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.

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 (3385) - 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.

marcus (6489) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Pours light yellow with a foamy white head and a magnificent fruity aroma. There is a subdued sour citrus flavor with a strange but delicious yeasty finish. A bit hoppier than most saisons.

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
On tap into a tulip at Twisted Spoke...A clear medium gold with a light tan head, good retention, ok lacing...The aroma is a typical saison, floral notes, good but average in complexity...The taste is really good, floral hops, but a nice sweetness makes this quite drinkable. An above average straight forward saison worth trying.

Bottle thanks to CanIHave4Beers. Pours hazy dark golden with huge, firm white head. Nose of grassy, citrusy hops, bready yeast, and spice. Tastes similar with the spice coming through as ginger a bit. Nice lively palate and dry finish. This was great.

On tap; pour is cloudy golden with a nice proper white head. Sticky lacing and average retention in this tulip. Nice Belgian yeast note on the nose; the flavor profile and aromas are nearly authentic by my estimation, which I think is your biggest issue with american iterations in general. Peach, lemongrass, and spices are present, with that farmhouse quality you would expect. slight bitter tinge at the end.
