4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours hazy light orange. Aroma is grapefruit and hops. Taste is clean grassy hops up front with funky sweet Belgian yeast on the back. A little thin, but not out of character for this style and well balanced with the ABV. A great choice if you gotta have hops but don’t want the heavier malt of an IPA. This beer introduced me to Boulevard a year or two ago and I’ve been steadily impressed by them. For a Kansas City brewery to get into the hyper-competitve Seattle beer market is no small accomplishment.

Huge persistent rocky white. Great lacing. Slightly hazy straw colour. Big tropical, citrus, almost seems like there is a Bretty character. Big juicy flavour. Med-light body. Crisp and dry finish. Very enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opaque, couleur jus de poires, avec une carbonatation costaude, et un nez de pêches, d’abricots, de gomme balloune, de bananes, de mangues et de gingembre. La bouche est piquante, passablement poivrée, sèche mais pourtant ronde, avec une chaleur d’alcool qui retentit à l’arrière. Se rapprochant plus d’une saison impériale, son alcool non nécessaire la sabote un peu, mais sinon, quelle merveilleuse bière, absolument irréprochable sur tous les autres plans.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy orange. Big, bubbly head tightens up to a thin, sticky film. Nice, sweet grainy bread on the nose. Banana toffee and fruity hop. Taste is soft sweet, turning zesty, chewy bitter. Full body. Soft carbonation. Finishes long, zesty bitter. Spicy, dry close. Nice hopped up saison.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow with a two finger, white head and fine sediments. Aroma has big notes of bubble gum, citrus, candy sugar, and tropical fruits. Taste is balanced. Non sweet candy sugar, citrus, bubble gum, tropical fruits, slight pine and resin, and a drawn out, mildly bitter ending. Medium body with a medium-high carbonation. Slightly syrupy/resiny mouth feel with a dry finish. Overall a nice saison. Classic flavours with some American hop notes to mix it up.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is complex malty Saison, big bubblegum. Appearance is yellow orange hazy with decent frothy off white head, looks like a Saison. Taste is sweet malt bubblegum forward, followed by a surprisingly pronounced hop bitterness, some peach, citrus and peppery hop aroma. I think there is some extra complexities here, but the hop bitterness is blinding them. Palate is medium, hint of alcohol.... bubblegum malt lingers. Overall a pretty nice beer, but too much hop bitterness. Bitterness is blinding flavors that I think would otherwise be huge and unique. Still a fun beer and we got it at an excellent price. Worth a try.
