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: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Look: Appropriately hazy for the style, with a massive, fluffy, snow white head that sustains itself until the last drop. The color is a medium gold, with light emanating through it. Much lacing on the glass.

Smell: It's immediately apparent that the balance of fruit (apricot and orange) and hops (earthy pine and tea leaves) is impeccable. A solid backdrop of pale malt holds things together.

Taste: Biscuit malt is well-seasoned with sweet spices (coriander and nutmeg) and fruit (grapefruit and apricot). The taste is just as balanced as the bouquet, and is further rounded out by a nice light bitterness and an intriguing minty finish.

Mouthfeel: The medium body is brightened and lightened by a zesty, carbonic bite. The weight ends up being just right for this beer--it's hearty enough to support the flavor complexity, yet light enough to make for a very refreshing beverage,.

Overall: While excellent, this saison would easily blend in with the higher quality pack were it not for a few very small surprises, such as the minty taste in the finish. For fans of the style, it's definitely worth having. For others, it may feel forgettable as it fades away nto the fruit and spice conglomeration of the other saisons they've had before.
