3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A nice gold color with a white head that mostly fades. The aroma is dominated by the Belgian yeast with a bit of lemon. The taste is a mix of a typical wit and a sour, both sour lemon and bready yeast.

750 ml bottle into tulip, bottled 1-2011; best by 12-2011. Pours hazy golden straw color with a nice 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of big banana, pepper, clove, herbs, ginger, wheat, citrus, bubblegum, light bread, and yeast spices. Some very nice and highly complex aromas, with great balance. Taste of big banana, bubblegum, pepper, clove, apple, citrus peel, light herbs, bread, grainy tartness, and yeast spices. Fairly dry finish; but some lingering notes of banana, bubblegum, tart grain, bread, spices, and citrus on the finish for a bit. Medium body and elevated carbonation; with a slightly creamy and slick mouthfeel, with some light prickly carbonation. Extremely smooth to drink; with pretty much no alcohol noticed at all for 8%. Overall this is an excellent imperial Witbier. Great balance of flavors; big complexity; and very smooth to drink for the level of alcohol. Really enjoyed this one.

Golden, cloudy unfiltered appearance. The nose shows herbs and citrus zest. Medium carbonation, but a thick head, heavy lacing. Bright, fresh and delicious. Esters/florals on the finish. Great stuff!

Was able to try this beer in the fall, and loved it. Then I found out Boulevard cancelled it. I have one more sitting in my cellar. Hopefully it comes back as a special release.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Served in tulip glass from 750ml bottle. Best by date 2012-1. Aroma is citrus and cardamon. I can smell the alcohol. Golden color and fairly clear. Very light crisp taste and slightly sour. Hides the alcohol taste very well. Fairly carbonated. Very sour aftertaste. I taste alot of lemon. This would be very refreshing on a hot summer day. One of the best witbiers ive had considering the 8% ABV. Excellent!

I was not that crazy about this. I think the abv is too high. Flavor and aroma have classic wit qualities, light clove, citrus, and wheat. Well carbonated, and a large, white head. Sweet finish. Opaque gold color.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2012 Pours hazy gold...egg shell white head. Aroma of fruit...lemon and ginger. Flavor is citrus , ginger, lemongrass, and banana hints. Palate is medium and carbed well. Just an outsanding wit beer. Too bad blvd is not making this next year. Good way to end 2011. One of my favorites from the year

Bottle pours murky light orange with a thick white head with fairly low retention. The aromas are citrus, spices, and and sweet floral overall. The tastes are orange, coriander, and some sourness that is quite pronounced. The beer has a short tart finish. Overall, a pleasing brew that had a nice sourness I was not expecting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2012 750mL bottle, split 3 ways, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of lavender and coriander upfront, clove, floral notes, yeast. Flavour is heavy on lavender, coriander, citrus, yeast, banana and some sweet notes - alcohol is slightly noticeable. Full-bodied for the style and doesn’t suffer from the weak, citric, watery qualities in many white beers. Very enjoyable.
