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.

Pour is a hazy gold, well carbonated, large head.

Smell is belgian yeast, spice, little clove, citrus and banana.

Taste is citrus upfront with just a hint of bitterness. This opens up to sweet fruitiness - banana, mushy apple, maybe a little sweet tangerine - and yeast. It goes down smooth, but leaves a hint of spice at the finish. No hint of alcohol in this at all.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, maybe slightly on the thin side. A little creamy, with a healthy dose of fizzy carbonation. Really great for the style.

This is really sessionable, but at 8.5% you probably don't want to down too many of these. An excellent summer beer.

Had this at Millers Ale House in Watertown MA. Light, smooth, easy to drink, very tasty. It's a very balanced beer with a heavy fruity flavor. Went down perfectly on a hot summer night. It goes great with fresh seafood or shellfish. Paired really well with oysters!
