Time to make a complete switch from all those stouts! A couple of weeks ago, I had a day off and enjoyed this as my day drinking beer. I'm a big fan of farmhouse ales, and Boulevard Brewing Company's Tank 7 did not disappoint! Tank 7 is a Belgian-style farmhouse ale. Farmhouse/saison beers are always drier in taste for me, which I enjoy. It's a bit of a different take on the hops. This beer is brewed with three types of hops and corn flakes! I'm not sure those make much of a difference in flavor; however the hop flavor is evident. I would definitely order this beer if I found it on draft somewhere. I thoroughly enjoyed sipping on this brew.
While my pairing (or glassware) doesn't quite mesh with what Boulevard recommends, I drank with my left over Moo Shu tofu from one of our fav restaurants in Raleigh, Dave's Dumpling and Noodle Bar. The dry finish and hops paired well with the sweet & spicy of the Moo Shu.
(As always, this beer was purchased from Tasty Beverage Company in Raleigh, NC)
