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.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2009
Had this on tap over at the MAlt House: Poured a super hazey golden colour with a fluffhead that kept on fluffing. Some grapefruit, orange peel and spices on the nose. Taste was creamy, lots of carbonation making it spritzy and alive. And some well integrated spice notes.

humulushound (244) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2009
On tap at Malt and Vine. Opaque golden straw-orange color with minimal white head. Aroma of apples and fleshy fruits, light barnyard funk and mild pepper. Hay, pepper, bread and subacid fruit flavor with a medium body and velvety mouthfeel, Very good overall.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 5, 2009
GTMW 2009. Poured a clear gold color with a creamy white head. Pleasant aroma of apricot danish, orange, and baking spices. Light to medium bodied and delicately sweet. I tasted clove, pale malt, and nonspecific fruit. Nice.

wetherel (1905) - Cupertino, California, USA - SEP 1, 2009
On tap at Trinity in Colorado Springs. Kind of like a hoppy belgian IPA. Light yellow color. Foamy head, Saison aroma. Fruity, lightly sweet. Nice.

2.5
kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Banana colored pour that settles to a strong golden with a 1 inch white head. Aroma of weak hops and not much else. Tastes like strong, sweet malt, with a good hop balance. No hint of alcohol. Lively palate with a little fizz to finish. A little bland flavor on the finish too.

3.6
3fourths (9381) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2009 Draft, Falling Rock. Unfiltered, cloudy soft yellow, white head, fine-bubbled, attractive structure. First impressions of the nose: key lime pie, pillowy yeast, floral sugars. Delicately textured, soft but full on the palate with a slight turns towards syrupy texture in the finish. Intricate, fresh, delicious. Lovely overall.

3.7
Ratman197 (15766) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2009
On tap at Falling Rock poured a hazy gold with a lasting off white head. Aromas of orange, pine, straw, pink grapefruit and light spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, earthiness, light citrus and a hint of spice with a crisp dry finish.

iowaherkeye (2804) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - AUG 21, 2009
On tap @ the Crescent Moon. Clear yellow golden with a 1 1/2 finger white head, good retention. Big citrus rind and herbal hop nose with peppery notes, hay, pear and apples, some alcohol, and Belgian yeast behind. Flavor continues to have plenty of hops with everything else following suit. Bitterness peaked @ a 4 in the semi-dry finish, alcohol masked pretty well. Light prickly carbonation with a medium body. Very good beer--had a ccouple samples at the Great Taste as well.

3.9
bleeng (1705) - Houston not near Beersel., Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2009
Draft at The J Clyde Birmingham. Pale yellow, hazy, white head. Nose is very spicy and funky-promising. Taste starts off alcoholic but then the farmhouse/funk takes over. Slightly sweet with a nice lucious thick body. Well done and a tip of the hat to the traditional Belgian farmhouse brewers.
