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.

Quite a pale yellow color, had the banana and clove scent with a sweet taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Style et résumé: Saison belgo-américaine houblonnée à Amarillo.
Comment: Bouteille de 12oz encore une fois merci Slovak.
Description: Bière dorée éclatante avec une mousse blanche crémeuse. Le nez est citronné, il est frais. Les épices sont remarquables. La bouche est mordante, sauvage presque, la levure est bien présente. Il y a une bonne amertume en fin de bouche. J’aime cette bière.
Note: 7+/10

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2012 On tap in Sellersburg, Indiana of all places. I’ve had a couple Saisons before and am trying to get into them, but I’m not quite there yet. Also I’m rating this 48 hours after the fact, so details will be limited. Delivered in a stemmed tulip. Color is a beautiful, sunny orange with a small, light, pillowy white head. Good malt character. More hoppy than expected. Yeast character is more of the dank, barnyard variety. Overall, I definitely see the appeal of this beer, but saison yeasts still give me a little trouble. Will keep trying. **UPDATE** I had this a second time and my esteem for it increased. It was just about the perfect beer to have after a 40 mile bike ride in 90 degree heat. I’m bumping this up from a 3.4.

Poured from a 750 into tulip. Nice hazzy yellow with a firm head. Taste of citrus, grapefruity. Not lot of funk, just an iron like yeast taste. In a good way. Year round brew that I wish I could easily get in NYC. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

portableparty (1954) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours pale golden orange with a white tight soapy head that dissipates to a film and soapy lacing. Aroma sweet citrus like fruits and yeast. Taste is fruity and dry biscuit with subtle funk and must and some bitterness and spice. Palate has good crisp carbonation and finishes nice and dry. Very drinkable!

Pour out of 12 oz bottle is hazy orange with fluffy white head, aroma brought biscuit, pineapple, pear, white grape, spice and slight grass and vanilla. Taste is nice white grape, pear, biscuit, vanilla, slight pineapple, finishing fairly spicy and dry. Tasty stuff.

Originally reviewed: 12/8/10. Awesome bottle received as an extra from gwguest (BA) in a trade awhile ago. Thanks! Best by 7/8/11 - printed on the side. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass (the only one available at the time). Pours a cloudy deep gold with a large 3-finger white head on top. Excellent retention; left lots of lace behind. Very nice look. The nose has strong tones of pineapple, lemon cleaner, clove, and wet hay. More fruity than spicey. Good crisp mouth, as expected with the style. Moderate heft. Mildly sharp finish. The citrus comes through in the flavor, but where the spices were absent in the nose, they make themselves known more in the flavor. White peppery bite at the onset, mild funk in the middle, and there’s even a nice grassy hop smack on the end. Good beer. I like all the various nuances of this one. Unique and satisfying.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - APR 21, 2012
Pours a clear golden straw colour with a foamy white head. The aroma is big on the fruity esters, with some funk and spice thrown in for good measure, bit of grapefruit and lemon in there aswell. The flavour is also funky, fruity, a bit of sugar sweetness, some hops, touch of grapefruit and lemon in the finish. Not mind blowing, but very good.

(Des bouteilles obtenues via Marheb et dresden) Un liquide doré qui est traversé par de fins sédiments. Une mousse qui rappelle les plus belles saisons. Une dentelle imposante. Un nez intéressant par ses houblons citronnés et son empreinte rustique. Une touche poivrée sur un fond sucré de malts pils. Au goût, des fleurs sauvages et des herbes qui se font toucher par du poivre blanc. Une note de levure saison au travers d’indomptables élans fruités. Des céréales maltées qui perdent, avec contenance, quelques douceurs. Une bouche normale. Un pétillement qui s’accorde au style. Une texture crémeuse et fouettée. Une finale qui fait vibrer quelques cordes amères : un concerto des houblons et de la levure.
