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.

Bottle. Pour is bright gold with a nice white head which quickly disappears. Aroma is rich botanicals, citrus/floral hops, spicy belgo yeast, grain husk. Flavor is spices, botanicals, a bit of malt sweetness, and a nice floral hop bite. Palate is dry, crisp, light-medium body, bitter finish. Quite good.

burg326 (4667) - Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2011
22 ounce bottle from ekoerper, poured a hazy yellow with a thick white head, had a floral aroma, with yeast and a hint of pineapple. Has a light body that is very pleasing on the palate for a hot summer day. Grapfruit notes hit the tounge immediately with a little clove/spiceness on the back end.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2011
On tap at the Ginger Man in Austin, TX. Pours the color of liquid hay with a tall light tan head and thin sheets of lacing. Fruity and yeasty aroma. First sip had a touch of banana and herbs almost along the lines of a hefeweizen but then a stronger malt profile and a surprising hop presence kicked in. Rich but still refreshing texture with medium carbonation and a sweet crisp finish. A really well balanced and flavorful beer.

tomciccateri (1032) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUN 29, 2011
brown 12-ounce bottle from Kansas city store. Pours a dense, dull dark gold color with a fine white head and lace. Big mostly citrusy, but complex aromas. Medium body, highly carbonated, tangy mouthfeel, grapefruit notes dominate. Nice synergistic flavor combination between mellow hop bitterness and pale malts. slightly sweet flavor balance. Nice combination of flavors and textures.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Bottle @ Tel Aviv tasting. Yellow with nice cap. Definite farmhouse aroma with a distinct hop aroma, what is that? Similar to safir hop, nice and herbal and inviting. Smooth and clear, lovely and dry herbal hop finish. Very easy to drink. Easily one of the best of the tasting.

DrnkMcDermott (2902) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Draft taster, Bavarian Lodge. Slight banana smell at the start, then the berry and plum notes of a nice warmly fermented beer, plus some wheat or rye spice. Bright yellow like a pils, but with a sneaky reddish tinge. The first sip seems a little thin for such a busy beer.But thereís the taste: a melange of Belgian pale malt, strawberry, Dreamsicle and grains of paradise, although surely that spice comes from the yeast. A complex beer thatís a welcome change from lighter summer fare.

Bottle shared by Derek. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a large white head. Big fuzzy musk, lightly phenolic yeast. Cool and clean. Light hop note, musk and soft wheat. Light hop bitterness, more musky yeast. Solid and clean, well done.

Draft sample at the Third Annual Rocket City Brewfest. Yellow in the glass with a white head that settled to a ring. Aroma of citrus and light spice. The flavor found lemon and light dark fruits. Light body and hints of spice in the aftertaste.
