With roots in two of todayís 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.

Tasted at the Boulevard Tasting Room after a tour on December 17. Iím not a huge fan of the Boulevard Wheat, but this is a brew I can get behind. The extra hoppiness in this gives it a bigger flavor, while not going overboard on the bitterness. I canít wait until Boulevard actually releases this beer.

Multiple samples at the Boulevard tasting room, post tour. Tour guide was good enough to supply me with a full pour! Pour is a cloudy hazed yellowish white with a smallish white head. Aroma is bright tropical pineapple fruit hop, orange fruit sweetness, along with the malt wheat, finishing with further sweetness. Taste is the bright tropical fruit hops, orange citrus fruit, both of which are balanced nicely with the wheat and malt. The finish reintroduces the sweetness of the nose. Fresh and vibrant, really nicely balanced. Palate is light to medium bodied, nice scrubbing active carbonation and a dry finish. High level of drink-ability. Nice, fun, alive interpretation of a classic.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Draft. Poured a hazy light orange color. The head was sticky and white with great retention and lacing. Light flowery hop, baking spices, and wheat in the nose. Light bodied and slightly sweet. Flower blossom up front with notes of vanilla cake and subdued butter in the middle. A bit of caramel emerged after the finish. Nice.

tap at brewery-this was the only beer they had on tap that i had never had. pours hazy dark yellow light orange with a soapy fluffy white head. nose is very floral like a flower garden lite bright citrus lovely flavors are lite wheat grains with a splash of hops not much in terms of bitterness but must have had a ton of dry hopping. really crisp and clean with some tartness on the finish. a very tasty experiment that more breweries need to make a standard (as in replace their wheat beer).

Very cloudy lemon yellow with a green tint. Medium aroma: lemon, wheat, a little muskly. Medium palate, a little flat but not bad, wheat & lemon. Not great, but as far as options go in Muscatine, IA, not bad at all

Tap at Iowa City Brewfest. Gorgeous fresh hop aroma, lightly grassy and full of fresh citrus hops, light wheat malt character, just fantastic. Pours cloudy straw/golden color with a thick white head, good retention and plenty of lacing. Flavor just as impressive as the nose; great fresh hops, cut hay, citrus, wheat, very crisp throughout, faint tartness in the background. Sticky, fresh floral hops are really well done in this brew. Light body, medium/high carbonation. Incredibly flavorful and drinkable for a 5% abv beer, this will certainly be one of my go-to beers if/when it comes out in bottles, delicious!

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 --Tasting room hoppy wheat test brew on tap at blvd tap room. A solid hopped wheat with a bit more lemon citrus flavor I would prefer this to wheat most any day. Bottle pours clear hazy pale yellow with off white head. Fruity tropical earthy herbal smell. Semi sweet bright lemon hop flavor along with minor tropical pineapple, mango, green apples, very light wheat grain spice but had the unfiltered filling grain attribute. Lovely carbonation, filling for a lighter beer. The tap is very close and very solid.

Tiny sample at 2011 Parkville Brewfest on 4/30. You crazy kids keep adding festival brews! Not too dissimilar from itís unfiltered parent brew, cloudy gold/straw color with a thin white head (kinda hard to form in a 3-4oz sampler) with a faint nose of green wheat. Flavor and finish are kicked up from the original unfiltered with a sharp hint of lemongrass (or just lemons) as the citrusy hops. Finish is more bitter than the original, as expected, but not what you would call a seriously hopped pale ale...just a nice twist on the usual wheaty summer classic for Kansas Citians.
