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.

Nice Saison. Spicy and sweet. Great yeast profile, solid alcohol warmth. Hazy gold with lasting pillowy head.

A light fruity smell of sweet vanilla. The large white foamy head has a normal duration. The body is pale yellow. A light sour taste, quite bitter with some hops. The body is light, very lively with a lot of carbonation.

Heavy carbonation but great foamy head, gold body. Strong aroma of cereal and hay, barn funk kinda thing but not layered just out there, some banana and coriander too. Flavour is soft cloying peach with heavy alcohol, syrupy even. Big strong beer but comes off as a little overbearing. Will still drink tho.

Very good example of a Farmhouse/Saison Ale. I often seek out this beer when looking for beer to buy. Highly recommended.

Sample from draft at Johnny's in Castricum (with Jan and Wilma). Light yelow color, white head, a very nice taste. I didn't expect this high abv in this beer.

4.2
balloonbuffoon (608) - - OCT 13, 2017
12floz bottle, BBD: 04.28.2018, $2.50 single, large snifter glass. A huge head forms on the pour reaching the rim of the glass. Then settles rather quickly to one-finger of frothiness atop a rich golden body. Yeast is the main driver, providing an aroma of floral plastic. Body is medium-full with a balanced presence of rose honey, basic cereal grains, and muted herb spice flavors. This is something I can find readily, yet often overlook for something new or different. Yet, it is very good Belgian style beer.

Franckg (1860) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2017
Bouteille avec une date du 21/09/2017. Venant de la SAQ, j'en déduit un produit passé date. Robe dorée légèrement trouble avec un épais col de mousse blanc et onctueux. Arômes de de pelures d'orange, muscade, levures grillées, citron en poudre. En bouche, orange, muscade et ananas, levures, matières grillées, sucre résiduel, épices. Texture huileuse et corps mince à moyen.

3.5
teddybeer (4123) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 29, 2017
Golden color, white head and some retention. Aroma is light yeasty with notes of floral hops. Flavor is yeasty, some citrusy, light bittery. Dry and flowery final.
