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.

thellgren (1001) - Helsinki, - JAN 26, 2013
0.75 l bottle from Arkadia Alko, Helsinki (Special Collection). Nice big white head, cloudy yellow colour. Quite mild taste with some fruits especially citrus. Also some grapefruit from the hops. Easy to drink despite the high content of alcohol. Does not go well with spicy food, but some fish sandwiches were fine with this.

basjansen14 (304) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2017
Goud kleurig bier met een witte schuimkraag. Aroma: fris, citrus, Saison gist en wat mout. Smaak: moutig, fris, citroen, gist en alcohol. Redelijk met koolzuur en een een medium mondgevoel, te veel alcohol in de smaak, al helamaal voor deze stijl.

oobawa (1197) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2017
A bit sweet for a Saison, grassy and bright but with a heavy caramel-clove undercurrent that feels too prominent for the style. Banana and grapefruit pop up in the middle, and the finish brings out a dry bready yeastiness, but still comes across too thick and boozy for a great farmhouse ale. Still finished the pint rather quickly, though.

Slightly hazy yellow orange pour with white compact-bubbled head. Smells of strong lively citrus aroma with mild lemon zest, coriander, lime, spice. Taste follows the nose with a more pronounced floral component at cooler temperatures - beautiful. Mild bitterness up front that dissipates. Taste is spice-forward and the hop component does play a bigger role as the beer warms. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

19Oracolo78 (179) - ITALY - MAY 12, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2017 Birra colore giallo/dorato. Schiuma bianca, fine e persistente. Al naso sentori di frutto della passione e mango. Al palato buon corpo con note che riprendono le stesse cose sentite al naso, con aggiunta di crosta di pane e pesca gialla. Nel finale rimane poco amara. Una birra eccezionale, molto beverina, nonostante i suoi 8.5 gradi scende gi come lacqua. Ottima.

Seyffer (4) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 4, 2017 does not count
Draft at harper & rye. Decent Saison. Barnyard, clove, lemon, and earthy spiced. Bit of banana, but too sweet and not farmhousey enough for me.

thepatrickman (1286) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle at home. This is surprisingly more of a traditional saison than I was expecting. The yeast character is uber-trad, with pepper and hay aromas and a ton of carbonation. The Brett kick is subtle but really nice, bringing some earthiness that rounds everything out. Quite good.

Pale straw color which was lighter than expected. A bit of barnyard funk on the nose. Good bitterness with a bit of a bite on the back end.

12-ounce bottle pours slightly cloudy yellow-gold with creamy white head. Lots of visible carbonation. Aroma: banana, yeasty bread, clove, lemon. Flavor: all of the above, plus white pepper. Medium-bodied.
