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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Bright golden yellow. Mildly cloudy, lots of particles. Short off-white head, decent retention.

S: Lemon zest and citrus, malt, sugared fruits. mild hop character along with lots of earthy and floral aromas.

T/M: Citrus (mainly lemon zest and lemon grass), belgian yeast, mild pepper. Yeast, malt, grain, hops, they're all there; great balanced amount of flavors in the ingredients. Alcohol is a bit overwhelming, yet still on the balanced side. Sweet, slightly bitter, dry mouthfeel. Light body, moderately carbonated.

D: VERY good. Typically not a fan of saisons and farmhouses, and impressed with this one.

Huge thanks to miikezombie for sending me a couple of these. 750 cork and cage poured into a tulip. The beer pours a golden color with a slight haziness and a hyyuge frothy white head that leaves a ton of lacing. The smell is lemon peel, pepper, and clove with a slight subtle funk. The tast is strong of lemon, pepper and clove with a slight noticable trace of alcohol. The mouthfeel is very good, medium bodied slightly creamy with good carbonation. Really good beer.
Thanks Glen.
