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.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle thanks to robloc303. Thanks! Pours a hazy gold with a white head of foam. Aroma is floral and yeasty. floral taste is overpowering. Good, but not great.

Huge bottle (0,75 liters), bought at a Vinmonopol in Oslo in november 2012.</br></br> The initial aroma (just after popping the cork) was so good I literally applauded. (The applause might also be a side effect of being excited by having just listened to the Game of Thrones theme song.) </br></br>Wonderfully fruity-hoppy aroma, with the Belgian yeast elements one would expect (something like artificial banana flavor, and bubblegum). Golden, almost pilsner-like color. Nice head. Lots of sediment floating around even though I think I’ve been quite careful when handling the bottle. The flavors do follow the aroma. Hops, some fruits. I find it quite hard to describe, actually. The alcohol is surprisingly noticable. The mouthfeel is medium to light, I’d say, so in that regard it’s quite easy to drink. The carbonation is fairly high, yet still quite soft on the tongue. I’m not sure if I like the alcohol taste that much though. Tastewise, I find it well balanced. Neither sweet nor bitter or sour, but a bit astringent from the alcohol. After a while it mellowed out though. Nice beer, but not as overwhelming as I had anticipated.

dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2013
So subtle but so delicious. Pours a golden color with a tinge of cloudiness and a big white head. The aroma is mildly vegetal with some barnyard funk and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is mild but the refreshing crisp finish makes this a gulpable beer. The glass is empty way too quickly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DeliveryDriver (170) - Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Pours bright golden with a big, foamy head and some yeast particles floating around. Had aromas of cloves and other spices, as well as some banana bread. Flavor was big on the yeast, sweet and bready. Not as big as 8% would indicate, but still pretty big. Had an aftertaste of cloves. This was nothing special, but was still pretty good.

Pours a hazy yellow colour with a white head. Aroma of fresh mango, peach, grapefruit and some caramel sweetness. Flavour of caramel, yeast, mango, kiwi, floral hops, hay and pinapple. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a sweet, floral, citrusy finish. Really refreshing and enjoyable.
