4.43/5 rDev +6.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: A cloudy, lemon hue with a huge and frothy head--great retention; lacing is pretty good
S: Wonderful citrus, banana, apple, cloves, pepper aromas up front; the yeasty fruitiness plays splendidly with the hoppy citrus; there is a bit of a bready base but there's also a slight grassy and grainy base
T: Pretty hoppy; again, those citrusy hops play beautifully against the fruity yeast: lots of apples and citrus and cloves and banana; this has a dry and bitter beginning but a balanced and slightly sweet finish
F: Fairly creamy with above average mouth feel; perhaps a touch thin in the finish
O: Tank 7 is a beautiful, slightly hoppy saison; this is an everyday (and affordable) saison; perfect for summer but quite frankly I could drink this any time; I love this beer

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+.
