3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a large fizzy white head that left a bit of sticky lace. The nose is crazy hoppy for a Saison, but I must say, I do like the hell out of it. Nice citrusy grapefruity hops grab the attention right away, Some nice pale malt and light yeastiness as well. The flavor is pretty hop forward, but they work really well with the yeastiness and the pale malt. Maybe not a typical Saison, but at least they messed with hops and not a bunch of spices. Nice lingering tropical fruit like note on the finish with minimal bitterness. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering hoppy finish. Really nice beer.

Pours hazy golden, full off-white head. Nice aroma with citrus fruit and yeasty earthy aromas. Medium sweet taste, a little tart. Medium-light body, above average carbonation, dry and spice finish. Not usually a big saison guy as they are so hit or miss for me, but this one is solid.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy gold beer with a large creamy white head of foam that looks like bubble bath suds. Nose of slightly sour yeast with lemon, grains of paradise, and new mown grass. Wow, the flavor is both strong and subtle, if that even makes sense. It has pronounced citrus notes, not quite grapefruit, but certainly more lively than orange (pomelo?), which is then fortified with a dose of spice. Yet, despite all the flavors, it is not overwhelming and incredibly easy to sip. All backed by a bracing carbonation, this is a solid beer and one that you could drink all night and into the next.

Sample from bottle at the Cask Norway stand at Nærbø, Ølfestivalen 2013. Muddy yellow golden body with a white film leaving good lacing on the glass. Spicy, citrussy nose. Sweet, spicy, light acidic and light bitter flavors. Medium bodied and smooth. An overall refreshing feeling and pleasant experience.

4 pack best before May of 2014 purchased at the ostensibly crummy discount liquor store down the street from me. This is my second foray into Tank 7 and I am equally as pleased with it as the first taste I had. The appearance of the beer is hazy bright yellow with a tall white head. Aroma is tantilizing. It’s spicy, hoppy, peppery, citrusy, funky, dry. Great bouquet on it. The flavor is clean and complex. There are plenty of esters here, but it’s not too much. Loads of bright citrus notes combine with a peppery flavor and everything from flowers to cheese in between. The alcohol is perfectly hidden. Fantastic beer!
