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.

Jabic (588) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 18, 2017
Ar: Peach, lemon pith, and pineapple; white pepper and clove; a touch of rosy alcohol. Ap: Golden and slightly hazy; large white head with very good retention, leaving a folding, airy cap of delicate suds and curtains of bubbles along the glass sides. T: Black pepper, clove, and banana up front; juicy, overripe peach and some clean alcohol warmth; slightest touch of sweetness, with a honey and floral flavor; bitterness is medium and lean, peppery in character; some notes of pine and citrusy hops; hay and flowers with a clean pils malt sweetness. P: Medium-light body with high carbonation; finish is dry. O: A fine saison; all the hallmark saison flavors (citrus, tropical fruit, spice, hay, and clean malt) with a nice hop accent and a touch of alcohol warmth for complexity.

Exxpensive in the supermarket. Taste is very good. Heavy beer, not fast drinking. Fresh flowery hops and little sweetness is tasted, nicely in balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Une bière orangée, blonde dorée, avec une fine ligne de carbonatation et une effervescence moyenne. Au nez, la levure de saison belge se manifeste franchement, avec beaucoup de citron, ce qui donne une grosse impression de fraîcheur au nez. Au goût, j’ai un attaque de citron au départ, avec une levure assez agressive merci! La bière n’est pas trop effervescente, et ne cache pas une petite dose d’amertume ce qui en fait une bière avec un taux de buvabilité plus bas que ce que j’aurais pu imaginer. Avec le temps, des notes poivrés s’installent, mais la saveur reste assez similaire à travers la dégustation.

.355l bottle poured a hazy golden beer with medium soapy white head (didn’t last long) fresh citrus aroma, can smell barley malt aswell. Taste: barley and wheat malt, saison yeast higher alcohol taste than you would expect. Mouth feel is rather thick and sticky. Also strong carbonation, which is negative for me. Overall good beer, would drink again.

12oz bottle. Hazy yellow-orange, full, long lasting fluffy white head. Yeasty, funky, spicy nose. Light citrus flavors meshed with hay, toast, earth, grass. A little warm on the finish.
