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.

langeveld12 (401) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2016
Fruity, crisp and fresh. Some acidity, some sweetness and enough bitterness, all in balance. More complex then I expected from a farmhouse ale. Good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sehr gutes Saison. Fruchtig, hefig, belgisch.. In der Nase Alkohol, Banane, Karamell. Im Geschmack sehr süß, leichte Säure. Auch hier eine recht starke Alkoholnote zu spüren. Wärmend. Insgesamt ein sehr leckeres Bier.

PlutonowyMan (363) - POLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Kolor herbaciany, miedziany, klarowny. Piana pot??na, g?sta, drobno p?cherzykowa, bardzo trwa?a, pozostawia na szkle zdobienia. Aromat: troch? wsi, mnóstwo cytrusów, ?ywicy, nuty kwiatowe, ?wie?o i rze?ko. Smak: piwo jest lekko kwa?ne i jednocze?nie nieco s?odkie, do?? tre?ciwe, owoce cytrusowe, lekka ?ywica i bardzo delikatne akcenty wiejskie. Goryczka nieska, owocowa. Wysycenie wysokie, alkohol idealnie schowany.
