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.

Overall, just a pale imitation of good beers of the style. Flavor and aroma are both too thin, and the head is gone before it can be appreciated.

This is the brew that got me through college. With its cloudy appearance it makes those in bars ask, "what are you drinking," and it always makes me feel somewhat superior to those drinking macroswill (Bud Light, Miller Lite, etc.). A sweeter beer with definite lemon taste. I find that the taste is balanced better with orange than with lemon, if available.

The decision to label this brew with the clunky technical term "unfiltered wheat beer" must have come from the marketing division. It certain lacks the poetry of "hefe weizen". The suits should learn a lesson: people like to speak German! All the kids are doing it! Anyway...Slightly hazy, pale yellow color, with an admirably thick white head. Nose is oddly empty. I expect a good hefe to spring out with aromas and tickle my senses from the start, and that’s not happening here. Very little suggests itself, apart from some citrus, straw, faint hints of vanilla, bananas, and overall, very dry. Typically grainy texture on the palate, a very light body, fine balance. Some honey flavors jump in the end, but it doesn’t make much difference. The finish is swift, forgettable, disappointing. A lackluster hefe weizen, I’m afraid.

a little medicinal smell. pours yellow colored with a white head. taste is pretty refreshing. not the best american wheat ive ever had, but not the worst. also this turns out to be a little watery in the finish. a pleasing beer to drink none-the-less. thanks bill for the trade!

Pretty generic all around. Not much flavor or aroma. Very smooth with no bitterness.

Draft - little to no aroma, carbonation or flavor. A bad example of a bad style.

Smells and looks good, but not really my kind of beer. Bars serve it with lemon, which I always think is a bad idea. A good beer/ale should stand on its own.

boulevard brewers: YOU FAIL. YOU FAIL MISERABLY. this beer has no character. i’d rather be drinking miller high life. at least high life doesn’t try to cater to people who know (or think they know) beer. this tastes like an american standard with a twist of lemon. i’d drink this if it were on special for $5/pitcher at the bar...... but no. this is a specialty micro brew. yeah right. i hate boulevard’s ugly logo, too.

Cloudy Yellow Coloring. Has a Dusty Wheat Aroma to it. A bit overpowering on the Wheat End... Added Orange Slice and that Balanced it out Better.

Bright yellow color, very cloudy and hazy with a light head and no lacing. The nose is lightly citrusy and mild with some wheat and spicy clove notes. The flavor is rounded with some wheat and an all around average base. Finishes watery with some more citrus. Not bad for an american wheat.
