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.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2005 RE-RATE: If you want to know just how much Boulevard has changed this beer in 2003, read my original rating below. These days, Bully Wheat still has a good appearance, mild and soft cloudy, but the aroma and flavor have disappeared. Smells like mild lemonade and grass, taste is pretty empty... basically it tastes dilluted; toned down so that Boulevard could distribute it to all of the theme restaurants like Chili’s and Outback... it’s really sad what happened to this beer. At least their other beers have not changed too much. OLD RATING: Nice cloudy look, very light appearance. Taste is very yeasty and smooth, one of the smoothest wheats I’ve had. Slightly sweet, like grapefruit juice maybe. Boulevard has this knack for making really good beers, I keep being impressed. Quite punchy, almost like grapefruit juice. Very refreshing and sweet. Also, their bottle conditioning is crummy. Have it draft if you can, much better.

(bottle) Hazy gold. Refreshing medium body wheat ale with hints of citrus. Even though it is unfiltered it wasn't too "yeasty."

bottle-man, i wish i had this beer before it went downhill-this used to be a top 10 american wheat brew! WHAT HAPPENED? this thing is dull-little aroma, very thin body even apparent in the glass-thin palate-by far, the most disapointing brew from Boulevard.

lemonlovr (190) - Orland Park, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Definite citrus aroma. Very smooth going down with a nice cloudy yellow appearance. One of my favorite everyday wheats, mostly because it's readily available in Oklahoma.

Kodos (200) - USA - SEP 21, 2003
On Tap. Small quickly diminishing head. Slight cloudiness with a golden color. Rather boring even for an American wheat beer. Citrusy but rather bland taste. Only ok to slug down in the summer heat....

hayden1215 (321) - Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Tap. Pale yellow in color with some sediment, little to no head. Aroma is sweet, citrus with notes of wheatiness. Flavor is light and weak. Not recommended.

Nice cloudy straw color,small white head that faded fast.Nice sweet wheat aroma,grassy and lemony.Nice wheat taste,sweet and mild lemon with a faint peppery taste as well.Nicely carbonated,smooth and highly drinkable,with an after taste that is sweet and lemony.Pretty nice brew IMO,light and mildly flavorful and some what refreshing.Well worth trying again.

tobacco, dust, coors. even the wheat body expectations were washed out. Hmmm...

Bottle. Pale, almost no head. Adjunctive, grainy, slightly wheaty toward the finish. Unremarkable.

Bleh. So very light in color, hazy but less than pear juice. They can perhaps be forgiven. Mild aroma, and what is there is macro-like. Flat, plain flavor without the levels of citric zing or wheaty charm that is necessary to drive this. Unqualified failure, in my opinion.
