I bought this beer wanting to try something new as I have been a Porter Stout guy for a while. I was really impressed, great aromas very good strong wheat taste and way to easy to drink this will be the light in a fridge full of dark. Solid product

Not huge on wheats as to me, most taste the same, aside of course from our beloved Boulevard. This wonderfully hazed hoppy wheat offers a decent feel and nice conveyor of flavors. Honey Lemon, with slight pineyness and wonderful smooth finish. That's what she said. Another home run by KCs championship brew crew.

I like this better than top Ba's. It's aspirin like, minerally, chalky golden goodness at cash temp.
a) Pillowy head over hazed golden body, lasts and laces a bit.
s) Ample lemon, wheat, grass, aspirin, minerally chalk.
t) Big,pleasing, ranging from juniper to honey sweetness, on a lemony wheat core.
f) Dry, that chalky goodness pairs well with food. Mineral, dry, gin-like, juniper spirits.
o) Original, take no prisoners, unapologetic approach. Go for 6.

I was elated & an attendee a few years ago at the Press fete in PHL for the announcement that Boulevard B.C. beers of KC, MO would now be available in PA! My enthusiasm has not waned in the least, but I have a sufficient amount of their beers in the Bottle Backlog here at Chez Woody that I am conducting a Coup de Boule(vard) today for New Beer Sunday (Week 663). Hang on, it's going to be quite the ride!

From the bottle: "Brewed with pure water, barley, wheat, hops, and yeast by Boulevard Brewing Company, Kansas City, Missouri."

I'm taking this one slightly out of my intended order, increasing in ABV, but I just revisited their Unfiltered Wheat Beer & it just seemed to make sense to continue with another Wheat Beer.

Having Pop!ped the cap, I felt as though a hard, heavy-handed, aggro pour was in order. This resulted in a mound of three fingers of dense, rocky, eggshell-white head with decent retention. Color was a deeply-hazy/lightly cloudy Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 -5). Nose had an interesting admixture of black pepper, Simcoe-like cattiness, Cascade-like minty-pine and a light lemony citrusiness. Mouthfeel was medium, denser than their standard Unfiltered Wheat Beer. This was definitely bringing the hops in comparison to the previous one! I would say almost definitely that Simcoe & Cascade were involved, plus the wheat gave it a peppery spiciness. This kind of thing is exactly why I got excited when they announced their arrival. The finish was semi-dry, but very hoppy and entirely refreshing. If they were to CAN this, I would def put it in my cooler when headed for the beach! The Unfiltered Wheat Beer was likewise refreshing, but the inclusion of hops makes this beer my winner between the two.

Kind of a combo of a farmhouse ale and a pale ale. Very tasty, clean, very drinkable. Hoppy, yet wheaty and citrusy. Great beer. Unfiltered look in a glass with great lacing - feels like you're drinking something special. It's a good change of pace. Recommend!
