COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Most breweries have at least one piece of equipment thatís just a bit persnickity. Here at Boulevard itís fermenter number seven, the black sheep of our cellar family. Ironically, when our brewers were developing variations on a traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale, the perfect combination of elements came together in that very vessel. You could call it fate, but they called it Tank 7, and so it is. Beginning with a flavorful surge of fruity aromatics and hoppy, grapefruit notes (Amarillo hops), this complex, straw-colored ale finishes long, dry and spicy.

The aroma is crisp and grapefruity. The color is golden with an orange hue and a bubbly white head. The flavor is a combo of warming funk with some spiciness and zest to round it off. This beer, as all of Boulevardís I have tried, is delicious. Thanks Vince!

PorterPounder (5881) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl - Proof - part of a Friday night tasting. Nice light golden, murky pour with a long lasting white head. Fresh aroma of lemon and spices. Flavor is full bodied and refreshing. Flavor has a citrusy bent to it with lots of lemon, some minty accents, and a buttery back end. Overall a nice enticing sweetness that just calls out for more! Thick rich mouthfeel with the right amount of spritz.

750 C&C from Wine & Cheese in Clayton,MO. Buy from them. Do that. Pours dishwater gold with a 2 finger frothy white head. Aromas of celery, pale malt and fruit and funk. Medium body with very smooth and creamy carbonation. Flavor is richly rich (yes, Iím drinking hard today) veg and hop. Itís fruity/citrus/grapefruit leaving a nice bitterness in the ending. This is really really good beer. Compared to Odonata? They just arenít on the same wavelength. Each is super fantastic in its own way. Get this beer.

Ibrew2or3 (7262) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Courtesy of HOPSHUNTER. Pours gold with full frothy off white head. The aroma has a touch of acidic sharpness followed by herbally spiciness, some malts, yeast and then brown sugar. The taste has a moderate tart wild yeast note followed by yeasty spices, a pulse of sweet malt and sweetened cranberry juice sliding toward a malty to grainy finish. The finish is soft and pleasing.

750ml bottle, batch #7101, courtesy of foppa28. thanks, mat! pours a hazy, bright yellow with a thick, fluffy, white head and light lacing. aroma is great, interestingly sweet for a saison, with sweet florals, orange juice, and pear notes backed by hints of clove, banana esters, and light berry with a bit of grass. flavor is very nice as well with dry, grassy hops, cloves, sweet banana esters, and light honey with dry malts and lemon zest on the finish. palate is medium bodied, crisp, and sweet yet still refreshing with medium carbonation. overall, a very tasty saison.
