Pours hazy pale yellow with a medium slowly fading white head, some light lacing. Aroma is sweet citrus, mild grapefruity notes, wheat, citrus floral hops. Taste sane as aroma with a mild citrus grapefruit hops bitterness. Palate is medium body, mildly crisp on the palate. Finishes with a wheat some grassy flavor, mildly sweet citrus grapefruit hops bitterness. Overall a pleasant and easy going brew.

I'm not a fan of American wheat beers but with Boulevard new to SePa I bought one to sample and much to my dismay it was pretty good.
It was hoppy in the taste and in the nose.
In the nose it had a citrusy lemony grapefruit smell.
The taste reminded me alot of lemon drop candies.
Hazy straw color with a decent head.

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Cloudy yellow with 1 finger of white head. Light carbonation with slight yeast sediment.

Nose
Lemon, wheat, white grapefruit, and papaya.

Taste
Very lemony. Tangy wheat, lemon juice, lemongrass, and touches of papaya. Crisp wheaty backbone with notes of pale maltiness. Perhaps a drizzle of caramel.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp, clean, and refreshing.

Overall
Sure has a decent wheat bill. Slightly tangy with lots of lemon.
