This is a divergent opinion, and I like Boulevard beers, but this was very poor. Overpowering minty smell and taste - like a mint julep but with no beer underneath. There was nothing besides the mint. My bartender agreed and apologized for pouring this. Look forward to their other great beers.

On tap. Pours a golden yellow color with a white, one finger head that dissipates slowly and doesn't leave lacing. Nose is an after meal mint. Taste is a little bit of wheat body with a big hit of tooth paste style mint that decimates the taste buds. The faux mint taste actually becomes chalkier and stronger as the beer warms. Medium carbonation and medium body with unescapable mint aftertaste.
I haven't had a mint julep, but I imagine it tastes better than this beer. I pushed through 2/3 of it before I asked for a water to purge my mouth of the mint and get a different beer. Apparently I'm not the only person there who didn't really like it since the bar was giving out a tulip glasses with the beer to get rid of the keg.

This is a super refreshing beer with much mint & well hidden ABV . I liked the subtle grassiness & pears, married well with mint along with melon . Well worth a try, will get this again

I was a little skeptical of a cocktail emulating beer at first but they actually pulled it off somehow. The tripel base provide a good booziness and sweetness to the beer. The barrel age gives it enough oak for you to maybe consider this is actually whiskey and the mint seals the deal. Excellent.
