In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Boulevard Brewing Company Unfiltered Wheat

Aroma: “The first impression is of grassy and herbal hops, but clove, plastic, smoke, and slightly medicinal phenols followed. A grainy wheat-bread aroma, with a very German hefeweizen yeast, and lemon and citrus in the background.”

Flavor: “Lightly tart bready flavor, with a malty sweetness that gives a full-bodied texture. Cleaner phenols here, primarily clove and some smoke, with some bright banana. An earthy and herbal hops bitterness with a touch of citrus. Perhaps a little aggressive for a German-style wheat, but light for an American-style wheat.”

Overall: “A satisfying wheat that’s fairly balanced and very drinkable. The finish is somewhat harsh, but this can be a good thing since this style can be on the bland side. Dry and refreshing with hoppy citrus notes, and with the banana and bready malt, it was like liquid bread.”
