COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat Beer is a lively, refreshing ale with a naturally citrusy flavor and distinctive cloudy appearance. It is reminiscent of the wheat beers that were brewed at the turn of the century, before the advent of modern filtration. This easy-drinking American-style wheat beer has become our most popular offering, and the best-selling craft beer in the Midwest. 2008 GABF gold medal winner in Session Beer category.

Pour from a 12 oz. bottle, consumed on 3-5-14. Bottle from a mixed 12 pack I purchased before Thanksgiving, so itís at least 3.5 months old, though I donít think it has suffered significantly for that light aging. Yeasty, complex, and strong aroma features scents of apple juice, white grape juice, sweet white wine, urine, golden raisin, hay, cigar tobacco, leather, minerals, and mineral water. Mixed aroma, a combination of good and bad, but the strength and complexity earns it an above average score. Pours a straw or pale gold color. Highly effervescent. Small amount of off-white head. I love the long-lasting effervescence. I poured this in two separate, roughly equally sized pours. The first pour had an ordinary apperance aside from the strong effervescence. The second pour was cloudy with much large, suspended particulate. Normally I like that, but there was so much large, suspended particulate that it looked a bit unappetizing. Flavors of apple, apple juice, lemon, and saltwater. Bready taste. Some dryness reminiscent of a saison. A touch of hefeweizen-esque bubblegum. Much less complex in flavor than in aroma. Light body. Frothy in the palate. Subpar palate, as is common for the style. Overall, itís not at all a bad beer. Itís actually fairly interesting and dare I say memorable. But it is ultimately too much of a mixed bag to count as "good."

Amazing on hot mid west days. Fresh, fruity taste, an added slice of fruit is excellent with this (usually not a fan of adding fruit).

Not a horrible tasting beer. You can definitely drink a lot of this in one sitting without feeling gross. But it doesn't have much flavor to speak of. It's like a bud light brewed by a craft brewery.

Boulevard Wheat is hugely popular here in the Midwest. Itís no mystery. This beer has light, refreshing citrus notes, soft carbonation, and a clean finish. While the taste is a bit modest, you canít argue with the overall quality of the beer. This is a beer designed to be a thirst-quenching session ale and it succeeds quite well in that capacity.
