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.

Batch 2011-2, bottle number 22314. Enjoyed (immensely) on 20 August 2011, reviewed from notes.

Popped the cork and foamy liquid rose up out of the bottle like champagne. Pours a glowing light golden lemon yellow, clear except for the sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Massive frothy white head, with tons of carbonation visible in the glass. With the last pour from the bottle, there was so much carbonation that it was pulling flakes of caked yeast up to the surface. Great head retention and lacing. Doesn't get any better than this.

Smell is, as expected, heavy on the brett. Musty, barn-floor-like earthy funk. Citrus is there, too, mostly lemon zest but also an orangey sweetness. All of this works really well together, bringing a lightness and a depth that are just outstanding.

Taste is zippier, with more citrus and more snap than the smell. Deep pungent earthy funk, almost mushroomy.

Mouthfeel is quite light-bodied, with high carbonation. Crisp, quick finish. Flavors come through and then poof!, gone.

An outstanding saison, heavy on the funk, but with enough citrus and bite to even things out. Wish this was more readily available; as it is I may have to wait quite a while to drink it again.

2009 and 2011 vintages side by side

Both pour a clear orange. Almost a golden colour. A nice bit of white head. The 2009 has tons and tons of head. Smells a slight bit funky. The 2009 smells like something funky is really starting to take hold but it needs more time. Tastes sweet and thicker. a slight bit of booziness. Overall not the best saison I've ever had but enjoyable.

A - Pours a light straw color with 3 - 4 inches of billowy white head. About a finger of this survives and leaves tons of sticky lacing.

S - Strong, wild barnyard aromas arise from the get go which give way to lemons, spicy fruit, and tart apples.

T - Tart apples hit the palate up front along with zesty lemons. This moves to coriander and finishes with black pepper and a touch of sourness.

M - Medium-bodied with tons of carbonation. The finish has a nice boozy warmth.

O - This is a very nice summer beer from Boulevard. It drinks like a saison but has a very nice tart tinge from the brett that compliments the style nicely. This is a great beer to try if you are interested in getting into sours.

I held onto a bottle from '09 to compare with a freshy '11. Thanks John for making this happen.

Grades are based on the newer/fresher bottle

So, the beer is a straw yellow ale which appears to develop some haziness over time (possibly pour technique yielded the cloudiness). There are at least three fingers per pour, and at times overflowing for both years. Evidently carbonated, the '09 turned completely to foam on my first sip; subsequent sips were not as explosive. The nose on the elder was earthy, subtly sour and grainy: meh. The youth lacked the brett action provided it's lack of maturity, and was sweet, earthy, grassy and pleasant. Flavor wise, the elder of the two had picked up sooo much brett character, I couldn't get past it (dry, baking soda, bitter, hollow); this is a similar experience to my aged Orval experiences: just not for me. The '11 was really pleasant and highlighted the yeast and hops in the beer. Really noble and rustic. Finish on the old one was like a slime in my mouth, took several minutes of constant tongue action to get it off. The '11 had a semi dry finish.

Overall this is a decent saison fresh, but I fear I might have an aversion to such application of Brett. Not something I would seek, but can see why others dig it.

Thanks to SamuelJackson45 for sharing this 750ml 2011 bottle. Poured into a cervoise, this brew appears a lightly hazed yellow color. 3 fingers worth of white head appear across the top in a fluffy formation. A spotty and webbing pattern of lace clings all over the glass. A swirl brings back a finger's worth of fluff.

The smell of this brew initially is like farts. Sulfur mixed with bretty leather notes and some wild barnyard quality that gets exaggerated by a grain inclusion that is like straw. There is a tingly presence of alcohol that strikes the nose across the back. While the aroma is quite forward with Brett characteristics, I felt it was a little strange and didn't fully come together.

The taste is lightly fruity in nature but not sweet. Fruity notes of pear skins mix with grain tasting like straw, grassy dry hops and even more drying quality of leathery Brett. There is a mild peppery spice included along with clove and yeast. A mild lemony aftertaste is evident with a husky grain sweetness. While the nose was an awkward mix, the taste compensates.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest to high level of carbonation. Easy drinking for 8.5%. This is an interesting compilation of flavoring. The Brett is quite bold throughout which creates an interesting predicament; I don't know if aging this would make the brew evolve and become more enjoyable or if it will get completely dominated by Brett. Regardless, as-is the dryness an snap to the finish kept me interested, I'm sure I could have tackled the bottle myself. I really appreciate you sharing this one with me Leon.

Steady pour into a Lost Abbey Tulip.

Review from notes dated July 31st 2011

A: Dried yellow corn body with some lively carbonation. Seriously, but sizzle, crack, and bubble of this thing would rival most volcanoes. Soap sud small and medium sized bubbles join together for a sudsy rim ring. Tame head formation with almost no lacing to speak of.

S: Smell is buttery cream cheese bretty bread biscuits. Sharp red onions with a really fresh crisp bite. Vegetable bullion with a heavy broth character. Really just a sensational nose. The hopping comes through like the sharpness on aged cheddars. Couldn't be more pleased with the complexity to be had in this nose. Crisp clean scents.

T: Earthy stewed celery with a refreshing addition of honeydews with rinds attached. A zucchini bread crust with a parsley garnish compliments of the hops. Lots of light spritzes of earthiness in fountains of carbonation. Crazy earthy brett and crisp citrusy hop interaction to create crunchy fresh veggie flavors with some herb butter lingers. I'm in love with this beer.

M: Super alive full body with an old faithful geyser of a bubbly madness. There's actually a large bubble formation in the mouth that hits with such vibrancy that you'd swear there was fairy dust in your mouth. This is the perfect platter to serve savory veggies and breads. Melon rind notes compliment the humid yet drying mouth.

O: This is truly a sensational beer. The interactions between ingredients makes for a refreshingly unique crisp veggie and herby bread character. The flavors never appear naked. Lemony Kale, buttery watercress, sharp raw onions, creamed artichokes, and the list goes on. This is a fine dining pairing with infinite potential. Alone this is a fancy resturaunt appetizer, but aged this might be a delicious bretty feast. I'm so glad to have a bottle to age. This a magical earthy garden beer, where hops act as mentor to young funk.

2011

A- pours a clear pale yellow that leaves behind a big fizzy head which quickly disappears and leaves some decent lacing behind.

S- Citrusy hops, bit of belgian spice, some bready malts and brett.

T- I get a nice sharp hop bite mixed with lemons, brett and more of the bready malts. A little alcohol lingers, but great balance.

M- Great carbonation. Dry with a lingering astringent pine-soly impression... In a good way.

O- Awesome, a very good use of brett that helps to balance the beer overall without completely taking over. I would like to try this again with some age and compare.

Pours a golden hay color with lots of carbonation, two finger head an great lacing throughout. Aroma of citrus, funk and pepper. Taste follows the nose just intensified. This really showcases the Brett in the best way possible. This is so tasty and so refreshing, I would love to have the ability to drink this all the time. Saision Brett is an amazing beer!

Fresh bottle from the most recent batch. It's young enough that the hops are still bright and juicy.

Lemongrass, hay, black pepper, leather, and stockyard add underlying complexity to a sharp hit of resinous pine. Extremely dry with lively carbonation bringing out more complexity as it warms. Touch of tartness at the end. Balanced, elegant, yet packed with bold flavors. Ethanol is completely undetectable.

With 6 months of age pineapple, mango, and a subtle smokiness emerge as the fresh pine fades.

The best beer that's available to me on a regular basis.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Tulip. 2011 release.

Appearance: Hazy honey-gold with towering foamy head and some lacing.

Smell: Wet horse blanket Brett, lemon, orange, bread, clove and pepper.

Taste: Massive musty, funky Brett onslaught (and that's a good thing). The underlying Saison has nice citrus (lemon and orange), crackers & bread, clove, pepper and light banana.

Feel: High carbonation, very effervescent, medium-light body, bone dry finish.

Overall: This is a complex, fantastic creation, although I prefer the base Tank 7 Saison from Boulevard.

Aptly named, at the brett is center stage with this beer. Aggressive head that quickly settled down. Earthy, funky, tropical-fruity - the odd but interesting mix that brett brings to the table is abundant. Fairly crisp malt, but the yeast softens it a good deal. Alchohol is a bit too up front and asserts a harsh edge at the front.

2011 Release

A: Pours with a huge head over a clean, golden body with visible bubble trails. Recedes down to 1 finger with moderate lacing.

S: Moderate yeasty aroma, some spice, a little lemon, just a faint whiff of banana and seaweed. Not much that I'd associate with traditional brett aromas.

T: Moderate malt body, with slight residual sweetness on the front of the tongue, although the finish is dry and bitter. (A touch more bitter than I personally like my Saisons, although within range for the style.) Hints of brett, but not very much; just a mild earthiness.

M: Medium-light body, with good carbonation. Finishes dry and somewhat astringent.

O: Nice beer, quite drinkable through the course of an evening, although I lean towards saisons which are a little more light and refreshing.

I love saison brett, especially with a few years of aging on it, but I am going to review this year's batch fresh to see how it stacks up right as it is released.

Saison - Brett pours out a very hazy golden color into a snifter. I get four fingers of white head that fade relatively quickly and leave nice lacing.

The smell from this beer is slightly sharp bitter citrus hops, crisp and light cereal grains, with a slight mustiness that reminds you there is wild yeast present.

First sip is light hop astringency that comes across as light lemon flavor. I get earthy fresh rain notes from the brett, with a slightly bready malt finish. Slightly warming alcohol flavor lingers.

The mouth feel on the beer is unique in that it is substantial for a saison and bold, but extremely dry and highly carbonated. Refreshing on the tongue, not overdone.

Overall a really excellent beer even fresh. A few years on the this beer really seems to round out the astringency and bring a interesting sour citrus character into play. Even fresh as a hoppy, earthy big saison, this beer stands out as being great.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a slightly cloudy orangish golden color with over two fingers of white head that dissipates leaving a ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell: Quite herbal and a bit like hay. Some hints of lemon in there too.

Taste: A bit acidic, but the dominant flavor is herbal, hay, and has a slight musty quality to it. There are some citrus notes with a very acidic finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, champaign like carbonation, dry finish.

Overall: I wasn't impressed given the high expectations I had. I just assumed I would love this beer. The mix of flavors threw me off. I guess this goes to show why there is more than one beer, different strokes for different folks.

Lucky enough to grab a couple bottles this year. Reviewing one of these 2011s. Bottle #8573. Cork was tough to get out and hit the ceiling, narrowly avoiding my eye. Poured into a tulip at 45 degrees. I was worried about it gushing but only lost a small amount of head, didn't gush too bad.

Looks perfect in all ways. The color is a gorgeous light golden orange. A bright white head tops it off, I poured carefully but it was still about 3 finger widths tall. The head looks pillowy and like it's just floating right on top. Hundreds of tiny bubbles just flow up through the glass, crazier looking than even champagne. Great retention and lacing, literally couldn't improve the appearance one bit.

Smells soooo awesome it's hard to contain myself. Green apple, pear skin, green raisin, mango, coconut, traces of barnyard funk. Big trace note of lingering banana. Some little hints of peppery clove in the finish. I think this is one of the best beers I've ever smelled, and definitely tops for the style.

Tastes fantastic too. A lot of the flavors come right through from the aroma, apple and pear first, then on to peach and apricot. Moving on through we fade into a decent hit of barnyard funk, more character from the brett than I'd have thought since the beer hasn't had all that much time to develop.

A medium feel with a big effervescence coming through from the bubbles. The feel is pretty nice and oily swirling it around. Maybe it could be a tad more mellow and that in turn could make it feel more drinkable, but it's great.

Overall I love this beer so much. I think it's got everything I love out of the Saison style, with the complexity from the brett that just puts it over the top for me. It truly is an exceptional beer. Can't wait to revisit this in a couple years.

Served in a La Chouffe tulip.

A- Light golden, almost all head when poured. Lots of lacing left on the glass.

S- Citrus and spices primarily. Brett comes through as it warms and gives it a barnyard/funk aroma.

T- Tastes like a typical saison with a little Belgium pale ale mixed in, but then the Brett comes through and gives it a little sour, funky flavor at the finish.

M- Thin with a lot of carbonation. Bitter and funk leaves you with a dry mouth feel.

O- Kind of torn with this one. The funky aroma at first smell got my hopes up, but the sour didn't really come through in the taste.

Poured into a St. Arnold’s tasting glass, thanks to texasclimber for sharing this one

Appearance: Very pale yellow, close to white, with a very fluffy white head about two inches high with apparent lively carbonation.

Aroma: An elegant mix of fruity aromas burst from my glass. There is not apparent brett funk, yet you can tell it is there if you know what you are looking for. The brett gives off more fruity aromas instead. There are tropical fruit notes and citrus mixed with the typical peppery yeasty notes.

Taste: Bready, yeastsy, peppery, citrusy and fruity, I’m not sure how many other adjectives I can use to describe the taste.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, clean and refreshing. Very dry finish and high carbonation with a light body make this a definite easy drinking beer.

Overall: I was shocked with how much I enjoyed this beer. If you can find it I would highly recommend picking it up.

From my Libbey Embassy Royale Poco Grande tulip.

Appearance: Pale straw/golden in color. Expected more haziness, but the first pour has excellent clarity. Subsequent pours get progressively hazier, and the last I couldn't see my hand through the glass. Soft, pillowy white head which takes its time settling. As the beer clears its way farther down the cup, the white foam utterly clings to the cup; excellent retention.

Smell: Slight white pepper, but very apparent funk of straw/dirt. (The earthy character I expected.) If you scraped a horses hoof of dirt on the underside and then smelled it.... divided by two. Some citrus, rather musty.

Taste: WOW. What a pick for my first brett beer. This pleasant, but unmistakably sharp bite of this beer just kicks you in the mouth. The phrase I've heard, "barnyard funk", is extremely appropriate. This flavor is, however, difficult to understand until you experience it. Wonderfully complex, with an array of flavors beginning to end. As for ABV... what ABV? Highly drinkable. Bit yeasty, and slight apple tartness. The funk dominates waaay more than the faint tart qualities.

Mouthfeel: Fuller than I had expected, but still light and appropriate for the style. Very appropriate carbonation, so refreshing yet flavorful.

Overall: I expected a lot from this beer and it lived up to expectation 100%. Simply one of the best examples for the style, in my experience. Elegantly & unapologetically funky.
