Availability: Rotating

Notes/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 that's what you're after.

Thanks to fbm115 for sharing this one.

A - Cloudy beer with a nice head and tons of sediment

S - Barnyardy, slight hop aromas.

T - This one kind of plays with you a little because you're not sure if the flavors are coming from the brett or the saison. Pretty good, tons of funk and esters. Little hop presence.

M - High carbonation and medium-light in body.

D - Lots of alcohol, but can't detect it. Pretty good beer, but not world class.

I prefer this beer at a colder serving temp- at about 45°F. It brings out the spiciness, fruit, clove and mouth feel.

Poured a bright lemon color in a Pretty Things Balloon glass with a 2F head.

A complicated aroma- clove and fruit, noticeably lemon.

Great mouth feel: very carbonated in a way which enhances the overall drinkability.

Taste:Distinct fruit- citrus- a blend. Funk as the beer warmed up. I couldn't quite identify the citrus flavors. In this beer there is a unique taste combo of fruits.

Wonderfully finished by a spicy hoppiness.

Overall- quite distinctive. It's a Saison- masterfully brewed to bring out an outstanding flavor profile.

2014 vintage into my lucky Tabasco mug.

Look is pleasing, I'm glad this is a Farmhouse with some character. Bubbly, cloudy but bright. Head is very fluffy and dominates the glass but has nice latticing as it dissipates.

Smell is funky, but not as funky as I had hoped it would be. But BLVD isn't normally in the business of being funky. Mouthfeel is nothing special, it's not oily and it's not chunky so it's okay in my book.

Taste like very pleasing, there's the funk I was looking for in the smell. Citrus, and that taste you get in your mouth when you hit the rural, manure-plastered parts of Minnesota, but in a good way. As you have probably noticed, the 8.5% ABV is deceptive, as I am not even through two glasses yet and this review has pretty much gone pear-shaped (shout out to Paul Allen, the voice of the MN Vikings on KFAN! Shout out to The Common Man Dan Cole and Tenna-B on The Common Man Progrum. Shout out to Boulevard Brewing Company, get on that Tech N9ne beer, and soon! McThulhu goin hard on the beer review tip, watch out!)
