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.

A refreshing saison. Aroma of mild citrus in a very pleasant pour leads into well-balanced also citrus centers saison which tastes much lighter than the 8+ABV.

Outstanding fruity aroma draws you in to the golden pour w/ a white head that leaves some lacing. The taste isnt quite as good as the smell. Its very clean & refreshing. Actually pretty darn good for the style!

Nice spicy saison with belgian yeast and hop aromas. Spice and yeast dominate the palate with a dry finish. Very Good

Pours hazy gold with a thick coarse head. Aroma of grass, bread, citrus, stone fruit, banana. Taste is bitter hops, sweet malt, black pepper, hint of alcohol. This is a solid saison, fortunately available where I live.

ej (1255) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2013
Light golden and slightly cloudy. Large fluffy white head. Aroma has something that reminds me of a saison, banana esters and some funky fruityness. Taste is mild malty with loads of fruity yeast-funk. Semi-dry finish, medium body and medium-high carbonation.

Bottle. Hazy gold with a tall, dense, foamy white head. Strong tropical fruit and citrus with straw, grains and yeast in the aroma. Taste is tropical fruit, citrus fruit, grassy hops, floral notes, strong yeast, grains, sweet malt and soft alcohol notes. Touch of spiciness as well. Body is medium with a strong, bubbly carbonation and light stickiness. Ends with more abundant fruit notes, soft alcohol, sweet malt, dusty yeast, grass, floral hops and light spicy hops.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2013 This is my favorite saison. Huge grapefruit, tropical, citrus. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Very fresh, but also so noble.

Hazy yellow golden pour with clingy bleached white head. Initial citrus-grapefruit explosion of Amarillo hops gives way to well balanced vanilla caramel malty flavor with just a bit of alcohol bite and warmth. Finishes with a touch of hops bitters, but never overwhelms the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
