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.

Took a long reviewing hiatus and this one has the pleasure of getting me back in the game before several DIPAs go under the lights. Served in an oversized stemless wine glass. Very light golden color and hazy with a chalky, rocky head of 2-3 inches. Good retention and lacing - enticing on a hot summer day to be sure. Smell it typical of a saison - citrus zest and pepper dominate. Much more earthy and brettanomyces in the taste. I like a little more creaminess in the mouthfeel and this one is toward the drier end of saisons which helps the drinkability. This hides the alcohol incredibly well - I'm actually surprised this is 8.5%. I could easily put down a couple of these. As this warms and I pair with some atrisan gouda I like it a little more, not that it was bad at all to begin with.

Overall, it is a good domestic farmhouse ale. I haven't had a ton but it is a solid offering and when my palate is really looking for some funk and a dry finish I'd certainly consider buying again. What I really like is that this is sold in a 4 pack and the pricing is reasonable. Saisons are wonderful to have around in the summer months and it just seems impractical to stock a bunch of bombers so I applaud Boulevard for the 4 pack format. I'll probably continue to try a few others like Brooklyn's before seeking this out again but will say I'm happy to have 3 more in the fridge and could see myself coming back for more at some point.

What a great beer experience. This is a great example of American Farmhouse. Don't know what that is yet? Grab a Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale and find out. This beautiful straw colored beer has a rocky white head and lace that forms in the glass. The aroma is sweet, slightly hoppy and a bit funky but not too funky. The light color belies the malt richness that fills your mouth and the sweetness that hits your tongue. Next the beer clears off the palate nicely with a dry finish which is attributed to the corn and high alcohol content of this beer. Finally the hop aroma lingers in your soft palate and plays with the Brettanomyces character that is so delicately present.
