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.

eaglefan538 (2920) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 2, 2012
On draft at my house, courtesy of Stateline liquors. Pour is a hazy straw with a thin white colored head. The latter is perhaps the least impressive part of this beer. The aroma is floral, spicey, and sweet. The flavor follows, phenolic elements tempered (slight pepper) with a definite hop presence, citrus notes, slight funk, yeast. , some spicing. Body is full to moderate, light carbonation, especially for the style.

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2012
12oz and 750ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a thin wisp of white head that recedes quickly. The aroma is citrus and pine hops and fruity yeasts with notes of plum, pineapple, pear, cinnamon, and coriander. A hit of piny hops start the taste and then subside to a fruity yeast character, that is subdued. The finish is mildly dry and tart. Medium body with a nice dry finish, medium carbonation. Very refreshing.

Hazy gold with a pillowy white head. Aroma is lemony, zest, light sweetness, and a bit of yeast. Very inviting. Medium to full body. Flavor isn’t as lemon forward as the aroma suggests. Citrus, floral, light biscuit, sweet malts, tropical citrus, and light candied sugar. Top-notch brew.

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.
