BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.

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.

A: Cloudy gold with an ample 3/4" head that has good retention. No legs.

N: Tons of lemon zest, grapefruit, grass, straw, and some lavender. Oak, peppercorn, soap, and funk.

T: Very funky with a moderate bitterness and an underpinning of malt sweetness. Lots of firm farmhouse flavors here. Damn good.

M: Well carbonated and light.

O: This is a great representation of the style and worthy of its high ranking. Hits all parts of the tongue, and I would definitely buy more.

Had on tap at CBS Scene at Patriot Place. 10 oz. pour into a snifter.

Appearance: Hazy golden orange with a small whitish head that fades slowly, with some nice lacing.

Smell: Very citrusy with lemon dominating followed by a grassy, grainy character and a bit of sweetness thrown in.

Taste: Crisp tartness with a bit of sweetness and some lemony notes. Very tasty with hints of wheat as well.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and extremely easy drinking. Absolutely no hit of alcohol and I'd never guess this one was 8.5%.

Overall: Very good, and even better than Tank 7. A great beer that I could drink for a while.

Pours a hazy golden color with a very thick foamy head. Head retention is high. Lacing is excellent. Very high carbonation. Has that typical funky Brett aroma. I can also detect lemon and banana. Very bready, malty taste up front with strong Brett funk and more of a banana type aftertaste. There is some spiciness and very slight tartness at the end. Good beer, but I do favor other saisons over this.
