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.

A - Pours a cloudy golden-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down very slowly leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of wheat, lemon zest and other citrus, coriander, yeast, farmhouse smells, some grains, and a bit of funk.

T - Starts off with a mix of lemon zest and other citrus flavors with some wheat and grains and some coriander. Through the middle, some yeast and farmhouse flavors come through with a touch of pepper and some funk. The finish is a mix of lemon zest and grapefruit with some sweet wheat and grains and some Belgian yeast.

M - Medium bodied with moderate-heavy carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and lightly tart and funky finish.

D - Very drinkable. Really nicely balanced Saison. Nice amount of yeast and spices.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip. Pours a golden yellow color with lots of carbonation and a big pillowy head that leaves good lacing throughout. The nose is beautiful on this beer. It is dominated by a spicy, zesty character of coriander, lemon zest, pepper, and as the beer warms, some hop character as well. Very quiet bready malt in the back. The taste and mouthfeel is very full of carbonation; it almost takes away from the beer, but not quite. It's quite dry up front. Lots of sweet lemons, spicy burn on the tongue with the very minimal touch of burn from the alcohol. Overall a very tasty beer. I'm glad I got the 4 pack.

Fantastic, dangerously drinkable saison from KC of all places. High carb, tall lasting light frothy head, gold (not amber or orange) hazy. Dry yet malty pils, bitter with Belgian phenols blending perfectly. Perhaps a bit simple, maybe not enough farmhouse, but really so tasty and clone-worthy.

Nose here is very spicy, they just really jump out..definite fruity esters booming out as well, with a yeastiness also present.

Carbonation here is very spritzy. Hard to swallow at first. Taste has a nice, tropical fruity sweetness to it as one would expect but far from the sweetest out there...with a really nice coriander component to it like that found on the nose. I also notice the yeast there as an undercurrent....and there's a fairly strong (for style) medicinal bitterness on the finish that really finishes this one out dryly.

Pretty solid saison, though a bit strong for the style. That said, the booze doesn't show through and it's well put together and easy to drink.
