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.

Bottle. Pours a hazy wheat beer yellow. Nice wheat aroma with some citrusy hops on it. Flavor matches the aroma, really quite good and very refreshing.

Bottle. Received this in a trade as an extra, and was incredibly impressed with how tasty this was. Wish I could have more of this, but no distro in my area. Perfect hop/wheat balance.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a hazy golden color. A large, foamy white head is formed with three fingers and a soft texture. It fades moderately quickly, and leaves spotty lacing down the glass. S: There is a decent amount of grapefruit, orange, grass, and lemon notes that betrays a rock-solid hop profile. What I’m not quite so sure about is the faint phenolic touch I also pick up. It sadly detracts from an otherwise very good aroma. T: The flavor reveals lush citrusy notes throughout, and even an initial grapefruit-esque juiciness. It finishes with light touches of grass and lemon, and the dodgy phenols I picked up in the nose is kept in control here. Really likable if a touch mild. M: I like how lush and creamy this is, helping to keep carbonation in check - and making it a bit syrupy at times. Aside from me wanting a drier finish, this has a very nice feel and great drinkability. O: The more I have from Boulevard, the more I grow to like them. When done right, this is a style I really enjoy, and this beer in particular is a success. I’d gladly make this a regular in my fridge.

12oz bottle. hazy golden-orange body. Thin, soapy, white head. A pleasant, mild citrus touch on top of the classic wheat aroma. I guess I’d be comfortable to call this one a White IPA, based on the citrus edge, but this shows how that could be a slippery slope. Medium bodied, yeasty, fresh, clean. A great session beer.

On tap at Taco Mac. Cloudy pale yellow with lumpy white head. Excellent aroma of wheat and citrusy hops. Taste has a touch of sweetness with nice hops bitterness - grapefruit notes. Body is moderate and creamy. Enjoyed this beer, will have this again.

12oz bottle at DMK. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy, pine, some breadiness. Medium one the palate with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, cereal, some pine hops, with a clean bready finish. A nice wheat ale.

Wow! I really liked this. Aroma of banana and hops. Flavor is classic wheat with banana and spice followed up with a dose of hops. The hops do not overpower the wheat characteristics, but amp it up and sit in balance. Finishes dry. Very nice for a hot summer day.
