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.

Draft at Good Dog. Slightly hazy golden straw pour with a thin white head that left a lot of lace. Bitter amber fruits. Bitter golden hops. Spicey honey marmalade. Quite pungent. Strong amber fruits. Drops to juicy, spicy and herbal. Worth a shot.

"I didnít make this a pairing on purpose, but this has a ton more in common with the Deschutes Chainbreaker white IPA I just had than Iíd have imagined. Lots of citrus and hops up front. Bright and peachy. This one had a tiny tiny bit of additional Belgian funk, but both are spicy. This one, at 8%, slightly more hefty, but having had these one after another, I canít believe theyre not brewed by the same peeps."

beastmaster (287) - Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle. First pour was chrisp clear dark yellow. Second got a little yeastys in it making it a bit cloudier. Huge huge head thick lacing. Funk, fruit punch, bannanas, cheery, and malt. Flavor is solid. Sourdough, spicy, sweet, hay, malty, light peppery hops, little to no bitterness and many spices that I can?t peg reminds me of what vanilla licorice would taste like. Creamy mouth but has a surprisingly medium mouth feel. Fantastic belgian.

revolution2718 (242) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Pours a hazy golden with lots of sediment, and dat dere huge rocky head. Nose is Belgian yeast, fruit esters, banana, a bit of floral hops, herbal. Taste is fruity, yeast is somewhat muted for a saison, a herbal hop presence, peppercorn, a bit funky on the finish. I can taste/ feel a bit of the high ABV, was hoping for more carb pretty low on the saison scale. It's good, hennepin is better. Missing some yeast and barnyard character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KansaiBeerLvrs (2176) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle shared by Nie. An opaque straw gold with a giant fluffy head and a really nice spicy lemon saison aroma I dig. Very smooth with a medium-full mouthfeel. The taste is bready, spices, a bit of farmhouse funk and lemon. My kind of saison - solid.

Insanely good saison. Grapefruit and citrusy spiciness dominate this beer. Nice dry finish. Delicious.
