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.

Massive fluffy head with loads of lace. Smell and flavors are huge and fruity with yeasty esters. Noticeable hop flavor and bitterness. Good complexity. Feel is beautiful like a belgian style beer should be. A top notch beer for the style. An American made saison that stands up to the ones made in Belgium.

Golden color with good amount of bubbles. Semi fruity smell. Taste has some banana to it. Overall a good beer. Reminds me of Drunk Monk by 3Floyds.
