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.

Spelt (231) - East Kingston, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Rich citrus hop aroma strong on grapefruit. Very slight funky note. Nice pale yellow with thick haze and tall white head. Taste is abruptly sour but more sour like grapefruit than sour like a belgian. Has even some saltiness like a Gose. Strong alcohol note in the finish. reasonably dry.

GraffitiVandal (127) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 26, 2015
ENG: 12fl. oz. bottle from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the Teku glass. Yellow to light orange, opalescent (or hazy) color with big, white head and a lot of lacing. Looks great. Aromas of horse stud, cloves, bananas, citrusy background. Tastes very rich, deep yeasty - clovy, funky, citrusy with some champagne booziness. Clovy aftertaste. Medium to high carbonation, medium body. Overall very funky and rich Belgian-styled brew!

PL: Butelka 12fl. oz (o ile się nie mylę to 355ml), zakupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do Teku. Barwa żółta do jasno-pomarańczowej, opalizująca (nieco zmętniona), piana jasna, bardzo obfita z pięknym lejsingiem. Aromaty końskie, goździki, banany, w tle cytrusy. W smaku bardzo bogate, głębokie nuty drożdżowe, goździkowe, dzikie, cytrusy oraz szampański booze. W posmaku goździkowe. Średnie do wysokiego nasycenie, średnie odczucie w ustach. Podsumowując bardzo dzikie i bogate piwo w belgijskim stylu!

ljthiessen (646) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy golden yellow pour with a thick, foamy white head. Lots of citrus zest, some floral notes, tropical fruits, yeast, coriander and other spices - slightly tart, full-bodied, complex and enticing. Warming - high ABV is very evident - and a nice carbonation. Everything a strong saison should be.

Evolutionary (348) - Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle from giant eagle na. Nose is Belgian and crisp. Thinnish body and clean. Light apple and sweet esters mixed into the malt. Somewhat bready too. Decent but not overwhelming.

BeerBunker (844) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2015
On tap. Pours golden yellow with a big, foamy white head. Aroma is of spice, wheat, banana, and malt. Taste is very spicy, with a lot of wheat and bready malt. A lot of banana as well. The whole thing has an underlying peppery character. Lingering pepper taste. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Body is medium and heavily carbonated. Drinks easy. Not bad.

Savage_Night (56) - California, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Pours hazy light orange with a nice white head. Head retention is great. AROMA: Orange, funk, citrus, hop floral notes, slight bitterness, herbs, light peppercorn, white wine and slight tart. TASTE: Orange, tart, funk, caramel, citrus, herbs, hop oils, malt, light spice, slight bread, faint alcohol and hop bitterness. AFTER TASTE: Orange, peppercorn, hop bitterness, tart, slight funk and malt with a oily yet crisp finnish. BOTTLE: Best by date 07-2013, Batch # 712293, today’s date 05/21/2015. I re-corked it. Thinking of doing a side-by-side with a fresher bottle. it’s a great balanced brew with many great aromas/flavors but I would like to compare it with a younger batch. Will review this brew again soon.

JefVerstraete (1966) - Ghent, BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2015
Draft @ Café Mombasa, Borgerhout. Sweet citrus aroma with bready malty notes. Grapefruit and tropical fruit. Strange style, mix of saison, IPA and tripel. Not bad at all.
