Review: Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat

Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat
4.4% ABV
Boulevard Brewing Co., Kansas City, MO
12 oz bottle
Served in Dogfish Head Signature Glass
Date on bottle: Best by 11/29/12
Reviewed on 10/19/12 

This wheat beer pours a hazy gold with a good white head that quickly dissipates.  Moderate carbonation.  Mild lacing.

Smell has wheat, hops, citrus, yeast, hops, mild floral and spice notes.

Taste has wheat, bread, citrus, yeast, hops, mild watery floral, hint of ginger.  Only some mild differentiation from the smell.

On the palate, it's smooth, mild touch of dryness, a bit thin through the middle. Present flavors are decently balanced and not overwhelming on the palate.

Overall, this is a moderate tasting, somewhat thin wheat beer with some decent if underwhelming flavors.  Overall, fairly mild, easy to drink, but not something to have if seeking bold flavors.

My score: 82
