I bought a sealed 6pack and low and behold, when I opened it, the bottles said best by 02/09/08. Here's hoping...
It pours a clear medium amber brown with a small head of foam with some lacing.
The smell has some graininess to it along with a faint clove and some earthiness.
The taste has notes of wheat, lemon, some clove, a touch of banana, and it has an earthy finish.
It has a light mouthfeel and the carbonation is high.
Well, nothing special about this well past best by date sample but it's not all that bad so I might try revisiting it in the future. Most of Boulevard's offerings are *very* solid.

Originally rated on 9/11/08. My second from the sampler 12 pack, Lunar pours a nice looking deep brown smiliar to slow brewed ice tea. A decent head, but small considering its bottle conditioned, hardly any lace. Aroma of banana and clove was nice. Flavor of malts and not much else. Mouthfeel was good. Overall not much to write home about."

12 oz bottle shared by me with Tmoney99 and shigadeyo from backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor had wheat malt, banana, mild berry character, bready, light spice, yeast. Decent enough. ads135 (5207) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 27, 2012
This was the only Boulevard beer that I saw people actively avoid. To call it a dunkelweizen is a affront to the style. A bit of dark fruit, some raisin, lots of bread with a hint of brown sugar, but mostly understated, too much so.
