BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.

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.

Excellent beer. Strong but not overly. Type of beer that has a strong favor everytime you take a taste.

Hazy gold color. Huge white head that persists. A little bit of lace.
Peppery citrus aroma.
Grapefruit taste with late pepper.
Light to medium bodied. Nice beer.

As someone who drinks a lot of Belgian saisons, I've been wanting to try this one for a while. The nose holds up to those on this side of the Atlantic. It has nice phenols, white pepper, and some citrus to balance it out. The taste starts strong but quickly turns the wrong way. I'm not sure if it is the high ABV, but there is a lingering astringency and a slight off flavor in the finish that prevents this from being a great beer. Overall, enjoyable but not as good as I was hoping for.

This is the nectar of the gods! So delicious. It’s always in my refridgerator. It’s hoppy, but not overly so, with hints of citrus and pepper. Looks, smells, and tastes out of this world. A must try for any beer lover! Especially those who love saisons.

Look: dark golden yellow. Massive head that disappeared quickly.
Smell: somewhat bready, banana and similar fruits. Weizen-like.
Taste: Hoppy, citrusy, turns to sweetness, no tartness detected at all. It feels more wheat IPA than actual saison. Hence the low punctuation. It tastes good, but not really as expected.
Feel: rather on the heavy side, prickly carbonation. Not the easiest beer to drink.
Overall: not impressed. Good, but out of style.

Nice twist on a farmhouse ale. Nice citrus flavor up front, sweet middle, with a bitter finish.
