Background:
This is another gift from my friend Gene. Gene has been spot on with his last recommendations so I can’t wait to see what this one is like.

Review:
The beer pours a hazy yellow straw with a bright white head.

The nose is modest with light wheat malt aromas along with some grassy notes.

Wow what a clean and refreshing first sip.

The taste starts out with a light malt sweetness up front followed by a very refreshing effervescence as this refreshing ale washes over the tongue in the middle of the sip. The back-end could not be easier drinking with an effortless swallow. The finish is modest but all so refreshing with pale wheat malt flavors and just a touch of citrus. There is very little of a final aftertaste just a hint of wheat malt and citrus.

This is going to be a short review. This is so easy drinking and refreshing it’s almost gone.

Well, I obviously did more drinking than writing on this one. This refreshing ale is gone already.

B+ | Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat is a very refreshing pale wheat ale that is smooth and easy drinking with a touch of citrus and spice.
