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.

Very balanced, though not without a yeasty funk you won't forget. Crisp but unfiltered, reviving but not gentle. An amazing beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mmm. Good beer. Had to give it a high appearance mark on the head alone. ..frothy and long-lasting. Nice light-golden color. Strong grapefruit aroma, tastes fruity and floral, doesn’t taste like a 8% abv.

Way too hoppy to be a real saison, but somehow it just makes it better. The flagship of a great brewery.

Bottle. Golden yellow pour with tan head. Light wheat and yeast aromas. Light sweetness, spice and wheat tones. Wouldn’t have realized the ABV without knowing it.

Bottle pour into awesome Belgian glass from Brussels. Beautiful color like a darker orange/golden. Impressive head that holds up as the beer is consumed. Lacing to make a fancy dinner setting jealous. Good balance of hops and sweet with some citrus notes. Maintains a consistent complex flavor throughout with the only minor complaint being a slight funk aftertaste. All in all a great beer and another stellar option from a really good brewery.

750ml bottle - A really excellent beer and enjoyable enough to watch my Raiders beat-up on the Chargers. Aroma has a nice balance between hops and malts, lots of funky/spicy notes to keep my nose interested in smelling it. Flavor is malty, sweet, tart, citrusy with a surprisingly long finish. Really nice buy.

Damn good beer, tho it’s pushing the envelope a bit. Bottle opened with a big pop at a good temperature and poured with a huge, foamy, frothy, fluffy, cream-colored head that lasts a very long time and some lace. Color is very slightly hazy yellow amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is dominated by lovely fresh hop, citrus, a bit of resin. Flavor’s much like nose with again hop in front backed with some malt sweet and some bitter. Traditional saison characteristics have been supplanted by the hop domination. Body/carbonation are excellent. Finish is like flavor, hop strength carries thru for a very long time and only a little alcohol warmth. Great drinking beer. Wish we could get it locally.
