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.

Bottle. Cloudy golden pour with white head. Citrus and floral aromas lead the way with undertones of yeasty wheat bread dough. Refreshing taste with medium sweetness and just enough hops to keep it interesting. Crisp, clean, delicious. I donít normally care for wheat beers but this one is spectacular.

Crazy clean lemony intrusive aroma. Pillowy white head golden haz with some milky ness very simple but super enjoyable velvety citrus with offsetting sweet and slight bitterness. Not trying to be a homer but this beer when super fresh is at the absolute apex of session beers.

Iím not getting so much hops, but Iím getting tons of fruit sweetness, and by God this is a delicious beer. There is hops in the finish, but by then youíre so happy about the body that you couldnít care less.

Its combination of citrus, wheat and hops make a perfect blend for a fantastic beer. This is my go to beer for morning tailgates. You can drink this beer any time of day.

Hazy pale gold with a small tight rocky head. Nose was beautifully hopped, like fresh-picked wet hops with a grassy/floral/grapefruity nose on top of a subtle malty sweet undertone. Flavor brings a lot of the wheat forward with earthy wheat flavors sweetness, a bit of citric sweetness as well, with a lot of the same wet-hoppy tones from the nose...grassy, floral, and quiet not-too-acidic grapefruit. Bitterness was present and balancing though not too strong. Just sat exactly where it needs to be to accentuate the earthy sweet wheat flavors. Lovely.

It reminds me a lot of blue moon. It has strong notes of citrus on the front and a nice balance of hops.

Lager glass. Notes of lemon and hops, smells refreshing. Pours a cloudy gold/yellow with a thick foamy head, some lacing, good carbonation. Different taste then what I expected, its very drinkable. A bit of lemon/wheat at the front with a nice light hops taste at the rear. An excellent beer, really enjoyable.

A good mixed beer, easy to drink, has a nice hop and is sweet. Great beer to pass around and share with casual beer drinkers.
