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.

This is a great new creation from Boulevard. It blends two great experiences seamlessly into one. The original aroma is of an IPA with a strong hop smell. It goes down smooth with an unfiltered wheat feel. A very nice blended style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a cloudy golden color with a nice thick head that lasts for a bit and ample lacing. Aroma of citrus, fruit, grainy and herbal. Taste of citrus, bit of pine, fruity, bit of pine and grain. Mild bitterness and finish is quite dry. Fairly light body, crisp and clean. Nice wheat beer with an attitude.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a very fluffy two finger white head. Excellent head retention along with ok lacing. The aroma is very fruity along with some bubblegum yeast esters. There is a really nice interplay between the fruit from the hops and the fruity from the yeast. The flavor continues this hoppy/yeasty mixture although I feel like the yeast is a little more prominent than in the aroma. Bitterness is on the lighter side with a slightly watery mouthfeel. Overall, a nice version of a lighter pale wheat ale. I would have liked to have had a little more in the way of hops but all in all, a nice refreshing and easy to drink beer.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped: 3205-1354-D-BEST BY 12/21/13. So I am reviewing it about a month after its expiration date. The color is a heady cloudy pale yellow with lively carbonation. The aroma is toasted biscuit, wheat, grass, honey, and mildly floral (which could be the same as "grass"). The body is light to medium with a smooth texture. The taste brings out the hops much more than the nose would suggest, which is what they were probably attempting to accomplish with this brew. Biscuits at first and pleasing hops at the end. Even a month after its expiration date it holds up well.

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.

illiniphil (131) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2014
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.
