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.

ON tap at Bittercreek, Boise, WA, 2.15.12.
Finger and a half white head, hazy orangish yellow clear body, a few streams of rising bubbles, big lacing. Fairly fruity nose, pears, some lemon and wheat, dry nose and floral hops. Taste is pretty dry mild lemon, light malts, with a bit of dry hay funk on the back end.. Mouthfeel well on the light side of medium, above average effervescence. Really well made, easy drinking at this ABV and rather refreshing. Not quite the character and depth of Boulevard's Saison Brett, but very enjoyable.

A nice summer brew. Appearance is an appetizing golden color with an unfiltered hue. The smell is a strong citrus. Excellent lacing and a very decent head. Taste has a strong grapefruit flavor which is great if you like that. A little much for me. Very smooth feel however. An overall great pick for a hot summer day. I think it would pair very nicely with barbeque.

Wow. This beer was at our after-golf watering hole, and it just was incredible! Dark, robust, the anti Bud Light. It was pretty amazing watching almost everyone give it a try. The light beer advocates didn't like it, but I thought it was great. The perfect antidote to watered down beer.

A: 1.5 finger white head on a murky deep golden body.

S: very fruity with an excellent yeasty and earthy note making this one well rounded.

T: yeast, herbal, corriander up front which fades to a clove, pepper and citrus pulp finish. 

M: lighter side of medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Semi dry finish.

Overall: very aromatous and flavorful saison. This is an excellent beer.

Pours golden in color, slight haze. Half a glass of frothy white head. Lots of bubbles rise to a top coating that leaves webs of lacing.

It has a wonderful aroma. Apples, lemons, some spice, hints of banana, and straw. It tickles my nose, and begs me to taste her love.

Tank 7 is a full flavored saison. I taste apples, pineapple, pepper, herbs, spice, straw, and a faint hint of banana.

It has a medium body that coats my mouth nicely. Its carbonation is ample, but softly scrubs my tongue.

Tank 7 is a world class Saison!!!

This is a stunningly gorgeous beer. It pours a nearly clear, with just the slightest amount of haze, golden, glowing yellow with a huge, incredibly persistent near-white head that eventually leaves messy spiderwebs of cling to the glass. A gorgeous saison.

A typically nice, classic saison aroma: yeast, citrus (lemon), grass and hay, a tiny bit of pepper, and (atypically) some banana notes.

The flavor has held up incredibly well, as I probably stuck this in the refrigerator about a year ago and completely forgot about it. Incredibly easy drinking flavors of mild yeast and lemon, a bit of pepper and hay, and a little bit of mild banana notes.

The alcohol is non-existent in this beer's mouthfeel. Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation.

A great American example of the style. Will most certainly drink again.
