Boulevard Tank 7?

I have been loving Boulevard's Tank 7. Anyone know of a clone or similar recipe?

Thanks!

Re: Boulevard Tank 7?

I believe some of the flavor comes from a tank at Boulevard that kept producing some off tasting batches so it might be hard to get exact but I would be very interested in seeing a clone recipe if there is one out there.

Re: Boulevard Tank 7?

Here is the info from Boulevard.
They provide a lot of detail in here so I think it could be quite possible to make something very similar.

Tank 7 Farm House Ale
Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale
Availability: Year-round, Draught and both 750 mL and 4-Pack Bottles
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.
