Most breweries have at least one piece of equipment thats just a bit persnickity. Here at Boulevard its 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 bubble carbonation brings out all the flavor in this bright beer. A sweet malty note up front, followed by a fruity orange twist at the end with a nice settle mouthfeel. Not much to the nose on this one and it has some strong acetic notes at the end, but that might be expected in a farmhouse.

Purchased at Scotts Valley market. Firmness and height of head is related to how carefully you pour it and its temperature. Maybe it is bottle conditioned because there is some yeast in it, it is a little cloudy. It is not all that heavily carbonated and has not got that much bitterness. It reminds me of Saison Dupont except the hops are better, the mouth-feel is better and there are more layers of flavor. This became my go-to Saison in two bottles.

glennmastrange (2324) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle. Moderate to heavy grain and straw for the malt, moderate to heavy herbs, pine and lemon peel for the hops, moderate barnyard for the yeast, with notes of unripe apple, wood and ginger. Head is average size, frothy, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy light amber with a good amount of tiny particles. Flavor starts faintly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, slick with a carbonation between lively and fizzy, and has a dry finish. An over the top Saison with a super hop presence.

skaughty (647) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 13, 2014
12 oz. bottle @KC airport "Top of the Crown Grill" Muted straw aroma. Thin hazy yellow with a medium carbonation ring. Italian bread with oak taste. Hops are subtle, but add to the earthiness. Finish isn't as dry as advertised, but it sits on your tongue foreeeeeever. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Arcadia (26) - DeLand, Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle from ABC. Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin, quickly vanishing white head. Strong hop aroma, mostly grass with hints of citrus, maybe some raisin. Taste is somewhat bitter but sticks around well after the finish. I've heard good things and am not at all disappointed. Acquire. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PacNWDad (107) - Washington, USA - NOV 2, 2014
11/2/2014. 12 oz bottle purchased at Full Throttle Bottles, poured into a goblet. Pours with two fingers of dense, white head with a few large bubbles here and there that lingers. Massive Brussels lace on the sides of the glass, that stays a long time. Golden hued and slightly cloudy. Fruity aroma of apple, biscuit, yeast, apricot. Floral hops notes. Nice sweetness up front that stays around with the finish that also has a little bitterness from the hops and a little acidity. Moderate carbonation - almost fizzy but just short of it. Light body, on the dry side. Long finish. Wow - its like Im in Belgium!
