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 into a pint glass. The 80-Acre pours a cloudy golden yellow with a thick frothy ivory head that lasts and lasts. The aroma is citrus, wheat, floral and lemon. The flavor is lemon, citrus, floral and a bit of wheat. This is described as a hoppy wheat beer, but the hops are more prominent than I anticipated (not a bad thing). The beer is full of lively carbonation. Overall this is a very nice beer and one of the better wheat beers I’ve had.

Hoppy wheats if that is a word. Tiny plantable banana aroma with hop addition. Refreshing crisp wheat and flavor. Could have been nightmare but really good.

Faint zesty citrus with a lemon and wheat infusion. Soft bitterness sweet lingering finish. Not hoppy at all taste more like a sweet wheat. Probably perfect for a hot summer day.

Bottle. Looks like pineapple juice. Tropical fruit Citrus aroma with light pepper spice and wheat/bready grains. The taste adds a big lemon pucker note with some grassy hops. Light crisp feel with high carb. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
