Last December, Sporting Kansas City captured the MLS Cup in dramatic fashion. As a partner of the team, Boulevard Brewing Company wanted to do something special to commemorate this achievement from the very moment the last penalty kick by Real Salt Lake caromed off the cross bar. Now, with a small opening in its brewing schedule, the Kansas City brewery will make Sporting Kansas City Championship Ale, a limited release beer from its Smokestack Series to honor Sporting KC’s hard work and victory.
Sporting Kansas City Championship Ale will be a crisp, refreshing Saison-style ale, featuring late hopping with Mandarina Bavaria, a new German hop with distinct tangerine and citrus flavors. Similar to other one-off releases in Boulevard’s Smokestack Series, only a limited amount of beer can be produced and released. The brewery plans to distribute about 2,000 cases of the 750mL bottles throughout the Kansas City area.

750 ml bottle. Potentially, no I admit it, I chugged beer out of the bottle. The aroma was light dough and spices. A fresh citrus nose, more bready sweetness, light spices. Very fresh and tasty.

750mL bottle, pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out farmhouse yeast and light stone fruits. Flavour is along the same lines, with farmhouse yeast upfront, with secondary subdued stone fruit notes. Nothing overly special, but well-balanced. Okay.

750ml bottle pours out hazy straw topped with a white head. Nose is spice belg yeast citrus and some clove. Taste is more of the spice citrus and some nice clove touch.

It poured a cloudy pale golden color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, yeast, spice and malts. The taste was similar to the aroma with lemon, fruit, yeast, spice, malts and grass. Good stuff.

Bottle shared by adnielsen. Thanks Aaron! Pours a clear golden color with white head. Yeasty, spicy, straw aromas. Spicy, herbal, straw, slight grass flavors. Nothing crazy, just a very good, clean beer.

Bottle in Mobile shared with jcnielsen for his wedding. Thanks m@! Pours a clear yellow appearance with a fluffy white head. White pepper, pear, apple, flowers, and soft yeast in the nose. Effervescent. Light body. Light sweetness. Moderately herbal hoppy bitterness. Soft, subtle flavor. Clean and not pushy. Nice.

A very decent saison. Golden appearance and somewhat dry. I saved this beer after I picked it up early in 2014. I wanted to use this beer to celebrate a 2014 victory, but it wasn’t going to happen this year. Very tatsy nonetheless.
