Tap, pours yellow. Peppers and spices. Very nice beer for a summers afternoon. It lingers, perhaps too long but money well spent.

In Chicago. Pours bright yellow with foamy head that leaves a lot of lacing. Nose of pepper and spice. Taste is classic farmhouse ale - peppery, lots of carbonation. Good example of style.

This is an excellent strong Belgian thatís a bit on the hoppy and spicy side. It is a slightly hazed golden orange w/ a very long lasting head of rocky, fine-bubbled foam. The nose on this is quite hoppy and could give some pretty decent IPAs a run for their money in that regard. It is a lavendar character mostly and some citrus. A lot of this comes from a spicy yeast as well from the hops and this yeast hops and I always enjoy when brewers can get these two elements to play together nicely as Boulevard has done here. This a strong beer and relatively juicy and full bodied but nice and dry so it drinks a little lighter than one might expect given the gravity, which is in part due to its carbonation. Once tasted, the focus shifts from the hops more to the yeast and a bit of fresh cracked malt. It finishes dry w/ a light lingering bitterness and spice across the tongue. This is definitely one of the better American influenced Belgians and I am really glad to see brewers in the US are starting to consistently do these well.

Not bad. I see what they did with this one. They upped the abv and went easy on a tame saison yeast strain to make it doable for everyone. My only gripe is in this case I like the funky, eartht, lick a rusty barn funkiness to belgo/french saisons. Taste and aroma are clean and nice, The palate is smooth and easy going. Not much funk but they make their point. Overall not too shabby, A really good offering for newcomers to the funky brew style scene

The very best American version of the Belgian style Saison. An instant favorite...probably swaps any given year with Funkwerks Saison. Cannot go wrong choosing either any time on any occasion.
