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.

Picked this up a week or two ago at the Joe Canal's in Parsippany, having never had this before. I think it's great that Boulevard is available in this neck of the woods now and I was eager to see if this matched up with the other beers that I've had from them before. It certainly did and was an example of this style that was easily accessible and true to form at the same time. Along with a recessed feel of alcohol, those attributes made this a beer worth savoring and sharing.

The pour to this was solid - the dark blonde hue, plentiful head and gorgeous carbonation all combined for an appearance that one would expect from a Saison. Lots of straw in this and an subtly strong grapefruit undertone that just stopped short of making me pucker up. This had the look, mouthfeel, and lightness of champagne and reminded me a lot of the Brooklyn Local offerings that also come in a big bottle. Low on spice and funk but with just a hint of them to bring this beer to the next level, I was amazed at how well this went down without feeling watered-down or full of yeast.

The booze is here and by the time I got to the end of this (I did split part of it with a friend), I could feel a nice, gentle amount of warming take hold. No matter - this was great stuff and a treat for those of us here on the East Coast who are new to Boulevard. Good enough to be confused with an import and simple enough for anyone to enjoy, this is what a good Saison should be about. The aroma wasn't anything memorable but everything else was and I'll probably give this a go again sometime soon in the near future.
