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.

This is a perfect example of a Saison. The smell is like a fresh baked loaf of yeasty bread spiked with peppercorns. The head is a lofty pure white pillow and remains for most of the entire drink. The taste is what a farmhouse ale should be - smooth, you immediately taste grape fruity hops and then a peppery and very mild alcoholic finish.

Part of me loves that fact that this beer is 8.5% ABV but part of me wishes it were only half that amount so I could drink more at my favorite pub.

Poured into a Stella Artois chalice

A: Opaque golden. An aggressive pour (big mistake) produced a huge, three inch white head that sat and sat, refusing to dissipate for quite a while. Lots of lacing. My next pour was much slower and gave a better result.

S: Citrus, floral, featuring oranges and lemon zest. Black pepper, too.

T: Smooth with Belgian yeast, oranges, lemons and pepper sliding in on a highly carbonated sleigh. Nice and easy drinking.

M: Light to medium with high carbonation.

O: Again, pour slowly for maximum taste. A great saison. Recommended.
