COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Most breweries have at least one piece of equipment thatís just a bit persnickity. Here at Boulevard itís 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:   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.

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.

Rating #600, thanks to Nick in Chicago. Beautiful deep pour for a saison with foamy white head, looks juicy and hoppy. sweet bubblegum fresh nose countered by nice hopping. Very juicy saison, full fruitiness before finishing dry. Very tasty, a juicy hop saison.

mansquito (3281) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 9, 2011
From Tennessejed420: Pours a formidable white head over a slightly hazy yellow body. Looks quite like a good saison ought to look. Aroma of plenty of fruity things. There is also a little bit of yeast there. The overt hoppiness or funk is not really in the aroma. However, upon drinking it, the mild bitterness from the hops becomes a wee bit more apparent. It is subdued, and thus lets the other flavors develop. The beer itself is very subtle, as it does a variety of different things at a time. The sweet fruit flavors are present in the front, but then the astringency and spiciness builds up to a dry finish. After which, a mild aftertaste remains.
