    What category would a saison with brett be entered in? Similar to Saison Brett by Boulevard.
    16E?

    Thanks.

    16C...most saisons are brewed with some sort of farmhouse ale that contains a variation of brett...so that only solidifies it as a saison (16C) in my mind.

    Read the guidelines in detail. 16E would be a good place as it includes Brett.

    I did. That's why I asked if 16e was correct

    Can't really argue with you, but in looking at commercial examples of the categories, I'd say that Boulevard's Saison Brett fits in with those for 16C rather than 16E. But yeah, I suppose 16C would be the appropriate place to put it.

    You already knew the answer.

    Another thing to consider is that you could enter the beer twice, once each as 16C and 16E
