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.

Pretty great beer! Love the hop addition to the wheat! Starts out with wheat and then has a fruity hop finish.

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

EithCubes (5104) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle, best by 04/23/15. Nose is lightly dusty, room-filling orange peel and light orange pith from strong and expressive hops. Pours bright golden with a large, jiggly cream head. Taste strong, orangey PNW hops, followed by smooth dry wheat (no slime here!), the finish light and gentle bread. Very light bitterness, touch of cracker, dry and yeasty on the whole with complex mineral character. Medium body, rounded and satisfying. Does refresh, and they’re getting a very distinctive, interesting taste out of the wheat, but the hops are too candyish for me and threaten to cloy an otherwise very dry beer -- I’m saying the execution is superb, but the recipe not to my preferences.

Great to finally see Boulevard in NJ, though!

DialSquare (3035) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2015
12oz bottle from a sampler 12 pack from Giant Eagle in Upper Arlington. Yellow gold pour with bubbly white head and soapy stick. Aroma of lemon citrus, herbal, wheat. Tastes of bready, juicy citrus, grass, hay, herbal. Not my favorite style, but this is a best of and just generally good.

TheCaptMatey (134) - Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Poured a hazy yellow colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of wheat grass, yeast, and citra hops. Flavor is lemon, wheat, and herbal spice. Medium bodied with medium carbonation ending in a crisp, soft bitter finish. Nice blend of hop and wheat characters.

This has so much flavor it’s ridiculous. The aroma is massive amounts of sweet yeast followed by lemon citrus hoppiness. Smells absolutely delicious. It’s super hazy from the unfiltered wheat which just adds to the overall complexity of this beer. I can’t imagine the balancing act it takes to make an essentially wheat ipa. So much lemon, citrus and that nice sweetness you’d expect from a wheat beer. Really refreshing and super drinkable, this one is a no brainer. Cheers

Underdogs88 (188) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2015
The yeast aromatics interact with the hops and it creates a weird aroma. Appearance is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Flavor is funky blend of piney hops and esters. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, the yeast esters clash with the hops and it creates a weird aroma and flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MartinT (8236) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Lemon zest allusions and herbaceous edges tickle this balanced and very refreshing wheat beer.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam decorates the shiny yellow haze.
-The mouthfeel is cuddly; not too dry, but super soft and easily poundable.
-Wheat creates bready connotations.
-You can almost imagine lactose in here.
-The hop character is harmonious with the rest of the beer and super refreshing (New World citrus allusions).

Bottles.

Cloudy straw colored beer with a thick pillowy bright white head. Nose of orange peel, lemongrass, and coriander. Flavor is bright with citrus, which gives way to a mild resinous bitterness followed by refreshing sour spice. Crisp and refreshing, this is a delicious beer that would be great on a hot summer day.
