BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Saison-Brett, based on our very popular Tank 7, is assertively dry hopped, then bottle conditioned with various yeasts, including Brettanomyces, a wild strain that imparts a distinctive earthy quality. Though this farmhouse ale was given three months of bottle age prior to release, further cellaring will continue to enhance the “Brett” character, if that's what you're after.

750ml poured into a TB Teku. 2014 bottle.

A: Pours a huge three fingers of bright white head. Thin and wispy with a pale golden body. Crazy good head retention.

S: Spicy white pepper phenols with a nice lemon tangyness and white grapes. The brett adds a nice horsey funk that blends quite well with the zesty yest and fruity hops at the beginning.

T: Like the nose tons of spicy yeast phenols up front with some nice dusty hoppyness in the middle. Horsey and biscuit malt finish. Little sweeter that I like though.

M/D: Drying mouthfeel with a nice prickly carbonation. On par for a saison. Very drinkable with only some warmth.

O: Solid Brett forward saison. Nice balance of zesty yeast phenols, lemony hops and Brett finish. Has more heft than I'm used to in a saison but still drinks fairly easy.
