BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States
boulevard.com

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.

This is my favorite beer in the country, and I travel for a living. Other competitors would be a few "Big Eddie" recipes, Kentucky Ale, and on a hot summer day, or a ball game, Sunlight Cream Ale from Sun King Brewery. Tank 7 is NOT your typical over-hopped fad beer. Don't let the light color lull you into a false sense of security though. It's a very balanced, but powerful brew. Enjoy!

Strong beer with nice balance between bitterness (strong happiness) and smoothness. The first thing that hit me when I opened the bottle was a fruity (mango) scent which persists throughout drinking it. Pours out a cloud, golden (like a cornfield) color with thick lace. If strong beer is your 'thang' go for it.

12oz bottle, date stamp of L032017 1151 D. Best before 15 Dec 2017. Served in a tulip glass.

Appearance: Slow pour gave a mostly clear golden yellow with nice streams of bubbles coming up through the glass. Thick pillowy head with lots of lacing noted. Great looking beer.

Smell: Citrus, leafy, peaches. Very nice.

Taste: Cracker like malt with lots of citrus flavor and some hints of berry. Herbal bitterness with just a hint of noble hops to it.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, dry finish with some stickiness on the teeth.

Overall / Drinkability: Refreshing and a good slow sipping and savoring beer. I think this would pair really well with food. Fits the European style for a Saison quite well. Very good and I'll have to pick up again. I wonder how this beer would change with if some of the yeast sediment did make it out of the bottle during the pour, but, I think this one is just right with the slow pour.

Love this stuff. Really glad my local grocery store stocks it. Introduced me to Saisons. Try all kinds but keep Tank 7 as my go to.

Smell is hops mostly, also fruit is detected. Taste is mostly hops, but not spicy or overly citrus either. Finishes very clean, is medium carbonated, and has a light feel overall. Beer is refreshing, and very sessionable.

This is my 1st beer of the Saison/Farmhouse variety, and I enjoyed it. Not a mind-blowing tasting beer, but it is good and will seek out other Saison beers in the future.

Golden body with nice white head. Fruity & grainy aroma. Somewhat sweet, apricot & pine dominate the flavor with hints of yeast & grain at the finish. Plenty of carbonation.

Beer pours a hazy yellow with a huge head and lacing all the way through. The smell is hops and grass. The flavor is lemon and hops but not overpowering like a lot of hop forward beers. It grows on you as you drink it. A very good beer.
