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.

Im not much for wheat beers, but really enjoying these hopped up types. Pretty hazy gold pour with a large wiezen head. IPA aroma. Refreshing, lemoin and grapefruit flavors. Good summer beer.

Bottle. Piney, floral citrus hops aroma. Hazy golden yellow with a moderate white head. Lemon, pine, floral citrus hops and light grainy wheat malt flavor. Light crisp body, lively carbonation. Really nice, well-balanced American wheat.

Just as they advertised - IPA with a wheat. You have the lemon characteristic and finish of a wheat with the hoppy grapefruit characteristics of an IPA at the forefront. I just wish it blended more evenly.

While not considered a "summer" beer...this beer would make a great hot afternoon beverage. Great hoppy aroma, very refreshing taste! Great addition to the already good Boulevard lone of beers.

I wish this tasted as good as it smells. Boulevard needs to turn up the flavor and bring up the ABV.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle into weizen glass, slightly hazy orange-yellow pour with nice fluffy, lasting white head, streaming carbonation. Aroma brought notes of fruity peach, pear, white grape, some crackery biscuit, bread notes, hints of grass, spicy hops, slightly floral as well, also adds a touch of citrus with a bitter orange peel. Taste is pretty nice but a bit muddled, some nice grapefruit, orange, leading into some crackery and biscuity sweet malts, touch of sweet white fruit in there, some white grape, slight hint of grass, finishing spicy, slightly sweet, slightly bitter. Very different from the aroma, but pretty tasty overall.

Ericular (716) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2013 Pours a light hazy wheat with healthy head and great lacing. Aroma is wheat, citrus zest, and honey. Taste is a balance of wheat and honey up front, a hoppy kick in the middle, and a clean, mild aftertaste. Lively palate, crisp and refreshing overall. Not bad!

This beer is a great mix of a hoppy IPA smell and taste up front, balanced with a nice toasted wheat finish The finish is mild and over quickly, quick enough where some of the citrus comes back around. Very drinkable and refreshing. 7+3+8+4+17=3.9

Pours a cloudy bright yellow-gold with a thick white head. Aroma is all citrusy, grassy hops, very nice. Flavor is light and fresh, citrus and flower and grass again, with a nice, light wheat undertone. Palate is also light and fresh, not overly carbonated but still light enough to be refreshing. This is a truly excellent new style of beer that combines the very best of IPA and American wheat beer. One of the best and most refreshing summer beers available.

For me a very citrus-y style beer. I expected the beer to be rather bitter with all the references to hops however the bitterness was pretty minor. I did get a sort of "lemon" flavor while my wife and sister in law said it was grapefruit. I am not a fan of citrus so it was not one I would buy again but better than I anticipated.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2012
12oz bottle from Binny’s Plainfield. Pours a cloudy, yellow-gold colored body with an inch thick, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is lemon hops with some florals, light pines, and grass. Crisp, grainy wheats with some notes of tropical fruits and grapefruits. Flavor is similar. Light and clean, crisp wheats with a light grain and a touch of sweetness. Real nice lemon quality to the hops with some florals, tropical fruits, a light pine and grass, and a touch of grapefruit. Finishes crisp and clean with a light bitterness before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Light body with a medium carbonation. Overall, this is a great beer. Not a hop bomb like Gumballhead, but really pleasantly hopped with a nice lemon and light tropical fruitiness and a crisp, clean wheat. Big fan of this one.
