Wide is really good, great hops, great citrus flavors, good finish to it. Tank 7 goes the extra mile. Had a glass full and it tasted like God brewed the stuff. Boulevard gets an A+ for Tank 7.

bottle pours cloudy yellow orange with big fluffy white head. Rich, complex aroma, with some lemon funk, sourdough, body is medium and carbonated to a tingly effect, slightly creamy, smooth with 8% masked. Lightly spiced in a subtly bitter way, thyme, some bleu cheese in the finish. Nicely done.

Pours a orange tine of yellow with a one finger head. Nose is typical saison with a kick more of citrus and yeast. Taste of fruit and yeast. A very drinkable beer and one of the better Saisons I have had.
