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.

4.39/5  rDev +5.5%
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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Purchased at Safeway.
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.
