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.

On tap, pours a cloudy orange/golden. Usually not a big fan of Saisons but this was an exception. Smooth dispite the 8.5 abv, spicey, fruity, nice hop, medium body, soft carbonation.

Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja hieman sameana, vaahto on kolmen sormen paksuinen ja hienoa mosaiikkipitsiä jättävä sekä pinnalle ohuena kerroksena jäävä. Upean näköinen olut. Hajussa tuntuu vahvana puumainen havuisuus sekä sitrus. Trooppisempaakin hedelmää on hieman joukossa. Myös belgisaisonin mausteinen ja karviaismainen hiivaisuus tuoksuu taustalla. Maku on vahvemmin belgin suuntaan kääntyvä, siitä löytyy sitrusmaista, mausteista ja marjaista (karviaista ja marjapensaan lehteä) hiivaisuutta, jota tukemassa on jenkkiläisempi sitrusmainen sekä parfyyminen humalointi, lievää pihkaisuuttakin on havaittavissa. Suutuntuma on hiilihappoinen, mutta kuitenkin todella öljyinen, humaloinnin nipistellessä suussa, erinomainen fiilis. Hieno hybridi, jossa maut nivoutuvat loistavasti yhteen ja suutuntuma sekä ulkonäkö hipovat täydellisyyttä.

kevinator (1845) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Really good and unique Saison. Very fruity and yeasty aroma. This was a refreshing beer. Clear straw color with a full white head. Medium weight with good carbonation and a crisp finish. Good mix of flavors. Light fruitiness with grains and a nice spicy, peppery finish. The alcohol was really well hidden and I could drink a couple of these.

Bottle. Hazy gold, with bountiful white airy cap that rests to a rocky froth. Great barn funk, orange and lemon. Taste is mild citrus and yeast, but mostly grassy.

Well done. Pours clear yellow with fluffy head. Aroma is dull citrus and musty. Goes down easy with a dry Belgian yeast finish.
