Pours a nice pale gold with tons of carbonation and a nice fluffy white head. Slightly cloudy.
Smell is dry with notes of apple/bananna/strawberry. A slight bit of earthy hops.
Taste is very fruity up front. Slightly tart but not mouth puckering or anything. Finishes with a little bit of a bitter bite but not hoppy at all per se.
Mouthfeel is very crisp, dry and easy to drink. A nice body without feeling heavy. Very good for the style.
Overall this is a really nice example of the style. Not one of the "funkier" examples of the style but still retains a little bit of the farmhouse character. Seek if out of you are a fan of the style.

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+.
