COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With roots in two of today’s most popular brewing styles, 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat Beer is the result of careful cultivation by our brewers and cellarmen. Their efforts to craft a hybrid yielded a bumper crop of flavor; a delightfully distinctive ale with the aroma of an IPA and the refreshing taste of a wheat beer.

rbrazell (1458) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle from Sweetgrass Dairy Cheese Shop. Cloudy golden pour with a soapy white head. Citrusy, lemon grassy hops in the nose with some grainy wheat in the background. Crisp, crackling wheat grains in the flavor with a abundance of lemony citrus and piney hops. Easy drinking and very refreshing. Good stuff.

blipp (5680) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Citric and grassy hops, light pale malts, light wheaty notes, some faint fruity sweetness, and a hint of pine in the finish. Good stuff.

sawbuck (253) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Nice aroma of pine, hops with a hint of sweet dough. Nice straw yellow color with a thick white head that holds. Interesting combo of sweet wheat and bitter hops all at once. Sweetness is medium with hints of lemon, and bitterness is on the low end. Finishes with a mellow bitterness that lingers nicely. Average carbonation, Light body...nice change of pace for a summer beer. For an average beer drinker, hoppiness may be over bearing but for an aficionado, its nice.

Very interesting beer. The floral and citrus combined makes for a very interesting and tasty beer from Boulevard.

maekchu (1777) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle. Pine, sour fruit, cat piss. Foggy light lemon juice color, 2-cm head. Tangy rounded hops in initial / goes a bit cat pissy in mid / slight cookieish sweetness and very light hop traces in final. Thin body. Very tasty. A session wheat for hop heads.

BOSSbrewer (1322) - Arkansas, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Very nice. Good hop balance. And the wheatiness comes through nicely. Rated this beer using a different program and unfortunately I'm not able to transfer my comments here.

brison (44) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 16, 2013
A near perfect beer in my opinion. Large mouth feel yet still has the precise bitterness of the hops. Pours a hazy yellow/gold. taste is of slightly bitter citrus and floral. Full palate leaving you wanting more. Will definitely be a repeat buy.

DCLawyer (1313) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2013 Sampler at RFD. Draft->mini lager. Hazy yellow with small white head. Spicy, with floral and grassy hops. Surprising and very good. The best wheat ale I can recall trying.

Emeister84 (768) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Aromas of grassy, spicy, and herbal hops, and mild cereal. Mostly clear, brilliant gold, with a fully lasting, pillowy white head. Dry and perfectly balanced. Light bodied with refreshing carbonation, and a very clean finish.
