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.

Bright dark straw color with moderate activity. Deep hazy with the yeast pour. Thick foamy light beige 2-3 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with strong legs and good swirl reaction. Flavors of sweet grains like barley and wheat, lemon, orange, grapefruits, wild yeast, and floral hops. Slick and smooth medium body with crispy carbonation. Medium to strong strength finish, slightly tropical and clovey with dry hops and a balanced barnyard effect. Good freshness but slightly boozy yet understandable for the ABV. Nice balance and intensity, good complexity. Overall high quality craft.

Having a 12oz in a snifter that was gifted to me. Rich amber color with a bit of haze and a creamy finger head. Smells of citrus rind, banana peel, menthol, yeast, clove, and spice. Has a medium bodied feel along with a creamy texture. Flavors of honey, bitter citrus rind, banana, yeast, clove, pepper, and some of the menthol as you exhale. First farmhouse ale for me and now a fan!

This has to be one of my all time favorite beers. Anytime I see it I have to get at least a glass of it. It is a well balanced farmhouse ale. It is just funky enough, just sour enough, just malty enough. Nothing over the top. Just easy drinking with great nose and flavor.

Tank 7 is a nice way to get people into farmhouse ales. It's not too funky, has a hoppy flavor which will help acclimatize those who have not yet ventured past IPAs, and has a pleasant dry grapefruit taste.

Light amber color. Nice head. Weak on the flavor and nose for me, may be is the style. This is my first experience with a farmhouse ale, may be not for me.
Had a second bottle, much better
