Review: Boulevard Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale

Boulevard Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale
8.0% ABV
Boulevard Brewing Co., Kansas City, MO
12 oz bottle
Served in Dogfish Head Signature Glass
Reviewed on 8/22/12 

This ale pours a hazy golden color with a thick bubbly white head.  Moderate carbonation evident.  Great lacing.

Smell consists of hops, flowers, slight banana, citrus particularly grapefruit, and biscuit.

Taste has citrus, hops, banana, biscuit, bread, spice, grapefruit, malt, slight smokiness.

Mouthfeel is earthy with well balanced flavors, dry, some bitterness.

Overall, this is a solid tasting farmhouse ale with a good presentation in the glass and a good variety of well balanced flavors.  Somewhat reminiscent of La Fin du Monde, but deeper and with more floral notes.  Good dryness and bitterness.  Quite drinkable. 

My score: 95
