About this beer: Boulevard is a regional craft brewery located in Kansas City, Missouri. They were virtually unknown to me until this year’s American Craft Beer Fest. I didn’t get a chance to try the quad and was incredibly excited to get my hands on it. It clocks in at a healthy 10.5% ABV and is supposed to have hints of dates with a “sweet malt smell.”
In a nutshell: Boulevard continues to please with complex interesting beers, it’s a sweet beer with a great malt character.
Review: The beer pours an amazing brown red, with a healthy head that stays throughout. this isn’t an incredibly aromatic beer. The beer is sweet, fruity sweet. It is probably the date in the beer that does that, and there is a great malt character to it as well. It does however come off a little boozy with the 10.5% ABV. Still, the body is light, a little syrupy but overall on the lighter side. In the end it’s a beer I would try again in the mix pack but not my personal favorite style.
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars.
