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.

arkurzynski (1653) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Draft at Flying Saucer KC. Brilliant golden, almost amber. Aroma of light dried citrus, spice, and floral hops. Flavor is initially light biscuity malt and citrus that gives way to a moderate floral bitterness as well as lightly bitter orange peel. Fresh, crisp, lightly dry with a little residual citrus fruit sweetness.

This is my white whale. It hits everything I like in a beer and as a saison/farmhouse, it is a master of the style.

From a bomber, pour is light straw color, fizzy head that disappears rapidly. Nose is heavy grapefruit, Belgian yeast. Taste was citrus and mild spices. Mouth feel was light, fizzy and finished dry. Enjoyed this farmhouse ale.

rarbring (1686) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 16, 2012
Aroma: Smelling spicy, cloves, coriander, cardamom, vinegar, grape-fruit juice, some toffee and a metallic hint.
Appearance: A clouded dark straw colored brew, a white high head, little lacing but good curtains.
Taste: Starting with sweet fructose notes, oranges, grape-fruit peel and the aromatic spices.
Palate: Medium carbonation, foamy bubbles, a big body, a dry finish.
Overall: A very nice and modern old ale. Fabulous with a casserole.
Note: Big bottle at De Klomp sampling. Reviewed 2012-09-15.
