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.

Review taken from notes July 2014.

12 oz brown bottle complete with a Belgo feel and look to it in terms of shape. Label is pretty straight forward with an elegant design. A very nice label. Much how an American Belgian should come. Poured into a stemmed Belgian style tulip glass.

A - glowing bright yellow on the pour which turns more yellow golden In the light. A fluffy white head is massive and sits very nice throughout the experience. Lovely particles float about this farmhouse ale leaving a pretty yellow haze in the body.

S - the tank 7 yeast stood out up front with a big doughy bread aroma followed by an earthy character. Typical but splendid Saison whiffs fill the nose of banana, clove and Belgian spices, and bubble gum. The malt balance was very good with a grain like hay. Citrus hops feel the backend with fresh lemon and orange.

T - grain and hay to start with a second sip really highlighting the banana and clove found in the nose. Hop presence is citrusy lemon and orange bouncing off one another very well. A slight nutty character is found within the depths of the mild bitterness the hops provide. Finish intertwines banana, clove, Belgian spices, pepper, and citrus. Tank 7 's yeast is blended perfectly with the ape itself giving a solid American farmhouse experience.

M - medium bodied and refreshing. Big on the Belgian style, Tank 7 has a smooth velvety feel, laying it's flavors across very well. Alcohol is hidden and the yeast is tasty. Thin but smooth with a semi dry finish.

O - a solid offering of an American made farmhouse ale that offers a classic Belgian aroma and flavor with letting you explore the real creativity of Boulevard 's yeast. I'd drink this again. Definitely a good offering.
