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.

esp0r (2378) - NORWAY - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Storo enjoyed at home
Golden misty, huge white head. Smells of citrus hops, spice, yeast and malts. Taste is medium sweet, quite dominant yeast which i like alot, some spices and fruityness. Moderate bitte rfinish, some citrus hops in there. Very nice saison, good hops infused in both flavors and aroma. A world class saison i would say

RedSox2004 (1449) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Hazy golden yellow with a rich foamy two-finger bright white head and outstanding lace. Aromas of lemon, yeast, floral hops, and toast. Citrus flavors accompanied by biscuity malt and barnyard yeast. Light body, lively and active caronation, ticklishly prickly and sticky mouthfeel, and an extraordinary crisp and dry finish.

thellgren (478) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2013
0.75 l bottle from Arkadia Alko, Helsinki (Special Collection). Nice big white head, cloudy yellow colour. Quite mild taste with some fruits especially citrus. Also some grapefruit from the hops. Easy to drink despite the high content of alcohol. Does not go well with spicy food, but some fish sandwiches were fine with this.

Lilja (2185) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2013
Doft till en början av mango och litchi som senare övergår till mer belgisk jäst och citrus. Rund, len, väldigt fruktig, välbalanserad med en apelsinskalsbeska och pommerans eftersmak. Riktigt fin.
