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.

thellgren (910) - Helsinki, - JAN 26, 2013
0.75 l bottle from Arkadia Alko, Helsinki (Special Collection). Nice big white head, cloudy yellow colour. Quite mild taste with some fruits especially citrus. Also some grapefruit from the hops. Easy to drink despite the high content of alcohol. Does not go well with spicy food, but some fish sandwiches were fine with this.

From the tap. Good head with banana, citrus aroma. Belgium yeast esters in your face. From other reviews I expected a bit more citrus but for me Belgium yeast came at me harder. Refreshing!

mviljamaa (20) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Pours with good wheat beer like foam. Aroma is fresh and has citrus, gin, banana, strawberry and flowers. Color is nice wheat beer like golden. Taste is sour wheat beer like with banana, citrus, mint or toothpaste and "sharp" hops. Its a bit too sour/bitter to my taste. Its very refreshing though and tastes like a quality beer.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2017 Quel formidable travail sur le houblon nous est prsent par Boulevard Brewing Company au travers de cette Farmehouse Ale. Lutilisation intelligente dun quatuor Magnum, Bravo, Amarillo et Citra permet de prsenter cette Tank 7 une complexit aromatique des plus intressante sur des notes toutes en fracheur. Son quilibre, sans faute, avec une belle densit en bouche et un alcool juste la fait rentrer dans la liste des belles bires. En verre; sa fracheur sexprime dj : dune couleur jaune paille (EBC de 12) et pare dun lger voile, son effervescence, marque, lui confre une mousse blanche, crmeuse et gnreuse qui se stabilisera autour dun centimtre dpaisseur. Le nez est trs expressif et frais avec une prdominance de lorge, agrment de miel au thym, de notes herbaces et dun fond de mot de raisin. A la dgustation, lentre en matire annonce la couleur, avec une amertume fleurie et herbace (expression de lamarillo) contrebalance par un malt discret mais justement dos pour garder cette sensation de fracheur. La deuxime bouche se densifie quelque peu pour se porter vers les fruits jaunes mrs et notamment la banane (expression du magnum). La troisime bouche revient sur une amertume fleurie (lexpression de lamarillo redevenant prioritaire) avec une arrire bouche trs bien construite, riche, avec de nombreuses variations autour des fruits exotiques et de la pche (expression du citra sur une trs belle alliance avec le malt). Lensemble est trs harmonieux, les armes des diffrents houblons la fois se rpondant et salliant dans une composition exquise. Le sucre est bien dos et lampleur en bouche apprciable. Lalcool 8,5 % Abv, est admirable. Celui-ci porte sublimement les armes et permet une bonne longueur sur un superbe final enlev o lamertume, intense (malgr lEBU qui nest en fait que de 38), se veut de plus en plus prcise et fine sur des armes de rsineux (expression du bravo). Je suis tomb amoureux. Un vrai bouquet de Saint Valentin.

anstei (1687) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 12, 2017
Bottle. Pours lightly cloudy golden, high and stable foam. Aroma is saison yeast, spices, some grapefruit and farmhoues. Body is medium, lightly sweet, with a soft carbonation. Smooth. Soft bitterness towards the palate, which still shines with farmhouse and some hops. Dry. Good.

Bottle @ Uptown Records n Beer. Pours a straw yellow color with a finger of white foam. Aroma is light citrus and grassy aromas. Taste bittersweet, hop, yeast, herbs. Strong and dry in your mouth. At first I liked this beer more, but taste gets a bit harsh and unpleasant after a while.
