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.

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.

Pours a hazy straw color with a thin white head, decent retention and lacing. Nose doesnít 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.

Draft. Hazy golden pour. Nose is huge citrus, clove, light pine, honey. Flavor is strong citrus, unripened citrus, wheat with a lightly bitter finish. Great mouthfeel.

If I had had to choose between hoppy wheat or wheat, iíd choose the hoppy wheat. The hoppiness comes through in the aroma more than the taste. I dig

Bottled, poured into a Sam Adams glass. Aroma is hoppy citrus, very lemony. Cloudy yellow pour with a bright white head. Nice lacing. Lemony hop taste. Bready malt backbone. Nicely carbonated, very refreshing. One of my favorite session beers. A great combination of a refreshing wheat beer and a mildly hoppy ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy from my iPad.
