4.1/5 rDev -1.4%
P: Pours a beautiful gold with mass amounts of floating yeast adorned with a full finger of frothy white head.
Retention is good.
S: Fresh grapefruits, apricots, lemon, floral and spicy. Timid funk and rose alcohol.
T/M: Taste follows the nose with a bigger alcohol flavor, aged oak, and aggressive coriander, black pepper and a touch of cayenne in the back of the throat. Finish starts wet then gradually dries with acidic citrus, white grapes and wood lingering on the palate.
O: Stellar offering from Boulevard. This is a definite "go to beer" for this style. The alcohol could be a little too aggressive but is complimented well enough not to ruin it. I could drink this all the time and would of the wife would allow it.

750 ml bottle served in a snifter.
pours a golden-yellow tone with a bit of haze, yields a big, almost 3" head that dissipates to a lasting 1" or so. solid lacing. great looking saison. really good nose on this one. herbal, fruity notes with a lot of spice and just a touch of funk.
flavor mostly follows the nose. citrus (grapefruit, lemon), spice, and the herbal quality headline the show. while perhaps not truly spectacular, this is very tasty. medium-bodied mouth feel with some lively carbonation.
overall, a pretty fantastic saison. boulevard has proven a welcome edition to the boston market. looking forward to exploring more of their offerings.

4.48/5 rDev +7.7%
Appearance: Pours a cloudy light golden color with a tall fluffy head that has excellent retention and lacing.
Aroma: Citrusy, with grass, herbs and stone fruit.
Taste: Bread and honey with hops notes of grapefruit, apricot, and floral with hints of pepper.
Texture: Crisp with a dry finish, good carbonation.
Drinkability: The 8% ABV will sneak up on you if aren't careful, but pairs nicely with a grilled steak.
Presentation: Poured from a 12oz bottle in to a Tulip glass that came with the gift set.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.
A real nice buttery shining lemon gold, wit nice rising carbonation on a classic rocky white head. Clumpy and lacing with soapy retention. Orb glowing with hues and bulbs of light in places, great looking brew.
Real wondeful light floral sense, slight malty dry grain backbone to it. Sort of an interesting non diacetyl butter angle to this too, graden green fresh. Very solid and nice.
A very refreshing brew. Palate hits solidly with a good malt almost Belgian tripel feel. Finishes semi dry with a mix of honey sweetness and floral aftertastes. Carbonation seems just about right to cut through the palate making it interesting. Faint pepper like finish somewhat.
Overall a real solid saison. This brewery makes some pretty solid beer.

A - A very clear straw-yellow, with pillowy snow white head supported by the streaming carbonation from the etching in the bottom of the glass. The foam is positively chunky and it's leaving heavy lacing as it very slowly recedes.
S - The smell is pretty subtle... bready malt with a bit of sweet fruitiness and maybe some lemony tartness.
T - Pleasantly sour-apple tart, with some fruity esters and a touch of funk, over a simple but well-done malt backbone.
M - Relatively thin mouthfeel. The prickly carbonation plays quite well with the tart apple.
Overall, this is quite good. It would be tasty any day, but it really hits the spot on this hot, humid, summer evening. I wish this were more easily accessible in my neck of the woods.

Had this beer easily 100 times by now. First time sitting down to review it.
Appearance: Pours a bright golden orange. Very clear. Big fluffy white head and falls to a small ring over the course of drinking. Nice, spotty lacing.
Aroma: Hints on a lot of different angles. Lot of peach, grapefruit, and tropical fruit aromas. Hints of spice and yeast. Very fruity. Apples, pears, other light fruits. Everything melds perfectly. Perfect interaction of American hops, malt, and Belgian yeast
Taste: Opens with just a touch of booze that never feels out of place. Slight hints of funk with lots of bready malt sweetness/yeast character that transitions into a dry, fairly bitter finish. Finish brings out lots of orange/grapefruit zest character that lingers pleasantly.
Mouthfeel: Alcohol is well hidden. Manages to maintain a slightly creamy mouthfeel while being light-bodied and effervescent at 8.5%. Way too easy to drink for what it is.
Overall: The quintessential American take on a Belgian-style. Not a thing I would change.
