2.81/5  rDev -20.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

Look: One finger head dissipates quickly. No lacing. Opaque, bright yellow. No visible carbonation. Little bit of floaty sediment.

Smell: Bready malts up front. Slightly citrus. Very slight, almost Belgian-like yeast.

Taste: Bready malts up front again. Lemongrassy citrus is crisp and refreshing. slight pepper. No bitterness.

Feel: Medium bodied. Light carbonation. Slightly Dry.

Overall: It does the trick. There are much better Wheat's on the market. I certainly wouldn't turn one away but will probably not seek this one out again.

Pros: nice color, easy drinker. Cons: bland, hardly any taste and nothing too memorable. Disappointed.

Bottle. Another very average wheat beer. Some citrus and a touch of banana. Aroma of smelly feet. Fairly smooth, yet uninspiring. Meh...

Highly drinkable and sessionable. Forget the days of buying BMC, and buy this beer instead. If you're looking for a beer that you can drink a lot of but still don't want to sacrifice flavor, this one is for you. Kudos, Boulevard Brewing Co.

Bright golden in body with white head that fades quickly. Aroma of wheat, lemon, light vanilla, some light fruit. Tastes of wheat, vanilla, light grain, honey cereal, a little bit of fruit ester and a sprinkle of hops towards the finish. Light bodied with medium carbonation.

This wheat beer smells of straw and wheat and of lemon and orange. It tastes the same with a little doughiness from the yeast. It pours a hazy straw color with a huge white head.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 5/9/2015. Pours hazy/cloudy bright golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness and slight bready tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/yeast/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.4%. Overall this is a very good pale wheat ale style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. First sip was unimpressive but as it warmed a bit the flavor blossomed. The mouthfeel could be a bit thicker, but all things considered I may consider a second because the ABV is very user friendly at 4.4%.

Best wheat ever. Lightly tart banana citrus smooth. Love it really cold. Refreshing. Beautiful color and head. Winner.

The people at Boulevard are cocksuckers. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a claret glass. Bottle good until 5/22/15 so it is quite fresh. Included in a variety 12 pack with the Red IPA and Blonde Ale tasting room offerings.

Look: Cloudy and hazy light gold in color with a nice and fluffy white head. The lacing is thin yet consistent. It looks right on for the style.

Smell: Mild banana, phenolic compounds, white pepper, floral hops, and a hint of black tea. This aroma is delicate yet complex.

Taste: Yeasty tartness with a mild wheaty flavor. It has a smooth mellow flavor almost like the aftertaste of cornflakes.

Feel: Quite smooth but quickly diminishing to a very crisp bite of carbonation that actually reflects the tartness of the taste with good timing.

Overall: This is likely the best example of the style that I have had, and considering by definition these beers are somewhat weak (this one sporting only 4.4%abv) it is very good overall. I would prefer this one on tap.

This is a lemony beer that drinks great on the disc golf course.

3/11/15 (Draft The Laughing Man Washington DC) - Golden misty pour, thin white head, minimal carbonation. Light taste and texture, wheat grassy scent and taste.

Light and refreshing wheat beer. Very drinkable. I could see having a few of these on a hot summer day.

Pleasantly surprised. The hint of lemon adds a nice touch to this well-balanced sweet beer. Colors vary from a yellow wheat to a brownish yellow throughout the beer. Perfect for a nice evening outdoors in KC, MO. Hoping it comes to the East Coast.

12oz bottle best by 4/20/15 poured into a pint glass
A: Light yellow with plenty of carbonation and a one-finger head that settles fairly quickly
S: Lots of wheat, some bread, spice, yeast grass and green apple
T: Mostly wheat/bread, a bit of yeast/spice but not as much complexity as the nose
M: Light-bodied, a bit bready but also some spice and a decent length finish
O: Solid example of the style. The nose is the best part; the rest is good just not quite as complex. Sill recommended to try

I think it's funny how this site has changed it's rating system like 4 or 5 times in the last year. Anyways, this beer is solid. Wouldn't expect anything less from this great brewery
