Lemon yellow pour with a half inch head. Aroma is of lemon zest and citrus hops. Definite wheat flavor up front, with a nice creamy body. Hops come through towards the middle with a lot of lemon, orange and grapefruit. Smooth finish, lingering citrus and just slightly bitter. Tasty, very well balanced and pretty unique. woodzgud (25) - USA - JUL 7, 2013
On tap at Taco Mac. 20 oz pour. Cloudy, straw color typical of a wheat beer. A good bit of hops, like a pale ale or even some IPAs, and very easy to drink. The perfect summer beer for an IPA lover. EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Tart lemon aroma and flavor, with peppery and herbal character. Pretty dry flavor; a little sweeter in finish, dry again in aftertaste. Nice biscuit/cereal malt flavor that comes out more in aftertaste. TimsRatings (421) - - JUL 5, 2013

Poured a cloudy orange. Fruity aroma. Fruity taste with a touch of tartness. This is a fusing of a summer wheat beer with a hoppy beer, but the mark is missed. Not sure if the missed mark is due to the nature of the combination, or this one attempt.

Pours a nice orange with white head. Smell is fresh and bright clean hops. Taste is bright clean hops. Crisp. Not much of a wheaty flavor. Would like a bit more wheat but still a nice beer.

From bottle. Pours hazy straw colored with medium white head. Smell is citrusy and hoppy...makes sense. Taste is more like a little more like an American Wheat but nicely balanced I. Sweetness with the spice and bitterness from the hops. It's like a not as good Gumballhead; but still very noteworthy. This beer is very refreshing and nice tart finish.

Hazy golden with a thick white head. Bright lemony aroma. Crisp and wheaty with a light lemony hop flavor. Clean and refreshing

Bottle. Pours a hazy wheat beer yellow. Nice wheat aroma with some citrusy hops on it. Flavor matches the aroma, really quite good and very refreshing. Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle. Received this in a trade as an extra, and was incredibly impressed with how tasty this was. Wish I could have more of this, but no distro in my area. Perfect hop/wheat balance. ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JUN 30, 2013
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy golden color. A large, foamy white head is formed with three fingers and a soft texture. It fades moderately quickly, and leaves spotty lacing down the glass.
S: There is a decent amount of grapefruit, orange, grass, and lemon notes that betrays a rock-solid hop profile. What I’m not quite so sure about is the faint phenolic touch I also pick up. It sadly detracts from an otherwise very good aroma.
T: The flavor reveals lush citrusy notes throughout, and even an initial grapefruit-esque juiciness. It finishes with light touches of grass and lemon, and the dodgy phenols I picked up in the nose is kept in control here. Really likable if a touch mild.
M: I like how lush and creamy this is, helping to keep carbonation in check - and making it a bit syrupy at times. Aside from me wanting a drier finish, this has a very nice feel and great drinkability.
O: The more I have from Boulevard, the more I grow to like them. When done right, this is a style I really enjoy, and this beer in particular is a success. I’d gladly make this a regular in my fridge.
