Boulevard - Funky Pumpkin

Is it worth drinking? Neh

Drinkability: 2
Smoothness: 4
Flavor: 1
Bitterness: 2

This is seriously funky! Personally I don't care for it at all, it lives up to the name "Funky" as in it tastes like a pumpkin ale, placed in a milkshake mixer with 2 month old sour 2% milk. They are living on the "wild" side here. This Brett beer is FUNKY, and I really don't think that it mixes well with pumpkin. The pumpkin taste is subtle at the finish, and barely present anywhere else. You can taste hints of cinnamon and other spices, but the focus here was clearly on the FUNK, and not much else. Its good that brewery's branch out, and try new things, but this should be in a funky/wild/brett class all by itself. If your into this kind of flavor more power to you, I am not. I got agreements from patrons around the pub, while it is worth tasting to see if it fancy's your palate, I would seriously try a sample first. Boulevard is an excellent brewery, and I am pleased to see that they are doing things "off the wall" and "out of the norm" I personally just couldn't grasp the taste of it.
