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.

On tap 7/20/2012. Pours a hazy pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma is yeast, spice, and citrus. Taste is spicy and fruity with some yeast taste at the end. Very good.

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. Havenít 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.

Aroma was light, slight hop and spicy yeastyness. Color was pale yellow, clear. Flavor was hopped and sharp, accompanied by light carbonation, but mellows nicely. Does finish with a little bitter hoppiness. Very fun mix of hopped farmhouse pale beer. Had on tap at breckenridge ballpark pub on 7/21/12.

Drinking on tap at maxís baltimore. Straight forward wild yeast flavor. A lot of citrus with a moderate bitterness. Sweet finish.

I like it. Have not tried many farmhouse/saison ales to compare to but overall a pretty good beer.
