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.

Hazy orange-yellow color with several fingers of bright white head that lasts. Belgian yeast up front in the aroma and taste, with banana, papaya, orange, lemon peel, white pepper and soap notes. Medium bodied for the style with decent carbonation. Had high expectations for this one, but the taste is pretty middle of the road.

Poured into a Duvel tulip, dated best by 3/16/2016

Appearance - cloudy golden colored body with thick white head

Smell - citrus tones - lemon, lime, Apple, pear, clove, wheat

Taste - much like the aroma - citrus with the lemons/limes, Apple, pear, mango, clove, wheat, hint of black pepper

Mouthfeel - heavier end of medium bodied, full carbonation, citrus sweetness upfront, Belgian spiciness/yeastiness follows, slight tartness

Overall - well done Saison here, hits all of the notes properly without a lot of funk or bitterness.

Price Point - $10/4 pk 12 oz bottles

This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Light lacing stuck around the glass nicely and slid at a nice pace.
The smell had some citrus, Belgian spices and sweet floral notes over top of a light bready/yeastiness. Slight funk enters in for the balance.
The taste started with the spice and lead into a sly funky sweetness. Citrusy aftertaste sharpens and hits in the finish.
The mouthfeel was about a light to medium on the body with a fairly sharp sweet to funky barnyard-esque complexity hitting my tongue nicely.
Overall, so this was a mistake, right? Haha, cheers to Boulevard for making one of the greatest mistakes of a saison! On par and beyond!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

12 oz. bottle poured into a goblet.

A- Nice, semi-hazed effervescent light gold. Head is white with great lacing, and a rocky two finger retention.

S- Bright lemon citrus. Bready malt. Belgian spices. Slightly floral. Really great aromatics coming out of this one. Complex.

T- Bready, some dry citrus peel/pith. Mildly alcoholic in flavor, and spicy.

M- Crisp. A bit of a dry finish. Rather light for the ABV. Carbonation is bright.

O- This is great. Alcohol is a little strong but such a great aroma.
