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.

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 (1825) - , 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 (4009) - Durham, 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.

emacgee (4299) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2013
Pours a pale cloudy lemon rind yellow with one to two fingers of sticky white head. Weird nose, odd cross between hop resin and wheat yeast lends an overripe/rotten fruit/citrus character. Bad oranges. Some raw bread dough shows and overly yeasty notes. Same in the flavor. Mildly vegetal/creamy corn and doughy. Hops get weird in the flavor too. Bomb.

EtTuCthulhu (1321) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 28, 2013
The aroma reminds you of citrus hops and sweet bread yeast, and the appearance fuses a hazy golden color with a large white and frothy head. The taste is mildly bitter, slightly sweet, and a touch sour, and the palate combines a medium body, slick texture, an abrupt finish, and a soft carbonation.

A decent wheat beer with at is more hoppy than wheat. Pours a bright yellow like most wheat beers do. Smells fruity and is smooth to the taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Annapolis 5K Beer Run. Pours bright gold with average, fizzy white head. Aroma is grass, biscuit malt, light citrus, and some floral hops. Flavor is good balance of bready malts and fresh hops with supporting light fruit esters; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

AirForceHops (4166) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 24, 2013
12 oz. bottle thanks to queenholly. My weizen glass shows bright yellow color with tons of foamy head. Sheets of head retention down the glass. Great nose of lemons and yeasty wheat notes. The flavor is really flavorful. Grapefruit rind, Earthy yeasty wheat with a medium bitterness from citrus hops in the finish. Just enough malt to balance the beer and not have the hops over-power the wheat. Overall, I enjoy how the hops complement the wheat and don’t dominate. A session beer I could drink lots of and really damn refreshing. Also a beer I will buy more of. For me that speaks for itself!

Pours a three finger white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Pale, almost clear amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Strong nose of pine hops, flavor is a balance of pine hops and caramel malt. Decent wheat. $2.19 for a 12oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, MA.
