This beer pours a very cloudy dull yellow with a medium white head. The aromas are bananas and oak. The flavors are bananas, oak and a little citrus. Not a bad offering from boulevard. Cheers!

Batch number 1-2009. Pours a hazy honey color with large off white head. Aroma of spice, citrus, wheat, grass and floral. Initial taste is quite lively with hints of wheat and spice. Finish is smooth with a malt forward taste. Reminds me of a belgian, but more intense. Pretty good.

thanks to solan for sharing a 750 of this. Very floral aroma, spicy citrus, kumquats, tangerines, and meyer lemons, hints of grains of paradise, very tropical aromas. Pours cloudy golden blonde with a thick white head. Smooth citrus, spicy, and bready, thick mouthfeel with hints of vanilla. Very nice wheat wine.

Not impressed at all. I was really lookking forward to my first wheat wine, but this was a let down. I didn’t get any wheat at all- more like a mildly hopped Belgian. Looked really pretty in the glass though.

( 750ml bottle marked batch 1-2009 10/10) pours clear orange with huge frothy head that sticks around forever. Nose of earthy hops, citrus, spices, and grapes. Taste is lightly bitter hops, white wine, alcohol, and sweet malt. A little syrupy, well carbonated and pretty delicious.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle $9. Nice orange color with a super-foamy head, I was actually surprised how much this one foamed up. The smell was kind of weird like a belgian style beer, strange and I wasn;t too impressed. The flavor had some tropical fruit just as the label noted but overall it was kind of boring, a little bit of vanilla and alcohol. This is not a beer I would revisit but I will always give the smokestack beers a whirl.

Pours a hazy honey color - foamy, with an incredibly sticky lace - earthy wheat malt in the nose, lightly phenolic, spicy, estery, tangy, wildflower notes, lightly musty, mildly belgian in character - carbonation is full in the mouth, but not abrasive - flavor is much drier than expected, with some spicy hops, some flinty character - sweetness finally develops a few seconds in in the form of some wildflower honey flavor, which compliments some of the estery components - light phenols and quite a bit of tangy wheat - a touch of tartness far in the back - the belgian-ish character from the aroma is present, reminding me just slightly of a saison - late spiciness and alcohol warmth - there is some strong oak character in the finish that doesn’t really do anything to help the beer, in fact, I would say it takes away from my enjoyment - everything before that is pretty good, though.
