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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A- Bright hazy golden yellow. Pours 2 fingers white head, dissipates quickly. Nice lacing throughout. Nice looking saison.

S- Some hay, a little sweet and just a bit of sour. Not an extremely fragrant beer but this isn't the most fragrant of styles.

T- Saisons are not my favorite style of beer. I want more complexity. This is a pleasant drinker but I usually don't reach for this style for this reason. Nice fresh hay notes with some sweet apple and a slightly sour finish. Barnyard start, sweet aftertaste.

M- Crisp, doesn't linger. Highly carbonated beer leads to shorter swigs.

O- I am not very experienced in this style but the Saisons I have had have always seemed to sugary, headache inducing to me. Not a bad tasting beer.

thanks to wilkins44 for this

poured into a boulevard tulip

appearance: pours a soft cloudy yellow with a big white head.

aroma: some light yeasty smells

palate: light bodied, flavors flood the entire mouth but mostly stinging feel to it

taste: not a very impressive flavor. nothing really sticks out, not bad by any means, it tastes fine, just nothing to give this beer an identity.

overall: ive only had the double wide in the smokestack, but that one was better for me. this one is good, just nothing that sticks out for me

best by 05/16/12...last of assorted 4 pack from Boulevard...

A- Pours a brilliant yellow gold, topped by a massive sudsy creamy white head. Head disappates slowly. Once almost gone...a couple of swirls around tulip....and head is back. 3 fingers worth. Ample lacing throughout. There is a lot of very, very fine sediment...which I usually detest. But...for unknown reasons this is not bothering me today.

S- Light citrus sweet. Some grass. Just hint of clove spice.

T- Very light and slightly spicy. Some citrus/lemon. Grass....fresh cut lawn, I guess.

M- Very fine carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

O- Will definitely seek this out again. Easy to drink. Light and refreshing. Wish there was no sediment. Other than that, no complaints. Would never guess this had an ABV of 8%.
