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.

12 oz. bottle. Ar: A bit stuffy but some nice citrus notes come through up front. Lightly spicy banana as well. Ap: Pours a hazy straw-copper with a 2" frothy head atop my tulip. Nice lace. T: Fairly sweet up front with a spicy flavor. Finish is moderate citrus and quite nicely bittered with a touch of tartness. P: Comes off a bit syrupy to me, moderate carbonation and a bit of stickiness. O: Glad to find this one stashed away in the back of my fridge. Complex and delicious.

March 2016. Lively carbonation. Belgian yeast is evident. Dry and spicy. Strong notes of grapefruit. Lighter notes of Orange and hay. enjoyed it but the grapefruit notes were too overpowering for me, It has a strong bitterness in the finish, but not a hop bitterness, a grapefruit bitterness. Didn't notice the 8.5% alcohol at all. At 255 cal not worth it. Drink a quad June 2017. Gave it another try. A well respected beer, but I did not really care for it. Very odd and prominent aftertaste. Letting it warm up just made it worse ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz(?) bottle from Discount. Best by Oct 2017. Golden yellow pour, spongey white head. Aroma has big tangy fruits, somewhat yeasty, sweet malty. A bit subtle. Taste is of spicy tangy yeast, some sweet fruit, citrus, light sweet malts. Very spicy tangy. Not as pleasant a blend as hoped. Almost medium bodied, with some alcohol. Finishes tangy fruity spicy. Shrug? Not what hoped. 13.2

Bottle- Pours a hazy, golden yellow color with a foamy beige head. The aroma is yeasty with hints banana, citrus, and clove. The taste is fairly carbonated making for a very full texture feeling. Has a fairly dry finish with some lingering spices.

geolgau (361) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - SEP 12, 2017
Aroma is fresh and full of fruity esters, resembling a belgian ale. Spices like pepper and coriander, yeast, grassy hops, light herbs. Crisp, refreshing for it's ABV, and well made.

AcctError484021 (47) - - SEP 12, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2017 Bière blonde, dorée très claire avec une belle mousse blanche, une belle pétillance, une odeur floral avec un fond d'amertume. Au gout, très douce en entrée de bouche, avec une douceur sur le milieu du palais. Qui amène la carbonation et ensuite amène l'amertume. Bonne bière, un peu trop pétillante mais un peu trop pour moi,
