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.

0.75 l bottle from Arkadia Alko, Helsinki (Special Collection). Nice big white head, cloudy yellow colour. Quite mild taste with some fruits especially citrus. Also some grapefruit from the hops. Easy to drink despite the high content of alcohol. Does not go well with spicy food, but some fish sandwiches were fine with this.

Incredible aroma full of citrus and malt. Slight note of alcohol as it opens up. Very spot on with what I hope for when I pour a saison. It pours a deeper color than most saisons - amber/gold. Full thick white head that lasts. You immediately notice the alcohol up front in the taste. Very toasty finish with more citrus. A clean bitter ending. Not enough wheat / farm for me. A little too hoppy. Effervescent with an assertive feeling in the mouth. Medium to full body. A very solid saison, but too much hops for me. A bit too bitter.

imdownthepub (13226) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2016
Draught at The Purity Bar & Kitchen, Birmingham. Hazy gold with white head. Light, fresh, quite zesty saison, there is a green leafy character to the hop, hints of grapefruit. Just a touch of wet cardboard from over energetic carbonation but otherwise itís fine.

ibrubeer (302) - Omaha, USA - SEP 20, 2016
Draft @ Sheraton OKC. Slightly musty aroma. Clear dark golden color with white head, dissipates quickly. Flavor reminiscent of saison, slightly musty, clean. Med bodied. Overall, very easy drinking, very enjoyable.

Jack Stack, KCMO, draft. Dank, musty aroma. Malty, earthy taste. Medicine, bourbon aftertaste. Very much a farmhouse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gespuccian (129) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Pours golden yellow, generous fluffy white head. Nose is crisp, slightly citric, wild yeast. Taste is hop-forward, lemon, bitter, followed by some white bread and yeast. Palate starts bitter, but smoothes out with some sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TtV (401) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle 355ml. Hazy yellow with a huge fluffy white head. Great view in the glass. Aroma of citrus peels, dry hops, fruits. The taste is full: the IPA bitterness is present but not full force. I can taste fruits, malts, etc. The alcohol warmness in the aftertaste is the most noticeable thing to mention.

ArOma was a mix of saison and ipa. Yellow with a nice head. Body was a typical Belgian pale 8.5%. Light and easy to drink.
