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.

amazing.
that should be enough but i will elaborate for those yet to try this beer.
been trying to get ahold of this one for a while so much thanks to @SteveB24 for sharing.
Boulevard starts with an excellent beer and kicks it up a notch by adding brett.
beautiful golden color with an aroma of that amazing saison yeast and brett clearly pronounced. tastes exactly how i want it to taste and more. just so well done if i ever have access to again i'll buy all i can to see how this beer does with age. definitely holds its own with the big brett boys.
job well done boulevard.

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!
