Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a light straw amber with a half finger white head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of light sweet malt with a hint of biscuit, grape juice, slight apple juice. Flavor is mild malt, wheat, white grapes, finishing with a slight tartness and mild grassy hops. Odd grapey aftertaste. Light bodied with active carbonation. Tastes more like a light white wine to start, but finishes as a slightly tart pilsner-like light ale. As a lover of malt more than wine, the additional flavors are interesting, but nothing I would actively seek out. As usual, Boulevard did a nice job on this and for a light blond ale with grape juice added, it's pretty good. I'll be moving on, however.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Bottle says best by 01/30/15.

Appearance: Pours a bright and fairly hazy straw golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big three finger white head that fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.

Smell: A fruity and bready malt forward aroma with big hints of white grapes. Pale malt with hints of grains, straw, biscuit, cracker, and yeast. Big scent of white grapes giving a white wine like aroma. Also some fruit hints of pear, green apples, and lemon zest. Some sweet hints of sugar as well. An interesting aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a fruity and fairly bready malt and juice driven taste with big notes of white grapes. Sweet pale malt with notes of straw, cracker, grains, and biscuit. Big taste of sweet and tart white grapes with a wine like presence. Other fruit notes include green apples, pear, and lemon. Some light notes of sugar as well. A pretty decent taste.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a high level of carbonation. Crisp and pretty spritzy and smooth.

Overall: A decent twist on a Blonde Ale. Light but the added grape juice adds a nice kick to the Blonde notes.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a tiny head that reduced to nothing. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Chardonnay grapes, apple, and pilsner malts.

Taste: Grape flavor overpowers any other flavors. At 4.2% there really couldn't be much else going on for flavor. Some wheat and bitter notes too.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing, light to medium carbonation, and pretty simple.

Overall: Is it chardonnay or beer. Hard to decide, but both would be better alone.

Served in a tumbler.

Let's see Boulevard's take on the whole "we put wine grapes/juice/must/whatever into our beer" thing. This stuff pours a clear sunrise brass topped by a finger or so of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises white wine grapes (some kind of chardonnay or sauvignon blanc or something) and a touch of rather light sweet biscuit. The taste brings in more of the same, the wine character dominating any potential challengers. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a thickly fluid feel. Overall, a nice beer, but I would have preferred some wine/beer interplay, rather than just a beer flavored heavily with wine grapes (especially considering the name), but it's not bad.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Nonic Pint.

Appearance: Very light yellow, almost fluorescent, with rapidly diminishing head, leaving little behind.

Smell: Two day old Sauvignon Blanc. It's an okay smell but worrisome.

Taste: Tastes like a cross between a bland Blonde Ale and bad white wine. Lingering, horrible aftertaste.

Feel: Moderate carbonation but leaves a flat impression. Bad sweet finish.

Overall: This is the worst beer I have had in a while.

12oz bottle, best before 1.30.2015, poured into a Boulevard Smokestack tulip.

The beer pours a super clear, crisp, golden color, hues of straw and lemon with plenty of bubbles rising to the top of the glass, with a thick, taut finger of soapy, white head that has nice retention and leaves a few spots of soapy lace. The aroma is soft, mild pale malt, white grape, pear, light lemon, lightly vinous, lightly tart and acidic. The flavors are nice, pale malt, soft and smooth, not skuzzy or bitter at all with a nice helping of white grape, vinous and mildly earthy, light pear and apple flavors, very reminiscent of white wine, but the malt backbone is a very nice twist. The beer feels good, higher carbonation, but much thicker and substantial than I expected, soft around the edges, much like a wine would be, delicate comes to mind, but not overly so, and the finish is really easy.

Verdict: A very refreshing beer from Boulevard, and one I found myself enjoying more and more as it warmed up. The wine-like aspects are a nice twist that bring out some interesting complexity, a successful experiment.

3.8/5  rDev +15.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: 1/3 inch head, high carbonation, straw yellow in color, clear

Smell: hay, pilsner malt, and white grape juice

Taste: White grape juice start with a malty pilsner like middle and then a white wine finish. The grapes seem sugary sweet at the beginning but definitely take on a more wine like taste at the end.

Mouthfeel: sweet with slight bitterness, light body, high carbonation

Overall: Really interesting. This drinks like a pilsner or light lager mixed with a white wine. Almost has elements of a dry reisling. A nice summer beer. I could have several of these.
