The aroma was not inviting as it was reminding me of the familiar "C" hops and I was bracing myself for another American wheat beer with too bitter of a finish. Upon tasting, however, I was more than pleasantly surprised at its greatness. It turns out, that all the hoppiness is in the aroma, which is just fine with me. Nice, medium bodied, pale gold color with some haze and a snow white frothy head. Has more to do with Witbier than Hefeweizen in my opinion, as there’s a delicate touch of acidity here that wouldn’t exist in most American wheat beers. Enveloped in mild aromas of lemon and grapefruit zest. A very pleasant beer to sip on in any moment or season.

12 oz. bottle pours a hazy golden color with medium white head and some lacing. Aroma has lemon, pineapple, grass, and perhaps banana. Taste is bitter. Body is medium with lively carbonation and an almost creamy mouthfeel. It seems more like a German Hefeweizen to me. I wasn’t expecting all the lemon, but enjoyed it nonetheless.

Bottle. Hoppy and cereal grain aroma. Malty taste with a citrus after taste. Very nice finish. This is a good beer for a cookout. Will have more.

December 23rd, 2013 - Boulevard’s 80 Acre Hoppy Wheat brings a lot of vivaciousness to a style that often sits and stews in its own, mulling, lazy flavors. The aroma begins with fruits and esters, replete with bananas, and even a touch of a grapefruit. On reflection, this makes a great deal of sense, given the title and style. Also, somewhere on the periphery of the scent, is a little white grape, giving a bit of a boost to acidity and brightness. The flavor is wheaty, but I note this in my notes as "wheaty?" The grain touch is lighter than I might have expected, replaced with a custardy banana mush, a touch of pear, and a nice-fruity hops balance. I actually prefer this over the usual cracked wheat flavor, though it might buck style guides.

I really liked this beer a lot. Pours a nice hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. Smells of citrus, pine, grass and some kind of fruit........pineapple, maybe? Slightly creamy body, almost like a Hefeweizen. A little bit of bitterness shining through at the end. Superbly balanced.

Citrus orange zest hoppy goodness in a beautiful bed of wheat tartness. Hoppy summer in a bottle. Give me another. I love this style and this is one of the many reasons why.
