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.

Bottled:
Golden, hazy colour. Large, fluffy head. Aroma is yeast, orange marmalade and some leafy hops. Flavour is citrus, yeast and orange peels leading to a dry and slightly alcoholic finish. Really good!

Vignale (2539) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2013
Flaska från SB. Gyllengul, med lite jästsediment och vitt stort skum. Stor fruktig doft från både jäst och humle. Estrig jäst och citrushumle som och har sötare inslag av lichie och mango. Välbalnserad, frisk, fruktig smak, liten fruktig sötma och växnde pomerans och apelsin beska. Riktigt god.

Malty sweet aroma. Upfront sweetness and spices. Medium carbonation. Some coppery notes in the finish. Smooth mouth feel.

PalCabral (144) - SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2013
75cl bottle from Systembolaget. Pour hazy straw blonde with a massive fluffy wheat induced head. The aroma is peppery and fruity, absolutely delicious and thirst driving. Taste is also peppery with bitterness backing some citrusy sweetness. It nice but maybe a tad one-dimensional - maybe too much wheat? Overall, a great beer with one of the most enticing aromas I have nosed. Goody stuff.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with big white head. Crisp, straw flavor on front end, with a dry farmhouse flavor. Slight metallic taste. Pretty drinkable saison.

One of my favorite regulars. Pours with thick creamy head, nice lacing, nose of spiced Orange sweet rolls, with alcohol. Taste citrus, spice, bananna esters, grassy hops with a nice malt/slight acid finish to chew on. Nice carbonation. Well balanced for this style. Not overly spiced like a lot of other saisons I’ve tried. Arguably, the best mistake that boulevard has made

Very hazy gold beer, good white head. Light crisp palate, semi dry. Bitterish seltzer minerals vie with fresh bitter hops the impart a little fruit but mostly bitterness. Palate gets softer before the semi dry finish. Somehow it all works!

jeremyh70 (882) - Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Cloudy gold color with big head and lacing with great retention. Can detect the yeast in the aroma with grapefruit and some spice also apparent. Has a little earthiness of a Saison. Yeast and light grain in taste with sweet citrus and mild spice. Slight tartness and a little bitterness also. Nice and light tasting and very drinkable. I was pleasantly surprised. Really liked it cold. Would buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
