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.

This beer has great aroma of citrus, piney hops, yeast funk---love it! Anything with these attributes shows a great craft towards old-world style. And the best part, it is available year round at reasonable 4pk prices instead of uneconomical "bombers".

I'm addicted to this beer right now. I have been working myself out of an IPA rut and this beer is a great step away.

A fantastic American version of a proper classic European Farmhouse Ale.

Appearance: Golden straw color with a tight white lacing and bubbly head.

Nose: Pepper, lemon, dry cracker/bread, crisp apple skins.

Taste: Incredible depth and balance to this beer. It does not fizzle out like many American attempts at this style. This is a full-bodied, crisp and refreshing example of one of my favorite beers of all time and definitely a world class example of the style. Boulevard has impressed me with their consistency and portfolio as a whole.
