Love this beer but it's hard to come by in area, only two stores sell it, so when you buy it you have to stock up.

It's a very refreshing beer. I hope Boulevard continues to make it.

I picked up a can of Boulevard's Ginger-Lemon Radler for $1.69 at The Lager Mill. It's pretty hot today and I thought it would be a good time to try a new Radler, so let's see how it goes. 2016 Vintage. Poured from a 12oz can into imperial pint glass.

A- The can looks good, it's got a nice design and it's eye catching. It poured a hazy pale yellow color that took on more of a brighter yellow color similar to lemonade when held to the light with under a half a fingers worth of off white bubbly head that faded to nothing and it didn't really leave and lacing behind. This is an ok looking beer, it seems to be pretty standard looking for the style.

S- The aroma starts off with a lower amount of high sweetness with a sweet candied lemon aroma being the first to show up and it goes into more of a lemonade like aroma with the ginger being noticeable in the background and it had a little bit of ginger ale like aspect to it. Towards the end there's some more sweet malt like aromas with no other malty aroma showing up and it had a typical alcopop aroma. The aroma is ok, it's pretty standard for the style, but it's not very beer like.

T- The taste seems to be fairly similar to the aroma and it starts off with that same higher amount of sweetness with the lemonade flavors being the first to show up and it's just a little lighter than it was in the aroma and it's followed by the ginger which imparts that same ginger ale aspect that I got in the aroma and it's also a little lighter this time. Up next comes a slightly higher amount of medium tartness followed by some malt flavors with some grainy, pale malt and doughy malt flavors with some lingering tartness on the finish with a citrus and lemon like alcopop aftertaste. This is an ok tasting Radler, but to me that flavors to blend that well together.

M- Fairly smooth, a little refreshing, pretty crisp, not too acidic, on the thicker side of being light bodied with a lower amount of high carbonation. This beer has a pretty nice mouthfeel, it;s what I would expect from the style.

Overall I thought this was an ok beer and I thought it was pretty average for the style, nothing really stood out about it except for the things I didn't like and it felt like it was just a little bit of beer mixed with half lemonade and half ginger ale. This beer didn't have the best drinkability, one is more than enough for me. What I like the most about this beer is the mouthfeel, it's pretty nice and it works well with this beer. What I like the least about this beer is the way the flavors blend together, they just clash a little and it isn't a flavor that makes me want to come back for more. I don't think I would buy this beer again and I might turn one down. All in all I wasn't a big fan of this beer, it's ok for the style, but it wasn't something that I really enjoyed. It's one of my least favorite Boulevard beers and it's average at best for the style. Better luck next time guys, this one just wasn't for me.

Looks good, like a less cloudy witbier. Smells like citrus. Tasty ginger and lemon flavor. The body is very similar to a medium bodied brew. While a tasty drink, I'd probably stop after two.
