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.

Poured from their 12oz bottle...

Appearance - Yellow, nice head, great lacing. Bits of yeast floating around from an overly aggressive pour. Stunning.

Smell - Belgian yeast & spice, bread, citrus zest, apple, bubble gum, and pear.

Taste - Bubblegum, bread, apple finished with a nice pepper.

Mouthfeel - Mouthfeel is almost medium, high carb, crisp. A little bit tart and sweet at times.

Overall - Excellent. Nice combination of tart and sweetness. Will be going back to buy a lot more of these.

I have recently got into this style of beer. I had never really had any until this last year but it is quickly becoming one of my favorite styles. This one is definitely leading the way. This one came in a four pack and I poured it into a standard pint glass. The color was a nice pale gold. It did have a lot of head which slowly subsided into a nice lacing pattern. I allowed it to be exposed to the air for a few minutes more then I took a whiff.

The smell was floral with a nice spiciness. You can smell those esters in there, to me that is what makes the Belgian styles so interesting. Lots of alcohol, but they don't overwhelm. Some fruit, maybe apricot? and of course the ever present clove that seems to dominate this style.

The taste was not surprising considering I picked up a great deal of the flavors from the aroma. You get that funkiness from the Belgian yeasts, clove, honey, and fruit. It had a really clean yet flavorful taste.

Overall one of the better Saison's I have tried and I am happy this is being distributed in my area. I am constantly searching for new and interesting brews. Nevertheless, this one stands up to most of the ones I have tried and would recommend this one for sure.
