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.

38 IBU

12oz bottle, best by March 5, 2013. Served at around 40-45F.

Pours very hazy with wonderful swirls of sediment. Large three finger fluffy white head that leaves globs of sticky lacing and holds a great cap. Purty.

Fruity aroma with a lot of melon, pear, tropical fruits, a bit of banana and citrus, some bread & yeast. Very good strength.

Flavor is also very fruity, pear, pineapple, melon, orange, grapefruit, mango, it’s like fruit juice, semi-sweet, some bread and yeast, moderate bitterness, minimal alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a bit sticky, good carbonation.

Mmmmm, this is good, really good. Very fruity and juicy. I normally don’t gravitate towards Belgian Pales/Goldens/Saisons, but Tank 7 may change that for me. So glad to have them here in Georgia now. Lookin’ forward to trying more from the Smokestack series.

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+.
