A - Hazy apricot with a decent sized, foamy, white head. Pretty good retention with a thin layer of lace left.
S - Tart apple, pear and orchard fruit are quite strong. A good level of spiciness as well. Touches of candi sugar and a hint of Belgian yeast. Sweet and spicy aromas mix, with the spiced aspect winning out.
T - Like the nose, a strong spicy flavor with clove, white pepper, and a touch of orange rind. Tart golden fruit also makes up a large portion of the flavor. Background of sweet candi sugar and a slight fruity sweetness. Hints of yeast. Alcohol is definitely present, but not overly strong.
M - Medium body and carbonation. A little too sticky/syrupy for my liking.
D - With the strong spice, slight alcohol, and syrupy body this isn't overly drinkable and one that I took my time with. That said I wouldn't mind having one a different day.
Notes: Not entirely sure what to think of this. The flavors were nice, but then I thought they got to be a little overwhelming. Strong on the spices but a slight sweetness in the background.

This is probably the best beer Boulevard makes. Their Belgian born brew master brings the right amount of tradition to the sometimes overly innovative American brew culture.
Appearance- Poured into a tulip glass with a stark white head, the beer is straw colored with a slight orange hue. Overall a gorgeous beer.
Smell- Bright citrus fruit notes. Mild smell of hay. Alcohol is present.
Taste- Alcohol is on the front. Fairly sweet with mild grapefruit notes. Apple notes and mild floral aftertaste.
Mouthfeel- Very carbonated. A little dry. Has a mild acidity.
This is my go-to pizza beer. It tastes incredible with pizza.
