I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Hazy golden color with two fingers worth of foamy head. Nice retention with a fair amount of clinging lace.

Smell- Piney and floral hops with a hint of coriander and citrus.

Taste- Mellow hop bitterness with some coriander and sage notes.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with an average amount of prickly carbonation. Slightly dry finish.

Overall- While I enjoyed this beer, I liked the original version ( Collaboration No.2) better. The sage is more pronounced this time around and this would have been better in the summer not the fall.

Enjoyed out of a brown 750 mL bottle marked batch number RB13249-1, best by date of 06-2014. Poured into the Speigelau special IPA glass.

Appearance - Body is a mix of brass and gold highlights, completely translucent allowing me to see the steady steam of carbonation bubbles rising up from the laser etching on the bottom of the glass. The head is a pillowy froth about three fingers thick the color of bone. The head slowly dissipates to a film about a quarter-finger thick across the entire surface of the beer, which grows into sticky lacing creeping up the side of the glass like ivy. The lacing sticks around, like leopard print mottling.

Smell - Witbier spiciness from coriander and orange peel mixes with more herbal notes and lemongrass from the hops. Elements of grapefruit and citrus zest as well as an underlying bed of fruity phenols from the Belgian yeast.

Taste - Here, the witbier characteristics take a back seat to the more herbal American hop profiles. Rather than tasting coriander, it seems to impart a pastry-like quality to the other flavors. Sounds weird, but surprisingly enough it really works quite well. Lingering baby and dandelion green bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied and carbonation on the heavy side of moderate, which is pretty typical for these Boulevard 750s. Refreshing and dry finish.

Overall, a wonderful beer and perhaps my favorite take on the fledgling "white IPA" style. Can't go wrong with the original, I suppose. I truly hope that Reboot is a beer that Boulevard decides to produce annually in their Smokestack series, much like Grainstorm, Harvest Dance, and Reverb. Very tasty.

Poured into a Chuckanut pint glass. Pours a light golden amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of Belgian and earthy spices, floral hops, Belgian yeast. Flavor is Belgian yeast, coriander and sage, mild malt, grassy hops; the profile leans towards a mild tripel probably because of the spicing, but I detect a mild funkiness. Nice medium body, lightly creamy, nice mouth feel. The Belgian spices and farmhouse yeast flavors dominate this over the hops, which are present, but subdued. There is a lingering grassy hop finish, but not much aromatic hops present. I liked this hybrid of Belgian tripel spicing and light American hopping. Interesting and refreshing.

A - Pours a bright hay/golden color with an eggshell head that has good retention/lacing.

S - Coriander or sage spices abound, followed with a bit of musk (WTF?), piney & floral hops and a belgianesque smell.

T - Hops and sage/clove/coriander that move towards a floral aspect with a belgian hop bite in the end.

M - Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Has a smooth body.

O - It's a refreshing beer to drink. Not a style I go for often, but one I can appreciate.

i picked up a growler of this today, it pours a nice clear golden color with a small foamy head.
S- Smells of a light citrusy hop smell.
T- I have read some of the reviews and i guess my palate is a tad funky, but on first taste the piney and citrus blend mix to taste to me almost banana-y. The finish has a nice citrusy flavor with a bit of sweetness. A little odd, but when i tasted it at the growler shop, i had to have more of this. It is enjoyable and very drinkable.
M- Smooth and clean, good carbonation, leaves a small citrusy aftertaste that lingers for just long enough to make you want to take another sip to refresh it.
O- this is a very tasty beer, not the best, but then again, if you see it in stock, its definately one you should try out. good flavors, not too aggressive, easy drinking. i have no problem recomending this beer.
