This beer is one of my favorites. It pours a hazy color with a two finger head. Thw smell is a pretty standard beer smell. It's got a great flavor while still being very drinkable. I would highly recommend this beer to anyone who is trying to transition from a BMc background into craft beer.

Had on tap at the Corner Slice in Greensboro over the weekend.Poured into a standard pint glass a hazy lemony yellow color with a thinner nicely formed white head.Aromas of faint toasted wheat and spice mainly,not much there really.Flavors are light but pretty refreshing with lemon and toasted creal-like flavors,again light but goes down easy.A pretty standard wheat ale but it's better than alot out there of the same ilk.

Appearance – This one poured a righteous cloudy orange in color with a nice, white head that stayed around long enough.

Smell – The light wheat and orange notes are held back quite a bit when cold. They opened up a tad more as the ale warmed, but generally this bouquet is reserved.

Taste – Well, I’m never quite sure what they’re shooting for with the PWA style, but this isn’t bad. The wheat is crisp if a bit musty and the big orange from the nose takes a step back at the taste. There’s a light candy sugariness throughout.

Mouthfeel – This is in between light and medium-bodied with some strong, effervescent carbonation and a modest pale dryness in the lingering finish.

Drinkability – As far as the style goes, this was one of the better offerings that I’ve tried.

12oz bottle pours hazy yellow in color.

I can hear the beer crackling in the glass. Upon smelling I get that it's lemony with sweet malty and musty notes. Not bad though it does fade quickly.

Smooth texture, zesty lemon toward the finish.

While it's not really full or complex, it makes for a good session or a transition beer for people who haven't had a lot of luck with ales.

Finally tapped a fresh keg of this at work so I thought I'd give it a second chance. What a difference fresh makes for this beer! It looks totally different. It is a warm gold with a fat soda-ish head that is slow to go but eventually does. Smells of light bubblegum and lighter banana. Taste is totally different from the bottle I sampled. It is not watery, though it is light and has more of light bubllegum and banana flavor I picked up in the nose. Any twang in the way of citrus or cloves is masked by wheat astringincy.

Mouthfeel is light and lively but theres a fizziness issue here that hurts both mouthfeel and drinkability.

12 oz bottle, dated 9/18/09? (hard to read probably a bit old). Pours a hazy golden yellow with a big rocky white head that goes to a thin film that laces the glass some.

The aroma is subdued - wheaty malts and lemon with a little yeast.

The flavor is wheaty bready malts and some lemon with a little spice and some earthy yeast in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to light bodied and kind of watery with very spritzy carbonation.

Overall, an OK wheat. Not much there, but it's not bad.

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date

LOOK: Cloudy yellow straw, slowly fading white head

SMELL: Floral, nutty yeast, faint spice, mild Asian pear, bready, clean

TASTE: Very smooth, refreshing crispness, slice of bread, citrus pith, dragon fruit, melon rind, nutty, yeasty, moderate hopping, mild bitterness, drying grainy finish

A high benchmark for the original version of this style, subtle hops so they are relying mostly on the malt backbone and the fermentation here. Boulevard nails the style.

12 oz bottle. Best by 09/10/05. Hazy straw. Tons of tiny bubbles rise to a nice layer of foam. Mostly grain in the nose. It tastes fine, I guess. Really nothing to get excited about. Has a wheaty/lemony thing going on. I do prefer this beer with a lemon wedge. Soft across the tonge. Subtle bitterness. Best beer to get at Royals games.

From a sampler pack, this bottle pours a hazy lemonade yellow body with a small vanilla head. Aroma has some lemony pepper notes, not much else. Light to light medium body with a bit too much carbonation. Taste has some lemony citrus and yeast. That's about it. Not much to this one. I suppose it would be a good thirst quencher but disappointing as a beer.
