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.

Pale gold with a two finger head. Splitting one to sample with my girl out of mini St. Bernardus chalices. Nice nose of fruit and mild funk. Smells pretty -- I like my girls fruity and funky, don't judge.

Peppery and crisp. Crackers and bread come through for the malt bill. Citrus fruit follows and compliments the fruity nose. The palate has a creaminess to it that is really nice. Medium-bodied and drinks easy for the ABV. Spice finish lingers in a pleasant way. Well-made and a pleasure to drink.

Really impressed with this Farmhouse-style ale and am happy to know it is distributed in the area. I'd love to drink this with a cheese plate and fruit.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Color of champagne. Nice bubbly head. Not creamy though--more on the grainy side.

S: Strong floral aroma. Smells like a bouquet, with some peppery notes as well.

T: Again, very floral, but with a peppery/bitter notes. Flavor is on the stronger side. Somewhat hoppy.

M: Carbonation is noticeable. Medium body.

O: This is a great Kansas beer, nice example of farmhouse ale style.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass.

APPEARANCE: golden straw color with two finger head, highly carbonated, excellent retention and some lacing on the glass. Very nice looking beer.

SMELL: funky, pepper, pears, bread.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, funky, pepper, pears, bread and tastes better as it warms. The hops are not overly assertive, nicely balanced, the alcohol 8.5% is perceptible.

PALATE: higher carbonation, creamy, medium body for the style.

OVERALL: this is a good Saison but not the best I've had, solid but not spectacular. Boulevard is an excellent brewery and I'll be trying more soon.
