COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a cloudy pale gold wheat color with a nice white head. Aroma of lemongrass, floral hops, and wheat. Taste is really great, makes me forgot that itís below zero outside and takes me to summer with a floral, lemon, and crisp finishing tatse. Love this beer !

Having this one at Rustico on draft. Straw colored and foamy, nice wheat flavor. I am not sensing the hoppiness, maybe some citrus, very little. Finished clean, refreshing.

bottle - Pours a cloudy straw color with a large off-white head. Ith as a very grapefruit forward aroma. The flavor has mild to moderate hops bitterness with wheat malt and a bit of citrus. Itís light bodied and the malt is bland. Underwhelming.

Bottle from a 12 pk assortment. Pours a cloudy straw yellow with an average white head. Taste is a combination of a Kolsch, IPA and traditional wheat beer. Very crisp and refreshing however will not overwhelm you with a complex flavor palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Cloudy golden pour with white head. Citrus and floral aromas lead the way with undertones of yeasty wheat bread dough. Refreshing taste with medium sweetness and just enough hops to keep it interesting. Crisp, clean, delicious. I donít normally care for wheat beers but this one is spectacular.

Wow! Picked up one as part of a make your own 6-pack. Now I wish I had grabbed a few more. A very good mix of a wheat and IPA. A hoppy, lemon aroma, with a light golden color. A crisp, clean flavor. Would make for a great summer brew. I could throw many of these back at a time.

Cloudy, yellow/gold appearance with an average size white head and light lacing. Aroma of citrus, mainly orange and lemon. Hoppy taste is balanced nicely by tart, grainy flavors. Decently carbonated, medium bodied mouthfeel. Finish hangs around for awhile. Interesting and well executed.

12 oz bottle Christmas beer 2013 The wheat beer poured a cloudy golden color with no head and no lacing. The aroma of floral hops and lemon. The taste of light citrus and peach. This is not a robust beer. The medium body beer had soft carbonation. The finish was dry with no bitterness.

Tap at GingerMan. Pours a cloudy golden yellow color, like a wit. Aroma of hops and slight wit. Tastes slightly of lemon? Strong hops, but not overbearing. Sweeter than your standard IPA, so definitely different.
