COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Most breweries have at least one piece of equipment thats just a bit persnickity. Here at Boulevard its 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.

Pours cloudy gold with long lasting foamy white head. The description is pretty accurate - strong tropical fruits on the nose, citrus, banana, coriander, bread, pepper. Body is crisp and dry. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet. Excellent saison. Much better than I expected.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Storo enjoyed at home
Golden misty, huge white head. Smells of citrus hops, spice, yeast and malts. Taste is medium sweet, quite dominant yeast which i like alot, some spices and fruityness. Moderate bitte rfinish, some citrus hops in there. Very nice saison, good hops infused in both flavors and aroma. A world class saison i would say

RedSox2004 (1587) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Hazy golden yellow with a rich foamy two-finger bright white head and outstanding lace. Aromas of lemon, yeast, floral hops, and toast. Citrus flavors accompanied by biscuity malt and barnyard yeast. Light body, lively and active caronation, ticklishly prickly and sticky mouthfeel, and an extraordinary crisp and dry finish.
