David & I have recently been interested in trying more saison beers. We’ve tried so many IPA’s & Double IPA’s, that it feels time to move on a bit and broaden our horizon’s. Last brew review I tried Victory’s Helios, which we were both fans of. David even bought it again last week. While he was picking out a beer at Whole Foods, the guy working recommended Tank 7 to him. When I got home that night, David told me there was a present in the fridge. I was happy to find Tank 7, since Tiff had recommended it in a previous brew review.
This beer is amazing! David and I think it’s almost magical. It is soooo good. The bottle was gone so fast between the two of us, and we were both sad to see it gone. At $10 a bottle, it’s probably not something we’ll buy all the time, but it’ll definitely be our new celebration beer. I really think that even if you think you’re not a fan of saison’s, that you’ll find this beer to be excellent. It’s really not too sour at all. It’s just so smooth and easy to drink. It’s almost a dangerous beer because there isn’t any hint of alcohol in it (a little when it warms up).
