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.

a: cloudy yellow/orange, some sediment floating, nice three finger white head slowly settles to a quarter inch of cap.

s: sweet, fruity, yeast, pepper.

t: nice funky yeast with banannas as the most prevalent fruit. slight pepper taste on the back end.

m: full body, alittle over carbonated and a long dry finish.

Poured into tulip from 750mL bottle.

Appearance: Golden blonde with a foamy white head. Really hazy and cloudy with sediment floating around. Good amount of lacing on the sides and top of the beer.

Smell: Fruity. Funky yeast is present as well. Good amount of citrus notes along with hints of bananas.

Taste: Slightly sweet with a little lemon zest and other citrusy flavors. Bitter taste in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. I expected it to be lighter and more refreshing. Decent amount of carbonation.

Overall: Not usually a fan of Saisons/Farmhouse Ales, but this can be an exception. It bordered on being too bitter for me in the finish, though. Regardless, I still enjoyed it.

Poured from the tap into a tasting glass.

The color is a hazy light yellow/gold with a finger or two of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.

The smell is a bit hoppy with some slight bitterness and a nice sweet malt aroma that is her, there and everywhere in the nose. Very good at first glance..

The taste is a bit hoppy and sweet at the same time. There is some nice fruit tartness with a big sweetness that is one of my favorite things about a Triple. There is some nice Belgian flavor that is hanging through out this beer like a silk curtain. Bitterness on one side of the curtain and sweet malts and then passes in-between but never disturbs the peace.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied with a nice drinkable feel. There is a great body to this beer that makes it feel like there is something there but then does not weight on you as much as you first fear. A really smooth beer with some nice overtones.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

750 mL bottle poured into a goblet. Batch 710295, as if that's helpful to anyone reading this. Best by 7/2011.

Appearace - Crystal clear golden body with a huge white head. Retention is excellent. Floaty sediment in it, too.

Smell - Fruity ester aroma. Apples and citrus. Very fruity. A little grainy and completely devoid of funk, which is slightly disappointing.

Taste - Much more yeasty, but otherwise follows the smell. Slight apple and apricot smell. Quite sweet, too. It has a grainy quality that isn't bad. Also a hefty hop bitterness, at least for the style.

Mouthfeel - A little syrupy. Not as light as I'd like it. When it's cold, it's really good. When it's warm, it's kinda heavy.

Overall - Pretty good. I like funkier saisons, but it's still nice. Drink it quickly, because it loses its refreshing qualities as it warms.
