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.

"A refreshing American rendition of a classic Belgian style, Tank 7 starts with a surge of alluring aromatics. Lush notes of tropical fruits deftly frame its sweet body of crisp, bready malt." Brewed in the style of a Saison/Farmhouse Ale. A year-round offering by Boulevard, available in 12 oz. 4 packs, 750 ml bottles, and on draft.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a Boulevard tulip. Served above 54º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours an aggressive pearl white head of a frothy, smooth consistency. Retention is very good, and lacing is light and spotty. Body tone is a fairly hazy golden amber with specked sediment in tow. Carbonation is light. 4.25

(Smell) Cracker malts, some light biscuit with a moderate fruit sweetness. Hops play a significant role in the aroma, providing some lemony, peppery and muted citrus aroma with a modest bitterness. The hops pair well with the yeast for a doubly potent citrusy aroma with a subtle pinch of Belgian spice for accent and style. Potency is high. 4.5

(Taste) The malt body provides a very clean base with an amplified fruit sugar sweetness and a touch more density to the body, fairly sweet but not cloyingly so. Yeast and hops play a lesser role, but the latter provides a subtle fruit hop flavor and a touch of bitterness, the yeast generates more clean fruit accent than spice, which adds to the complexity and accessibility of the flavor. Finishes with a dash of pear juice and lemon. 4.25

(Mouthfeel) Texture is smooth, fluffy, a bit under syrup viscosity. Carbonation adds a fluffy creaminess for a simple, smooth carbonation, lightening up the body just a notch. Body is medium+ for a Saison, light/medium overall. Alcohol presence is light. 4

(Overall) Tank 7 is an excellent Saison, perhaps with an enhanced drinkability too much for its own good, it may not play true to style. Expect a lot of citrus and fruit flavor and aroma, a simple and enjoyable mouthfeel and a moderate hop character for something that's equally as American as it is Belgian in style, Boulevard showcases the best of both worlds in Tank 7. 4.25
