Beer Review: Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat Beer

I love many wheat beers from the area where Boulevard brews. I haven't yet had a bad wheat beer that I have even traded for. I found this fancy aluminum bottle/can at By The Bottle for about $2.50 that I can recall. The 16oz. package looks much like a 12oz. package in its glass form. But still though.. that's only $2.50 for a pint. Seems spendy, but then not.. at the same time :/

Appearance: (4.0)
- Nice cloudy unfiltered creamed corn yellow. Light zesty orange hue sits beneath a quickly fizzling white fluffy finger of head. Leaves just some scattered dusting about the surface.

Smell: (4.0)
- Nice fruity and zesty smelling wheat beer. I immediately want to start chugging this bad boy just based on the wonderful smell. Light sweet malts, lightly bready and biscuity.. somewhat grassy and earthy. Fluid hides much of it all though.

Taste: (4.5)
- Wonderful citrus and zesty fruity wheat. Light sweet wheat malts, light honey, and bready character. Lemon zest, grassy and herbal. Certainly a refreshing sessionable brew. Very good and solid.

Mouth Feel: (4.0)
- Light bodied, slightly creamy, and certainly mouth watering. Slightly drying and a touch chewy. Overall this beer has some great qualities.

Overall: (4.0)
- Certainly a stand-out wheat. Light bready and zesty this one is. Very refreshing while still having some great flavor. I love the packaging and the fact that the aluminum bottle is a full pint. The price was a bit steep for my taste, but it doesn't affect my judging of what's inside.

A- / 4.22

(BeerAdvocate.com Rating Scale)

(I had once previously rated this beer, and gave it a 3.98. I think it is a much better and more fresh of a beer now. Before I had to trade for the beer in a regular bottle. Now I can get it locally in a full pint aluminum bottle.)
