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.

Bottled 10-22-14. Poured into a tulip glass. Hazy golden yellow color, took about 10 minutes to pour a 12 oz bottle because of the great head of white fluffy billowing foam. Great retention and lacing. Aroma was a bit funky, piney and fruity. The taste had some lemony, peppery and spice notes, with just a tinge of malty sweetness. The mouthfeel was fairly light, somewhat dry, with crisp carbonation. This is one of my favorites of one of my favorite styles- just love this beer!

Lemony funky nose gives away some of what is to come next. A big earthy farmhouse ale that looks and tastes excellent. Lots of carbonation and an unfiltered view from the glass. There is a punchy brightness that makes this a perfect beer to accompany a meal, should you be so inclined. Hops hold up well amongst the bready elements.

While I prefer IPAs, this beer was quite good. Nice flavor and very drinkable

Great fluffy white head and lacing. Sweet aroma of pear, yeast roll, peppercorn and malt backbone. Tastes of peaches, lemon zest some spicy pepper notes and an great malt backbone. Carb level keeps the sips nice and interesting while providing a lush body.
