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- A bold golden straw colored body. Lot's of foam with about 1 finger worth of head retention. Moderate amount of lacing.

S- Pepper, sour lemon and clove dominating the senses. There is also some light grass and straw tones as well.

T- Definitely tasting lemon and some earthy pear. Also there is the some spice; clove and pepper from the yeast. Spice is sort of overbearing at the end. Barely taste the light biscuit-like malt.

M- Light mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Very thin and crisp. Would work better with less of the pepper taste though.

O- I really love Saisons. Extremely complex beers that are wonderful when executed properly. However, I feel like the yeast were too predominant in this beer. The pepper and clove overwhelmed the fruit and sour flavors I enjoy. A good beer nonetheless.

Spice, like pepper and basil, that creates a sweet sensation on its own. Grapefruit, jolly rancher. Light-medium body. I think the essence of a saison is that it is light and drinkable. I'm afraid this is not nearly light enough (in alcohol, flavor, etc) to be a light summer drink. It is fairly well balanced, but why go overboard with the alcohol? Somebody explain... does it make it more "complex"? Somehow Belgian saisons and lambics accomplish tremendous complexity while still being light and refreshing. I appreciate subtlety, and I wish American brewers would start using more of it.
