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.

I'm a huge fan of Tank 7 so I know Boulevard does the saison style right. Excited for this one.

A: Beautiful straw yellow, crystal clear, thick pillow of a white head.

S: NAILED this. Smells like a freaking barn! Some citrus notes and some light malts are discernible as well. Exceedingly complex.

T: Spice hits me first- pepper and others I can't quite pin down. Some apple, possibly pineapple, lots of citrus, and a great malty back bone. Throughout this a fantastic funky farmhouse taste was present.

M: Full bodied and creamy, very low carbonation. It could have been a little more carbonated to be perfect. Still a great creaminess was achieved, which allows all of the flavors to really shine. ABV is hidden perfectly.

O: Just an excellent, complex saison. Would not be out of place during a fine dinner, or out in the backyard on a lawnmower. I would have liked a bit more carbonation to lighten it up, but I appreciated the complexity from every sense.
