4/5 rDev -7%
Slightly hazy golden pour with a foamy two-finger white head. Nice slightly sour aroma of yeast and lemon. Really nice flavor of pepper and yeast. Can also taste a bit of biscuit and clove. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation. Finishes dry and crisp.

2013 dated bottle
Pours a very nice gold color with a huge white head. The cork nearly flew out of the bottle when I opened it, although it has been sitting for a couple of days. The head seems to be in no hurry to go away.
Has a sweet floral scent at first, then becomes a bit grassy with hints of fresh hay. It has the outdoor smell I associate with this style.
Starts out a bit fruity, maybe apple and pear notes. There is some spice there, seems to be pepper like. Has a bit of grass and earth notes to it. Finishes a bit dry with some lingering hop bitterness.
Goes down smooth and easy, moderate carbonation feel.
This is my first experience with brett, and it is a positive one. I was worried this beer would be too funky, but it seems to keep that well in check. The brett adds some interesting flavor notes to the beer, it is earthy and funky, but in a good way. It is very drinkable for the abv, and is yet another example of why I think Boulevard is one of the few US breweries that gets the Belgian style of beers right.
