COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Most breweries have at least one piece of equipment thats just a bit persnickity. Here at Boulevard its fermenter number seven, the black sheep of our cellar family. Ironically, when our brewers were developing 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 flavorful surge of fruity aromatics and hoppy, grapefruit notes (Amarillo hops), this complex, straw-colored ale finishes long, dry and spicy.

Lukaduke (3045) - Gray, Maine, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Pours a nice orangey golden color with a pillowy thick white foam that rocks hard ! The nose is full of fieldgrass, hay some mellow lemongrass, citrus and light peppery spice. The palate follows with a light refreshing body but a ton of flavor. Great dusty hay, grass, floral honey, dandelion and a brightness of fruit well integrated into the beer. Beautiful rustic finish, dry peppery and a nice hint of bitterness ! Great Beer !

berlinoise2go (688) - NORWAY - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Oslo. Utterly good-looking with a huge white sticky head, slowly reducing to a foam island with fluffy lacing covering the glass. Slightly hazy, metallic golden/orange colour. Fruity aroma with grapefruit, mango, orange, lemon, yeast, sweet dough. Medium body, soft carbonation. Taste is rich, bitter-sweet, juicy and yeasty with a slightly tongue-drying finish with lemon zest associations

Uklar gul, ganske hyt skum. Aromaen er sitrus og grapefrukt, samt gjr og humle. Smaken er frisk! Mye grapefrukt, men litt trr. Medium konsistens.

The Tank 7 farmhouse ale fram Boulevard is a saison, or farmehouse ale, depending on where you come from i guess. Either way, the definition of a saison suits this beer. When pouring it has a champagne like head, light and white. This beer should be served at a slightly higher temprature than you would the normal lager beers. This allows the fruity flavors to come forward. There is also a slight hop aroma to this beer, and served cool, it is easier to notice. The main aroma are complex, some fruits and bananas, but also a spicy note. The taste is dry, you get some of the fruitiness. The body is very light. Easy to dring despite being 8.5 % ABV.

Nice white head and yellow color. Citrus and floral nose. Good carbonation. Sweet balanced crisp and clean taste. Like it best in summer but good anytime. Great local brew!

UPDATED: APR 8, 2015 Had on tap at West First. Just not getting past the Belgian yeast thing lately Plus it is too cold for this beer right now. Pours like a really pale, pale ale with a decent head. Really citrusy (good) and decent hop balance (good) but has that belgian spice thing going on. Just not for me. But good for the style. 4/8/2015 Great saison even if there is nothing subtle about it. Pours a nice hazy golden with a decent white head and legs. Super farmhouse-y- earth and a bit of funk. Dry and grassy in the finish. Bit one note, but overall it works.
