Notes: 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.

Aroma of vaguely sweet aromatics. Carbonated, satisfyingly spicy mouthfeel. Taste of sweet florals, honey fruits, and a citrusy body, just as described.

Hazy. High bitterness, but still clean and bright. Classic beer flavor, reminded me of a more european style

Another excellent staple from an excellent brewery. Hippy, smooth, a little bitter and a little spicy. So much flavor.

Poured a semi-hazy golden straw color from a 12 oz., bottle (enjoy by 05 Jun 2023), into a standard pint glass with egg shell colored finger high head which receded after a few minutes and left a moderate amount of fine lacing. Bright spicy yeast & lemon aroma jump out with slightly subdued sweet & malty backbone present in the background. Taste is not overly spicy but can certainly distinguish the Belgian yeast esters and the Simcoe, Amarillo & Magnum hops. Clean, dry, peppery finish with good structure, medium to slightly syrupy in body. A favorite whenever I can find it.

Had on tap at the brewery.

On arrival a fine white 1 finger head was present that dissipated over a few minutes to a ring around the glass. The body is a nearly clear deep gold. Carbonation is light and fine.

Aroma is sweet, and yeasty. Plenty of esters and phenols here. Similar to a belgian blond, but the yeast character is almost sweeter. A touch of hops is present in the spicy yeast notes. Very nice.

Taste follows the aroma with the pleasant yeast notes coming through nicely. Quite sweet and malty with a banana and light clove followed by a medium hop bitterness that rounds things out and gets you ready for another sip.

Feel is big but smooth. A very nice sipper that seems quite versatile. Big enough for the dead of wi ter, but blond and crisp enough to be refreshing in summer.

Overall this was the best beer I had on tap here at boulevard. Very nice amd the yeast notes are spectacular.

Unique beer - Hoppy like a DIPA, looks like a hazy with a very nice head, but lighter like a farmhouse ale. Liked it a lot!

Bottle with a best by date of 14-Nov-2022. Pours a somewhat opaque amber-yellow color. Great aroma - yeasty and spicy, pours with a nice, fluffy white head. Taste explodes in the mouth - a bit of lemon, spices and a pleasant hint of yeast. This is an excellent beer - it hides the 8.5% abv pretty well and never feels hot. Taste lingers on the palate in a pleasant way and makes you want more. Excellent!

This is my first rating and I’m learning about beer as I go, but I felt compelled to talk about one of my favorites.

Brewed in Kansas City Missouri

Smell of banana with a medium sour aftertaste. Refreshing but also filling.

L - Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Color is a pale amber with a two and a half finger head. Decent lacing. Fluffy head like a Coke Float. Hazy, foggy. The fluffy head stays and stays.

S - Yeast front and center on the scent. Sweet and earthy. Some citrus or pear skin as well. Sour scents as well.

T - Taste follows scent. Yeast and sweetness. Like sourdough with sweet cream butter spread across it.

F - Medium to thick mouthfeel with some frothiness.

O - Overall this beer is a treat. Wonderful yeast flavors. I was introduced to Boulevard by a friend from Kansas City, and Tank 7 has been a favorite for years. It’s definitely in my regular rotation, and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a yeast beer.

16oz can with a best by date of 9-17-22. Opened 5-8-22.
Huge meringue like white head that crests over the rim and has amazing retention. Orange-gold, not opaque but close. Tons of visible carbonation. Thick lace. Apricot and lemon nose with some yeast character. Stone fruit, grassy hop bitterness and white pepper (?) spice. Drinkability is high - packs a punch at 8.5%. Medium body with high carbonation. Long, fruity and dry finish. Outstanding.

Look: hazy gold, nice white head, good lacing.

Smell: A little banana-y, definitely belgian-y.

Taste: the banana backs off, other eaters still present. Note of cloves. Some malty sweetness as you would expect, followed by a mild lemonish dryness that cleans the palate.

Feel: the fizz is just right, lightens the feel well.

Overall: it is, in fact, an American Saison. It brings in the base flavors of a Saison Dupont, but lightens them, with more emphasis on the hop/citrus.
