Wow. Batch 2009-1. Poured into a tulip.
Pours a crystal clear lemon yellow with honeyed notes. Bubbly playful effervescence. A huge unstoppable mounding white head and plenty of sticky lace.
Aroma is bright fruit with a nice funk kick. Tart lemon, and a perfume hint that is alluring rather than off putting. Taste follows, bright, flavorful with a nice funk.
Nice light mouthfeel, the dryness comes a little late in the finish.
A really nice saison. Tasty.

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!)
