Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: grumpy on 06-19-2009

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.

Hazy light orange coloring, thick cap (about two fingers) that settles into a broken raft. Bready aroma with peppercorn, fresh herbs and slight citrus. A bit more citrus in the taste as well as tropical fruits, and biscuit. Very crisp dry finish with a fair amount of bitterness lingering. Welcome to NYC Boulvard!

Deep yellow, kind of marigold colour with a billowing, rocky white head.

Doughy and slightly funky on the nose. A strong citrusy grapefruit aroma dominates with light, peppery phenols and a touch of alcohol.

Crisp citrus upfront unfolds into sweeter tropical notes of grapefruit, mango, and papaya. Toward the end some savory and sweet bready malt hold the backbone, with slight peppercorn phenols, grapefruit bittering, and a touch of alcohol providing a dry and well-balanced finish.

Crisp, juicy, and dry. Higher alcohol and slightly noticeable ABV, but still very refreshing if you're in the mood for something a bit stronger.

12 oz bottle, tulip

A – Deep gold, with a decidedly orange tint, quite hazy/cloudy though not sedimenty. An inch of pure white bubbly foam with moderate-long retention.

S – Lightly doughy malt and then a blast of fruity hop aromas. Grapefruit, lemon, mango, papaya, honeydew, and lime. The mango is most prominent. Strong peppery/spicy phenols from the saison yeast follow. Very complex and brilliant, fresh.

T – Sweet doughy malt and then tropical fruit hop flavors, mango and papaya being the most prominent with the backing of lemon-lime citrus. Belgian/saison yeast’s characteristic pepper phenols are high in the mix, combining with moderate-high hop bitterness to round out the sweet malt and fruity hop flavors. Again, very complex, very bright.

M – Extraordinarily dry, well-attenuated, enough sweetness up front to hold up a big hop bite on the back end. Deceptively big body almost hidden by the dryness and high carbonation. Very refreshing.

O – Had this before, long ago, but this time it’s a revelation. Complex, fresh, beautiful, and very drinkable, this stands with any of the best Belgian saisons.

A: Hazy yellow/gold with a slight orange hue and a nice white head

S: Banana bread, cloves, black pepper, esters, yeasty hop

T: Like the smell, tons of banana, clove, peppery goodness. Little bit of farmhouse funk, slight hop presence.

M: Smooth, not too light, not to cloying.

O: A superb farmhouse! This style is hit and miss for me, but Tank 7 is the standard bearer for me.
