BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States
boulevard.com

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 2014 bottle, with a best-by date of 2016. Served at refrigerator temperature into my Duvel tulip.
A - Clear yellow, with streaming carbonation from the bottom of the glass, and a 2 fingers' width of thick fluffy white head that never goes away. Very, very, impressive 5/5
S - Fruity aromas from the hops and Brett, grains and wet hay. Smells sweet. 4.5/5
T - Perfect blend of sweetness, sourness, and graininess. The carbonation helps explode the flavors on the palate. A very pleasant sipper, perfect for a sunny SoCal afternoon. 4.5/5
M - Medium mouthfeel that feels much lighter due to the strong carbonation. Well done Boulevard. 4.5/5
O - Not really sure how I would improve upon this beer, except may be make it a bit lighter on the feel, and ABV, yet retain the fullness of aroma and flavor. Not sure what kind of a brewing miracle that would take. Until then, this works just perfectly! 4.5/5
Now, I need to try this fresh, at 2 yrs, and 3/4 yrs - for research's sake!

Beautiful in appearance and flavor. Snappy earth flavors with spice. Cracker malt. Dry finish. If you find this, buy it.

Poured in tulip glasses. So much head. Funky nose. Great yeast/wheat taste.
