3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaska från SB. Ibland blir inte dubbelt så mycket dubbelt så bra. Större kropp, högre sötma, mer kryddor. Får lite stor uppsötad belgisk blond men lite mer vetesyrlighet. Blir mycket blommig och fruktig parfym med apelsinskal, lavendel, koriander, blomstervatten. Lätt kvalmig men vetesyrligheten räddar upp det lite. Roligt men lite väl mycket tant.

This is a really nice strong witbier. Pours orange gold with a nice white head that leaves lacing. Aroma of orange peel, banana, bread, funky Belgian yeast. Very refreshing with the right amount of tartness. Nice sweet/sour flavor, very drinkable for the 8% abv. Would repeat.

Lemon, lime, and tart persimmon aroma. Cloudy golden, medium head. Lime, and the suggestion of coriander. Medium body, tangy, easy carbonation. Very nicely done, tasty and refreshing, somewhat lacking in nuance. Paired extremely well with my avocado and cilantro burger.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Bier Station in Kansas City. Arrived in a tulip glass.
A: Arrived a cloudy orange-gold, with a decent pale head that left some appreciable lacing.
S: I was sitting right next to an open kitchen, so my sense of smell was a little muddled. However, citrus notes leap out of the glass with this beer, primarily orange, like walking through an orange grove a bit past harvest time. Some spice and herb notes are also present, though well below the citrus.
T: See the description of the smell. This beer packs a serious orange-citrus punch, alongside a pronounced spicey-herbal presence. Orange juice and peel tastes abound, mixed with heavy coriander, lavender, and hints of white pepper. As the beer goes along, a slight touch of lactic sourness makes itself known around the edges of the citrus blast.
M: Lively and sparkling, this has the right amount of carbonation sharpness to it.
O: A very enjoyable experience, and the first Boulevard offering I’ve liked out of what I’ve tried. Had I been able to find a case of this, it would have come home with me.
