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.

Itís a lot like Urthel Hop-It in taste...kind of a confluence of a three-river Belgian tripel, a pilsner, and an imperial IPA. A lot going on here. Resiny, oily, fruity, bitter. Better than I expected.

Pours pale gold with a very tall, slightly chunky, off white head that has excellent retention and leaves nice sheets of lacing. Aroma is light dusty grain, tart lemon, lots of floral hops, citrus rind, and a touch of forest floor funk. Flavor is citrus rind, floral and citrus hops, hints of sweet grain, dusty straw, musty autumn leaves and lasting sweet grass. Palate is medium bodied with a creamy entry, light, spritzy carbonation and a dry, slightly boozy carbonation. Fantastic saison, I was disappointed that they stopped making their original saison, but this is just as good.

750ml botle. Pours a golden color with nice lasting white head. Aroma of floral hops, spice, yeast and citrus. Taste is much of the same. Nice hop taste to go along with it. Solid Brew!

Draft. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma of earthy yeast, lemon and grapefruit, some fruit and spice. Flavor is earthy, lemon and orange, honey, coriander and pepper, with a bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body, somewhat creamy mouthfeel. A wonderful saison.

tap at falling Rock. This beer blew me away. easily one of the best saisons I have ever tasted. Pours with a nice straw yellow hazy color. Aromas of spiced bread. The flavors are outstanding: wonderful yeastiness with cloves and orange peel and some pepperiness, offset by some noticeable hops character, perfectly balanced and very smooth.

I had this from a corked & caged 750 ml bottle, courtesy of drffabulous. This pours a hazy golden color with a very long lasting, frothy white head. The aroma is a tad musty, the flavor is thirst quenching, a touch spicy with some herbal and floral note. All in all, itís pretty tasty and quite drinkable.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2011 # 600 Pours a hazy light orange with a good sized white head. Aroma is grassy, spicy, touch of belgian yeast and some citrus. Taste is a nice touch of pepper with a little sweetness and lemon. Fairly thick mouthfeel that finishes a bit dryer with grapefruit bitterness. I guess the inperial saisons are in season, lol.
