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.
