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.

dmac (5377) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2013
12oz bottle via trade with radarsock. Poured a great looking hazy gold body with a huge fluffy bright white head that just doesnít quit and leaves gobs of lace everywhere. Aroma is nice, barnyard funkiness, lemons, hay, honey, flowers, tangerine meat, limes. Medium bodied with softer carbonation at first that picks up a bit towards the backside and a long lingering dry after taste. Flavor of toast, honey, citrus rinds, dry tangerine, flowers, yeast, barnyard. Good stuff here.

deaconmike (460) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Cloudy straw color, big frothy head that disapates fairly quickly into a nice cap; some splotchy lacing. Aroma is very appealing - Belgian yeast and citrus (lemony), also a little spice, maybe clove. Nice balanced taste - Belgian yeast, citrus (again - lemon to me), biscuit, a touch of soap. The finish is spicy, hoppy bitterness, somewhat dry. Very enjoyable beer.

BitchPls (744) - FINLAND - MAY 18, 2013
Clear, see through orange yellow beer with a very big foamy head. A very big aroma of Finnish home made mead with raisins, citrus and floral notes. Medium to full body with a good drinkability. Yeast, citrus, mild bitterness, crispiness and a hint of sourness all in perfect balance. Just a beautiful beer! Iím having this while watching the Eurovision song contest and this beer suits it fine! This is spring in a bottle - refreshing, energetic and brings happiness to your life! ;)

AZBennett (114) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow with a big white head that dissipates but leaves about a quarter inch for good measure. Aromas are fruits (predominately grapefruit and orange peel) coriander and other miscellaneous spices. Flavor is spice then grapefruit/citrus and a light malt note that is more akin with bread and soap then caramel. Palate is nice and light with just a tad undercarbonation for the style. Overall, an absolute stellar beer in a style I donít always favor, yet this would be in the top every single time!

I was able to taste this saison while taking my beer snobbery to new heights. I was at an event serving free beer, all of which was terrible. Instead of suffering through a flavorless evening, I headed down to the hotel bar and found this little gem available. Pour a hazy yellow with plentiful head. The palate had that wonderful bubbly consistency that keeps me coming back to farmhouse brews. Flavor was spicy, sweet, and savory all at once. This may become my go to farmhouse ale. Bottle - Proof & Provision - Atlanta, GA
