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.

Hazy yellow with a medium-sized, bright white head. Moderate spruce up front in the nose turns pleasantly fruity (peaches) and a touch yeasty with very mild banana phenols. The flavor is a rather nutty wheat with zesty orange and grapefruit hoppiness. The nutty, cracker-reminiscent wheat partnered with the moderate bitterness is quite delicious and something I haven’t experienced to quite this degree before. Body is slightly sticky with light yet sharp carbonation. This greatly exceed my expectations.

Pretty great beer! Love the hop addition to the wheat! Starts out with wheat and then has a fruity hop finish.

Looks like a wheat. The hippiness is very much like a wheat beer with a lemon already added. Thin creamy head that dissipates. Not much lacing. But all in all, a very good blend oh wheat and hop. Which seems like what blvd was trying to achieve. Very drinkable, but not sure i would seek it out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottlevat Big Muddy in Alton. This poured hazy and kind of yellowish. A hoppy aroma withcitrus and light pine. In the flavor the wheat is tasted and it is probably their wheat beer as the base. Hops are nice and are as the aroma would indicate. The finish is a bit of brett. A nice beer.

12oz bottle from a sixer I picked up for $6.99, nice price. Bright yellow-orange color, sort of hazy appearance. Sticky lace, short head. Hoppy, citrusy smell, faintest hint of wheat and crackers. Flavor is slightly citrusy, hoppy, more faint wheat. I’d say this is more hop dominated but its not a hop bomb like say Lil’ Sumpin Sumpin. Its quite easy to drink so Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-26-2012 23:53:53

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a white head and lacing. It has a fairly rich citrus and pine hops and wheat aroma. It has a flavor that is balanced hops up front with a smooth body and crisp aftertaste. It's definitely one of my new favorite light beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finger of head. Cloudy, pale straw color. Smells like spruce and citrus. Like a Christmas tree with lemons on it. Interesting taste. I like it. Lots of citrus bitterness with an underlying soft wheat flavor. Low carbonation, medium and crisp body. The taste is pretty amazing.
