This is the top seller for Boulevard and it's easy to see why.
Bottle poured into a wheat glass. Best by 8/2/12.
Served with a lemon wedge.

A- With an aggressive pour this beer pours a hazy light golden straw color, with some foamy white head that leaves some mild lacing on the glass.

S- Lemon. Lots of wheat, yeast, some banana and clove in the back.

T- Plenty of wheat and malt. Very low hop character coming through. Nice refreshing taste with the lemon wedge.

M- Medium body on this one. Carbonation is not overbearing.

O- A great start for people looking to get into craft beer. It's easily available on draft and bottle, a great session beer.

12 Ounce brown bottle poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Clear light yellow with a thin head on it that leaves a little lacing but not much. Being unfiltered I was a little surprised it was as clear as it was, I expected it to be cloudy.

Smell: Sweet smell, slight corn scent with a little fruit and earthiness.

Taste: Lacking in wheat flavor. It is slightly sweet and slightly with a little hint of bitterness. It doesn't have any of the nice wheat flavors I would expect. It is almost like a pale ale but with a little more sweetness.

Note: I did enjoy this beer but in expecting a wheat I was a little bit disappointed.

A- Pours bright, hazy yellow - like a hazy champagne. Small white head and medium carbonation when added to pint glass.

S- Very light malt. Sweet and flowery.

T- Sweet, even citrusy (lemon). Dry with slight bitterness.

M- Medium-bodied with dry character that persists in afterfeel.

O- Good, not great. Would certainly brab one at or brin some to a party, but might not buy for self.

Bottle with a BB date of 5/10/12

A-An aggressive pour into a pint glass gives a couple fingers of bubbly white head. Hazy pale yellow with lots of sediment.

S-Wheat dominates, a fair amount of fruity esters from the yeast. Maybe a hint of hops in there too.

T-Wheat is dominant, not much else in the taste department. There is more tartness in this than most wheats, a bit lemony.

M-Moderate carbonation, light body. Smooth with a quick finish. Really easy to drink.

D-Good for a long day.

O-Easy to drink wheat beer, light in flavor. More tart than most. Not my favorite of the wheats.

I had this wheat beer in a shaker pint.

Appearance- There is only a a slight head that is bone-white that fizzles to a slight ring. The body is an expected cloudy that is a bright marigold with regular columns of carbonation.

Smell- There is a huge whiff of wheat bread and a tangy scent that seems like lemon. I am not sure the flavors are complimentary. It is not off-putting at the very least.

Taste- There is really not much here. There is the impression of wheat in the finish and some more of the lemon flavor all over the palate. There really is not much more than that.

Mouth feel- The body is pretty light, not thin as it has decent creaminess. It does go down easy.

Overall- There is not much to this beer, and I cannot say I am either impressed or disappointed by how it tastes. You will not miss much if you skip this one.
