What a great surprise. I’m not into sours but this is truly unique. It has a full berry flavor with a slight cherry aftertaste pours a nice clear reddish color and looks great in a glass with light carbonation sliding up the glass. This thing is a hit.

From a can at the 2018 Decatur Beer Fest.
Pours with a clear reddish-brown body topped with very good white head. Excellent clarity.
Mild, lightly tart aroma.
The flavor is mildly bitter and fruity with just a hint of biscuits.
Medium body with medium carbonation.

Very nice fruit beer - not an artificial fruit taste, tastes genuinely of the berries that it says it includes. Smooth, easy, looks beautiful, tastes great, creamy thick feel - great beer and handles the fruit well, which is rare. Doesn't have the little extras that would make it mind-blowing, but very very good and does really well what it describes itself as - Boulevard being as good as ever, even handling a fruit beer really well.

A - Largely opaque, reddish purple body, small white head, fading to a minimal line, trace lacing.

S - Berry, raspberry first and foremost, with just a hint of tart cherry and sweetness and acidity.

T - Juicy. Bright fruit, rich cherry and berries. Delicious combination that delivers on the name.

M - Brisk carbonation, light feel, tart finish.

O - Solid fruit beer with great nose and flavor.

Boulevard Brewing Co. " Jam Band"
12 fl. oz. can, coded "LO41618 13:45 13SEP2018 F" and sampled on 28JUL2018
$1.99 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: "JAM BAND"... should I put on some Greatful Dead? The label reads "BERRY ALE WITH BLUEBERRY RED RASPBERRY AND CHERRY" - sounds great! It's poured a hazy ruby colored body beneath a creamy head of pink foam. The aroma is not as strong as I expected it to be but it's definitely like sweet fruity jam. On to the flavor... absolutely, it's like jam. I was wondering how the fruits would work out together. I can find the cherry fairly easily but the blueberry and raspberry are a little harder to pinpoint. Still, they're both there. It's really fantastic. It's sweetish but not too sweet, and I'll say it would certainly make a great dessert beer I think you could just as easily enjoy it by itself. How many in a row is up to you, but I think one might be my limit. If it were a little tarter maybe more, but it's not tart at all. I'm actually a little surprised, the label doesn't say anything about flavorings so it must be all fruit, so how did they do this? Ahhh, who cares, it's good. Medium bodied and smooth, it's quite easy to drink. And looking back it's left great lacing behind. I should have known that Boulevard would have been able to pull off one of the best fruit beers that I've had in a long while. Certainly worth trying for fans of the fruit.

Pours a purplish red, creamy head with good retention. Aroma is definitely berry-forward but not over-the-top, a tad sweet, like jam or compote. Aroma taste to me is mostly raspberry & grape, maybe a little blackberry, the malt base is a little dry / stale tasting but that is the only real miss. If you like fruit beers this is a pretty good one
