Everything I've had from Boulevard was great too. Its all over the place in Omaha. When I lived there I drank the wheat all the time. Thumbs up, definitely.

It almost seems like a knowledgable bartender thing. I never had a lemon in a wheat until I went to the World Cup in St Paul last year. I had that dumb look when asked if I wanted a lemon. I was never offered one before, so I thought it was a midwestern thing. Recently, I was given one in a pint at a pub in Manhattan. It complemented the flavors very nicely. Despite the taste, visually I do think it demasculates an otherwise fine pint.

FWIW, while I personally agree with many of you, politics have proven to be a subject best steered clear of in this forum. We have a great group of brewers and beer lovers here, and on that subject we can all get along. If we start talking politics (and believe me I *love* to talk politics), we really endanger that tone.

It's a semi-formal rule dating back to an argument I tried really hard not to get into with rightwingnut. At that point, rightwingnut, TxBrew and I all pretty much agreed that political chat could only end in tears. Anyway, I hope y'all agree that the chatter is best kept to beer or other non-inflamatory subjects like why George Lucas totally screwed the new Star Wars DVDs, unless anyone wants to PM me and we can chat John Rogers, Bolton, Rovegate or whatever you like.

Cheers

It's been around a long time. I have a friend who likes it. In Texas in the 1980's, they always served Tecate with a lemon. Personally, I believe that was to kill the bad taste of Tecate. I do not care for the weiss/lemon combonation. If I want lemons, I'll order a lemonade, thank you.

As for Boulevard Brewing - wish we could get their stuff here. I have to go to St. Louis. Damn shame; their stuff is great!

As for Bush, I heard someone compare him to Hilter on the news a few weeks ago. That's just not a fair comparison. Hilter was an excellent public speaker!

I appreciate this and agree. My apologies for referencing Bush. Did not really wish to steer towards political discussion.
