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.

Batch 2009-01; Bottle 2508 of 11925...in a Smokestack Series Chalice.

Pours a cloudy golden peach color, visibly effervescent, with suspended particulate and a foamy white two finger head that resists fading, leaving sheets of Belgian lacing behind. The smell is complex and nothing short of amazing! Sweet, fruity, apple, pear, and earthy yeast. The mouth feel is equally unique and rewarding. Bright yet creamy with effervescent texture, medium bodied. Full flavored, the fruity harvest celebration mixed with a well balanced tartness kicks up "Saison" to levels only imagined by Emeril Lagasse yet the earthen fruity sweetness l"coats" and lingers really well. Seriously, 'Farmhouse Ales' haven't been my Fav...but this has to be one of the best beers that i've ever had..."period". The total package is amazing..nose. texture, flavor and drinkability. Cheers to Team Boulevard! This one is outta here...i'm talk'in WOW, different planet good. This one is beyond a doubt one of the best beers that I've ever experienced!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

750 mL bottle with a batch number 2008-1, so this one has been sitting in my cellar for quite some time, maybe the brett has developed more than some of the fresher bottles I have had. Pours with a huge white head that is at least twice as tall as the amount of gold nectar collecting in the bottom portion of my glass. Retention is ridiculous, static almost and lacing is noteworthy as well.

Does not smell a whole lot different than a fresh bottle...still plenty of lemony saison yeast with a bright, floral hop presence. Honeyed, grainy malt background with all of this steeping below a nice, woody brettomyces aroma. Absolutely wonderful smelling brew.

Leathery brett is becoming more dominant as this one ages, but there is still plenty of complexity and brightness to the beer. You can tell this brew had a pretty heavy hand of bittering hops to begin with and some of the lemony fruitiness helps that linger on awhile. Dry, effervescent finish, carbonation is high and I like that in a saison. Malts are a little less neutral than some of the classic Belgian examples - still light, but contributes some sweetness and even some biscuity flavors. This beer is so easy to write about, so much going on. I think I like this beer at about the 1-1.5 year mark the best. I like a heavy brettomyces impact, but I dont want to lose all the other nuances either. Wonderful beer that I have no problem forking out the 12 buck for, one of the best beers I have ever had.

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Hazy light gold color - a little like pineapple juice - with a substantial foamy white head that lingers a ll the way down. No real lacing, just occasional clumps of foam on the glass.

The aroma is funky, floral and fruity all at the same time - hints of tropical fruit, wet blankets, crackers, hay, some vague floral notes, pine - really hard to describe and seems to change as you drink.

The taste is also complex, slightly sweet and sour at once, grapefruit, pineapple, crackers, earthy, phenolic and more but nicely blended and none overpowering. Finishes nicely dry and slightly peppery.

Very nice sipping brew, especially for warm weather. Medium bodied, highly carbonated, very drinkable.

Overall a very enjoyable brew as it is, I'd like to try it with a year or two of age.

2016 batch, poured from a 750ml bottle into a Belgian tulip glass. Pours a VERY hazy, and radiant golden color, with a beautiful and stable fluffy off-white head that lingers and leaves beautiful lacing all along the sides of the glass as you drink. The smell is very earthy, a little funky, grassy, and a spot of citrus. The Brett is very detectable, but not as POW as I was expecting. The taste follows but much more pronounced. Very earthy with a grassy hop flavor, subtle sweetness in the middle and a dry, ever so slightly lemony and grassy finish that stays on the palate. Complex, funky, and balanced. Feel is fluffy and smooth. Overall, damn near perfect. Not exactly what i expected, but that's part of what makes it so enjoyable; the unpredictability of Brettanomyces.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter

A - Absolutely beautiful golden orange with a massive 3-4 finger white head. Unbelievable retention and lacing.

S - Barnyard funk, brett, citrus notes such as lemon zest, as well as some floral notes.

T - Very similar to the nose. Brett makes a huge appearance in this beer (as the name would suggest), as well as phenomenal dry hopped citrus qualities that are to die for. A superb representation of the style.

M - Like most of the smokestack series this one has quite a lot of carbonation. Smooth and refreshing and finishes nice and dry.

O - This is the best saison I've had. Boulevard smokestack series have never done me wrong and this one is my favorite offering out of them all! I really ought to age one of these bad boys for a year or two next time I see it on the shelves.

This is a truly exceptional saison. It is deceptively light for its 8.5% abv. The "Brett" character is light, which I prefer. It does add a very nice earthy note to the beer. For those who prefer the Geuze style sours, you may find this too smooth. Worthy of its ranking, in my opinion.

Note this is the 2013 Batch that was just released, time will change this review

A - Hazy golden with small yeast floating, Nice 2-3 finger head leaving after 2 mins, bubble lacing remaining on sides of tulip glass.

S - Much like the Tank 7 from which it is derived but has more of the earthy tones with the "Brett " yeast

T - Grassy, fruity, lemon pineapple, earthy slight bitterness that lingers with the funk that lingers on the back of the throat.

M - Nice carbonation, light and musty lingering on

O - Super beer to sip and enjoy all the flavors that come through and one of the very best of the Farmhouse styles of beer you will every taste ( at least from what I have tasted and read on the style) Highly recommended if you are a fan of this style and a benchmark of American brewed interpretation of the Belgium Farmhouse style.

Wow, just wow. Traded thanks to hooliganlife

Great bottle pressure upon opening. Pours clear golden, with outstanding foamy head, varying bubble size, and unprecedented head retention. Lacing is akin to a bubbling pot of rice krispie treats.

The aroma immediately reminds me of Orval. Low and behold, so does the taste! Orval being one of my favorites ever, I may be somewhat biased. What a masterfully brewed Craft Beer. Truly artisanal. Exceptional balance between mild Saison sweetness, earthy brett and solvent alcohol. However, the 8.5% is more than hidden, it is nearly nonexistent. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel, with a sharp and biting carbonation. This may just be the finest crafted American beer I have had. Hats off to Boulevard, this is a truly exceptional beer.

This, very simply is one of the best beers I've ever had. The aroma is unique, at lease compared to any beer I've had before, and reminded me of a field after a heavy rain....if that makes any sense. I'm currently cellaring a bottle that I plan on opening in celebration of graduating with my master's in December.

She's got a really nice funk smell with a touch of grain a little fruitiness from the hops/yeast.

This is an all-star saison. One of my faves. Probably shouldn't let it get this old but it's still got a ton of character.

From my Libbey Embassy Royale Poco Grande tulip.

Appearance: Pale straw/golden in color. Expected more haziness, but the first pour has excellent clarity. Subsequent pours get progressively hazier, and the last I couldn't see my hand through the glass. Soft, pillowy white head which takes its time settling. As the beer clears its way farther down the cup, the white foam utterly clings to the cup; excellent retention.

Smell: Slight white pepper, but very apparent funk of straw/dirt. (The earthy character I expected.) If you scraped a horses hoof of dirt on the underside and then smelled it.... divided by two. Some citrus, rather musty.

Taste: WOW. What a pick for my first brett beer. This pleasant, but unmistakably sharp bite of this beer just kicks you in the mouth. The phrase I've heard, "barnyard funk", is extremely appropriate. This flavor is, however, difficult to understand until you experience it. Wonderfully complex, with an array of flavors beginning to end. As for ABV... what ABV? Highly drinkable. Bit yeasty, and slight apple tartness. The funk dominates waaay more than the faint tart qualities.

Mouthfeel: Fuller than I had expected, but still light and appropriate for the style. Very appropriate carbonation, so refreshing yet flavorful.

Overall: I expected a lot from this beer and it lived up to expectation 100%. Simply one of the best examples for the style, in my experience. Elegantly & unapologetically funky.

Gift from AleWatcher as an invitational to the Blind Beer BIF #4. Thanks Jeff for filling a want!

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

Pours a hazy orangey gold, with a huge frothy offwhite head of about three fingers. Head is very slow to drop.

Aromas of spicey yeast, lemon zest, sweet malt. Some funk. Screams "belgian!"

Flavors of orange and lemon zest, background bitterness, alcohol bite, hints of sweet malt. A little pepper. Something else lingering in there. The funk is brett, a little barnyardy. Finish lingers on a citrusy bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium, light mouthcoating bitterness. Not as dry as I'm used to for a saison.

Highly drinkable saison. Now one of my favorites.

Poured this 750 mL brown bottle into a Tripel Karmeliet glass. Numbered 5965 of 13400. The body was a bright golden and clear of sediment. The head was white, large, irregular and creamy. Clumps remained throughout.

Smell was wonderfully funky, earthy, and spicy. Cloves and nutmeg? Not too spicy, just right. Powdery. Rich.

Taste was Belgian yeast. Dirt floor cellar. Apples. Black pepper. Bright fruitiness. Wet stones. There was a nice bitter linger. This is one of the best American saisons I've had.

Mouthfeel was medium in body and had moderate carbonation.

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber wheat and peach toned straw. This one's a gusher and got everywhere, and after a brief intermission to clean the mattress it spilled all over, took an extremely slow pour to get in the glass. The head is a few inches big and is not gonna die down anytime soon. The carbonation is in swirls, streams, and clouds, and dare I say it, clouds that remind me of a smokestack, with thick plumes coming out fairly consistently. The carbonation moves so much, but the head stays extremely still and no movement is evident. This brew is absolutely amazing looking, with an entirely ridiculous head and carbonation. Webby and sticky, uneven patches of lacing.

Smell: Smells deliciously sour, and mouthwatering at that, with tones ranging from green apples to sour powder. Some grapefruit and pretty obvious brett, as well as just the slight amount of funk. Smells simple, light, and nice.

Taste: Taste is a slightly sour barnyard funk with heavy brett, and is combined rather nicely with fruit notes (particularly granny smith apples. The sourness is pleasantly present, and doesn't overwhelm, yet for someone who absolutely loves sours the way I do is amazing for being toned down a bit but managing to be full bodied. The funk isn't too overwhelming either--there are grass, hay, leather, and tobacco notes, but nothing that smells too much of horse. Increasing banana and some clove spice as it warms.

Mouthfeel: Mouthfeel is excellent, I was almost terrified that this one would be overcarbonated, but it is very nice and well done, and easily drinkable, and actually fairly calm. It is a little on the foamy side...

Drinkability: This is an amazingly crafted and easily drinkable brew. It was an absolute pleasure to consume and as a whole, I really have few complaints. Its different elements blend together fairly amazingly. This is absolutely one of the best Boulevards that I have had to date, and is quite impressive--I would never guess the ABV.

A: Hazy golden with a big, thick, foamy head. A long sustain with at least 1/2" of foam throughout the duration of the drink. Heavy lacing.

S: A pleasantly funky brett smell with earthy hop aromas.

T: Funky with, as my wife puts it, "buttery goodness." A light sweetness on the front of the tongue followed by a moderate hop bitterness and flavors of lemon zest and citrus. Light notes of black pepper round out the taste.

M: Full-bodied with lots of carbonation. A lingering of funk and mild bitterness on the palate.

D: Truly deserving of its current title of best saison. Do whatever it takes to get some of this.

2011 vintage poured into a fantome tulip and paired with locally made Mississippi herb goat cheese ... absolutely perfect!

A: pours a completely clear golden color with a massive foamy, off-white head that fills 2/3 of the glass.  It takes forever for the head to subside so I can get a little more liquid in the glass.  Extremely impressive sea foam lacing left behind on the glass.  The head never settles completely, leaving a moderate film covering the surface.

S: Holy funk, Boulevard!  Really nice Bretty barnyard qualities are dominant.  Musty hay, horse blanket, and grass, accompanied by lemon zest and cracked pepper and a slightly spicy hoppiness.  There is also a touch of damp wood, gym socks, and mushrooms that really adds some complexity to the aroma.  Really an exceptional smelling farmhouse ale. 

T: The taste is funky as hell, too, but there is a significant amount of lemon zest that balances things out.  It starts out with a wonderful earthy taste, comprised of damp hay, grass, and something resembling celery and mushrooms, along with a nice, but subtle, hop profile.  Transitions slowly to a fresh lemon zestiness with some cracked pepper, both of which linger long after you swallow.  The Brett funkiness lingers as well, mainly in the sinuses, as if you were truly in a barn.

M: Medium-bodied with an excellent level of carbonation, that is slightly high, but very, very pleasant.  The higher carbonation makes it spritzy and accentuates the flavors.  As you roll it around in your mouth, foam forms just like when it was originally poured into the glass.  Slightly drying at the finish, but only on the back of the tongue.  The lingering flavors keep the mouth slightly wet between sips as it waters in anticipation.  

D: Absolutely exceptional example of the style.  This is hands down the best American made farmhouse ale, if not the best of its kind.  Wildly funky, yet not over the top.  Earthy, citrusy, herbal, and slightly vegetal.  Amazing complex yet perfectly balanced.  Try it if you can!

I've been wanting to get ahold of this one for awhile. Now i gotta get some Boulevard BBQ!!!

A - Poured a golden straw colored with lots haze. The white frothy-foamy shapeshifting head was pretty big resulting in a nice glass coating lace.

S - Smells sour and i detect hints of apple, orange of lemon.

T - Tastes just like it did at the Belgian Beer fest in september with the slightest but pleasant funky band-aid flavor. This is less sour than i expected though but its very tasty. Has a great earthy taste to it but at the same time its very fresh due to the hops! PERFECT contrast! Later on i sniffed it again and inhaled some of the beer up my nose and after that the beer tasted like brown sugar. WEIRD. Yeasty-tasty.

M - medium(almost milky mixed with soda)body. Slick with an attack of the tingles. Ever so slightly dry. I will try to buy a few bottles of this every year or so. SO GOOD.

2 more in the basement)WOO-HOO!!!

I'm drunk. I had other beers earlier. good night...beer.

2012 Bottle - Bought at Brown Bag in Olathe, KS - Bottle #9312

I had 4 bottles of the 2011 version and my memory was painting some rather lofty memories of it. More than a few said they'd nailed the 2012 and drinking it fresh instead of aging it was a perfectly reasonable thing to do.

So I cracked one open after having the willpower to leave the bottles I bought alone for a couple months.

The biggest difference out of the whole experience that I noted vs the 2011 version was the aroma. 2012 has an even more pronounced bready/funky smell. Had to be one of the better smelling beers I can recall. (If you like funk) I had just come off a disappointment with Love Child No 2 so this was a return to form in my mind.

The head dissipates quickly with medium sized bubbles. It doesn't hang around as long or lace as much as the Tank 7 it's loosly based on. The appearance is perfect pale yellow. The bubbles will come up from dead center at the bottom for an infinite period of time. Mouthfeel is baby bottom smooth.

The taste? Oh man! ^_^ Thank goodness Tank 7 is year round as a stand in, but this is just a great funky rendition that I still hate having only 3 more bottles to look forward to until next year. Very strong funky medicinal notes. Prickly near the end. Finishes smooth. No burn whatsoever.

If you like a good farmhouse ale, and want to know what a Brett(funked up) version will taste like, you can't beat this mana in a glass.

I picked this up on my latest trip to CO.

750ml caged and corked bottle no. 4561 batch no. 2009-1

Huge pop when I opened it and I did lose an ounce or 2, dammit.

It pours a hazy golden yellow colour with a huge head of foam. I guess I didn't leave it in the fridge long enough(~1 hour) but I'm expecting big things since BA has rated it so highly. The foam is very billowy and looks to be long lasting. The lacing? There's plenty of it sticking to the side of my New Belgium goblet.

The amell is yeasty and full of the Brett presence...a very nice funky smell. Something I would *expect* from a brew that had Brett in its name. ;^) There's also a good note of some lemon zest that I enjoy when it comes to a good Saison.

The taste..ok....this is tasting mighty fine. Spicy, funky, yeasty, lemon zesty. My oh my. The taste is hitting my palate on all the right notes. I love the flavours I'm tasting and there's a nice fairly light sprinkling of some pepper to make things even more ineresting. The Brett isn't subtley done at all here and I literally want to jump up and say..Yes! Malt wise, I get a bit of an earthy flavour and that doesn't hurt one bit. To tell you the truth, if I was given this in a blind tasting, I'd swear it was brewed in Belgium. Isn't that the goal of every brewer in the US that brews a Belgian Style Ale? Boulevard did that in spades!

Medium mouthfeel with a spritzy level of carbonation, it finishes funky and pretty darned dry. That makes me want to take quicker sips than I want to and damn, it's *only* a 750ml bottle. Oh and head retention is superb.

Drinkability? Can you guess? Full flavoured, wonderfully flavoured, not inhibited by its 8.5% abv at all, this is another dangerously drinkable brew and a sheer joy to drink. A top notch Saison in my book and not even close to being an overrated brew. See some, get some!

Pours a golden, honey color into my Delirium glass, topped with a sudsy head. The beer appears to be quite carbonated, and there is some nice lacing coming from the head which retains itself well. As expected, there is a lot of sediment visible as well. The aroma is very intriguing! I can sense a background of juicy hops, with herbal brett, and farmhouse funk front-and-center. The taste is spectacular and complex, starting with a big smack of tanginess and lemongrass. There's some tart candy, lots of peppery spice, alpine herbs, and fruit esters in there as well - apple and pear come to mind. The entire package is medium bodied, coats the mouth, and is very smooth and relatively balanced. Overall, I don't think there is any other beer quite like this. It's not a beer, it's an experience.

Had on tap, a test batch for the 2011 edition. Can't wait for it to be introduced.

Great smell - peaches and barnyardy goodness. Good white head & retention. Moderate cloudiness. The lacing with this one was only OK, which is probably the only clear weakness I saw with this beer.

The taste is very nice. Crisp, with a slightly sour finish. Smooth, a good balance of malts and hops. Peaches and barnyard flavors dominate, as with the smell. On first impression the sourness in the aftertaste was a little surprising, but I got used to it 1/3 of the way into the beer. The smell could have been a touch more powerful - but that's because I enjoyed it so much.

So I'm really nitpicking here. It's a great beer and I'll grab many if I can find it when it's released.

Poured from the 750ml into a pint glass

Look: Really awesome Belgian type head. It's cloudy. Which is sort of refreshing to see in this style. Straw yellow.

Smell: Herbal, floral- jasmine maybe. Apricot, and dammit, maybe a little pineapple. Sweet and pleasant. Clear as a bell. Bright.

Taste: Pleasant belgian yeast upfront and a little fruit and flower underneath. Similar to what was described in the scent. Very clear citrus fruits. Apricot.

Mouth: Drinkable. Thicker than most saisons, but don't let that scare you. No more filling than an IPA. Still a perfect summer brew.

Overall: It is so encouraging to see this beer come back again. Boulevard is on a roll lately. As a Kansas Citian I'm embarrassed to admit I probably talk more shit on my hometown brewery than needed, but this shows where Bully's true heart is at. It is beers like this, the Rye on Rye and the Double Wide IPA that make me want to boast of KC's beer scene. It is an exceptional take on the trending, but nonetheless classic, saison style. The Brett, in my opinion, should respect the taste buds of regular fans of the Saisons (such as the DuPont), but I also found it pleased the palates of my APA drinking buds.
