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.

A - A standard pour yields four plus fingers worth of mammoth delicate uniform fluffy cloud like frothy goodness that turn rockier as it begins to settle a bit... Super star retention... The color is a fairly pale golden straw that shows some light amber hes when back lit... A good bit of carbonation with a rapid cyclone in the center of the glass and some moderate paced random strays though out elsewhere... Gobs upon gobs of lacing cling to the sides of the glass... Outstanding...

S - A subtle but enticing aroma... White pepper... Lemon zest... Hay and grassy notes... A bit of funkiness... Some additional light spice notes...

T - Belgian yeast... Lemon zest... A bit of candied sugar lingers beneath the surface and adds outstanding depth and complexity... The spice notes from the nose are present but are dialed down several notches... White pepper... Some sage and parsley... Stellar...

M - The never receding whipped frothy goodness is the first to great the lips in a very delicate fashion... Light bodied... Ultra lush... Ultra smooth... Just a bit of lively carbonation that adds to the experience... World class...

D - Drinkability is off the charts... I hate IVs, but I'd take an IV of this in a heartbeat... World class in most facets... I can't say enough good things about this brew and will load up on it every chance that I get... I will go further then recommended and state that this is a brew that all BAs should experience at least once... This beer rocked my world and you should give it a chance to rock yours...
