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.

4.03/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Found a single bottle of this to finally try. My first beer by Boulevard Brewing Co. Poured into a teku glass from a 12oz bottle. Freshness date is listed as "10/12/13."

Pours a golden orange color complete with tons of carbonation, to the point where half of the glass was nothing but head before I had even poured half of the bottle out. Soapy and bubbly in appearance, and sticks all around the glass in thickened streaks. The head settles down eventually, although pouring in the extra residue at the bottom makes it last a bit longer. Slightly cloudy, although I'm saving the final dregs for later. No need to risk anything here. Very appealing in color, although definitely looks more like a Belgian-style golden ale than anything else. Lines of bubbles rise all alongside the glass. Not rating to style here, only how this is - which, in my view, looks great.

Nothing really resemblant of what I'd consider a "saison" to smell like, but it does retain many qualities of Belgian golden ale greats. Lots of fruitiness, complete with tangerines, mangos, passion fruit, oranges, apples, pears, and white grapes. A sharpness pervades the flavors, consisting of a bite-y, hoppy profile, as well as a sharp boozy sensation that is well hidden overall, but still present enough to add sweetness to the whole thing. Honey pervades, almost to the point where this would smell like a dessert wine if not for the hoppiness. Not too funky by any means, nor tarty... Again, pretty much not exactly a saison in the traditional sense, but not bad at all.

The flavor contains a lot of the aforementioned fruitiness, as well as alcohol and hop flavors, although there definitely are some key differences. There's a slightly more straightforward dry grainy sensation at the beginning, but the yeasty profile and syrupy, slightly sweetened malts dominate. Passion fruit, bananas, mangoes, oranges, and white grapes (kind of like muscat varietals) really open up, but then are cut off by a sharpened, slightly grassy bitterness, grains, and an astringency that is mild but provides an extra kick to the whole thing. The dryness melds into a grapefruit flavor, in fact, which is slightly tarty and finishes off the initial sweetness well. The extra dregs reduce the sweetness and and increase dryness. The profile is definitely juicy, but the finish is a little drier than expected, and while it lacks too much of a tarty flavor I enjoy in my saisons, the the bittered flavor works well and prevents this from being a sweetened, boozy mess. Alcohol is really well hidden, especially at 8.5%. Pretty chewy, which came as a surprise. Not hard at all to drink, as any saison-styled beer should be!

Not a bad take on the style, even if it's totally a hybrid in the same way that, say, Saison Rue is. However, unlike that one, this is far more drinkable. The fruitiness is really refreshing here, as well as the grassy hops and crisp grains. Everything works out well, except for my lack of maintaining sobriety in the long run, due to that devilishly hidden ABV. I'll be seeking out more beers from these guys in the future.

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

Chill hazed golden colored beer with a tall white colored head.

Smells of Belgian Candi sugar and yeast with a medium strong coriander scent. Mild floral scent. Faint menthol and mint aromas.

Starts out dry and spicy with a big coriander flavor. Good floral flavor this is quite dry despite the smell. This gets drier as you drink it. Faint ginger, mint and menthol flavors.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall not a bad Saison at all.

Pours big yeasty white 2 finger head. cloudy color and smells of citrus fruit, yeast, hoppiness. Taste is nicely balanced both sweet and tart with notes of apple and pineapple. My first from Boulevard but I will most definitely be trying to get more of their beers.
Overall: very tasty and balanced saison

A-Pale orange color. Effervescent bubble flow towards the top. A towering, 3 finger white head that retains very well.

S-Oranges, peppery spice, aged cheese, wheat bread.

T-Aged cheese takes over at the front as it fades nicely to a peppered boozy finish with a lingering semi-sweet bready malt taste. Quite nice.

MF-Carbonated and fizzy on the palate, but finishes smooth and a bit chewy

O-An exceptional brew. My favorite saison so far.

A - Bright yellow, cloudy, thick white head has good retention and lacing.

S/T/M - Light tropical fruit hops on the nose, with an earthy yeast body. Yeast funk is there, but not too strong. Hay, grass, and some herbalness add complexity and balance. The myriad of subtle flavors blends well with the light body and high carbonation. Voluminous creaminess to the feel, finishes bone dry.

O - Very enjoyable melding of a diverse range and number of flavors. Paired with the light feel, this is one impressive saison.

my brain is confused . . . this is, by far, the lightest colored beer i've had in a long, long time. light golden yellow wheat color, looks like a bmc lite. head builds fast, but, then, surprise, it hangs around a while, and there's some nice lacing going on as it dies down to a thin layer that hangs around. nose is super clean, soft citrus, hint of lemon and grass. flavor is quite clean, light, almost airy compared to my usual fare. can't pair it with my go-to snacks, they kill the drink. 8.5 abv is as if it isn't there.

very impressed that someone made something so light, yet so good. nice job!

Pours a cloudy yellow with a thick foamy head.

The smell is musty and earthy with some fruity aromatics and breadiness poking through.

The taste follows the smell but with more lemon zest. Absolutely delicious - the perfect amount of breadiness and must as well.

This beer is extremely effervescent - as it should be.

A great American rendition of a Saison. Scarily drinkable for 8.5% ABV.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Belgian ale glass. Nice golden color, solid rocky head that diminishes slowly with nice lacing. Nice sediment haze.

Aroma of fruity eaters banana, citrus, with a nice sweet malt. slightly floral hint with coriander as well. Inviting aroma.

Taste is citrus with coriander and nice biscuit malts. Nice overall spice. Milder guitar esters like banana but not as strong as the aroma would suggest. Good balanced taste.

Carbonation is champagne like with a light body and a smooth finish.

A nice take on a farmhouse saison like ale but with enough good tweaks to make this a great ale. Highly recommmended.

Appearance: Hazy opague sunrise. Huge white head. 4 inches and it just sat there for minutes on end.
Smell: Heavy coriander. Grass and hay notes, farm smell.
Taste: A little sweet. Quite complex. Coriander and grass. Has a fresh aftertaste and feel, almost like it cleaned your mouth.
Mouthfeel: Cleansing and fresh. High carbonation.
Overall: Delicious. This would be great on a cold crisp morning if we didn't have jobs to go to.

4.28/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

S: Abundant mintyfreshness and grapefruit/mango hops that have a bit of a wild, earthy edge that comes from coriander. Moderate lemon pepper (like the muffin). Light rustic bread, actual yeastiness. Hops > yeast character, but decently balanced and complex.

T: Crisp, slight green apple tartness and decent carbonation set this up to be a highly quaffable brew. Straw and medium intensity complex pepper spiciness hit at first, very pleasantly. In the middle there is more complex pepper, grass, apricot, grapfruit, and light lemon verbena. Rather than an upper (lively fruit), this is more of a downer (earthy) saison. Neither sweet nor bitter, just a touch dry, with nothing really catching your attention since its so smoothly melded. Medium-low mouthfeel adds to the aforementioned crispness and drinkability. Finish is perfectly dry, with notes of primarily of coriander as well as lemon/grapefruit (somewhat pithy), apricot, herbs.

Notes: Nice balanced saison. Hop forward, so it'd be a good entré for hop heads to the style. More earthy (and somewhat spicy) and less juicy/lively/zesty than some of the classics out there, but perhaps more like the original old-world style. Very nice and very, very drinkable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours a lightly hazy golden yellow color with some small bubbles rising slowly to the head. The head is white huge and fluffy that falls slow to floating half cap that leaves gobs of lace. Really nice looking brew.

Aroma is nice grainy malts fruits lime, lemon lots of grass notes honey notes mingled in the malt. Good amount of cloves maybe some nutmeg. Crisp refreshing brew at least from the aroma.

Taste is nice grain and malts with some tart fruits mostly lime/lemon nice crisp Saison. Finish is lots of spice cloves, nutmeg good earthy notes. Nice flavors grainy fruity and spicy not too much funk some underlying horse blanket kind of like Hennepin but fruitier and little spicier.

Mouthfeel is light with some nice peppy carbonation that brings out the flavors without being fizzy.

Overall very enjoyable brew or maybe just in the mood for a crisp Saison either way I would highly recommend and repurchase if I find again in the future. My second Smokestack Series from Boulevard both have been excellent.

4.03/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- A bold golden straw colored body. Lot's of foam with about 1 finger worth of head retention. Moderate amount of lacing.

S- Pepper, sour lemon and clove dominating the senses. There is also some light grass and straw tones as well.

T- Definitely tasting lemon and some earthy pear. Also there is the some spice; clove and pepper from the yeast. Spice is sort of overbearing at the end. Barely taste the light biscuit-like malt.

M- Light mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Very thin and crisp. Would work better with less of the pepper taste though.

O- I really love Saisons. Extremely complex beers that are wonderful when executed properly. However, I feel like the yeast were too predominant in this beer. The pepper and clove overwhelmed the fruit and sour flavors I enjoy. A good beer nonetheless.

3.54/5  rDev -14.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Spice, like pepper and basil, that creates a sweet sensation on its own. Grapefruit, jolly rancher. Light-medium body. I think the essence of a saison is that it is light and drinkable. I'm afraid this is not nearly light enough (in alcohol, flavor, etc) to be a light summer drink. It is fairly well balanced, but why go overboard with the alcohol? Somebody explain... does it make it more "complex"? Somehow Belgian saisons and lambics accomplish tremendous complexity while still being light and refreshing. I appreciate subtlety, and I wish American brewers would start using more of it.

A: Pours a clear light amber with lots and lots of dense white head. It dissipates fairly slowly and retains a nice blanket, leaving thick areas of lacing.

S: Sweet fruit, spice, and yeast, with a light touch of funk.

T: Lightly grainy sweetness with a particularly sharp high end. There's also a very light touch of fruit. The overall effect is very pleasant.

M: Medium to full body, medium carbonation.

Overall, a nice saison, and pretty refreshing for 8% (though that's probably dangerous!).

4.4/5  rDev +6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a huge head at first, easily four fingers, extremely delicate, almost no bubbles per se save a few fat ones around the point of pour, bone white, looks like a soufflé as it settles, wispy yet sticky streaks of lacing. Hazy golden colored liquid, the lightness of the particulate hides it well, filled with active streams of bubbles. The nose is gently forceful, nutmeg, clove, caraway seed and lemon peel, taut yeastiness, softer pinch of bubblegum, as the spice normalizes you perceive more apricot, peach, yellow apple fruit, the banana stays further in the background, longlasting presence but even better stays fresh. Medium-bodied, tighter and more focused than expected from looking at all those bubbles, the carbonation is active but not frothy. Mixes in some sour white grapefruit and orange to the lemon base, refreshingly citrusy. The yeasts again are not doughy nor too soft and it is not on the funky side of the spectrum. Clove, nutmeg but also basil and oregano, not herbaceous as in grassy but herbal as in garden herbs. Blends in pineapple and mango with the peach, apricot, pear base. As it warms takes on a more honeyed dimension. Dryness ensures erect bearing through the finish. Very thoughtfully put together while not over-intellectualized.

Their flagship beer!

Pours out a pretty hazy, bright, golden orange with a huge, 3 finger white head.

The aroma is filled with tropical fruit notes, some sweet bready malt, banana, clove, some slight spiciness, very subtle funky notes and of course the traditional Belgian yeast.

The taste is also filled with sweeter tropical fruit notes like mango, pineapple, some grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest, a slight white pepper type of spice, banana, clove, subtle earthy/grassy notes and some funk, but not too much.

The body is light and mouthfeel is crisp and bubbly with tons of carbonation. The 8% is completely hidden; can't smell, taste or even feel the alcohol.

This is such a tasty and refreshing Saison all the while incorporating some juicy tropical fruit notes. It's a little light on the traditional funk and Belgian characteristics, but very good and slightly bitter for the style too.

A: Pours hazy pale golden with a tall and very light crystal white head. After some time the head settles and leaves decent lacings.

S: Funk and Belgian yeast up front. Lots of fruit, and quite some spice. Malty. Dry grass , stable and leather. Some faint smoked ham in the back.

T: Follows the smell, but is a tad better in every aspect. The spice is stronger as is the citric fruits.

M: Funky aftertaste that lingers. Body is medium and a bit harsh, while carbonation is rich but very smooth.

O: A very nice American take on a complex Belgian style.

There are beers that produce heads of whipped egg whites, and this is one of them. It's just gorgeous to look at, with those stiff peaks of froth.

And the smell! Clove and spice, LOTS of pear, and subtle tropical fruits. I could bury my nose in the glass. And I would, except for that massive head.

The intensity of flavor is unexpected. The aromas are complex, but they suggest subtlety. This beer is not subtle. The smell does not prepare you for the intensity of juicy goodness. Want an over-the-top farmhouse ale? Mekka lekka hi mekka hiney ho! Your wish is granted.

My only complaint is that it drinks a little flat from the bottle. On tap, where the carbonation can be manipulated, it can be an almost perfect beer.

A- Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Golden and cloudy. Big head of 2 fingers. Not real thick though. Super carbonated . Bar tender had to open 2 bottles because they both were like bottle bombs.

S- Metallic notes seem to be dominating the nose. Some citrus and fruity smell finds a way to break through. Not a huge aroma, but enough to let you know what you are getting yourself into.

T- Metallic flavors that i smelled lead the way. Yeasty and earthy. Citrus hops come through. Touch of sweetness after the metallic flavor subsides. Not overly bitter with a moderately dry finish. Very solid flavor for a farmhouse ale. Exactly what you expect.

M- Drinkable and refreshing. Would be great on a hot day. Highly carbonated. Mid bodied.

O- Fits the profile of a saison perfectly. Not the style of beer that I prefer, but i had to give it a shot. Would think it to be very pleasing for a more farmhouse person.

12oz. Into the Boulevard narrow snifter. Gold pour, lots of carb throughout. Billowing white head fill the rest of the glass. Two fingers retained damn near the whole glass.

Aroma, quite citrusy. Pineapple, lighter clove, Italian spice.

Taste, sweeter pineapple and stone fruit upfront. Pear. Lemon zest. Some earthy spice, pepper. Slight herbal bite in the finish.

Just a little stickier than I would like, and maybe a tad sweet. Otherwise this is lively and quite drinkable. Pretty refreshing. Well worth trying.
Got the 4 pack with glass for half off, definetely worth that.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

12 ounce bottle with "Best Buy Date" of September 2013 tasted on March 10th, 2013. Tasted from tulip glass. Note that they sell this beer both as a 750ml and as a four-pack of 12 oz bottles (at least at my liquor store).

A: Hazy and straw-colored. I dont see much (if any) of an orangish hue as you get with some Saisons. It's also more transparent than I expect. It's definitley not clear, but it's not as hazy as other Saisons. Head is solid: creamy with small bubbles. Overall, appearance is average. I love the characteristic orangish hue of Belgian Saisons coupled with the haze that's indicative of good yeast suspension. This beer has neither of those characteristics to my eye.

S: Initial smell is fruity - tropical fruits to be exact. I get some pineapple, mango...a little apple. Definitely an estery brew. I don't get much (if any) black pepper. Subsequent smells reveal a little more of the beer's yeasty character, although it's not as funky as some Saisons can be.

T: Initial taste: biscuity/bready, spicy, and sour. The beer is much more buscuity than it looks. It provides solid base for the sour apple and pineapple notes that dominate its sour characteristics. It's also pretty spicy. Get lots of black pepper. Subsequent tastes reveal more of a sweeness/honey taste. Very dry beer, as you would expect. Aftertaste is a little more alcoholic than I would like.

M: Very effervesent beer. Light/medium body, but very dry as indicated earlier.

O: Overall, I'm impressed. I think its appearance is this beer's weakest point while it's taste is its strongest. Things I liked: its tropical fruit aroma, its biscuit::sour ratio, and it's spicy notes. Things I didn't like: it's somewhat simple appearance (for a Saison). Also, I personally like my Saisons to be a bit sweeter and have a bit more of a yeast flavor than this one possesses. If I were to improve on this beer, I'd add some more honey to give it a slightly sweeter flavor and also keep more yeast in suspension to give it a bit more body. Overall though, I'm impressed. Not my favorite commercial Saison (that belongs to Funkwerks) but I'd say it's in my Top 5.
