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.

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.

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.

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.
