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.

Damn good beer, tho it's pushing the envelope a bit. Bottle opened with a big pop at a good temperature and poured with a huge, foamy, frothy, fluffy, cream-colored head that lasts a very long time and some lace. Color is very slightly hazy yellow amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is dominated by lovely fresh hop, citrus, a bit of resin. Flavor's much like nose with again hop in front backed with some malt sweet and some bitter. Traditional saison characteristics have been supplanted by the hop domination. Body/carbonation are excellent. Finish is like flavor, hop strength carries thru for a very long time and only a little alcohol warmth. Great drinking beer. Wish we could get it locally.

A- Pours a big, bubbly golden color with a HUGE white head. (Brett?)

S- Big pepper, sharp citrus, grass in the aroma. A big yet delicate aroma for a Saison.

T- This is a stand-alone Saison. Citrusy, piney hops with tons of peppery esters. Downright great.

M- Light and crisp.

O- Heard great things, and this was expectedly very nice. Will return with some good food.

Poured from a bottle into a Chimay goblet

A- pours a cloudy shade of dark yellow with a solid white head that fades to wispy bubbles, almost resembling the top of a pond. Very nice.

S- nice aroma of banana and clove - not too strong. Very nice

T- light spice, slight bubblegum flavor from the yeast. Biscuity taste as well. Very nice.

M- medium bodied. About standard for a saison

O- solid, yet underwhelming, saison. About the baseline of what a good saison is - very no frills

Another stellar effort from Boulevard!

This is a unique Belgian farmhouse brew. Pours with a big head cloudy pale translucent in the glass but not overly carbonated.

Very complex flavor profile with the Belgian yeast in the forefront then citrus, and clear hop flavors developing. The high alcohol content is not obvious.

Finishes dry

This could pair up with a variety of dishes.

A straw coloured ale with a white head. Firm bitterness into IPA territory with some alcohol warming. The aftertaste has some mild fruitiness and Belgian year character. The beer is effervescent and has a dry mouthfeel. The aroma is hoppy mixed with Belgian yeast. A very refreshing beer.
