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.

UncleKorm (1246) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Bottle poured a hazy light yellow w/ an enormous white head. Big aromas of citrus - grapefruit and lemon, peppery yeast, grassy floral hops. Initial flavor is light sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are similar to the nose. Light to medium bodied, lively carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, and a crisp dry finish.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy gold color with a white head that settles to a film with nice lacing. Aroma is mostly sour with some yeast. Taste is mostly clean with some fruitiness and a touch of sour. Slight sour finish. Excellent! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From tasting notes. Bottle. Pours a clear light orange with a small white head. Sweet aroma of caramel, yeast and light citrus. Sweet malty flavor with citrus and mild fruits. A little too sweet for my taste.

rayOfBeer (674) - El Cerrito, California, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle: hazy golden pour with a large, creamy ecru head. Aroma is wheat, caramel, pepper, dried fruit, and a bit of funk. Flavor is sweet with caramel, honey, dried fruits (orange, pineapple, papaya), wheat, pepper, and bitter grass and yeast funk. Well put together with some great flavors. I will be getting more of these.

kramer (5953) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a large fizzy white head that left a bit of sticky lace. The nose is crazy hoppy for a Saison, but I must say, I do like the hell out of it. Nice citrusy grapefruity hops grab the attention right away, Some nice pale malt and light yeastiness as well. The flavor is pretty hop forward, but they work really well with the yeastiness and the pale malt. Maybe not a typical Saison, but at least they messed with hops and not a bunch of spices. Nice lingering tropical fruit like note on the finish with minimal bitterness. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering hoppy finish. Really nice beer.

beerme31 (666) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Pours hazy golden, full off-white head. Nice aroma with citrus fruit and yeasty earthy aromas. Medium sweet taste, a little tart. Medium-light body, above average carbonation, dry and spice finish. Not usually a big saison guy as they are so hit or miss for me, but this one is solid.

floydslip (355) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Cloudy gold beer with a large creamy white head of foam that looks like bubble bath suds. Nose of slightly sour yeast with lemon, grains of paradise, and new mown grass. Wow, the flavor is both strong and subtle, if that even makes sense. It has pronounced citrus notes, not quite grapefruit, but certainly more lively than orange (pomelo?), which is then fortified with a dose of spice. Yet, despite all the flavors, it is not overwhelming and incredibly easy to sip. All backed by a bracing carbonation, this is a solid beer and one that you could drink all night and into the next.

abemorsten (3591) - Mostery, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2013
Sample from bottle at the Cask Norway stand at Nrb, lfestivalen 2013. Muddy yellow golden body with a white film leaving good lacing on the glass. Spicy, citrussy nose. Sweet, spicy, light acidic and light bitter flavors. Medium bodied and smooth. An overall refreshing feeling and pleasant experience.
