Most breweries have at least one piece of equipment that's just a bit persnickity. Here at Boulevard we have fermenter number seven, the black sheep of our cellar family. Ironically, when our brewers were experimenting with variations on a traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale, the perfect combination of elements came together in that very vessel. You could call it fate, but they called it Tank 7, and so it is. Beginning with a big surge of fruity aromatics and grapefruit-hoppy notes, the flavor of this complex, straw-colored ale tapers off to a peppery, dry finish.
Bold and intense, this brew was named for the brewery's notoriously finicky fermenter #7, a tank they affectionately dubbed "the black sheep of our cellar family." So naturally it had to be in that vessel that this wild brew would come together, with a sweet clementine and pink grapefruit citrus core kicked up with notes of crushed white florals and whole peppercorns. It's creamy but clean and refreshing, finishing dry, with a soft hoppy bitterness.
