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.

Looking at the good reviews that this beer gets, and being a fan of sours, it seems that I must have got a bad bottle.

The other reviews had me optimistic about this... maybe it's a one-off, but to be honest - this beer was horrible. Something like transmission fluid with smelly socks kind of describes it. Purchased at Bev-Mo in champagne style bottle. Very expensive, very poor. Bummed. I have always enjoyed Boulevard's brews... until now.

A - Tons of head, lots of lacing. Murky amber color.

S - Spices, citrus fruits, sweet fruits, malts, watermelon?

T - Malty on the front, bitter fruity aftertaste.

M - Creamy; medium to high burn from alcohol and carbonation.

O - Great beer; tons of favor, strong smell. Not very bitter.

2013 vintage. Pours a hazy gold with a huge white head. Lemon, biscuity malt, with a touch of funk on the nose. Hoppy, lemon, spice on the palate that finishes dry and slightly funky. Light bodied with great carbonation. Overall, the word that best describes this beer is complex.
