Well my beer buddy from work and I finally made it through the smokestack series at the Brewhaus.
A - Deep burnished bronze with peach-orange highlights. This one is cloudy, deep, and solid looking with a massive four finger head of solid white foam. Lots of lace is left in the Duvel glass the waitress gave me to pour this one into. A really pretty beer for sure.
S - Fresh hops mingle with deep caramel candy and confectioner's sugar. This smells sweet, outdoorsy, and fresh...I could wash my clothes in this stuff.
T - Like the nose, this one is fresh and yeasty with big hop notes all over the place. Worther's Original candy and some fresh juicy fruit notes combine with the hay-like hops and big time booze to make a deceivingly fresh beer that will knock your socks off.
M - Full bodied and boozy with aggressive carbonation that never seems raspy, but keeps the beer lively and fun despite the heavy body and high ABV. Finishes hot and hoppy with a lingering caramel note.
D - Probably my favorite of the series, vying for first place with the Sixth Glass quad. This is outstanding beer that I wouldn't hesitate to drink again... despite the high price (which really isn't that high if you calculate how many equivalent 12 oz 4% ABV beers are in this heavy hitting brew...you really are getting some bang for your buck).

This is probably the best beer Boulevard makes. Their Belgian born brew master brings the right amount of tradition to the sometimes overly innovative American brew culture.
Appearance- Poured into a tulip glass with a stark white head, the beer is straw colored with a slight orange hue. Overall a gorgeous beer.
Smell- Bright citrus fruit notes. Mild smell of hay. Alcohol is present.
Taste- Alcohol is on the front. Fairly sweet with mild grapefruit notes. Apple notes and mild floral aftertaste.
Mouthfeel- Very carbonated. A little dry. Has a mild acidity.
This is my go-to pizza beer. It tastes incredible with pizza.
