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.

SamTheBarrel (458) - Vallentuna, - SEP 18, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2014 355 ml bottle, pours opaque yellow with ha large beige foamy head. Aroma of banana, orange and lemon peels. Taste is similar to the aroma, but also with a hint of spices and herbs. Well carbonated, medium body and somewhat bitter. Not a hint of alcohol even though this beer is 8.5% ABV. A very pleasant saison.

Bright gold with steady bubbles feeding a nice ring and island of foam, with lots of interesting lacing along the sides after sipping. The aroma is quite complex and is a good indication of the flavors that come out. Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Overall a very drinkable and interesting exploration of what a Saison can be.

veronneaupy (140) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2014
Au nez, on a l’impression de sentir une hopfenweiss se avec ses côtés frais de bananes et girofle. En bouche, on goûte toujours la banane, mais pas le girofle. C’est très frais, léger et subtilement acide. De très belles petites bulles accompagnent chacune de nos gorgée. La finale est un peu amère et minérale. Très bonne saison hors-norme selon moi.

Aroma of an Double IPA, with a hint of saison. Similar taste. Very good beer.

oOJUXEOo (291) - Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. Pour is bright yellow orange. Big fluffy white head. Aroma is dank and barnyard yeast. Taste is surprisingly light and flavorful. Taste of malt and slightly spicy. Excellent beer well done.

Barnoloid (204) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Lemony funky nose gives away some of what is to come next. A big earthy farmhouse ale that looks and tastes excellent. Lots of carbonation and an unfiltered view from the glass. There is a punchy brightness that makes this a perfect beer to accompany a meal, should you be so inclined. Hops hold up well amongst the bready elements.

fiulijn (14777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2014
Corked bottle from Haggen Grocery, Woodinville, WA; batch 714136-2, bb 02-2015
Hazy dark blond color with generous compact head. Nice spicy aroma, deep. Highly carbonated, off-dry, with good body strength, and smooth mouthfeel; soft malt flavor, with strong spicy yeast, and delicate fruity touch; correct bitterness; bitter orange peel; the alcohol warms the final, there is also a mild astringency.
Clean and well designed, excellent beer.
