4.73/5 rDev +10%
2013 Vintage with a best-by of 2/16.
A: Pale yellow, light color. Pours with a huge creamy white head.
S: An incredible smell coming from this beer. Immediately the notes from the Brett shine along with some citrusy/lemony notes. Getting a flowery pollen type smell. That familiar "barn-yard" profile is also present.
T: Bone dry saison, similar to their Tank 7. Citrusy with a huge load of Brett. The alcohol is extremely hidden for being 8.5%.
M: Extremely carbonated but I think it really works well for this beer.
O: A fantastic beer. I've been recently getting into "Brett-ed" beers and this one has to be the best so far. Will have to stock up on these before they're gone, highly recommended.

4.26/5 rDev -0.9%
Appearance: hazy golden. The head is massive. Big, foamy off white and impressive.
Smell: all kinds of things happening here. Earthy, grassy, lemony richness.
Taste: wow. All the flavors in the nose plus a nice, gentle sourness in the finish.
Overall: I go for the big stouts and barleys but I gotta say, this is something I could get used to. Well done.

Had on-tap at Westville Pub Asheville. Served in a 10 oz cocktail glass.
A- Pours a light golden color with a 1/4 inch white head that retains decently before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of sheer surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.
S- Musty Brett that's not overbearing along with some wheat.
T- Flavor is that of mild green olive from the Brett and some fruitiness from the wheat and Saison yeast. The Brett is very toned down but there's just enough to keep a Brett fiend like me satisfied while still not overwhelming someone that's not used to it.
M- A light prickle from the carbonation and Brett is right on. Medium carbonation and a light body.
O- A nice, easygoing Brett beer that's basically Tank 7 improved.

Bottle from early 2013, cold and poured into glass.
Fairly clear and golden color, straw 3 inch head with small bubbles rushing from bottom of the glass
Smells of upfront funk, barnyard brett and a bit of citrus
Taste initial citrus leading to earthy tones and a heavy brett funkiness. one of the most funk brews i've had in a while
Feel is refreshing and semi dry with a crisp finish

2013 vintage. Found sitting in a random bottle shop.
A: Golden orange (completely clear on the first pour, swirled for the second to make it hazy) with the biggest head I've seen on a beer. Super careful pouring still created a fluffy white head that's not going anywhere. Looks pretty good.
S: Funky. Wet sock (in a good way) giving way to apple, pear, pepper, and yeasty sweetness.
T: Take the advice of another reviewer a couple down from me. Let this warm up, and swirl the bottle (not too hard, it'll explode out the top of the bottle). At first I was underwhelmed with the beer because of the overpowering Brett. After swirling and warming, much more of the pear and apple come through with just the right amount of funk at the back end.
M: Sweet and prickly, typical Belgian dryness at the back of the mouth.
O: At first, between the giant head and the huge amount of funk, I wasn't impressed. Halfway through the bottle, this beer is exploding with flavor. I'd have to be in the mood for it, but I'd buy it again. Boulevard never lets me down.
