Boulevard Brewing Company Ginger-Lemon Radler

Posted: September 30, 2015 in Boulevard Brewing Company, Fruit/Vegetable Beer, Reviews

The next brewery we went to was Austin Street. This brewery wasn’t nearly as crowded as the other two. As like the other ones, there was no indoor seating space. We got a few samples and made it the plastic chairs outside. They had giant Jenga, but it was on a very wobbly plastic table, so we didn’t partake. Their beers were fine, but nothing I would rush back to have. After that, we were on our way to the last brewery of the day…

ABV: 4.1%

Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Boulevard Ginger-Lemon Radler is a zesty, refreshing take on a tradition of mixing beer with soda or lemonade to create a light, thirst-quenching beverage ideal for warm weather. Radler (literally, ‘cyclist,’) takes its name from active German sportsmen of a hundred years ago, but our version tastes just as good even if you do nothing more strenuous than lifting it to your lips.”

Random: This is beer review #2000!

This beer poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated instantly. It left no lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy, lemon yellow with moderate carbonation visible. The nose had pungent ginger with lemonade. The taste was no better than the nose. Ginger came through initially and then artificial lemonade. It was slightly tart at the end, but this beer was just downright unpleasant. The body was thin with light carbonation. The finish was quick with the same artificial lemon taste. The price on this was $1.50 per can ($.12 per ounce). This beer was just not to my taste, at all. I struggled to take a few sips of this, luckily I poured it for Val, so I didn’t have to finish it. I won’t be having this again.
