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.

3.7/5  rDev -11.1%

Picked up at a local shop. I’ve been meaning to try this for a while now.

Appearance – Pours into a tulip with a hazy orange color. Very little head is achieved with a vigorous pour which dissipates quickly leaving little lacing.

Smell – Somewhat of a muted aroma. Yeast, slight citrus, sweet backbone, lemon zest.

Taste – Heavy yeast and sweet malt presence. Lemons, an odd soapiness, white pepper, banana, a hint of hops.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied, not enough carbonation (I’m curious why it is so low).

Overall – Not that impressed. Overly sweet and too little carbonation. I may give it another chance.

This beer pours a fantastic cloudy, light orange with a 2 inch foamy, white head. Incredible amounts of lacing and a blanketing remains throughout drinking. The smell is pure saison yeast fruitiness and sweetness. Tasting also gives you a mouthful of spot-on saison. The beer's light effervescence crosses paths with a touch of barnyard and biting alcohol. The aftertaste is relatively neutral and light furthering this beers drinkability. I would definitely recommend this beer to many different types of beer drinkers, but I'm glad I snagged a bottle instead...to share with my lovely beer drinking partner...and girlfriend.

Had on tap at the Boulevard outpost in the KC Airport.

Beer pours a nice bright cloudy yellow color.

The beer smells very sweet and citrusy.

The tastes very bitter on the initial sip and then opens up with some lemon and citrus on the finish.

Mouthfeel was just the right amount of carbonation to give it a little bite.

Overall a very good saison

This appears a golden straw color with a lot of foam. Lots. Billowy, cottony, foamy goodness releasing all sorts of flora aromatics. I pick up some coriander and a lot of, hm, floral/pollen-y aromas. It’s a smooth brew with a spicy kick towards the finish. A slight bitterness (from the grassy/straw hops) reminds you it’s an “American-style” saison, as does the less-than-sessionable ABV, but it’s also friendly enough to share with a less adventurous beer drinker (or someone who is not a fan of hoppy brews).
