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.

BBB63 (5945) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle and served in my smaller Ayinger hefe glass: Pours a tad hazy with a lovely frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma comes right out a says HOPS HERE! Resiny, grapefruit, mango, hint of leafy dank as it warms along with pale malt and wheat. The taste is moderately acidic and quite fruity over a soft layer of wheat and biscuit malt. Slight pepper and clove on the finish along with a touch of metallic notes. Overall this is more akin to an IPA than a Wheat Ale as we normally know it. Either way I found it quite enjoyable and quite refreshing. I need more!

Beaver (1264) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours very hazy straw yellow with a huge rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is wheaty malts, tropical fruits and some piney, lightly resiny, hops.

The flavor is slightly sweet wheaty malts and some tropical fruits with decent piney / resiny bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, an interesting hoppy wheat.

tmoreau (2288) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Shared 12 oz. bottles poured to snifters by TAPS at Lunar Brewing Co.. Showed a yellow/gold color with silky white head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The aroma was strongly resinous, grapefruit, lemon, with some tropical hints. The flavor was similar but less expressive, adding low spicy hop, light wheat, with a light to medium body, and a lightly dry and crisp finish to complement it’s sessionability.

ryecatcher (720) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Pours a hazy straw color with a thin white head, decent retention and lacing. Nose doesn’t offer much (kinda pissy to be honest) but mouth is a different story. Crispy dry with some citrus (lemon, grapefruit) and piney notes, medium body and some bread towards the end. Reminds me a bit of Gumballhead, but definitely its own brew. Once again, yay BBC.

fidelis83 (1901) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Pours a milky yellow-gold with a 2 finger, frothy white head. Aroma is full of citrus (smells very cascade-like) hops, a little pine, dusty wheat, fruity notes and a light bready note. Flavor is sweetish wheat and lemon up front, some mineral, bready yeast, sweet hay and leafy citrusy hops. Sweet grapefuit, dough and lemon to the finish. Much less hoppy in flavor than aroma, with very little bitterness. Palate is a little heavy for a 5.5% beer with such a crisp aroma and flavor, add the overly light (for this beer), a little bit of chalkiness and it really does a bit of a disservice to the other components, keeping the beer from being as light and refreshing as it should be. Pretty nice wheat ale all things considered, but the aroma really sets you up for an experience that the beer just doesn’t match otherwise.

OD40oz (773) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - OCT 4, 2012
This was a little too thick on the palate for me. It was good but it was nowhere near Boulevards normal wheat beer. Not bad but nothing to write home about.

Caytinator (894) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 3, 2012
12oz bottle. They were all sold out at Flying Saucer, I see why...it’s awesome! Stable, 1/2-finger head. Hoppy AND wheaty; I’ll buy THIS hybrid! Naysayers begone - this is way better than it sounds, amazing even. Kind of like salted caramel - it sounds funny, but tastes delicious. It’s exactly what it advertises, and he excels at it. Great full body, medium hoppyness and sweet wheatness!

ttoadee (609) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Cloudy yellow pour, big foamy head. Piney hops in the nose along with fresh biscuits. Medium sweet. Toast and grapefruits on the way out, with a slap of hop bitterness. Ends a little awkward. Most surely a hybrid style, different but drinkable.
