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.

Fatehunter (2410) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Poured out of bottle into a wide flute beer glass. Lots of bubbles on the initial pour, quickly dissipating head with just the edge of the glass graced by the lace. Bright orange color, opaque. Smell: Floral hops and citrus.. mostly grapefruit. Pleasant and mellow. Taste: No real flavors coming through, though still very nice... maybe a little orange. The bitterness coming into play at the end, which is good. Soft texture, not quite creamy though. While not a powerhouse, it is very nice to drink. For me it fits both a summer and winter drink. Its simple taste makes it refreshing for hot days, but the softness also makes it appealing to a cold night in front of the fireplace.

Straw hazy with thick, fizzy, lasting white head. Aromas of wheat, lime, coriander, yeast esters, cloves, leaves. Taste is wheat, lime zest, coriander, cereal malts. Some spicey, peppery flavours towards the end. Semi-dry, lemony finish. Creamy and smooth with the alcohol content amazingly well hidden. Lively carbonation.
