COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

One of my favorite regulars. Pours with thick creamy head, nice lacing, nose of spiced Orange sweet rolls, with alcohol. Taste citrus, spice, bananna esters, grassy hops with a nice malt/slight acid finish to chew on. Nice carbonation. Well balanced for this style. Not overly spiced like a lot of other saisons Iíve tried. Arguably, the best mistake that boulevard has made

4-pack from Fresh Thyme grocery store. Pours orange with a large puffy head that recedes slightly with plenty of pillows left behind. Heavy nose of soapy, horse blanket yeast. Flavors of sweet Belgian candy, cotton candy, subtle hops, citrus, yeast all around. Very crisp. Full carbonation and light/medium body. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IrishBoy (3799) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 3, 2014
750ml bottle from Costco, Bakersfield. Nose is citrus, caramel, floral, and hints of tart, cloves, and yeast. Hazy urine yellow with a big yellow, long lasting, heavy lacing, tinged head. Flavor is lightly tart, lightly bitter, lightly sweet, with a bunch of fruitiness. Actually exceptionally tasty.

Wischylini (120) - Grimstad, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2014
Pours a hazy light orange, with a creamy white head that leaves a decent lacing. The aromas are hay, bubble gum, citrus fruits, light malts and a clove-heavy blend of spices. The taste is quite sweet, and not very bitter, although it does have a dry finish, and the high abv is barely noticeable. The mouthfeel is slightly slick, and the beer is well carbonated.

Zekada (39) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. The aroma is veryy nice. Itís a mixture of fruits, citrus and flowers with a small hint if hops. It pours a hazy orange with a rich white head and it looks very tasteful. The taste is probably the only thing I could wish more of. It is light, sweet and very drinkable - a really nice summer beer. However it leaves you a bit short taste wise. Palate is wonderful. Sweet and just slightly sour in a nice mix and it lingers in an easy pleasant way. Overall an excellent beer.

Pours an orangey color with a big head. Great lacing on the glass. Aroma and taste are full of hops. Iím not a hop head so it was okay.

Smells sweet, grainy, and citrusy. Very nice smell. Pours golden orangeish color with nice off white head, retains a little with some lacing. Very citrusy taste and very crisp and refreshing. Mouthfeel is good, again crisp. Awesome beer. Poured from a 32 oz growler.

Goodgrief (1762) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUN 26, 2014
On tap at the Rose & Crown in Nantucket. Golden pour with a little head. Sweet, grainy aroma. Light fruity flavor with a mild spicy tang. Not nearly as funky as many of my favorites but quite enjoyable nonetheless.
