Availability: Year-round

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.

4.58/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Poured into an imperial pint from a 12-oz. bottle (from the 4-pack available locally). Best by 7/29/2011.

Appearance: Thick, white head with excellent lacing. Very bubbly. More than cloudy, this turns your glass into a snowglobe. The carbonation keeps kicking around some sediment, it's pretty amazing to look at, actually. Absolutely excellent head retention and lacing. This is what a great beer should look like.

Smell: Banana, clove, and lemon. A complex and strong aroma.

Taste: Spicy without overpowering, strong banana tones with a bit of citrus, complex and balanced.

Mouthfeel: Spicy with some bitterness but also light and smooth, which is surprising given the appearance.

Drinkability: My favorite beer at the moment. First had this one on tap at Fiorella's Jack Stack BBQ (Freight House location in downtown KC, blocks from the brewery) and it blew me away. I've had it in the 750 corked bottle and the 12-oz. capped bottle and love this beer every time. I desire this beer more than any other I've tried to date. I have a lot of world-class beers to try yet, but that's why I'm on here! Cheers!
