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.

Enjoyed on tap at Lyfe Kitchen in Chicago, IL prior to seeing Kids in the Hall. Appearance is cloudy gold with a thin white head. Aroma of light spice, Belgian ale yeast, light clove, smell is nice. Taste is rather good, somewhere between a Hefeweizen and a Belgian ale, with clove notes and a light fruity characteristic. I can see why this is a popular brew.

Bottle in Virginia Beach. The pour is a cloudy yellow with a big, chunky head. The aromas are citrus and the many flavors include bready malt, yeast, fruit and spice. Very tasty and refreshing. Finishes crisp and dry.

It pours with a heavy head that is rather pillowy. It has a heavy yeast aroma with cheese and basement aromas. It is golden in color with some lacing. There is a pleasant combination of spices with some sweet, fruit flavors. It has a dry finish.

Bottle shared by Rob at the Pig in Boca. Thanks! Small snifter pour was yellow-gold with a nice fluffy one finger head. Aroma was biscuit, barnyard, wet straw, funk, fruit (apricot or lychee). Taste was awesome with funky wild yeasts, hay/straw, slight fruity esters, horse blanket. Light, clean, carbonated, funky finish. Damn good and look forward to another one of these.

On tap at Patrick's. Beautiful clear orange-golden color. This would be perfect for fall. Spicy nose. A creamy feel. The spice flavor dominates, but is not overpowering. Really good as a specialty beer, but not for my regular rotation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A little sweet initially, followed by a slight bitterness, and then a wash of a fuller fruity sweetness. Very little after taste. Slight, fruit fragrance. Nice, medium carbonation. Like a sweet champagne. Nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2014 Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a nice 1 finger white head. Smells of citrus and caramel with a bit of a fruity note. Taste has a sweet citrus front and finishes with spicy yeast with a bit of bitterness.

Duchammer (186) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle: Poured a golden yellow with a white lingering head. Aroma was a nice mixture between the hops and the phenols. This beer started out sweet taste and the biterness from the hops complimented the peppery notes of the saison. Nice saison!
