Boulevard Entwined Ale

This is a beer brewed with grape juice from Boulevard Brewing Company of Kansas City, Missouri. It is part of their Backroads series, meant to be off the beaten path brews for both brewer and drinker. I believe it is the first release in the series. 

The beer pours gleaming golden in color. There is over an inch of white, foamy head, but it does not last terribly long. The aroma is white wine, grape juice, over toasted grain. The taste follows the aromas directly. It is moderately carbonated and drinks easy, but does have a smooth element to the mouthfeel. I did think this would be more flavorful, but what is there is pleasant enough. It drinks a lot like one of the very early wine coolers before they started adding all the fruit flavors, but is a tad more beery than winey.  And shouldn’t we all be?
