750ml corked & caged bottle into a Corsendonk tulip. The first bottle of beer over 16oz I've legally purchased in the state of Alabama. Free the Hops!
A: Hazy lemon yellow in color, with huge white soapy head. Sticks around to a thin finger top, with very nice lacing down the glass. Beautiful beer with all the carbonation bubbles rolling up.
S: Funky all over. Lemon, pepper, yeasty, odd spices, a light bready sweetness. Not overly potent, but definitely complex.
T: Super spicey. Pepper, lemony zest, tangy orange peel, and a big burst of brett on the finish. Even some light fruitier notes throughout. Complexity here is deep, but it doesn't get sweet with honey like some efforts at the style.
M: Carbonated. Really refreshing and dry on the palette. The pepperiness of it really hits you in the gums and on the top of the mouth throughout.
D: It's a fantastic Saison above all else. This bottle is fresh, so the Brett isn't overpowering but more of a strong accent note on the finish. Really impressive. Boulevard's smokestack series is one of the most underrated and continuously impressive groups of brews in the country.
