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.

toxichop (470) - South Gate, California, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Glad to see Boulevard in CA. A; Hoppy, with mango and grapefruit filling up the air, some hay, hint of funk and spices. P: hazy yellow with an inch or two head. T: really on the sweet triple side with slight tropical hops, spices and some funky yeast. M: medium body with semi-dry bitterness. O: good, its a saison but seems to also have characters of other beer styles.

maxwelldeux (4158) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a small head. Very little smell to it - I get a faint citrus note, but that’s it. Taste is light and easy with some very slightly sour citrus notes. Not too bad.

reebtogi (4746) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 4, 2012
355ml bottle pours a light golden orange color with a generous white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild lemon with other light fruits with some yeast. Taste is lemony sourness with some malty and fruity sweetness and a dry yeasty finish. Light to medium body with some abundant carbonation leaving a pleasant tickle on the tongue. Alcohol is well hidden. A nicely done saison that is highly recommended.

streve (105) - Maryland, USA - NOV 4, 2012
12oz bottle. Pour was a yellowish straw color with a huge frothy white head. Aroma is citrus and fruity with the Belgian yeast note. Mouth is all citrus with a mild-to-moderate bite up front. The citrus drives through, and picks up a somewhat dry finish. Good balance and quite refreshing.

AdamChandler (3521) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 4, 2012
This is an interesting beer. Cloud bright orange. 3 finger pillowy head. Citrus and bread on the nose. Wheaty as well. Taste is sort of this chewy, bready wheat bomb. Nice citrus finish. Start is pretty nice as well. Medium body.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2012
Shared corked 0.75l bottle @ Boulevard tasting. This one pours a light blurry to cloudy orange-yellow thing with a big and somewhat lasting just off-white top. Yeah, it smells quite nice. I get a really subtle and elegant fruity sweetness, saison yeast, banana sweetness and some soft hints of green pine cones. Nice stuff. It’s average+ on the carbonation and it has a oily mouthfeel. Nice flavors also. More saison yeast in the taste. Light subtle dried Belgian orange zest, grapefruit - something that goes again in many of these Boulevard brews. Some clear unmasked alcohol hints in the finish. 01.10.2012
