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.

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.

Solid, though nothing stands out as a unique take on a saison.
