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.

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.

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.
