Boulevard "Tank 7" (Smokestack Series)
Boulevard Brewing Company - Kansas City, Missouri USA
Farmhouse Ale (ABV 8.5%) (IBU 38)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 3.8/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a cloudy straw yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white pillowy head that diminished slowly, down to a medium cap of residue which lasted throughout and had excellent sheeting of lacing.

The aroma was of a light grain malt, floral and grassy hops and a funky barnyard Belgian yeast along with notes of banana, citrus (grapefruit), a hint of a peppery spice and a mild tartness.

The taste was mildly sweet with a smooth hoppiness which was present throughout, with the finish being a bit fruity and rather yeasty with a peppery citrus ending. The flavor long in duration following the swallow, with a slightly bitter citrus taste left behind.

Mouthfeel was just past light in body and dry in texture with a carbonation that was a bit beyond medium in intensity.

Overall this was a delicious tasting Farmhouse Ale, with a superb fruity hoppiness that just made me want another...
