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.

On tap at Brouwers. Hazy straw color with a yeasty and coriander aroma. Very interesting interpretation. The alcohol is undetectable. The flavor is dominated by citrus and spices, more specifically the coriander. Carbonated and medium body. Fantastic.

Great Saison. Great example for the style. Very refreshing, great sweet malt flavors and a little funk from the yeast. Super Enjoyable.

Sigmund (5707) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2015
750 ml corked & caged bottle, BB date 07.2013, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. ABV is 8.5%. Slightly hazy golden colour, large white head. Lovely aroma of farmhouse kitchen and dry white wine, also hints of tropical fruits. The flavour is medium sweet, maybe not quite as fresh as it ought to be, but still very good. Fruity / citrussy and mildly spicy notes. Enjoyable, will buy again, and sample when fresher.

3/VI/15 - on tap @ Trollekelder (Gent) - BB: n/a (2015-746)

Clear blond to yellow beer, creamy white head, very stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: lots of citrus, grapefruit, fruity, bit sweet, some caramel, nice stuff! MF: soft carbon, medium body, smooth texture. Taste: lots of citrus first, spicy touch, bit herbal, grassy bitterness. Aftertaste: some sweet malts, pretty bitter, citrus, grassy, sweet peaches, bit yeasty, sugary touch, nice bitter hoppy ending.

thmsboyd (100) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle BBE: 12.2015. Lightly chilled. Pours a clear golden amber body with a mountainous, frothy off-white head. Peppery aroma of Belgian yeast, wheat, banana, lemon and coriander. A medium ripe fruit sweetness with a hint of tartness and medium bitterness to finish. Medium-light bodied with a scratchy texture, medium-high carbonation and a long, lingering finish. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable saison with an accent on spice, primarily white pepper.

Tap. Cereal, tropical fruit, lemon, some banana. Taste is pepper, grains, hops, fruity esters, alcohol. Ok farmhouse ale, a bit too much US hops...

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.
