BOTTLE #09666 of 11950
A lightly hazy golden color with a touch of burnt orange. Massive bubbly head that leaves a decent foamy layer. Good retention and good, but spotty, lacing.
Man, there is no hiding that brett yeast in the nose. Little bit funky, in a good way. Nice level of tropical fruits mixed with a touch of citrus oils. Nice spicey pepperey smell. Saaz hops, maybe? Nice grains and floral notes.
Very nice, complex, yet attractively inviting nose.
Brett funkiness is upfront. Some sweet citrusy flavors. Pineapples, pears, and green apples, mostly. Decent sized spicey hop bite. Floral notes mix with a slight touch of earthiness.
Good mouthfeel. Medium body with a decent creaminess. Would like it better if it were a little bit creamier feeling.
Very drinkable, overall. Would be a great summer brew, I believe.
Boulevard continues to impress with their Smokestack Series (this one is #5 in the series).
Hope I can let a bottle or two of this lay for 6 months to a year, as I think it will be even better then.
