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.

Bottle shared by joetheyounger. Pours a cloudy straw with a rocky off white head. Aroma is barnyard with some bubblegum, fresh fruits, and some phenolic notes. Flavor is slightly tart and quite funky with more phenolic characteristics and some spice and bubblegum. Light bodied with aggressive carbonation.

Yellow with big white head. Resin and slight hay aroma. Spicy, tangy, pretty refreshing. Mouthfeel is tingly and bright. These Boulevard series beers have all proven to be very very good.

Straw color. White head. Funky aroma with dirt, hay, barnyard aromas and hints of lemon. Flavor is dry and earthy, a bit of wet hay and some great bretty notes. Good stuff. This will age for years IMO.

sleestak (226) - Williamston, Michigan, USA - JAN 18, 2010
7fity of the 2009. Pours hazy straw yellow with a huge pillowy head. Aroma is brett-a-riffic with citrus and soap. Flavor is grassy and lemony, and definitely brings the funk. Dry finish and light on the standard saison spiciness. Effervescent carbonation and light mouthfeel. World class.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2010
Bottle. Pale hazy orange color with a big ivory-colored head. Good retention, chunky lacings. The aroma is clean and refreshing with notes of lemon peel, tangerines, wheat crackers, mild brett and well integrated hop notes. The taste is very refreshing with a gentle sweetness and a mildly tart complement. A light malty backbone is coupled with lovely fruit notes of lemon and tangerine. Clean brett aromas and well integrated hop notes. The finish is dry with a light bitterness to it and tart citric notes. No sign of the alcohol. Moderate body, effervescent character. A lovely beer - refreshing and easy to drink but still lots of character.

deyholla (10775) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Bottle. Poured a hazy gold with small particles and a nice thick white head. Aroma was quite earthy with some floral and citrus notes. Flavor had notes of flowers and fruity and a bit of underlying earthiness and spice. It was quite dry on the tongue.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2011 Batch 2008-1 bottle thanks to soonah!
Crazy foamy white head atop hazy gold-straw colored body that is heavily carbonated. Almost no saison left in the nose, just full on yet balanced brett in strong citrus, light hay, and a creamy note. The flavor is similar but dryer, hints of pepper and yeast in the finish to smooth the brett out. Lightly biting body, hints of soap and the brett goes into overdrive as it warms. Should have drank this sooner for more balance and nuance. Multiple samples later and I like this way more.

frizzzzle (76) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Pours a light yellow, effervescent, with an explosion of frothy white head. Smells of tart apples and a funky musk. Flavor is pleasant and more mild than expected. Its mostly sweet and faintly tart with a light grassy hop background. Despite the bubbles on the pour, the carbonation isnt overwhelming at all. Finishes slightly sticky, but its by no means a heavy beer. Easily drinkable.
