The Smokestack Series Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale from Boulevard brewing Company in Kansas City, Missouri pours out a bright gold in color with some sediment and cloud and is topped with a voluminous snow white head that slowly reduces down to a fatly thick film with a nice collar. On the nose, yeast, banana, spice, earthy funk and a hint of citrus. In the mouth, flavors of peppery spice throughout peaking towards the end, lemony citrus, yeast, mellow funk and a touch of sweetness. Light bodied. Well carbonated. Splotchy lacing on the glass. Clean mouthfeel. Dry and slightly bitter on a long finish.
A nice Farmhouse Ale with good flavor. Stated but not overdone. Well crafted and very drinkable especially on a warm day. Recommended.
