We unearthed a special bottle of Boulevard’s Saison-Brett from 2012 for our first meeting of the second version of the KC Beer Scouts Outpost #1. How did the aging change this well-regarded farmhouse beer?
From the Boulevard website:
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.
Yep. That’s what we were after.
