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.

I was going to break out something insanely rare for review #500, but decided against it at the last minute. This beer I am sure is just as good as any other, regardless of rarity. Tank 7 pours out a hazed golden color, and wears a quick to rise frothed head. The nose is full of musty wood, barnyard funk, tropical fruit, and pepper. The taste is nearly identical, but extremely dry, and with a whole hell of a lot of hops backing things up. The carbonation is high, which adds a great level of complexity to the big hop presence. Mouthfeel is really crisp, only furthering the drinkability of this brew. I have to say that this is one of my favorite styles of beer, and goddamn, this brewery knows how to make their Saisons. I will have to refer back to my review of Saison Brett to see which one rated higher. I cannot wait to see how this one stacks up against the soft shelled crab I am about to partake in. Cheers, and happy #500!
