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.

Sweet, fruity and unapologetically jammy, Boulevard Brewing Company has us looking forward to warmer weather with a berry-centric ale with the impressions of all things summer.

Jam Band pours with a hazy mauve color, carrying a dense visual weight with a loose, pinkish, spongy froth. Rich fruit aromas strike the nose with the advertised cherry, blueberry and blackberry character with a pep of citrus and red wine. Sweet and pastry-like on the early palate, the taste takes the tongue on a trip from fruit smoothie to cobbler and yes... jam.

Little changes across the middle palate as the sweet fructose and candied malts lock into the tastebuds. The spice of pectins that pull from the fruit adds a tannin rich balance much in the same way that robust dark wines do. Macerated fruit seems concentrated and dense with its puree quality while the a mild acidity applies a tartness on the late palate. A citrusy bitterness plays out late with a peppery hop spice and a mild resinous character.

Medium bodied throughout, the beer seems heavier because of the lingering sweetness that saturates the tastebuds and brings quick fatigue on the palate. A light earthiness of date and fig eventually pull through while the ale finishes winey, peppery and truly jammy in a medium length aftertaste.

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.

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.

On tap. Poured a purplish, red color with a small, pinkish head of foam. It smelled very fruity. I really picked out the raspberry and cherry. Sweet fruity flavor - lots of cherry, some raspberry. Nice tart finish.
