On tap at Conrad's in Liberty. Had a million of these in a bottle too, just too lazy to review until now. This is the beer that put Boulevard on the map. Into a pint glass.

Appearance - Pours a super cloudy golden color, with plenty of sediment to be seen if you pour it out of a bottle (not in the tap version). Decent one finger head that sticks for a minute or two, mediocre lacing left on the glass. Always like the label and the steel bottles though.

Smell - Mostly wheats and breads. A slight fruity hint, a bit of malts. Pretty subdued.

Taste - Much like the nose, the breads and wheat dominate the taste. There is a slight fruit hint to it towards the back as well of a bit of honey, but nothing major. Pretty one-dimensional

Mouthfeel - Medium body and carbonation, kind of funky aftertaste. Almost a fruit or banana taste

Overall - A decent beer at best. There is 100 different beers of the style that are better. I haven't bought this beer in years, this one was part of a round not purchased by me. Probably won't buy it, but that doesn't necessarily mean its bad. Its a great transition beer for swill drinkers.

Pours a cloudy golden-yellow with a fluffy 2-finger white head, fading completely after about half the brew.

The nose is simple, delicate and fresh nose of doughy malt with whiffs of peach and banana and vague hints of clove.

Palate is light-med bodied and very crisp with a delicate wheat texture and a mild hop bitterness- the carbonation appearing to be still bigger, carrying more of the flavors which include banana and a lingering clove on the juicy finish.

Rarely do I ever seek out this sort of beer but this came in a sampler pack I helped to kill, and I was quite impressed with it. Very delicate but wonderfully quenching. A bit more flavor would have been nice, but I'd rather have this than an over-the-top banana bomb of a wheat brew.

Appearance is cloudy gold, and it should be it is an unfiltered wheat ale. Smell is very nicely hopped and has the right citus aromas. Mouthfeel is somewhat disappointing, lingers somewhat to long. Taste, this is a nice wheat that will compete with the more popular brands. Overall this is an ok beer one we will enjoy but not deploy often. Good with all types of bar food.
