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.

I am not a fan of this type of brew. That being said this is a nice aromatic floral beer, lots of flavor and very perfumed. It is stronger on the bitter side, which is strange considering that this beer is so fruity. It held a good head, and I am not sure what the IBU rating was but this one was rather interesting in how close it tasted to an IPA.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Pours a light, crisp hay with a very slight head. Aroma is spicy and citrusy like an IPA from but with the malt and yeast balance of a belgian. Taste is citrus up front with grapefruit, spice, and biscuity yeast. Very crisp and refreshing without a hint of the higher level ABV.

DocLock (8500) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2012
750 cc from State Line. Pours turbid canary with 3-finger clingy white head that laces well. Nose is dry, spicy, with floral hops, yeasty malt, and fruit. Tastes dry, very floral up front, with mid-palate hops, fruit, and yeasty malt. Very complex and easy to drink, this one is stellar.

JDBaker11058 (1517) - Maryland, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Appearance: lightly hazed straw with a huge and fluffy white head that left tons of lace. Aroma: mmm…citrus, yeast, funk, rice, passion fruit, kiwi. Taste: citrus and light, crackery funk up front, over a solid bed of yeasty spices. Finish: all that delicious front slowly fades to a light, tingly bitterness. Notes: Great saison. Creamy/light mouth, and you’d never know it was an 8% abv. Absolutely great.

A great flavor from Boulevard, Citrus flavors are abundant with all the hops. A delicious offering on a hot summer evening.

Bottle into Boulevard tulip. A- Straw with generous two finger head.Cloudy. S - Yeasty, ester, hard to describe but nice smell, smells like it might be a bit sour. T- Clean, crisp, a bit sour. M- Thin, a bit undercarbed. This is a nice beer, would probably give higher ratings but its just not my style. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-17-2012 04:13:39

Two finger head upon pour. First had at Savor and was very impressed with this one. Apparently, Boulevard must think highly of it as well since they served it 2 years in a row. Very nice carbonation, and pleasing aroma. Haven’t had a ton of saisons but this is highly enjoyable. Wonderful taste and mouthfeel leaves you wanting more with a nice touch of the abv towards the end. This is a highly drinkable summer type beer with a lot going on, far superior to a lot of seasonal offerings. Happy that I have access to this one on a consistent basis.
