3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Batch # 2010-1
A - Pours a turbid glowing orange with a milky wet head.
S - Dank wheat, mild but pungent hops, citrus peel and sugary fruit, pears, over ripe apricots, clove, white pepper, hints of alcohol. A potent perfume floral scent comes out as it warms.
T - Starts off with lemon citrus. Sugary apricots and various stone fruits, doughy wheat bread resides under the citrus hops. The hops cling to the sides of the tongue and wick away any sweetness, yet the fruit esters stay. Finishes dry with an herbal and almost minty character.
M - Super soft and creamy, heavy side of medium. Flows across the palate nicely.
Very complex. There’s a rawness but it’s weaved together in a delicate way. It’s fruity, raw, mellow, sweet, dry, bitter, and much more.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a lighter orange color than i would expect from a barley wine. Not as hoppy as a barley wine is either. But still quite good. Bit sweet with some grass in the flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle for $6.99. Aroma is wheat husk, crushed malt grains, lime, banana, and peppermint. Appearance is dark, grey yellow with a lot of foam. Taste is lime, paprika, cornbread and orange zest. There’s a wooden earthiness that adds a complementary dimension. Palate is medium bodied and heavily carbonated. Overall, it’s crisp, filling due to the big carbonation dose, refreshing, sweet. Pretty good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Corked 750 mL bottle split with TheRon. Great label. Definitely bottle conditioned. Pours a bright golden with a ridiculous amount of floaties. Yeasty aroma, coupled with some booziness, tropical fruitiness, and vanilla. Quite the complex beer. Flavor packs a ton of tropical fruits, apricots, pears, a bit more yeast and oak, with a wonderful quick, dry finish that leaves only the warmth of the alcohol behind. Very nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the March 2013 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a very cloudy- almost murky peach color with a large foamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was boozy with faint candied pear and apple and a bready undertone. The flavor was a bit rough and boozy with notes of bread, pear, cardboard, faint apricot and pepper. Medium length boozy pear and bread finish. Moderately full bodied. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a slightly hazy deep orange color with a dense and lasting light tan head. The nose rich with oranges, caramel, and a bit of spice. Potent on the tongue, the citrus really shines with orange and tangerine notes, slight wheat, caramel, and spice. Full bodied with ample but softer carbonation leading to a lingering finish. I found it hard to put the glass down with this one.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml Bottle. Pours a golden orange color with big white head. Caramel, citrus, wheat aromas. Oak, grainy, citrus, and dry white wine flavors. I really like this beer. Some barleywines have such a powerful flavor that it can be a little difficult to drink. This wheat wine is pretty refreshing and pretty easy to drink for a higher alcohol barlywine-type beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The orange-amber color made this beer look more like a DIPA, than a wheatwine. The beer was well carbonated, and a four finger thick head formed rapidly in my Duvel tulip glass. The beer smelled strongly like oranges and roses. The taste was quite a bit more hoppy than I was expecting, because I did not read the back label first. The orange juice like flavor from the wheat malt phenols was balanced by very citric hops. There were notes of clove and pepper in the finish, as well as some white grape vinousness. The body was light and the fluffy feel given by the carbonation aided in drinkability. The alcohol was very well concealed, as there was no burn. Another well made beer from Boulevard.

Pours clear gold with a white head. Aroma is grass, citrus and wheat. Taste follows nose with a lot of carbonation. Taste like an imperial pilsner.
