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.

Pour is a slightly hazy straw golden-yellow with a fluffy white head. Nice estery funky nose, grassy and peppery, some nice citrus, and quite floral. Taste is nice and refreshing, lemony and peppery, great barnyard funk, orange, other citrus fruits, and a nice dry finish. A great summer beer, very refreshing, very smooth and great for a hot day.

CurbDog (17) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2015
Huge persistent rocky white. Great lacing. Slightly hazy straw colour. Big tropical, citrus, almost seems like there is a Bretty character. Big juicy flavour. Med-light body. Crisp and dry finish. Very enjoyable.

lesifflebiere (1472) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2015
Opaque, couleur jus de poires, avec une carbonatation costaude, et un nez de pêches, d’abricots, de gomme balloune, de bananes, de mangues et de gingembre. La bouche est piquante, passablement poivrée, sèche mais pourtant ronde, avec une chaleur d’alcool qui retentit à l’arrière. Se rapprochant plus d’une saison impériale, son alcool non nécessaire la sabote un peu, mais sinon, quelle merveilleuse bière, absolument irréprochable sur tous les autres plans.

Garrold (2598) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle. Hazy orange. Big, bubbly head tightens up to a thin, sticky film. Nice, sweet grainy bread on the nose. Banana toffee and fruity hop. Taste is soft sweet, turning zesty, chewy bitter. Full body. Soft carbonation. Finishes long, zesty bitter. Spicy, dry close. Nice hopped up saison.

sudomorph (908) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow with a two finger, white head and fine sediments. Aroma has big notes of bubble gum, citrus, candy sugar, and tropical fruits. Taste is balanced. Non sweet candy sugar, citrus, bubble gum, tropical fruits, slight pine and resin, and a drawn out, mildly bitter ending. Medium body with a medium-high carbonation. Slightly syrupy/resiny mouth feel with a dry finish. Overall a nice saison. Classic flavours with some American hop notes to mix it up.

Deceptive. Doesn’t taste like an 8.5% beer. On tap at the Purecraft Bar. Birmingham. UK!

theOptimator (327) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Aroma is complex malty Saison, big bubblegum. Appearance is yellow orange hazy with decent frothy off white head, looks like a Saison. Taste is sweet malt bubblegum forward, followed by a surprisingly pronounced hop bitterness, some peach, citrus and peppery hop aroma. I think there is some extra complexities here, but the hop bitterness is blinding them. Palate is medium, hint of alcohol.... bubblegum malt lingers. Overall a pretty nice beer, but too much hop bitterness. Bitterness is blinding flavors that I think would otherwise be huge and unique. Still a fun beer and we got it at an excellent price. Worth a try.
