12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 3/8/2018. Pours fairly hazy ruby red/orange/pink/purple color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky light pink head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of juicy/lightly tart/tangy raspberry, blueberry, cherry, fruit skin, melon, citrus zest, red grape/wine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light herbal/grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of berries, bready malts, and light fruity yeast/citrus hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big juicy/lightly tart/tangy raspberry, blueberry, cherry, fruit skin, melon, citrus zest, red grape/wine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light herbal/grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal, grassy, citrus peel bitterness; and fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of juicy raspberry, blueberry, cherry, fruit skin, melon, citrus zest, red grape/wine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light herbal/grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of berries, bready malts, and light fruity yeast/citrus hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness and tart/tangy fruit balance; with zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and tart/tangy fruit. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, fairly acidic/tangy/tannic, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 5.9%. Overall this is an excellent fruit beer! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of berries, bready malts, and light fruity yeast/citrus hop flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink, with the mellowly tart/bitter/drying finish. Awesome jammy berry flavors with balanced bready malts. Not overly sweet. A very enjoyable offering and spot on style example. Exceptional levels of fruit presence.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours a hazy, purple color with a thin, white head that doesn't leave lacing. Nose of raspberry, blueberry, and blackberry. Taste is raspberry, blueberry, and cherry with a clean citrus finish. Medium carbonation and medium-light body.
It's alcohol infused juice. It's watered down but super drinkable and allows the berries to really shine. The raspberry is the dominant berry but the blueberry, blackberry, and sweet cherry do come through. Definitely not a winter beer but a good spring or summer beer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours an effervescent purple with a pinky of pinkish head. Decent head retention & lacing

S: A little cherry, not much else

T: Tart raspberry, dryness, a little blueberry up front. More of the same as this warms, sweetness picks up a bit. Finishes with a little berry sweetess & dryness

MF: Medium body, fairly firm carbonation

Drinks alright, but just not one I would buy again

Cloudy purple colored beer with a tall purple pink colored head. I must emphasis this is purple.

Smells of berry and wheat crackers. Slight sour scent and lesser scent of medicine.

Starts out mildly sour and tasting of sour blackberry. Taste of mineral water and seltzer. Mostly this is a mild fruit beer.

Mouthfeel is light.

Overall this is just a mild easy drinking beer. Don't buy expecting a gourmet experience. Just easy drinking fruit beer, really suited to a hot day.

Pours a murky ruby-maroon with a finger of pink foam. Head retention is good with a few strands of lacing. Aroma is blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries. Nice hearty, almost lambic-like aroma. Flavor profile is dense notes of blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries. Berries are well done, with no notable sour or tart side effects. There is a little hit of earthy, biscuit malts at the finish which keeps the berry notes from lingering on the tongue. Mouthfeel is medium-thin, with a watery feel that makes the whole thing for a little thin and lacking. Overall, it begins to approach the lambic style taste, but is broken up by a touch of malt at the finish.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz can. Reviewed from notes.

Boulevard Jam Band Berry Ale, 5.9% ABV. Pours violet with a one finger white head. Nose is tart raspberry - reminded me of a fruit lambic. Taste is raspberry and cherry, a bit tart, a bit sweet. Excellent mouthfeel, overall very excellent to outstanding.

Pours a cloudy maize color. 1/2 inch head of an off-pink color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of raspberry, cherry, sweet malt, slight pale malt, slight dough, and a hint of citrus hops. Fits the style of a Fruit/Vegetable Beer. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of raspberry, cherry, sweet malt, slight pale malt, slight dough, hint of alcohol, and a hint of citrus hops. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, and blend.

Front overly tart, fades into a grainy finish. Looks unique, while the taste seems to mellow the more you drink.

Taste rating in words: It's wearing a coat when a jacket would do.
