Good head. Cloudy. Refreshing, but light on flavor.

Look: hazy pale gold. Big foamy head that mostly recedes.
Smell: pretty light nose, though pleasant enough. Hint of citrus.
Taste. Much like the nose. Not a lot going on but quite drinkable.

I picked up a bottle of Boulevard's Unfiltered Wheat in their new variety pack at The Lager Mill. I'm working my way through this variety pack and I thought it was time to give this wheat beer a try, so lets see how it goes. 2016 Vintage. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a weizen glass.

A- The label looks nice, it's got a nice design and it's just a little eye catching. It poured a cloudy orange yellow color that took on more of golden color when held to the light and it had a little over two fingers worth of creamy slightly off white head that died down to a thin layer that eventually faded away and it left some nice patchy lacing behind. This is a good looking beer, I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a slightly higher amount of medium sweetness with a little bit of doughy yeast being the first to show up and it's followed by a nice lemon peel and citrus aroma that's followed by the malts which impart a wheat, bready and biscuit malt like aromas. This beer has a good aroma, I like it and it's a little unique for the style.

T- The taste seems to be similar to the aroma and it starts off with a slightly higher amount of medium sweetness with the doughy yeast still being the first to show up and it quickly goes into those nice lemon juice and rind aspects that I got in the aroma and it's a little stronger. Up next comes the malts which impart all the same aspects that they did in the aroma, but this time there's also a little bit of a grainy aspect to it. On the finish there's hardly any bitterness with a slight bit of tartness with lemon, biscuit and bready malt aftertaste. THis is a good tasting beer, I like that it's unique.

M- Smooth, a little refreshing, a little crisp, medium bodied with a slightly higher amount of medium carbonation. This beer has a good mouthfeel that works well with it.

Overall I thought this was a good beer and a good and unique example of the style, it threw me off at first because it didn't rely on the typical orange rind flavors that most of the beers in this style goes for, instead or oranges it took a lemon approach to this style and I thought it worked out well and it was nice for the hot weather. This beer had good drinkability, I could drink a few of these, especially when it's hot out. What I like the most about this beer is how unique it is, it's not a like a lot of the beers in this style. What I like the least about this beer is nothing, there's isn't anything that I would change, it's good just the way it is. I would buy this beer on it's own, especially if it's hot out and I would recommend it to anyone that like more of lemon flavored wheat beer. All in all I was happy with this beer and a little impressed that they didn't go the typical route with this one and I think ti payed off. It's one of the better Boulevard beers I've had and it's one of the better lemon flavored wheat beers I've had. Good job guys, this is a tasty and unique beer, keep it up.

Why drink craft beer if this is what you are going to drink? Good but tastes just as good as Coors.
