I am not particularly into any kind of fruity beers, tried this for something different though and was pleasantly surprised. Has just the right notes that hit me in all the right spots. Not too tart, not too sweet - just right. I will try this again - maybe on a hot summer day.

12 oz. can

Pours opaque dark rose red with a dense creamy off-white light pinkish foam head. Smells like mixed berry fruit juice, berries, cherries, mild grainy malt, sweet spice, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like fruity juicy raspberry, blueberry, tart cherries, sweet cinnamon-esque cobbler spice, grainy malt, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy with smooth moderate low carbonation. Overall a really nice blueberry raspberry cherry fruit ale.

Canned 3/8/18; drank 5/10/18 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque purple appearance.

A rough pour yielded a huge pink/white head; thick, frothy tree-rung lace.

Blueberry, wheat & raspberry notes in the nose.

Medium thin mouthfeel.

Blueberry & raspberry flavors up front; mild wheat notes on the finish.

This is a straight up fruit beer, showcasing the berries; I like this style & think it's represented well hear. I'd have another...

12 oz. Can
Best By: 06/29/18

Poured into a Trillium glass a pretty nice dark reddish color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy two-finger pink head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, kinda yeasty, with some blueberries, raspberries, cherries. The taste is pretty nice, malty, yeasty, with a nice touch of blueberries, raspberries, cherries, slight tart/sour. Medium body, ABV is hidden nicely. Overall, a tasty brew.

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.

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.

I had a good feeling for this beer. Has a lot of flavor love the berry combination with the raspberries and cherries. Smooth malty body with consistent levels of both sweet and tart.

Would totally get this again and drink a six pack of it. Local place has it in stock. Give it a try!

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.

Nice summer time brew. Full of berriliciousness and brilliant tart tones. Nice half inch head and lacy staying power. Layers of berries and maltiness. Not a drink for everyday, but the occasional glass is wonderful.
