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.

Bottle. Lemony yellow, medium white head. Aroma 'Belgian', yeast, some malt, hints of citrus. Rather full mouthfeel, bitter sweet taste, finish bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brettsky06 (96) - Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 26, 2016
Straw yellow color with a finger of white foam. Light citrus and grassy aromas. I haven’t had a saison with such a high alcohol content before but it comes together really nice with some citrus and grapefruit flavours. A really nice saison

This brew is hard to describe. It reminds me of a more of a bourbon/whiskey type drink with a high alcohol flavor. Pleasant yet the same time a funky taste. I was like another reviewer liked it at first but then it was too hard to drink. It comes in a four-pack so two per sitting would be about right.

EvNa (11) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2016
Bottle. Clear golden color. Taste bittersweet, hop, yeast, herbs. Strong and dry in your mouth. At first I liked this beer more, but taste gets a bit harsh and unpleasant after a while.

Nice golden colour with a fruity aroma. Hoppy with a light bitterness. Long dry, almost sourish aftertaste. Will buy again.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear yellow to golden with a medium white head and an aroma of fresh fruits (grapefruit, citrus, banana, peach), spices (clove, vanilla, coreander), sweet malts and yeast. The taste is medium sweet with a medium body and high carbonation. Very nice!
