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.

Excellent. Flavor are complex and make you really think about what you're tasting. But in a good way. Very versatile, drinkable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hipster, everywhere. Need a farmhouse or saison to be cool. This is it. Grapefruit some sour orange peel, anyone can cruise with this Bronson. Easy to find, best on tap. Higher ABV. Dies not taste like it. Perfect with mellow cheeses. Get at your local grill with cheese platter. Each different cheese can bring out each distinct fruity tart notes.

Pineapple, earthy hops, and rosemary in the aroma. Nice bright gold color. The flavor hits with lemon, spicy hops, and bubbly on the tongue. Well done.

Bottle at bar. Poured a golden honey with a high white head. Smells Belgian fresh with malt notes, cold, flowers and spices. Tastes reminiscent of straw, corn, good bitterness and simply delicious.

PotjeBier (1771) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2014
12 oz bottle from De Bierkoning @ home. Clear (light) golden color. Uneven white head with good retention and lacing. Aromaís: caramel malts, spices, peppery yeast. Retronasal itís caramellish, aniseed, pepper, light fruity sourness. Flavor is light sweet, caramel, light bitter. Alcohol feel is quite strong. Medium bodied. Quite high carbo. Long finish, slightly dry, caramellish, light bitter. Bit strong for the style, but pretty good interpretation. And tasty at that.

Great example of a Belgian ale. Tastes like a very mellow example of Hoegarden, a bit bitter of the end. A long palate with a nice aroma. Definitely do again! Light and flavorful.

PhillyCraft (3435) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2014
On tap at Devils Den with Scott, pours very hazy orange with lots of prickly carbonation and nice sized white head. Notes are Belgian fruit, yeast, pepper, and light hops. Crisp and refreshing.

Wow, fruity aromatics, big, fluffy white head, perfectly balanced beer. Hides its 8.5 ABV better than a politician hides the truth. Overall, an amazing expression of the style.
