3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy golden color. A large, foamy white head is formed with three fingers and a soft texture. It fades moderately quickly, and leaves spotty lacing down the glass.
S: There is a decent amount of grapefruit, orange, grass, and lemon notes that betrays a rock-solid hop profile. What I’m not quite so sure about is the faint phenolic touch I also pick up. It sadly detracts from an otherwise very good aroma.
T: The flavor reveals lush citrusy notes throughout, and even an initial grapefruit-esque juiciness. It finishes with light touches of grass and lemon, and the dodgy phenols I picked up in the nose is kept in control here. Really likable if a touch mild.
M: I like how lush and creamy this is, helping to keep carbonation in check - and making it a bit syrupy at times. Aside from me wanting a drier finish, this has a very nice feel and great drinkability.
O: The more I have from Boulevard, the more I grow to like them. When done right, this is a style I really enjoy, and this beer in particular is a success. I’d gladly make this a regular in my fridge.

Bottle to pint. Cloudy yellow pour with a thin white head. Minimal lacing. Orange peel, citrus hops, and some wheat in the aroma. Flavor is similar - fairly hoppy. Dry mouthfeel.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours bright light orange with a thin white head with just a little lacing. Aroma is of citrus, wheat bread, tropical fruits, some light sweet malts, and some floral hops. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a very tasty wheat that very refreshing and drinkable.

On tap at Ild Chicago in Wichita. Pours a golden wheat, which is to say cloudy and a thin white head and a bit of lacing. Aroma is of wheat and a touch of citrus and a bit of clove. Tastes lightly of hops and spice and citrus. A very good example of the style.

A favorite everyday beer. Good by itself; great with food. Well-hopped, but balanced.
