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.

A nice crisp taste with hoppy aromas. White head and semi clear yellow body. Definitely worth trying if you come across it.

Bottle. Hoppy and cereal grain aroma. Malty taste with a citrus after taste. Very nice finish. This is a good beer for a cookout. Will have more.

December 23rd, 2013 - Boulevard’s 80 Acre Hoppy Wheat brings a lot of vivaciousness to a style that often sits and stews in its own, mulling, lazy flavors. The aroma begins with fruits and esters, replete with bananas, and even a touch of a grapefruit. On reflection, this makes a great deal of sense, given the title and style. Also, somewhere on the periphery of the scent, is a little white grape, giving a bit of a boost to acidity and brightness. The flavor is wheaty, but I note this in my notes as "wheaty?" The grain touch is lighter than I might have expected, replaced with a custardy banana mush, a touch of pear, and a nice-fruity hops balance. I actually prefer this over the usual cracked wheat flavor, though it might buck style guides.

Sample at the Ace of Cups Moonlight Beer Fest on 10/3/15. Pours clear yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of creamy wheat and lemon. Creamy wheat flavor with a grainy, old hop finish.

I really liked this beer a lot. Pours a nice hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. Smells of citrus, pine, grass and some kind of fruit........pineapple, maybe? Slightly creamy body, almost like a Hefeweizen. A little bit of bitterness shining through at the end. Superbly balanced.

Citrus orange zest hoppy goodness in a beautiful bed of wheat tartness. Hoppy summer in a bottle. Give me another. I love this style and this is one of the many reasons why.

Bottle to pint. Cloudy yellow pour with a thin white head. Minimal lacing. Orange peel, citrus hops, and some wheat in the aroma. Flavor is similar - fairly hoppy. Dry mouthfeel.

skmikeg (1472) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Pours bright light orange with a thin white head with just a little lacing. Aroma is of citrus, wheat bread, tropical fruits, some light sweet malts, and some floral hops. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a very tasty wheat that very refreshing and drinkable.

Hazy blonde. Thin, bubbly head. Fruity, hoppy, orangey aroma. Light bitterness, orangey, and a touch of mango hop, with a solid pale malt background.
