Boulevard Saison Brett 2018

What the brewers say

“Saison Brett, based on our Tank 7, is assertively dry-hopped, then bottle-conditioned with various yeasts, including Brettanomyces.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Orange and lemon, lavender, rose petals, soapy hops aroma with underlying bready and bread-crust malt. Clove and peppery phenols. Minimal funk/sourness.”

Flavor: “Orange-juice, peach, spicy and slightly astringent alcohol. Clean, light, bready malt background. Moderately sweet with moderate bitter and sour in the finish. For a beer in this category, seems light on the Brett funk—a younger beer, perhaps?”

Overall: “A citrus-forward boozy saison. Slight hint of Brett suggests that more is to come as this ages, but any phenols perceptible now could just as easily be fermentation results from typical saison/farmhouse yeasts.”
