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.

Bottle poured into glass

Big , white , thick fluffy head. Float a bottle cap on this cloud. Giant bubbles in the foam. Plenty of lacings on the way down. Translucent hazy yellow with slight carbonation.

Aroma of lemon and grapefruit citrus, clove and pepper. A whiff of banana.

Smooth start and finish. Grapefruit taste of hops on the front of the tongue. Hint of bitterness and full flavor in the middle of tongue. Taste of alcohol. Medium mouthfeel.

Wonderful beer. Delicious taste, smooth and worth stocking up in the fridge.

Pours a pale straw with a thick white head. Good lacing. Aromas of tangerine, pepper and floral notes. Spicy on the palate, black pepper and bread that give way to lemon and clove. Very dry finish. Light bodied with effervescent carbonation. Overall, a very well crafted and drinkable saison.
