    Brewed year round by Boulevard Brewing Co. in Kansas City MO. as part of their Smokestack Series, Tank 7 is a Saison/Farmhouse Ale. It begins with big surge of fruity aromatics and grapefruit-hoppy notes tapering off to a peppery, dry finish.

    Why yes, I've Had That!!

    Part a legendary bomb from jdmitch and now a staple on my "to drink" list...Tank 7 is a fabulously satisfying and flavorful Ale. It has these fruity aromatics up front that just explode in your mouth (no homo) then mellow to that peppery finish. Unique in the beer world (at least to me) this thing has spices and flavors I still can't identify but find totally enjoyable! Give it a shot if you can find one and I'm sure it will at least make for a nice drink and maybe even earn a place in your fridge...

    I've had that! (If it wasn't obvious)

    And I have it on a regular basis (along with nearly everything Boulevard makes)

    Tank 7 has a special history. Boulevard had one tank (#7) that was always issue prone (some might say cursed), until Boulevard pulled off this brilliant farmhouse ale / saison. They affectionately named the ale Tank 7 in honor of breaking the curse ;)
