saison-brett_bottle.jpgAndy Snead from Whole Foods Galleria posted on the STL Hops Forums that the Boulevard Saison-Brett is now available at the Whole Foods Galleria. I had some more of this beer while at the Augusta Bottoms Festival and it was still fantastic. It provides just enough Brett flavor to really make the beer funky without having too much of it overpower the entire palate.

I think this is one of those perfect beers to get people into beers featuring brettanomyces yeast without it being a funk bomb. I really wish this had come out earlier in the summer as I think it’s a wonderfully refreshing beer. Make sure to pick up your numbered bottle as I don’t expect this one to last long. I’d be very curious to see what some age will do on this beer.

Update: Andy informs me that what he thought was Saison-Brett was actually just Saison.  But Paul from Wine and Cheese Place seems to have gotten it in, so I expect Whole Foods to have it soon as well.
