3.8/5  rDev +17.3%
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.

2.23/5  rDev -31.2%
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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

Picked this up at Goebels in Wichita, BBD of 01/30/15

Pours just like champagne; light gold & effervescent. Stays effervescent throughout, a little bit of lacing & carbonation

S: Faint breadyness & white grapes

T: Faint breadyness & white grapes & little grassiness up front. More of the same as this warms, slight dryness as well. Finishes dry, prickly & with some white grape

MF: Light bodied, firm carbonation, some acidity & starts becoming slightly overgassed

Easy to drink, but this could've been executed so much better. I think Boulevard took a great idea & just dumbed it down too much. Expected way more

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada pint (best by 1/30/15)

A: Super clear faint white wine color. Nice foamy head that goes away pretty quick. Just a bit of lacing.

S: Fruity, grape must smell with that blonde ale smell behind it all.

T: Weird tasting. The blonde is marred by the grapes here instead of 'entwined' like it is called. Weird dryness that seems like it is fruity but actually really isn't.

M: Quite carbonated, but not very rough. More foamy with lots of bubbles.

O: Pancakes will be made out of this. I'm sorry, but that best by date is a joke. This thing is only going down hill.

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.

12 oz. bottle, with best by date of 01/30/2015 printed on the bottleneck. Acquired the six pack of this stuff from the local beer store. "Malt beverage brewed with grape juice".

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - Pours a pale golden yellow with two fingers of soft soapy white head and some active carbonation streaming topside. Leaves a little bit of fluffy lacing, but not much. Looks alright. 3.5

S - The smell is fairly neutral and uninteresting - musty, grainy, wheaty, yeasty, & grassy. A very vague earthy / musty white grape aroma is noticeable, but not dominant. 3

T - Taste follows the nose - musty, grainy, wheaty, lightly phenolic. There are some very subtle vinous wine-like notes in there, paired with the grain / malt. 3

M - The feel is crisp & clean, finishes dry. Medium bodied with good carbonation. 3.5

Overall, it was okay, but definitely not something I would want again. I can appreciate the idea, but the addition of grape juice doesn't do the blonde ale part of this beer any justice.

Boulevard Entwined Ale -----3/5.
