2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a milky yellow-gold with a 2 finger, frothy white head. Aroma is full of citrus (smells very cascade-like) hops, a little pine, dusty wheat, fruity notes and a light bready note. Flavor is sweetish wheat and lemon up front, some mineral, bready yeast, sweet hay and leafy citrusy hops. Sweet grapefuit, dough and lemon to the finish. Much less hoppy in flavor than aroma, with very little bitterness. Palate is a little heavy for a 5.5% beer with such a crisp aroma and flavor, add the overly light (for this beer), a little bit of chalkiness and it really does a bit of a disservice to the other components, keeping the beer from being as light and refreshing as it should be. Pretty nice wheat ale all things considered, but the aroma really sets you up for an experience that the beer just doesn’t match otherwise.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was a little too thick on the palate for me. It was good but it was nowhere near Boulevards normal wheat beer. Not bad but nothing to write home about.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. They were all sold out at Flying Saucer, I see why...it’s awesome! Stable, 1/2-finger head. Hoppy AND wheaty; I’ll buy THIS hybrid! Naysayers begone - this is way better than it sounds, amazing even. Kind of like salted caramel - it sounds funny, but tastes delicious. It’s exactly what it advertises, and he excels at it. Great full body, medium hoppyness and sweet wheatness!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy yellow pour, big foamy head. Piney hops in the nose along with fresh biscuits. Medium sweet. Toast and grapefruits on the way out, with a slap of hop bitterness. Ends a little awkward. Most surely a hybrid style, different but drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy, yellow pour with a white head. The hoppy aroma has pine, grapefruit, and wheat. The light body has a crisp texture with lively carbonation. It has a bitter taste with some grapefruit rind flavor and a mildly dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained white head, with some lacing, over a cloudy yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is pine, grapefruit, cereal.....taste is pine, resin, grapefruit peel, light cereal, slight lemon, moderate bitter finish.....mouth feel light, carbonation adds tingle. This is a very different Wheat. The hops dominate both aroma and flavor making for an interesting and successful experiment. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

Love the combo of hops and wheat! I could drink it in the summer and through the winter. I’m glad they make it all year long.
