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.

a few pints at the local bar near work. Was surprised to see this on tap since it seems like mostly a bud light kind of place. Cloudy yellow color with very bright white half inch head. The aroma is orange blossom with some fresh hay. The taste turns that citrus element a bit more lemon and the malt is stronger as well. lightly sweet and refreshing as a saison ought to be. easy drinking for an 8%abv, knocked me for a loop after the second pint. loving much of what i am getting from boulevard these days

Really fresh, bright aroma, sugared, golden raisins.. full-bodied, nice mouthfeel, well-balance on the palate, little bit of alcohol in the finish but doesn’t overpower; well done.

illidurit (2243) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 7, 2012
12 ounce bottle courtesy of scray24, poured into a Unibroue tulip. Grapefruit color with a towering white head. Fresh citrusy aroma with lemons and candied oranges, vanilla sheet cake, light menthol. Flavor tends more toward bready malts, slightly sweet dough, oranges, cough drop herbs, honey. On the sweet side midpalate, but a dry straw/barnyard finish with a subtle astringency dries it out and gives it a nice saison feel. Easy to see why innoculating this with brett is such a good idea.

Marheb (3055) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 3, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2012 Les agrumes soutiennent son corps hyper-effervescent. La finale est poivré, épicé et très sèche. Belle complexité dans sa simplicité.

Tap. Pours a rich gold. The aroma is yeasty and the flavor has a traditional spicy, yeasty punch to it. Good in small doses.

Bottle. Aroma: Very hoppy, notes of some citrus and straw/hay. Appearance: Cloudy golden pour with frothy, white, lasting head. Taste: Strong fruity flavor, especially lemon and hops, very round taste, slightly sour with a bitter finish. Medium body, lively carbonation, and an average finish with slight bitterness. Good, effervescent ale, with some strong straw/hay/lemon notes that make this a sour yet refreshing beer.

bookman10 (725) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Pours a cloudy, light, golden yellow with good-sized, frothy, standing head. Aroma of wheat and spice. Flavor is fruity, with some spice to it--similar esters as in a wheat beer. Rather sour finish to the beer, but not a bad saison.

SPDickerman (1050) - Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Pours opaque yellow-orange with a large bright white head. Smells fruity with a hint of barnyard funkiness, earthy notes and some malt sweetness, perfect for the style. Taste follows the nose almost perfectly with a bit stronger barnyard and earthy notes. Light-medium bodied with a smooth, spicy texture and decent mouth-carbonation, Boulevard Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale finishes with faint dryness.

jhamp9 (1278) - Corinth, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Pours a hazy golden orange with a big pillowy white head and really nice lacing. Aroma is clove, coriander, some lemon, and wheat. Taste its the same spice with citrus and banana. Nice bitterness. Very lively on the palate. Really enjoyable.

Westmeister (2061) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with big fluffy white head. Smell is lemon citrus with citrus hops and rich rich grain and yeast. Taste is citrus zest, light spice, clove, pepper and yeast. This is really light and so good. Even though a bit lighter than I am used to, it is still a fantastic brew.
