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.

This beer has great aroma of citrus, piney hops, yeast funk---love it! Anything with these attributes shows a great craft towards old-world style. And the best part, it is available year round at reasonable 4pk prices instead of uneconomical "bombers".

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

A - Crisp honey color with a good sized, foamy, bubbly, light, soapy white head. Very good retention leaving a sticky lace.

S - Sweet and tart aroma. Grapefruit and other citrus (lemon). Some bready malt as well. Hints of spice. Very enticing aroma.

T - Like the nose there is a strong bready malt underlying a good citrus fruit (more lemon and less grapefruit than the aroma). A touch of tropical fruitiness at the very end. Citrus comes out mid and late sip. Spice comes out toward the finish with some clove and pepper being strongest. Belgian yeast is also present with a slight candi sugar sweetness.

M - Light body with plenty of carbonation. Crisp, spritzy feel.

D - Refreshing beer that is easy to drink. I enjoyed the balance of bready malt and citrus tartness along with the subtle Belgian sweetness and spiciness. Alcohol very well hidden.

Notes: I definitely enjoyed this as a well balanced saison. Interesting on the tongue with all the flavors. Fruity, tart, sweet, and spice all present. Dangerously drinkable. Definitely worth picking up.
