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.

Pours a cloudy light straw. bubbly white head sticks around

belgian yeasts. little lemon

I must admit I'm quite pleasantly surprised here. I'm not typically big on Saisons, but this is very accessible. some hoppy bitterness, a bready malt with some dusty underlying. Finally, it finishes with a crisp green apple sweet.

lots of carbonation sets up the flavours well (particularly the little apple dip at the end). Picked it up as part of a mix and match sixer almost on a whim. Glad I did. Pleasant surprise

Poured into a small tulip glass an orange tinged dull light golden with a large fluffy,sticky white head that left two full rings of lace behind as it settled verly slowly into a frothy mass.Big lemony citrus notes in the nose along with bready malt and light phenolic spice.Crisp and quite dry on the palate with citric undertones to go along with light phenols.A very good American version of the style,alot of the time I stay away from the style because of the dreaded funk,this is funk subdued.Nice job here.

A: Bright shade of golden yellow with a huge white head. Great retention. Really attractive beer.
S: Aroma really pops with a huge yeast derived fruity apple-pear combination. Little cracker maltyness and bright lemon. Wow!
T: A pronounced, but dull bitterness builds into some citrus flavor supported by just enough cracker malt flavor. Lemon shows up more restrained than in the aroma along with some juicy pineapple. Also a nice breadyness in the background.
M: Medium body, with plenty of lively carbonation. Overall mouthfeel is fairly soft.

Not that I haven't liked prevous Boulevard beers, but this one caught me by surprise. A really well done and multi-dimensional beer.
