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.

This is my first time trying a saison and I have no idea what to expect.
A – Light yellow with a big puffy head that dissipates to a slight fizz on the top of the beer. Quite a bit of particles floating in the beer. Looks beautiful!
A – At first smell I smelt lemon zest, with a hint of maybe tangerine. Also smelled a lot of spices later learned it was likely peppercorns. As the beer wormed the peppercorns really became more pronounced.
T – The first taste was too much, wow, there is a lot going on in my mouth right now. Okay, my mouth has adjusted and I get a malt sweetness up front. In the middle of the mouth the hoppy aspects come into play. The backend it taken over by a peppery lemon finish.
MF– Light bodied that leaved the mouth salivating. Quite a bit of carbonation that leaves your tongue tingling.
D – This is a different sort of beer for me. Not sure I really like the style or not. It is drinkable but I am not a fan of the pepper taste in my beer. Will need to try other beers in this style but jury is out for my appreciation of saisons.

A - Cloudy yellow, huge head, modest lacing. Looks like a standard american ale

S - Wheat, lemon, freshness.

T - Banana, lime, pear, grapefruit. A beachy drink in a bottle. Some alcohol warmth and spice, and a delicate hop finish.

M- creamy smooth

Easy drinking, Dangerous full flavored yet smooth. Sweet and spicy. Lots to appreciate.

Hazy straw colored in appearance. A half inch layer of foam across the top of the glass. Smell that wonderful Belgian yeast strain. Perhaps a bit of candy sugar in the scent. Biscuity malt with some pine like Pacific hops in the aftertaste. Sort of European style meets modern American brewing. Moderate thickness on the mouthful. Deceptively smooth for the strength.

12 oz bottle into tulip. best before 12/13.

A: massive frothy white head on a straw, hazy body. fantastic retention and great plumes of lacing left behind.

S: black peppercorns. a very minor funk. starts stronger, but seems to dissipate with time. transitions to sweet unfermented sugars that remind me a lot of a Belgian tripel.

T: this thing tastes floral. sweet fruit, pear. the wheat hits smack dab in the middle. a hefty dose of grain finishes it off with a minor alcohol heat. really good drink from start to finish. a bit bigger than your typical saison, but when it goes down this smooth it is alll gooodd.

M: zesty carb on a medium, almost full body.

D: really good stuff from boulevard here. definitely one of their staples as it should be. a bit of a bigger saison but definitely not raw or undrinkable. pick some up if you have it in your distro.
