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 of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge. Woaw, that’s a nice discover. The colour is golden as well as clear, with a nice hoppy aroma. Great Taste of hops, as good as the aftertaste. Go for it, now !

radiomgb (2505) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2015
355ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Golden orange in colour with a lasting white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of yeast, lemons, peppery spice. The flavour is lightly bitter, yeasty, funky, citrus and fruity. Finishes long, funky and bitter.

cattaneopapa (231) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2015
355ml bottle from LCBO @ Laird, Toronto, ON. 8.5% alc/vol. Pours a somewhat hazy deep gold colour with two finger of white head. Aroma of caramel, banana and a whiff of fruity aromatics. Taste matches the aroma which leads to a dry & hoppy finish. Moderate carbonation. High level of alcohol is concealed well.

gEUS (1482) - Linden, BELGIUM - AUG 3, 2015
330 ml bottle at home. Pours clear yellow. Light funk aromaand peppery saison, one of the few American saisons that come close to the typical Belgian Original aroma profile - makes one think of a mixture of Supont with Tripel Karmeliet, so yes a bit too much on the cloves and curacao spice side for me. Medium body, sweet, soft bitter, nice carbonation. Sweet grapefruit flacours, spicy finish. Quite nice.

Barrelbelly (706) - BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2015
Golden with large head. Nice fruity hop nose, not sour as a saison can be. Reminds more of a light IPA.

chris__hartley (325) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2015
It pours hazy gold with ochre tinges; the head is off-white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: grapefruit, orange-zest, and alcohol. The taste is medium bitter; there are notes of: grapefruit, orange, pepper, alcohol, and plums. The palate is medium bodied, has medium-heavy carbonation and a medium finish. Overall, it’s pretty boozy for a saison.
