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.

BMan1113VR (7788) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 13, 2013
On tap at BTBF. Pours with a hazed yellow hued body and a white head. Aromas are grainy, toasty and floral with a large citrusy and lemony hop component. Light honey, estery. Flavors are bready, toasted malt, clean, dry, low bitterness with lots of citrus and floral hop flavors. Medium carbonation. Quite drinkable.

This definitely leans more towards the IPA side of the equation. Lots of citrusy hops and just a wee bit of wheat character. Some nice grassy flavors, as well. Simple and tasty, and well made. Thanks to theisti for the trade.

wxman (1340) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Draught at Snookers. The name says it all - - a hoppy wheat beer (Belgian, in my view). Pours a pale cloudy yellow with a thin small bead white head that only coats the surface, but stays throughout. Aroma is citrus and spice, and the taste is like a Hoegaarden with some American dry hops thrown in after the boil. Very nice and refreshing, but the IBU certainly seems higher than 20.

Hair6a11 (1268) - Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle: pour is cloudy, medium gold in this glass, with a frothy, fine bubbled white head here. Retention is average, with some spotting present. The nose is lemon zest, tropicals, and light pine. The flavor profile is more citrus, bittering american hops, while it slides into wheat. I thought it could use a heavier malt profile for balance, but they were going for a summer drinker, and were pretty successful overall

rubbishystuff (1756) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2013
From BandC. Actually an American wheat ale that I like and well popular with the missus too. Lemony zestiness of a wit with a little hefeweizen thrown in and fresh but now overwhelming hops. Could have been a mess but was not at all. Serving: Bottle

TizzleJizzle (529) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle. Hoppy aroma. Slightly unfiltered golden yellow color, thin white top, lacing. Floral, grass, spruce, citrus, orange, and lemon zest. Lively carbonation, medium body. Near perfect balance of an IPA and a hefeweizen. Major props!

Theydon_Bois (6994) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle big thanks to Wigman DW, split split on the 300kph tasting on Train 9116 to Brussels, 26/04/13. Hazed orange/yellow with a thin off white head. Nose is ripe orange, citrus zest, peachy tones, hops, sugars, light caramel. Taste comprises hops, peach, tropical fruit sundae, caramel malt. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet finish with some background hops. Decent enough fayre.

radagast83 (4126) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2013
12oz bottle. Poured a real hazy yellow color with a nice, thick white head. Aroma was a grainy, wheat note, with some light citrus and malt notes. Flavor was notes of some wheat notes, hops and malts. Flavor was plenty of hops, citrus. Very interesting. Props for originality. Enjoyed.

BroSpud (1596) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAY 2, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy yellowish white with a white head. Looks like a wheat beer but tastes like an IPA. Nice combination of wheat and hops, very refreshing.

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle at beer study. Pours light hazy orange golden with a frothy white head. Nose is dirty, soil earthy hops, some pine resin. Cereal, light biscuit, sweeter malt, light spice. Solid, but like most boulevard (for me), forgettable.
