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.

I've been drinking this one for years – it was my first Boulevard, quite possibly my first saison as well. Still can't believe I haven't graded it until this day. It is as good as it has ever been. I think it is an exceptional example of the American style of this beer.

This review is of a 12 ounce bottle from their Great Eight Pack. Best by 5/6/16.

Pours a cloudy gold, very thick bright white foamy head with strong lacing. Very active carbonation. Things were moving in the glass up until I finished it, but there was no actual sediment.

Total lemon funk on the smell, tart citrus up front on the taste. Slight sour notes underlying, mouth filling, quite satisfying taste.

Love this one, will always drink it when given the opportunity.

Pours a golden color with an orange hue. A steady frothy white lace retains throughout. The aroma is citric and peppery. The taste is lemony, peppery and semi dry in the finish. Medium bodied and refreshing. Overall, I thought that this was a solid and tasty saison.

I'm a fan on Tank 7, especially when it pours from a bottle. I've had it dozens of times on draft and I still prefer the bottle. More fizz, less boozy and fresher than a mountain stream in springtime. In short, this is one yummy, hazed out farmhouse brew.

Great in bottle and as good on tap a few months later. Great stuff, peppery, floral, hop-forward but balanced and not too bitter, very refreshing. A classic saison from Missouri!
