COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Most breweries have at least one piece of equipment thats just a bit persnickity. Here at Boulevard its 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.

4 Dec 2012, bottle. bright yellow, faintly hazy, steady bubbles, thin frothy head. nose is nice yeast, some banana, some lemon rind, moderate alcohol. very enticing. med/thin body and moderately fizzy. straw malt and sweet alcohol up front with a noticeable but not prominent lemon hops middle and tangy yeast finish. pretty decent. probably big for a normal farmhouse ale though.

Pours hazy golden with white fluffy head.Aroma of fruits and some yeast. Taste is fresh and a bit hoppy. Ive a bit tired of belgian style beers, but this changed my mind because its beautiful!

Bottled. Hazy golden, thick frothy white head. Fruity, tropical fruits at first, some sweet wild berries also in aroma. Grapefruit bitterness with a sweet finish. Some earthy tones as well. Spices, peppery ones to be more precise in aftertaste.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - NOV 30, 2012
A clean farmhouse ale.. With a translucent color... No murky yeast here.. Friendly too... No funky, weird aromas or flavors.. Simply straightforward citrus dominated aromas and flavors, with layers of tropical fruit, candied herbs, hay and (friendly) bitter, perfumed florals... Enjoyable... with little to complain about.. Except I know it is commercially made.. So... I can't be as excited about it as artisanal brewer... Although I do appreciate how clean and focused this beer is.. Well made for the size of the brewery... And the price is fair.. Cheers! --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

bad ass - huge grass, lemon, hay and floral hoppy/yeasty aromas. Taste is dry with a touch of bitterness and residual sweetness at the end; a solid beer.

Not a fan. Smells a little like celery. Tastes ok until the band-aid aftertaste kicks in. Ew, grody.

.75 bottle. Yellow hazy. Nose is loaded with hay, wheat, brett funk, citrus orange peel. Feels really authentic and flavourful. Body is medium, intensive and long. Soft, wheaty, flavorful. Just nicely sour, very drinkable. Super easy to drink with the right flavours. A bit too easy, it seems.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2012 Poured from a bottle, hazy, yellow, with good white head and carbonation. Aroma of grapefruit, hops, slight hints of bananas. Little fruity and hoppy with the taste, but it has a twang to it that was unexpected at the end. It is a tart aspect, but does not set right with me. Not a good aftertaste for the palate. Actually tried it again a few weeks later, and still not a fan. Too light-bodied and dont like the aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LoFi (1711) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle. Pale golden with yeast particles, thick white head. Aroma: yeasty, lemon, orange, clementine, light spices. Taste: fruity, spices, pears and light banana, sweet citrus fruits, grainy maltiness. Towards the end, the finish becomes quite dry and light tart. Medium bodied, moussy. Fresh, fruity and very drinkable.

Ive been drinking this beer religously for years now one of my favorite saisons and the base beer the the best saison Ive ever had. Color seems right on straw yellow with frothy white billowing head. Smell is of big grapefruit and raw earth. Taste is the best part- nice banana phenols fruity fruit effervecents, slight resinous hops followed by a long dry bright finish. Carbonation scrubs the tong and leaves me wanting more.
