COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boulevard Ginger-Lemon Radler is a zesty, refreshing take on the tradition of mixing beer with soda or lemonade to create a light, thirst-quenching beverage ideal for warm weather. Radler (literally ďcyclist,Ē) takes its name from active German sportsmen of a hundred years ago, but our version tastes just as good even if you do nothing more strenuous than lifting it to your lips.

Incredibly rich ginger lemon flavor. It is the ultimate shandy. Cloudy yellow color with a distinctive ginger aroma.

Bottle poured a cloudy yellow with a small lingering white head. Aromas of lemon, ginger, wheat and light yeast. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of lemon, ginger and light wheat with a crisp lingering lemon finish.

On draught.
Pours a hazy yellow with a very small head.

The aroma is lemony & bright itís lightly sweet smelling with a touch of the ginger. Itís inviting and surprising that itís not overbearing in any elements particularly sweetness.

The flavor is tart & lemony with a nice light doughiness. The beer is sweet but decidedly not overly sweet. Itís got a mild ginger flavor up front but as the beer warms the ginger root comes out more and more... on both accounts the flavor is pretty well integrated into the flavor profile of the beer as a whole.

On all accounts a sort of benchmark for the Shandy/Radler style.

Bottle. Pours a a hazy pale yellow with a foamy white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a nice refined lemon note with a touch of wheat and a ginger bite underlying. Flavor has the same refined lemon with a more subdued finger note and a wheat backbone.

seymour (1401) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Shared from a bottle into sampler glasses. It poured a hazy golden orange colour with a sudsy head of tight little white bubbles. A spin on German/Austrian Radler beer which is typically a blend of lager with carbonated fruit juice. This one used Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat as the base, which is a really nice, light, grainy summer spritzer to begin with. The sour lemon and spicy ginger added a great new spin. Light body, tart aftertaste with just a hint of residual fruit sugar. I still prefer Stiegl, but only because I like grapefruit better than lemon and ginger. This one was very tasty too, and equally well-crafted.

16 oz pilsner style glass. Foamy and amber. Very drinkable fruit beer. Approached this one with trepidation. Turns out itís an outstanding hot weather brew, Light, spicy, well balanced. Love it.

Wow. This was so much more than I expected. Wonderful lemon aroma and flavor. The ginger mixes in nicely. A super refreshing beer. So smooth with crisp lemon flavors. Amazing. Boulevard has done it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to Eugene for the bottle - pours a turbid gold, looking almost like a Hefeweizen - nose of mildly sweet lemonade, melon rind, and mild ginger spiciness, but also some odd musky notes and lemon pledge kind of character as well - moderately sweet up front, but the tartness kicks in fast - medium, prickly acidity - lemon juice tart/sourness - acidity reaches a rather biting stregth (malic, citric) need the finish - ginger becomes noticeable in the finish and creates a sligh warming sensation - a lemon-lim soda quality on the tail end as well - just kind of tastes like lemonade mixed with 7-up to me, really - not really a fan.
