Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. III Issue I:
It seems Brett is making a home in nearly every adventurous brewery in the US. Look back a decade ago and most brewers would not even think of letting this tasty little nasty near their tanks.
This beer must get daily calls from Brussels wanting its lace back, perhaps the best lacing and head retention we've seen from an American-brewed beer. Slightly hazy, pale yellow-orange color. Smells of apple skin, musty basement, wild herbs and animal feed grain. Heavenly smoothness from a light, fluffy body. Flavors range from lemongrass to apple cider, hop oil to medicinal herbs, cracker graininess to faint black pepper. Needless to say, very complex. Alcohol drops in with that black pepper spice and some pear-like fruitiness, yet shows little warmth from its size, just more of a clean breath of alcohol. Finishes bone dry with some tart remnants.
Brett & Boulevard, job well done. The massive complexities hide its strength, yet it stays dangerously quaffable.
