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.

Excellent beer! Pours a slightly hazy gold with white head. Has a pine and citrus hop aroma. A sweet and smooth taste of citrus hops, pine and light malts. Not overwhelming at the end. Leaves a sweet taste at the end, but not too much.

Not at Gumballhead or Sumpin levels but a good hoppy wheat with grassy and lightly citrusy notes on a lean wheat body. Refreshing and tasty, and nothing like an IPA despite the hoppy inclination.

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.

Hoppy wheats if that is a word. Tiny plantable banana aroma with hop addition. Refreshing crisp wheat and flavor. Could have been nightmare but really good.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. The 80-Acre pours a cloudy golden yellow with a thick frothy ivory head that lasts and lasts. The aroma is citrus, wheat, floral and lemon. The flavor is lemon, citrus, floral and a bit of wheat. This is described as a hoppy wheat beer, but the hops are more prominent than I anticipated (not a bad thing). The beer is full of lively carbonation. Overall this is a very nice beer and one of the better wheat beers I’ve had.

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.

CanIHave4Beers (3942) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 21, 2012
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.
