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.

Bottle sample @ Boulevard intro tasting, Bergen. Pours a clear light orange body with a big off-white head. Nose is oranges, hay, saison yeast, grass, hints of banana, clove and grass. Very mellow and nice. Taste is caramel, orange peel, alcohol, fruity esters, hints of grass, banana and clove. Dry, citric-laced finish with some warming alcohol. Full body, medium carbonation. A very smooth, complex and yet highly drinkable saison; definitely the best from Boulevard so far this evening! :-)

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.
