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.

This beer pours a cloudy yellow with a thin white head leaving some good lacing down the sides. The aromas are yeast, lemon, and musk. The mouthfeel is watery, slightly acidic and tangy. Not too bad but jot great either. Cheers!

UPDATED: APR 7, 2011 Tasted on tap at the Flying Saucer in Kansas City, Missouri. A bit light, slightly cloudy yellow-orange appearance. Fairly hoppy, slightly yeasty, light citrusy Belgian ale nose. Again, quite hoppy and bitter flavor for a Belgian ale but I guess thatís the new American trend. Somewhat yeasty, orange and grapefruit citrusy flavor. Hoppy bitter yet citrusy sweet finish. I personally am not a fan of hoppy saisons but this is a pretty good one.

golden color with patchy lacing and an egg-shell white head. lightly carbonated. light barnyard and must in the aroma, bit of lemon and airplane glue. flavor has has more must, less fruit and a bit of alcohol. aroma was promising, but flavor lacked a bit. overall, a pretty good beer, but nothing special.

Damico (2553) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2010
The aroma is crisp and grapefruity. The color is golden with an orange hue and a bubbly white head. The flavor is a combo of warming funk with some spiciness and zest to round it off. This beer, as all of Boulevardís I have tried, is delicious. Thanks Vince!

Tallahassee, Fl - Proof - part of a Friday night tasting. Nice light golden, murky pour with a long lasting white head. Fresh aroma of lemon and spices. Flavor is full bodied and refreshing. Flavor has a citrusy bent to it with lots of lemon, some minty accents, and a buttery back end. Overall a nice enticing sweetness that just calls out for more! Thick rich mouthfeel with the right amount of spritz.

750 C&C from Wine & Cheese in Clayton,MO. Buy from them. Do that. Pours dishwater gold with a 2 finger frothy white head. Aromas of celery, pale malt and fruit and funk. Medium body with very smooth and creamy carbonation. Flavor is richly rich (yes, Iím drinking hard today) veg and hop. Itís fruity/citrus/grapefruit leaving a nice bitterness in the ending. This is really really good beer. Compared to Odonata? They just arenít on the same wavelength. Each is super fantastic in its own way. Get this beer.
