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.

A-Pale orange color. Effervescent bubble flow towards the top. A towering, 3 finger white head that retains very well.

S-Oranges, peppery spice, aged cheese, wheat bread.

T-Aged cheese takes over at the front as it fades nicely to a peppered boozy finish with a lingering semi-sweet bready malt taste. Quite nice.

MF-Carbonated and fizzy on the palate, but finishes smooth and a bit chewy

O-An exceptional brew. My favorite saison so far.

A - Bright yellow, cloudy, thick white head has good retention and lacing.

S/T/M - Light tropical fruit hops on the nose, with an earthy yeast body. Yeast funk is there, but not too strong. Hay, grass, and some herbalness add complexity and balance. The myriad of subtle flavors blends well with the light body and high carbonation. Voluminous creaminess to the feel, finishes bone dry.

O - Very enjoyable melding of a diverse range and number of flavors. Paired with the light feel, this is one impressive saison.

my brain is confused . . . this is, by far, the lightest colored beer i've had in a long, long time. light golden yellow wheat color, looks like a bmc lite. head builds fast, but, then, surprise, it hangs around a while, and there's some nice lacing going on as it dies down to a thin layer that hangs around. nose is super clean, soft citrus, hint of lemon and grass. flavor is quite clean, light, almost airy compared to my usual fare. can't pair it with my go-to snacks, they kill the drink. 8.5 abv is as if it isn't there.

very impressed that someone made something so light, yet so good. nice job!
