BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.

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.

Review taken from notes July 2014.

12 oz brown bottle complete with a Belgo feel and look to it in terms of shape. Label is pretty straight forward with an elegant design. A very nice label. Much how an American Belgian should come. Poured into a stemmed Belgian style tulip glass.

A - glowing bright yellow on the pour which turns more yellow golden In the light. A fluffy white head is massive and sits very nice throughout the experience. Lovely particles float about this farmhouse ale leaving a pretty yellow haze in the body.

S - the tank 7 yeast stood out up front with a big doughy bread aroma followed by an earthy character. Typical but splendid Saison whiffs fill the nose of banana, clove and Belgian spices, and bubble gum. The malt balance was very good with a grain like hay. Citrus hops feel the backend with fresh lemon and orange.

T - grain and hay to start with a second sip really highlighting the banana and clove found in the nose. Hop presence is citrusy lemon and orange bouncing off one another very well. A slight nutty character is found within the depths of the mild bitterness the hops provide. Finish intertwines banana, clove, Belgian spices, pepper, and citrus. Tank 7 's yeast is blended perfectly with the ape itself giving a solid American farmhouse experience.

M - medium bodied and refreshing. Big on the Belgian style, Tank 7 has a smooth velvety feel, laying it's flavors across very well. Alcohol is hidden and the yeast is tasty. Thin but smooth with a semi dry finish.

O - a solid offering of an American made farmhouse ale that offers a classic Belgian aroma and flavor with letting you explore the real creativity of Boulevard 's yeast. I'd drink this again. Definitely a good offering.

A: Pours a slightly cloudy golden yellow. The fluffy white head slowly died down. A fair amount of lacing.

S: Lemon and other citrus aromas dominate. Some spicy and hay scents.

T: The lemon and citrus flavors hit the tongue first and the peppery spiciness takes over. A very peppery and slightly bitter finish. I detect some hay and grassy flavors.

M: A lighter mouthfeel befitting the style and well carbonated.

O: A pleasant Saison. Some may be put off by the strong peppery finish but I found it quite satisfying. Not one of my favorite saisons, but still another quality offering from Boulevard.

Light and clear. Fruity and spicy saison. Peppery finish, lingers nicely. One of the best that I've had / what a saison should be.

A wonderful smelling beer. Spicy and yeasty fruity it's all in there.
Golden color with a slight hazy. A tall beige head formed on top and lasted along while because of the strong carbonation, pleasing to the eye.
The taste is dry and tart with some pale malts and yeast but starts out sweet then bitter good.
