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.

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.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Hazy golden coloured with a large white head. It has a spicy citrus and vanilla flavour with herbal and slight tart notes followed by a creamy floral, dry, warming finish. An excellent Tripel style beer!

Citric aroma. Watery texture. Some powdery notes of malt. Some sweet. Head disappears quickly. Unfortunate strong metallic overtones.

Couldn’t agree more with Salmaneser and previous raters. Picked up a four pack at local Jumbo supermarket. This new development of supermarkets carrying foreign and unknown brands of beer is really great. I brought down the temperature in the old fashoined put-it-in-the-freezer way and I am enjoying this at the moment. I immediatly recognized the American love of citrus in beers although it’s not distubing. For the rest, read Salmanesers previous review.
