Notes/Commercial Description:
Most breweries have at least one piece of equipment that’s just a bit persnickity. Here at Boulevard we have fermenter number seven, the black sheep of our cellar family. Ironically, when our brewers were experimenting with 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 big surge of fruity aromatics and grapefruit-hoppy notes, the flavor of this complex, straw-colored ale tapers off to a peppery, dry finish.

38 IBU

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pours a dark, golden color with a huge foamy head. Head quickly dissipates but leaves a light blanket of foam behind.

Scent is very fruity and slightly hoppy. Notes of grapefruit, lemon zest and spices, particularly pepper and coriander. Smells a lot like some witbiers I have tried.

Taste was wonderful. Full of sweet fruit flavors - peaches, orange, raisins, even a little bit of banana in the finish. Spice was present but not overwhelming. Again, pepper, coriander, but also cinnamon and vanilla. No alcohol taste at all, despite the 8% ABV.

Mouthfeel was pleasant. Goes down smoothly. Lightly carbonated.

Overall, a really solid beer. This was my first saison/farmhouse ale, and i found it to be quite enjoyable. I typically go for hoppy beers, but this was a nice change of pace. Will definitely try again...right now.
