Poured into a snifter. The label says Best By 05-2013.
A- Pours a mostly clean light amber color with a full two and a half fingers' worth of head that retains a bit before crackling away to a an 1/8 inch head and thick, frothy lacing.
S- Effervescent aroma of sweet citrus and light but fresh hops plus saison yeast which brings a beautiful brightness to the bouquet.
T- Smooth, lemony flavor with some mild spice and a touch of hops. The yeast is there but not at the forefront as I'm used to with most saisons. This creates a nice sense of balance, but I prefer my farmhouse ales to really taste like a farmhouse. Alcohol content is deceiving.
M- Medium-high carbonation, light body and very thirst quenching.
O- Wonderful aroma and mouthfeel but the overall execution of the flavor leaves a bit to be desired. I wonder if I'm becoming too critical of Saison entries now that it's my new favorite style. Oh well.

Poured from a bottle into a Boulvard Brewing Co., Kansas City, MO pint glass purchased at the brewery where Tank 7 is born.
I saw this beer for sale at the brewery during a summer trip to Kansas City. I didn't buy any there, but I was able to take the tour and have two flights of beer from Boulevard. They were very good beers and so it encourages me to try their strong Farmhouse Ale (Tank 7) when I spotted it again in my local craft brew store.
A: A thick, rich cloudy yellow-gold with a frothy head with a lot of resilience. Thick cloud-like lacing with large bubbles.
S: Big hops, grapefruit, pepper, light toast and a very clean biting aroma.
T: The first sip is sweet, heavy big hop flavor, some citrus notes, clean and peppery with a touch of wheat. The hops in this beer are bold but not overly bitter. Like a 30-40 IBU beer. Very generous flavorings and a lovely sweetness in the midst of the bite. Love it.
M: Thick and rich with some crispness. Falls off to a dry finish like a white wine.
O: Lovely beer, a top notch brew. Wish I had tried it fresh on draft at the brewery! A staple to add to your rotation of strong ales. No overpowering flavors. Predominately hops and sweet peppers. No bad aftertaste, slight bitterness and fairly easy to drink for a thick beer. A+.
