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.

Pours a straw-yellow with a white head. Aroma is yeast, bread, floral, faint spice and/or funk. I was really looking for a little more funk but didn't find it. Taste is sweet, yeast, banana, bread and floral. Finishes mostly dry and lingers a bit. It also had slightly more carbonation than I expected. Overall, it's a tasty brew and certainly one to try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at ACBE. Wow this one is probably my favorite of the event. Nice bouquet of floral/apricot/peach hoppy flavors with some funky spiciness, lively carbonation, dry clean finish. Top-notch stuff, quite complex and enjoyable.

Bottle. Gold with rocky white head. Yeasty aroma with a little banana and some citrus hops. Light body with spicy pepperiness and a bit of funk. Lots of orangey hops and a nice dry finish. Best beer I’ve bought in Croydon for a long time.

Mooi om deze bij de Mitra aan te treffen! Troebele goudgele saison met mooie witte kraag. Heerlijke fruitige, romige saison. Lekker bittertje in de afdronk.

Bottle from Coppers Newcastle. Pours a hazy amber-gold with a foamy white head. Lovely fresh, yeasty and herby aroma, spicy and sharp on the tongue, with grapefruit poking our from behind the herbs and yeast. One of the best saisons I’ve had, refreshing and tasty.

RW80 (1225) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2015
355ml bottle Appearance: Deep gold with a big white head that lasts long, leaving a decent amount of lacing. Aroma: apricot,citrus hops, peach, floral notes, pale malt, light funky Saison yeast Taste: light to moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Some fruity tones, some good hops a light funkyness and some spicey yeast tones in the bitter hoppy finish. Medium body,average carbonation. Good Saison and I like Moorgat comming with this, instead of another IPA.

TET (2054) - FINLAND - JUN 26, 2015
A hazy, yellow beer with a big, clouding and blond head. Aroma has flowers, fruitness of apples and perries, lemon, spices and sourness. Great. Taste is fruitfull, sourness, hint of peppery alcohol. A long lasting, hoppy and spicy end. Medium bodied, strong carbonation, maybe the body with a quite strong alcohol-% turn this to slightly too heavy. Complex and aromatic saison.

furthur (400) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle, cloudy light amber, big head fades. I can smell the hops in this, piney citrus, but also some cloves malt and kombucha. Flavor is big and malty, with hops. Is this a DIPA?! Finish is dry and spicy, palate fairly rich, carbonation bright. This is pretty good! Is it a saison?

Strong aroma with piney hops, yeast and a touch of banana. Flavours of yeast and a slight spiciness blend well with the dryness of the hop.

Robe blonde, belle mousse persistante. Nez tout en élégance sur des notes de citron vert, de gingembre confit, de houblon frais, de fruit. Bouche à l’attaque ronde, une très belle fraîcheur, du fruit, de l’acidité et une finale élégante sur les agrumes confits. Une très belle saison raffraîchissante où l’on ne sent pas les 8,5 % d’alcool ....

hawthorne00 (2768) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2015
Bottle. Deep gold with a lovely and large near white head that never disappears. High bead. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus flowers, apricots, dough, white pepper. Sweet and quite heavy with dough, hay, apricots, grapefruit, candied lemon peel, spices, very modest funk. Maybe a little soap. Fairly high bitterness, finish is well off dry. Fine beer; just a little strong for me for this sort of thing.
