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.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a hint of orange. Has a full white head that lingers for a time.

Smell start out with a bit of citrus, reminds me of grapefruit. Also has some outdoors type of smells, like grass and hay. Pretty spot on for what I expect from the style.

Has a nice citrus dominated taste. There is grapefruit, lemon, and orange. This is balanced by a bit of hop bitterness at the finish, keeping the sweetness in check.

Very smooth and solid going down.

I've had this beer before, but never got around to reviewing it until now. This has become one of my favorite examples of this style. Has a lot of flavor, and tastes exactly like what I expected. This and Hennepin are my favorite examples of this style, if you like a good farmhouse ale, give this one a try, well worth it.
