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.

I didn't get a chance to try this while it was only available on tap. I was pretty excited to see it become available in bottles.

Pours golden yellow with a fluffy, soapy, large white head. Looks crisp and refreshing. The lacing is surprisingly super sticky.

Pine, citrus, and grapefruit hops in the aroma. Belgian yeastiness, grassy and floral. Maybe a tad funky and spicy.

Sweet biscuity malts make more of an appearance in the taste. Yeasty and citrusy, with some spiciness.

The mouthfeel is soapy and slick but still sparkling and crisp. Somewhat sticky finish that lingers for a while. I might have liked it to clear out sooner.

Very refreshing and complex. Enjoyable to drink.

If they didn't have as many other great beers (and if they were a Belgian brewery), I think they could get away with something like what Fantôme does making only saisons/farmhouse ales. I think this beer is better than their original Saison, so I'm not really going to miss it too much, but I also don't see what's wrong with having three saisons if there all very good.
