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.

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.

Fruity, saisony, hoppy, one of the best modern takes on a classic I could drink this any time of the year.

BBD 4/22/15. Pours a semi-hazy gold with a slight amber hue. World Class massive head, lacing and retention.

Outstanding nose of citrus (lemon), biscuit and associated sweetness, hints of clove and pepper spiciness, classic Belgian yeast and just a touch of funk (which becomes more pronounced as it warms).

Medium bodied with a smooth texture. As it warms, creamy characteristics also emerge. Well carbonated with nice amounts of effervescence from the onset. At room temperature, the body is heavy medium and rather creamy.

The outstanding flavor profile is crisp and intense, extremely complex and well balanced. It begins with a burst of blended flavors that slowly separate into tart lemon, notes of pepper and clove (classic Belgian flavors) that flow into the other classic component, banana. The middle is a slight funk over a rich biscuit sweetness with distinct cracker notes.

The finish is quite crisp, a bit dry, and leaves you with a lemon tartness and flavor over an ever so subtle funk.
