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.

Nice Saison beer. Light and floral. Not a huge fan of saison beers, but this is worth another buy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow! Fantastic Belgian . . . wonderfull grass, meadow, pear aromas . . . palate is perfect (its got some zing but not too carbonated - perfect). Appearance is crisp straw/golden with a BIG 4 finger head of medium size bubbles that settles down to a one finger. This is a DELICOUS beer! Off to buy more tomorrow.

SaintMatty (6728) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2013
355ml Bottle - Golden with a foamy white head. Lemon, yeast, spice and a hint of banana in the aroma. Hoppy, sweet and fruity taste with notes of yeast, banana, lemon meringue pie and coriander standing out. Enjoyable and authentic, yet with a modern twist.

camborne (656) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Citrus spice nose but understated. Taste follows suit. Could be amazing but mine was a bit dull. Finish is really smooth.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 16, 2013
750 ml bottle. Golden and hazy, and with floaties. Very tall white fluffy head that clings to the glass. Spicy orangey funky yeast nose. Soap. Light in the nose, but really complex. High carbonation level. Refreshing flavours. Spritzy and malty, but body is light given the alcohol content. Quite a bit of bitterness towards the finish. Some residual sweetness, but it is a dangerously drinkable saison. Very nice.
