Boulevard Brewing Co Fling Gin and Tonic
What the brewers say
Made with botanical gin, neutral spirits, lime, natural flavors, and tonic.
What our panel thought
Juniper-botanical aroma with some underlying citrus. Prickly tonic with nice sweetness, but not much acidity to balance—a bit cloying. Flavor balances lemon-lime soda and juniper. Gin is simple and uninteresting, but the drink hits the numbers. Appealing enough for beer drinkers. Nailed it.
What our editors thought
Clean, crisp nose with light floral-botanical notes of lavender, juniper, lemon-lime, and a bit of juniper branch. The sip slides off the rails as stark and drying gin collides with tonic bitterness and an overly sweet fruity element that lingers.
