BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

It's not surprising I would give my favorite beer a perfect score, but let me explain why. Tank 7 is wonderful, it has the bitter notes that remind you of an IPA, but it is finished off with a sweet symphony of brilliance that only a farmhouse ale such as this can provide. The color has a dark amber hue, the smell is phenomenal, and the taste and mouth feel make you long for more. This is by no means a light beer, but if you are a fan of flavor and aren't afraid of a beer that has a bitter bite to it, this is the one to go for.

This has become my go to beer for all seasons. Complex nose and flavors never disappoint. I love the interplay of hops and yeast. The alcohol is well hidden as smooths things out nicely/great mouth feel. Some batches are foamier than others.

12oz bottle purchased at a place and price that I've forgotten.

Whoa! Big, foamy beast! Honey colored, and rather hazy. Big, creamy white head, that left lots of lace.

Big, spicy nose. Also a little grassy and herbal.

Pretty much tastes as advertised. It is a little more herbal and sneaky bitter than most Saisons of my acquaintance but it works well. High alcohol content is well hidden.

Fairly light bodied, with that somewhat effervescent mouthfeel so many American breweries fail to capture when they try Belgian styles.

I really like this beer. While the herbal, grassy, tart elements verge on witbier territory, it's very drinkable stuff. I would definitely drink this again.

Nice complex taste for a mid-low IBU beer. The combination of citrus & spice gives a very nice zing. The finish lasts long enough to complement a meal. This is supposed to be paired with pork or chicken, but I found it to pair nicely with a blue-cheese-avocado-bacon-burger.

Wonderful see through and light golden with a decent white head. Nose is yeasty and has slight pepper or spice. Nice flavor on this beer. You got the yeastiness and some slight clove. Good carbonation and a light feel. Good. I like this one. Holy smokes, I didn’t know this was so high in ABV.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy light golden color with a frothy white head that lasts and leaves good lacing. Aroma has Belgian yeast, banana, apricot, and spices. Taste is initially sweet and fruity before the earthy malts and yeast kick in. Finish is long and bitter, with citrus hops.
