BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States
boulevard.com

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

appearance- Golden yellow with a fluffy three finger head.

aroma- Pineapple, citrus, and a little saison spiciness.

taste- Fruity upfront with tropical fruit flavors coming through followed by a mildly spicy saison yeast cutting through the sweetness. Finish sees some more of the fruity sweetness coming back along with a linger saison spice all with a bready malt in the background.

feel- medium bodied, medium/high carbonation, and a semi sweet feel overall.

overall- Pretty good saison but it's a little too sweet for my liking. The tropical fruit sweetness takes over too much where it should be just a compliment. At times it verges on being a saison/ipa hybrid. Definitely not a traditional saison, but good overall and worth getting again.

Absolutely delicious! Pours a beautiful cloudy orange with a nice fluffy thick head. The head on this one stays with you all the way. The taste is a fruity explosion with a nice sweetness. Definitely on the richer side though, not a beer you could drink several of in one sitting. Great mealtime beer. Finishes with a nice clean crispness. Have had from large 750 ml bottle poured into a glass and also straight from a 4 pack of bottles.

Pours a hazy yellow with a nice amount of head that trails the glass as you drink. The smell is full of all sorts of smells. Grapefruit hops, a bit of wheat, some spice, and pepper. The taste was just as complex with a bright start with hops and yeast flavors, then mellowing to banana flavors mixed with spice and pepper for a remarkably clean finish. Absolutely loved this one.
