COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Most breweries have at least one piece of equipment that’s just a bit persnickity. Here at Boulevard it’s 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.

Duchammer (49) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle: Poured a golden yellow with a white lingering head. Aroma was a nice mixture between the hops and the phenols. This beer started out sweet taste and the biterness from the hops complimented the peppery notes of the saison. Nice saison!

Very nice farmhouse ale. Lemon like flavor and zest. Some earthy barnyard yeasty funk, but well done and balanced. Some Belgian yeasty flavors. Quite enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Roser (20) - Virginia, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Appearance- cloudy, straw, gold. Big bone white uber foamy head. Excellent lacing. Smell- fruity (banana) and floral aromas dominate, followed by some grass and a little bread. Taste- complex with quite a bit going on (earthy, malty, spicey). What stands out is the bitter aftertaste dominated by grapefruit. Awesome! Mouthfeel- medium, crisp, outstanding balance. Overall- excellent!!! Not to be missed. A quality quaff. Cheers all!

From tap at Boulevard tasting Room. Pours gold and very clear for a saison. Spice, bitter, malt, and alcohol are all incredibly balanced. This is a great end to a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BucannonXC5 (802) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Stone Ruination IPA pint glass From: Bine & Vine Bottle Shop in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif. Price: $11.99 for a 4-pack Purchased: May 28, 2014 Consumed: May 29, 2014 Misc.: Best by Aug. 14, 2014 Poured a golden, straw, semi-clear color with 4-to-5 fingers of pillowy white head. Good deal of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Good amount of foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Thick, foamy retention on the top of the glass all the way down. Smelled a pleasant variety of notes on the nose. Got cloves, tropical notes, grape, kiwi, sour apple, sour fruit, sweet floral notes, caramel, honey, light banana bread and faint peppery spices. Pretty lovely. Tasted not quite as good as the smell, which would be difficult anyway. First thing I noticed was the alcohol. Not as hidden as I would have thought from a Saison. Got tropical notes, kiwi, green apple, green grape, sour fruits, honey, floral notes, banana bread, caramel and unknown lingering Belgian spices. Light body. Oily texture. Lively-to-average carbonation. Long, astringent finish. I wavered between an overall rating of 3.75 and 4.00, but the latter got the nod. The smell was fantastic.
