I've had this both on tap and in bottle, and as one would expect, I liked the draft version better. Extremely drinkable and pretty nice mouthfeel. A bit mild in flavors, not a lot of banana, but still reasonably enjoyable. Comes up a bit short from Boulevard's other offerings.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a SA Perfect Pint. Dated best by 8/10/14. Appears a hazy golden color with one finger of white, bubbly head. The head dissipates quickly to a white ring around the glass.
The nose is slightly sweet from the wheat, along with nice citrus note. That is more muted, but guessing it is a touch more present if it was more fresh. The taste is very refreshing, with the wheat and citrus coming through nicely. There is also a touch of tropical fruit, which fits in very well here. The finish is slightly bitter, but is not overpowering.
The mouthfeel is medium-light, with a good amount of carbonation. The finish is slightly sticky. Overall, this is a very refreshing beer. The light feel, tropical and citrus notes, and higher levels of carbonation keep you going back for more.

Pours a very golden straw color with some foamy white head. Smell is pretty sweet, with a lot of wheat and malt aroma and a touch of hops. Taste is almost all wheat beer. Not bad at all, but not really any hop flavor. 3 or 4 years ago I would have absolutely loved this beer. It is just missing that kick that Sumpin' Sumpin' and Gumballhead have. Don't get me wrong. Still a very good beer and I will drink the 6 I have happily. However, if you are looking for a true "hoppy wheat" try one of the others. If you are looking for something more balanced, or even tipping the scale the other way, I would recommend this for sure.
