The beer pours a deep copper and amber, glowing and gem-like burnt orange, turning to ruby. There is a half-inch of foamy, somewhat creamy light tan head. The aroma is sweet, yet tangy, fruity, cherries, herbal, caramel malt. The taste is malty, fruity, herbal, with the tang and earthiness of a Belgian type yeast. The bottle talks of piney hop notes. I guess the earthy, herbalness I am getting could be that, but it doesn’t have the zip of pine that I usually get when it is from hops. The beer drinks with that fine, softly intense carbonation of bottle conditioning. The finish is tangy, fairly dry, with a light to moderate bitterness. I have tried a lot of beers, and this one is hard to categorize. Frankly, I didn't enjoy it as much as I do most Boulevard releases.
