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.

On tap, wonderfully cloudy and straw-colored, with a big fluffy head. Excellent nose of banana, orange, and grass (let your barkeep throw a lemon in there and you will certainly miss this aspect). On tasting, the beer is timid and lacks depth. A good effort and a hefe brewed with an unorthodox method, but still needs some development. This hefe is an advertisement for the modern methods of brewing wheat beers.

This is my favorite of the Boulevard beers. It tasteís great after a round of golf in a hot, humid day in the Midwest.

Overall a pretty plain and boring beer. Slight lime (citrus) scent. Very, very little head, almost to the point of being flat. Slight sour notes, not as smooth as other wheat beers around. Very biting mouthfeel.

A nice drinkable beer. The most noteworthy thing about it was its lack of anything that could be considered noteworthy. Just a very ordinary wheat. Very drinkable, just kind of plain.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2006 The beer that got me to like beer. Sure it is on the watery side, but with a lemon the light taste are strengthened. The appearence is one of the finest Iíve ever seen. Love it!

Deep, cloudy gold with a musty aroma. Yeast and honey dominate with perhaps a sour citrus. A slice of lemon definitely helps bring out the flavor. A nice wheat beer, nothing special.

Pours murky yellow-gold with smallish head. Honey and peach to the nose. More honeyed flavors in the taste with wheat and a mild hops finish. Clean with nice aftertaste. Mouthfeel is excellent and has a velvety, buttery quality. I like this quite a bit.

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 thatís 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 doesnít make much difference. The finish is swift, forgettable, disappointing. A lackluster hefe weizen, Iím afraid.
