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.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2014 Flaska från Systembolaget. Ljust, ljust halmgul med kritvitt väldigt livligt skum. Doft av citrus, våt filt, hö och en liten antydan av kryddpeppar. Kraftig beska och en jästig, typisk belgisk smak. Alkoholen fyller på med en expansiv munkänsla och hetta.

Bomber from the local supermarket.

What’s the deal with American saisons? So many exceed 8%, which seems unsaisonlike, Avec Le Bon Vieux notwithstanding. This one pours golden with a whipped eggwhite head. Huge Amarillo nose, big candied grapefruit soaked in pineapple juice, very slight funk, hints of spice. The flavor is at once bigger (I didn’t realize it was 8.5%), sweeter, and hoppier than expected. This thing is basically an IIPA as best as I can tell. Not a good thing. I don’t mind a hopped-up saison, but it better be bone dry. This one ain’t that by any measure. Not what I was looking for (dry and thirst-quenching, hence the ding to palate) in tonight’s saison. Not a worthy replacement for the Smokestack Saison.

Slight banana flavor, very carbonated. Bronze/amber color. Refreshing and smooth finish. Great for warm summer nights. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy, golden orange pour with buoyant yeast friendlies. Big pillowy white head. Malt, doughy yeast on the nose. Spiciness up front. Citrus. Grass. Medium bodied, nice carbonation with baby bitter finish. Good brew.

This didn’t have to do too good to be my top beer from Missouri, but it went far beyond that. Excellent muted clean malt behind some mighty tasty yeast flavors. Head is soapy with a head that lasted on a minute. Got some chill haze. There are some serious flaws here that should be worked out because this is a pretty damn good beer that could be great.

Hazy golden pour with a huge foamy head, some lacing. Citrus, coriander, and sweet bread in the nose. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Fullbodied and long aftertaste of a spicy cake.

MrHangover (3802) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2013
Tap , @ FreshCraft, Denver. Pours a hazy golden beer with a thin white head. Aroma is faint, funky, barnyard and some raisins. Flavour is funky sour, fresh and has a medium sweet finish. Long lasting, dry mouthfeel. Decent brew.

More hops than I expected, but a very good beer. It got better as it warmed up and more of the subtle belgian flavored emerged. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap, a favorite of mine. Great golden color and sweet aroma. Smooth for an 8.5. Bready with a little caramel and apple. Great mouth feel with a little bitterness at the finish.
