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.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 One of my favorite saisons! The wife and I have both voted and the consensus was unanimous that this is the perfect beer with a fancy $10 burger. I get hops, citrus and funk which is my trifecta of perfection in a farmhouse style saison.

Bottle. Hazy, pale golden with a good white head. Spicy fruit nose, hints of coriander. Lemony flavours, a bit acidic, also quite bitter. Dry finish. Interesting.

Ideal Saison. Not too funky, but certainly has that farmhouse flavor and aroma to it that makes this unique yet enjoyable. Smooth, flavorful, not too sweet. Good to drink with just about anything.

Bottle: Muddled sunshine yellow body with amber tints & a huge, foamy white head that piles up nice & high. Aroma is a Belgian yeast bomb... Bubblegum, white pepper spice, wet cotton, spicy fruit esters, mushy banana, & a little bit of pear skin. Clumpy, almost bread-like yeast & malty notes in the back-end. Taste is similar, with sharp yeast esters up front, banana & pear mostly with a slight earthiness. Light peppery spice, sweet bubblegum notes, some dry straw & hay hitting with a tiny bit of cotton funk. Spicy Belgian yeast, all day. Chunky, chewy body, very nice... A pretty good farmhouse ale. Im not always a fan of the yeast bombs but this was never too spicy or too heavy.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 Light lemony aroma balanced with cereal maltiness. Huge white head. Faint banana flavor with lemon, pepper and breadiness up front. One of the best balanced beers Ive tasted. My current favorite for this style.

On draft in a tulip. Pours a cloudy amber. Smells of Belgian yeast and toasty, biscuity malt. Excellent mouthfeel. Toffee and toasty malt with great Belgian flavors. Great saison.

BrettTaylor (753) - Radford, Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Pours a cloudy gold with soft white head (on tap). Head dissipates fairly quickly, but doesnt go completely away. Aroma of hops, spice, and wheat. Taste - citrus, resin hop immediately then followed by spiciness of yeast on finish. Really nice.

Lukaduke (3123) - Gray, Maine, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Pours a nice orangey golden color with a pillowy thick white foam that rocks hard ! The nose is full of fieldgrass, hay some mellow lemongrass, citrus and light peppery spice. The palate follows with a light refreshing body but a ton of flavor. Great dusty hay, grass, floral honey, dandelion and a brightness of fruit well integrated into the beer. Beautiful rustic finish, dry peppery and a nice hint of bitterness ! Great Beer !

Flaske 0,75l fra Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Drukket p lseminar i Trnrommet 13 Nov 13. Lys gylden. Skyet. Hyt kremaktig skum. Mye lacing. Myk munnflelse. Smaken er blomster. Litt syrlig. Bra - men p grensen til kjedelig.
