Enjoyed this beer on tap at Old Line Bistro in Greenbelt, MD out of an 8 oz pint glass.

A: Pours an extremely cloudy pale yellow hue with a minimal head that very quickly dissipates into a wispy lace.

S: Bready malt aroma with some citrus in the background.

T: Similar to the smell there is a bready malt flavor with hints of some citrus, pine, and honey in the background.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Not my favorite style – and probably the most cloudy unfiltered beer I ever drank.

"In time-honored brewing tradition, we've added a small amount of yeast to this beer just before packaging to produce a secondary fermentation in the bottle. The yeast, which settles naturally to the bottom of the bottle, encourages further maturation and contributes to the beer's complex flavor." Boulevard Brewing was recently distributed to Georgia and this is one of their most commonly available beers. Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat Beer is brewed in the American Pale Wheat Ale style. Best-by date on the bottle neck is 11/29/12.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a pint glass. Served north of 50º Fahrenheit.

(Appearace) Pours a fizzy white head that dissipates rapidly over a medium hazy, sediment-heavy pale yellow body. Carbonation is medium. Beer appears flat and the pulpy yeast in suspension may or may not be to everybody's liking. It completely lacks lacing or decent head quality, making for an overall disappointing appearance. 2.25

(Smell) Pale malts, faint musty wheat finish, faint low bitter hops. A mild yeasty citrusy fruit profile throughout. Low potency. 3

(Taste) Wheat malt, honey malts and a hint of orange. Musty, dank flavor, semi-dry buckwheat finish. Low hop bitterness and a very faint floral hop note. Balance is slightly sweet. A touch more bitterness would remedy the balance. Despite being only about a month or so from the date, the flavor seems to have turned for the worse. The yeast may have begun to foul. Overall, it's a murky wheat beer with a shallow flavor profile. 2.75

(Mouthfeel) Fuzzy carbonation levels on the tongue, slightly slick with a touch of soft body thickness from the wheat protein. Medium body for the style, low body overall. Alcohol presence is medium, a bit easier to discern than in most wheat beers. 3.5

(Overall) My overall impressions aren't overly positive with this beer, although I do distinctively remember it tasting more pleasant, bright and crisp when young. The bottle conditioning likely helps diversify the subtleties, but can get easily blow the balance out of hand when left alone for too long. Get this beer as fresh and young as you can to savor some of the more fragile notes. 3.25

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A- Hazy golden pour, head dissipates quickly

S- Citrus, barely, and honey tones

T- Bright citrus, lime and lemon flavors. Light orange blossom honey flavor

M- Bright and fresh. Has medium carbonation. Little to no after-taste

O- Very drinkable beer. Has been my spring and summer goto beer for years. Unfiltered Wheat was actually the first bottle of beer I had. I think this has been, consistently, one of the best beers Boulevard has made.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance 3.5: Poured out a hazy golden color with a crazy, fizzy head that quickly subsided.

-Smell 3.5: Good bouquet, kind of a slightly sour smell, but I do detect some honey and malt.

-Taste 3.5: Very light and bubbly. Front is sour and somewhat sweet, but this transitions into a dry middle that is refreshing. Finish is dry and filled with pleasant light sugar flavors. Aftertaste is almost non-existent. Very light and invigorating.

-Mouthfeel 3.0: Average carbonation. Think macro-brew.

-Overall 3.5: Good wheat beer that would be a really refreshing lawnmower beer. Light and bubbly and would be perfect for the summer.
