BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States

Style: Belgian Saison

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.

On tap in a pint glass
A: Light orange, thin head
S: Yeast, wheat, herbs
T: Citrus, malt, Belgian yeast
M: Medium-bodied, doesn’t taste its abv
O: Tasty. Not sure this glass gave it its full potential, I’ll be sure to get a bottle. I don’t disagree with the farmhouse ipa comment

2 finger head with aroma of Belgian yeast, fruit and spice, taste follows nose with flavors of fig plum pepper and cinnamon medium mouthfeel with floral and grassy hops finish, one of my all time favorite beers

Boulevard rarely disappoints and this one is not one to walk away sad from...

A dark amber colored brew with white foam and little lacing, what meets the nose is frankly unremarkable. The mouthfeel is light-bodied and even has some slight smoothness to it, and the taste is full of fruity notes that are not tamped down from the high ABV this farmhouse provides. The smoothness of the beer hides the fact you should be careful not to just chug the thing as it is 8.5%, afterall. Overall, this is a very good beer, probably the best farmhouse I've had to date.

Not a farmhouse, more like a double IPA. Lot’O other flavors going on there too. If understand that, you’ll like this beer.

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter glass. 8.5% abv

Appearance- Pours a bright yellow-orange. Massive white foaming head slow to recede. Medium clarity.

Smell- Belgian yeast, orange, grapefruit, coriander.

Taste- Sweet bread, into the candy sugar belgian yeast flavor. Becomes quite citric, with grapefruit, orange, and hints of lemon as well. Holds in a dank earthiness as well. Becoming more bitter in the finish, ends with pepper, apricot, and coriander notes.

Mouthfeel- Medium heavy in body. Active carbonation.

Overall- A pleasant farmhouse saison. Bready, yeasty, and fruit like. All the elements. Drinks like a 7 percent brew, about the norm for this style, so that 8.5 percent abv is masked well. Well crafted.
