Many thanks go to Decoman who personally brought this to me from Chicago way
I fell in love at first pour - I'm such a sucker for that golden hue... but the pillowy/meringue sun bleached cap put me over the edge. "Fluffy" is a good descriptor for this one. Dusty sweet on the nose - loads of juicy fruits - lemons, sweet green apples, musk melon and tangerine pith come to mind. Taste shows more of a bitterness than the nose, but not overly so. Nice amount of funk-n-lemons, along with a squeeze or two of white grapefruit. Not spicy at all. Insanely drinkable, carbonation is just a touch subdued, but balances well. Nice dryness in the finish.
Another good to very good Saison from Boulevard - the drinkability of this thing is off the chain. Damn, but this is one Saison I wish was local to me...
Thanks again Deco!
from the 12oz bottle(best by 07/27/12)slow and easy because there's a lot of foam, which is cool.
It has a hazy, bordering on cloudy, golden yellow colour and as the foam recedes, there's plenty of lacing.
The smell is SO Saison like; lots of yeasty notes, some coriander, clove, a hint of Brett.
It tastes like it smells with the addition of a nice earthy malt character and really no sign of any Brett. There's a flavourful bitterness here that I think comes from lemon zest but something else as well. Very good Saison and very easy to drink for an 8%'er.
I'm glad it's in town and comes in convenient 4 packs.
