Originally, I enjoyed this on tap this past summer at Jack's Stack, a local BBQ place here in KC - loved it then, so I'm really looking forward to it now.
I visited three different stores to find this one on release day, but I've got something to celebrate - more on that (much) later.
Wow that's a heady beer - I'm writing this to give my initial smooth pour a chance to die down. Two-and-a-half fingers worth of fluffy white head, anyway. After it finally died down, it left behind a thick lace - more like drapes, blocking the view from the outside.
What lies underneath is a beautiful golden yellow, sending small bubbles of carbonation skyward.
Earthy, with a grand dose of funk on the nose, underscored by a bit of lemon and some of that horse-blanket that's usually found in these funky beers. Really pleasant.
Similar to their other saisons as it has a light bit of florals and maybe some fruit. In contrast, you definitely pick up the hops here - added bitterness and a bit spicy in the mouth.
A really mild and smooth funk in the mouth - that's pretty awesome. Seldom have I had a beer that was so subtle in delivering such flavors.
I'm trying not to be a "homer" here, but I love this beer. A unique and enjoyable beer - it's nice to get truly excited about drinking a beer. Thanks BLVD for having a "persnickity" fermenter.

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.
