12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy golden color. A large, foamy white head is formed with three fingers and a soft texture. It fades moderately quickly, and leaves spotty lacing down the glass.
S: There is a decent amount of grapefruit, orange, grass, and lemon notes that betrays a rock-solid hop profile. What I'm not quite so sure about is the faint phenolic touch I also pick up. It sadly detracts from an otherwise very good aroma.
T: The flavor reveals lush citrusy notes throughout, and even an initial grapefruit-esque juiciness. It finishes with light touches of grass and lemon, and the dodgy phenols I picked up in the nose is kept in control here. Really likable if a touch mild.
M: I like how lush and creamy this is, helping to keep carbonation in check - and making it a bit syrupy at times. Aside from me wanting a drier finish, this has a very nice feel and great drinkability.
O: The more I have from Boulevard, the more I grow to like them. When done right, this is a style I really enjoy, and this beer in particular is a success. I'd gladly make this a regular in my fridge.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker. Creamy white head, nice lacing. Sun gold, hazy straw yellow...visually pleasing.
A large hit of lemon on the nose followed by yeasty bread.
As with the smell the first sip...a bubbly carbonation of sour lemon. A bready, yeasty piece of honey toast in the middle...grassy, green, vegetal...A dry quick finish...bitter lemon butter, creamy and clean. The lemon lingers for quite awhile.
I like wheat beers and I like Hops...this is very good...maybe a little to much lemon and not enough hops...still, very good and very unique...enjoy.
