Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: grumpy on 06-19-2009

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: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a snifter. The label says Best By 05-2013.

A- Pours a mostly clean light amber color with a full two and a half fingers' worth of head that retains a bit before crackling away to a an 1/8 inch head and thick, frothy lacing.

S- Effervescent aroma of sweet citrus and light but fresh hops plus saison yeast which brings a beautiful brightness to the bouquet.

T- Smooth, lemony flavor with some mild spice and a touch of hops. The yeast is there but not at the forefront as I'm used to with most saisons. This creates a nice sense of balance, but I prefer my farmhouse ales to really taste like a farmhouse. Alcohol content is deceiving.

M- Medium-high carbonation, light body and very thirst quenching.

O- Wonderful aroma and mouthfeel but the overall execution of the flavor leaves a bit to be desired. I wonder if I'm becoming too critical of Saison entries now that it's my new favorite style. Oh well.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a duPont Saison glass:

A- light golden in color, nice 1-1/2" head that lingers forever, well carbonated, with excellent lacing.

S - slightly hoppier than i expected but not at all unpleasant, slight funk from the "farmhouse" yeast.

T- the yeast hits you first, slight musky taste, followed by a bit of citrus. nice hop character, very drinkable with a dry finish.

M- carbonation is outstanding, highly drinkable.

O- this is a really strong beer for the style, while different than most Belgian's, this uniqueness is its strength.
