COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison-Brett, based on our very popular Tank 7, is assertively dry hopped, then bottle conditioned with various yeasts, including Brettanomyces, a wild strain that imparts a distinctive earthy quality. Though this farmhouse ale was given three months of bottle age prior to release, further cellaring will continue to enhance the Brett character, if thats what youre after.

Thanks to Sprinkle for this beer. This is a great beer. Nice hoppy beer with tons of yeast and floaties in glass as I poured. Taste is very refreshing. Awesome beer Mike, Thanks

Pours hazy yellow with a huge fluffy white head and a citrus and spice aroma. There is a pale malt and earthy yeast flavor that is spicy with a fair amount of hop bitterness. Complex, tasty and refreshing.

750ml bottle. Pours hazy yellow with large fluffy white head. Aromas of lemon, wheat, belgian yeast, and some brett. Flavor of sour lemon, yeast, spices, wheat, and brett. Thought there would be some more funk or yeast. Very delicate brew and a good saison. Pretty solid overall.

My first rating in 7 months. What foolishness conspires here, my friends? I put such things behind me: this seems a fitting beer to begin again. Pours a slightly hazy straw with airy, snow-white head. Initial sharp clove nose clears with a little swirling, and the happy aromas begin: the smell of fresh rain on parched red earth, flowery lemon notes, menthol, black pepper, ripe pears. Bright and peppery on the palate, but a certain viney silkiness persists. Minty lemon flavor, briskly hoppy, dry with just a hint of melon sweetness in the finish. Beautiful, sophisticated beer. I do wish for just a little less alcohol.

Not really sure if some age would help this, but it wasnt at all funky. I was expecting some real funk out of this bottle. Poured into my glass, it had some sediment floating, which I liked and that gave it some haziness to it. Had a strange bubblegum flavor that lead into a spice flavor and finished pretty clean. Carbonation was right on, but I wasnt impressed with this Saison.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 9, 2010
bottle thanks to pepsican, pours piss yellow with a tall white head. Sour lemon and hay with some funkyness in the aroma. Flavor is straight bubblegum and lemon peel with some dry yeast notes. This wasnt as funky as I thought it would be, perhaps its a fresher bottle.

750mL bottle, 2008 batch 1, courtesy of maximum12 poured into a tulip. Massive pop when the cork opens up and no surprise when the pour generates a gigantic fluffy white head that goes absolutely nowhere. The body is a slightly hazy golden yellow and as bubbly as champagne. The aroma is extremely refreshing and bright with lemon zest, Belgian yeast and some spices as well. The brett adds some complexity but doesnt dominate and its still more citrusy than earthy. The taste is even more refreshing but with a more prevalent brett presence. The initial taste is off lemon zest and hops with the Belgian yeast forming a solid barckbone before the finish brings the earthy funk to the forefront. To say the mouthfeel is lively would be a massive understatement. Crazy amoiunt of carbonation, maybe too much though it doesnt take away from things. This is definitely one of the better saisons Ive ever tasted, extremely refreshing but also very complex. A home run from Boulevard.

Pour: Cloudy, golden. Huge pillowy white head, long lasting. Wonderful complex aroma, with bananas, yeast, lemon, vanilla. Luxurious on the tongue, lively carbonation. Initially, a sweet, lightly sour taste. A long finish of hops. Very nice, would drink again.

Bottle-2008 Batch 1. I have had this beer on numerous occasions over the past few years, but never rated it, so im rating it from my almost 2 yr old bottle. Pours hazy orange with a huge froathy big-bubbled head and effervescent carbonation!. aromatics everywhere! WOW-this thing smells wonderful! Brett yeast, sweet citrus, mint, lemongrass, chamomille, and light woodsy note. When cold, things were not very good-astringent and harsh, but really opens up as it warms with notes of lemongrass, brett, sweet citrus, and pale malts. my only gripe is the malt profile here gets a little mushy flavored on the finish. Palate was much harsher cold-big carbonation tingle on the tongue but as it warmed, things got better-carbonation was not so harsh and the flavors opened up a bit more.
