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.

best by 05/16/12...last of assorted 4 pack from Boulevard...

A- Pours a brilliant yellow gold, topped by a massive sudsy creamy white head. Head disappates slowly. Once almost gone...a couple of swirls around tulip....and head is back. 3 fingers worth. Ample lacing throughout. There is a lot of very, very fine sediment...which I usually detest. But...for unknown reasons this is not bothering me today.

S- Light citrus sweet. Some grass. Just hint of clove spice.

T- Very light and slightly spicy. Some citrus/lemon. Grass....fresh cut lawn, I guess.

M- Very fine carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

O- Will definitely seek this out again. Easy to drink. Light and refreshing. Wish there was no sediment. Other than that, no complaints. Would never guess this had an ABV of 8%.
