4/5 rDev -3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass.
APPEARANCE: golden straw color with two finger head, highly carbonated, excellent retention and some lacing on the glass. Very nice looking beer.
SMELL: funky, pepper, pears, bread.
TASTE: the taste follows the nose, funky, pepper, pears, bread and tastes better as it warms. The hops are not overly assertive, nicely balanced, the alcohol 8.5% is perceptible.
PALATE: higher carbonation, creamy, medium body for the style.
OVERALL: this is a good Saison but not the best I've had, solid but not spectacular. Boulevard is an excellent brewery and I'll be trying more soon.
Serving type: bottle

This saison swings more toward the French style. Greater clarity than the Belgian type. Good bitterness, perhaps about 50 to 60 IBUs, with a mild Goldings nose and some more citrusy type of hop, like Columbus. Good hop complement to the more orange citrus profile of what I'm guessing is a French saison yeast, like Wyeast 3711. Sweet start and sweet finish, no tartness or barnyard funk, saved from stickiness by the high bitterness levels. Also, a bit of alcohol on the finish. Thick, long-lasting head. Generally refreshing as a strong French saison should be.
Serving type: on-tap
