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 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a clear golden with a dense and creamy white head leaving laces. Spicy, yeasty nose. Medium body, sweet fruitiness, somewhat phenollic with lots of yeast. The fruitiness really drives this. Somewhat astringent finish. Not a bad Saison. 270411

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2011
Bottle:   Dirty golden, lots of floaties, hues fluffy white head, very sticky lacing.   Barnish nose, overly bright floral notes.   Very yeasty as well, especially on the tongue.   Also barnish/musty on the tongue.   Floral, but not so bright.   Has a slight hoppy aspect to it that others dont usually have.   Body and mouthfeel are pretty good, moderate to full.   Has this shrub brush sorta floralness to it.   Otherwise it seems pretty decent, for an American made example at least.   Dry floral finish.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 18, 2011
Pale yellow champagne body that ebulliently feeds a foam tower. The nose explodes with complexity. Funky grapefruit yeast with barnyard spunk, traces of uric acid, and hay. The body is twangy and herbal, quite reminiscent of a gruit. Sprityz and could be easily mistaken for a lightweight brew despite it is heavy alcoholic content, which is well masked. Twangy sweet, off-balance mouthful of fresh, wet green grass.

Suliman (28) - USA - APR 18, 2011
On tap at Euclid Hall in Denver. Pours golden yellow with thin white head that dissipates quickly. Citrus (grapefruit) aroma. Good mouthfeel with tastes of grapefruit and some mild hops. Not much funk unfortunately.

Farmhouse saison with a little funk.bread, hay, cereal, grass aroma. thicker mouthfeel than color would have you anticipate. make sure to get all you’re sediment out of the bottle with the good old swirl of the last 1/8. makes for rocky head. barnyard aromas for suregolden, cloudy, rocky to frothy head... light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, creamy, lively. becoming a gateway beer for bros in kansas city which is fine with me. good stuff.
