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.

Light amber color. Nice head. Weak on the flavor and nose for me, may be is the style. This is my first experience with a farmhouse ale, may be not for me.

I don't have a lot of other saisons or farmhouse ales to compare Tank 7 to, but it is a wonderful beer. The flavor is a little unusual to my palate in some respects, but it's not a weird or challenging flavor that takes work to get used to. It's slightly dry, slightly tart, not very hoppy, with citrusy flavors of lemon and grapefruit. Mouthfeel very effervescent. It's fairly high in alcohol content so it's a good one to sip and savor.

The grapefruit taste and hops blend perfectly together. This is an outstanding farmhouse ale.
