BOULEVARD Smokestack Series Ale, Saison-Brett, 2013
Special limited release ale. Only 4,100 cases produced. No. 1 in the Boulevard Smokestack series. A traditional Belgian-style saison was the starting point for this limited edition ale, but then the fun began: It was dry hopped, followed by bottle conditioning with various yeasts, including Brettanomyces, a wild strain that imparts a distinctive earthy quality. Though this farmhouse ale received three months of bottle age prior to release, further cellaring will continue to enhance the Brett character, if that's what you're after. Our Special Limited Release ales are produced in very small quantities. The front label shows the total number of cases in this release. More information is at boulevard.com. 8.5% alc/vol.
