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.

Sample at KC Hopfest 2011. Pours a cloudy pale yellow. Has an almost white appearance. Aroma of citrus and grass. Flavor is citrus, lemon, grass, wheat. Very easy drinking. Has the hoppy, citrus, aromas without the heavy bitterness. Quite good.

Pours a hazy yellow color with a good sized head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is big and pineappley, generally sort of citrus fruit forward, but clean with a little bit of the scent of fresh baked bread.

The flavor is hoppy and fruit forward, lots of pineapple and orange with a tiny bit of banana. Lots of pleasant bitterness and mild bubblegum are both nice characteristics even if they seem an odd combo.

Altogether bright and delicious.

(12oz bottle) cloudy light gold, soapy white bubbles. Nose of sweet candied hops, wheat, Marshmallow, orange pulp, rich. Taste of Wheat, light sweet citrus hops, candied orange, nothing over the top, refreshing, juicy stone fruit, I could drink this all the time in the summer.

Love the combo of hops and wheat! I could drink it in the summer and through the winter. I’m glad they make it all year long.

Pours a hazy straw color with a thin white head, decent retention and lacing. Nose doesn’t offer much (kinda pissy to be honest) but mouth is a different story. Crispy dry with some citrus (lemon, grapefruit) and piney notes, medium body and some bread towards the end. Reminds me a bit of Gumballhead, but definitely its own brew. Once again, yay BBC.

Bottle. Poured a cloudy yellowish color with a smaller white head. Plenty of lacing was left on the side of the glass as it went. Aroma was citrus, banana, spruce and grapefruit. Flavor was floral notes, with spices and citrus. Some hop bitters in the finish. The more I drink this beer the more I like it.

Finger of head. Cloudy, pale straw color. Smells like spruce and citrus. Like a Christmas tree with lemons on it. Interesting taste. I like it. Lots of citrus bitterness with an underlying soft wheat flavor. Low carbonation, medium and crisp body. The taste is pretty amazing.

12oz bottle, pours hazy yellow with big white head that when it disappears leaves spider webs and lacing down the glass. the aroma is pine and some citrus...the flavor is fantastic...piny resinous and some citrus blend mixed with the wheat and some bready yeast. why did i wait so long to taste this one. another great beer from boulevard.

Really like this combination of hop and wheat. Beautiful color and just the right balance. Not too much skewed toward the hop side. Great for the holiday season. Would buy again without hesitation.
