I’ve never had a bad beer from Boulevard Brewing Company of Kansas City, MO that wasn’t good.  Tank 7, a farmhouse ale, livers up to what I expect from Boulevard, and that’s a (better than) good beer.  Part of the Smokestack Series of bigger, bolder beers from Boulevard, Tank 7 is light gold with a slight haze and some fine suspended particles, floats a huge white head and displays energetic carbonation.  The tart, lemony bouquet hides a little spiciness in it.  Tank 7 is sweet, but bitter.  I guess that’s bittersweet, but definitely sweet.  It’s tangy, citric and substantially malty for a light gold saison.  And dig those doughy, yeasty notes in the exhale.  8% ABV doesn’t hurt it either.  I like Tank 7.

85/100 Saison
