BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Poured hazy golden orange. Lots of bubbles from bottom of Sam Adams glass. Fruity smell. Sessions and other fruity beers not my favorites but this one has enough going for it to be pleasant. Got better as the glass got emptier.

Sampling right now on 2/9/15. Best by 02/14/15 stamped on front bottle to the right above the label. Comes in a 12 ounce bottle. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a vintage 'Boulevard' tulip glass.

Brew pours a hazy honey-golden in color with a good 3-finger white foamy head that finally settles down to 3mm after a good 20 minutes or so. The aroma is of lots of Belgium yeast, floral with some citrus zest. More going on with the taste as the sweet floral hops is right up front with some grass and lemon zest for the finish. Actually goes down easy with no bitter or harsh aftertaste at all. Medium-bodied with good carbonation. One of the BETTER 'Farmhouse Ale' style brews I have had since they seen to be not as good as this one.

Bottle purchased at Total Wine in Jacksonville, FL.

Pours a hazy golden orange yellow, with a small amount of yeast floaties, and a lot of lacing.

Smells really nice, a good amount of fruity Belgian yeast, citrus hops, sugar, and floral aromas.

This is a really tasty saison, one of the best made in the US. It tastes almost fluffy, with airy juicy citrus, fruity yeast esters, a little kick of alcohol, and grassy, perfumy flavors too.

This is medium bodied, with a fluffy, pillowy mouthfeel, and a higher, effervescent level of carbonation. Really drinkable.

One of the best U.S. made saisons not made in Greensboro Bend, VT. A classic for good reasons.

Tasty beer. No doubt about it. Drank it alongside one of the best burgers of my life at Pen and Quill in Bmore and it was amazing. Two thumbs up!
