The newest addition to Boulevard Brewing Co.’s First Fridays Collection Series has been released.
Lickable Wallpaper is an 8.1 percent ABV mixed-fermentation saison brewed with aged Saaz hops before being aged in Chardonnay wine casks source “from a world-class winery in Napa Valley” for 14 months and conditioned on fresh Washington boysenberries for an additional four months. According to a post on Boulevard’s website, the new release was inspired by fruited mixed culture beers produced by Belgium-based breweries Brasserie-Brouwerij Cantillon and Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen.
This is the second release in Boulevard’s First Fridays Collection Series following Hold the Pancakes, a 14.1 percent ABV ale made up of a blend of multiple vintages of imperial brown ales as well as imperial stouts that have been aged in both rye and whiskey barrels for up to two years with maple syrup before being packaged in 750ml bottles.
According to Boulevard, Lickable Wallpaper is packaged in 750ml bottles that are now available in limited quantities across the brewery’s distribution network.
