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.

Slightly hazy bright golden color with a huge thick head with live carbonation, good retention and leaving good laces.
Nice aroma with notes of peaches, passion fruit, herbaceous, orange citrusy, pear, pineapple foam and Saison yeast.
Flavor with notes of piney and herbal hops, grapefruit, lime, white pepper, lemongrass, soap, flowers, cloves, pineapple, wheat, lychees and candi sugar. Dry aftertaste with a good bitterness.
Light body with good carbonation. Alcohol of 8.5% is unbelievable well disguised.
Hoppy and complex Saison that successfully was able to marry different unobvious notes. Definitely worth trying.

Very unique. Opaque straw colored with good white head. Sweetness on the nose with citrus/grapefruit notes. Slight bitter finnish, but not unpleasant. This is an ale that I will definitely drink again!
