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.

Great, balanced beer, just not my thing. Too much like a white or Belgian for my taste. Many people's favorite and understandably, but personally not a hit for me.

10/18...pours bright gold with 1/4 inch foam. Gritty funky nose. Some bubblegum too. Fun bitter. Chalky smooth mouthfeel but punchy carbonation. Some citrus underneath. Sneaky boozy. Very good.

duvel glass. Best by 01.03.16. Consumed 10.28.15. Smokestack series.

A: Dense, bright orange has a light glow from background lighting. A huge two finger dull eggshell white foamy capping is very lengthy in retention. High coverage rate, thick beefy rings of lace.

S: Fresh lemon flowers and oranges with some banana are the first impressions on the nose. Sugary straw and wheat malts, with a bit of tart lemon-orange candy. Nice scent, nice yeastiness.

T: Flavor was lemony-orange, wheaty, sugary sweetness of fruit, peaches with a light tartness of lemon to balance things out Hints of apricot, fresh juicy grapefruit pulp, tang of lightly dry sourness and a slight pepper-pear finish.

M: Crisp mouthful, nice wheat palate, creamy feel, medium bodied, finishes dry.

O: Great try, yeasty, spicy, tangy fresh fruit. Abv of 8.5% is very well concealed, Easy A, outstanding beer, very good.
