Hoppy wheats if that is a word. Tiny plantable banana aroma with hop addition. Refreshing crisp wheat and flavor. Could have been nightmare but really good.

Faint zesty citrus with a lemon and wheat infusion. Soft bitterness sweet lingering finish. Not hoppy at all taste more like a sweet wheat. Probably perfect for a hot summer day.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, best by 04/23/15. Nose is lightly dusty, room-filling orange peel and light orange pith from strong and expressive hops. Pours bright golden with a large, jiggly cream head. Taste strong, orangey PNW hops, followed by smooth dry wheat (no slime here!), the finish light and gentle bread. Very light bitterness, touch of cracker, dry and yeasty on the whole with complex mineral character. Medium body, rounded and satisfying. Does refresh, and they’re getting a very distinctive, interesting taste out of the wheat, but the hops are too candyish for me and threaten to cloy an otherwise very dry beer -- I’m saying the execution is superb, but the recipe not to my preferences.
Great to finally see Boulevard in NJ, though!

12oz bottle from a sampler 12 pack from Giant Eagle in Upper Arlington. Yellow gold pour with bubbly white head and soapy stick. Aroma of lemon citrus, herbal, wheat. Tastes of bready, juicy citrus, grass, hay, herbal. Not my favorite style, but this is a best of and just generally good.
