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.

Good saison that’s different from the dry saisons. A lot of pepper and funk in the taste. Good stuff from Boulevard.

Gulbrun farge med masse hvitt skum som blir ligende hele veien ned.. Lukter godt humle, malt og tydelig grapefrukt. kjenner også malt og sitrus i aromaen. Håper smaken ligner på aromaen.... Synes det smaker veldig anerledes.. Smaker fruktig med noe pepperinnslag. Bitter i ettersmak som sitter i lenge.
