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 and served in my smaller Ayinger hefe glass: Pours a tad hazy with a lovely frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma comes right out a says HOPS HERE! Resiny, grapefruit, mango, hint of leafy dank as it warms along with pale malt and wheat. The taste is moderately acidic and quite fruity over a soft layer of wheat and biscuit malt. Slight pepper and clove on the finish along with a touch of metallic notes. Overall this is more akin to an IPA than a Wheat Ale as we normally know it. Either way I found it quite enjoyable and quite refreshing. I need more!

Because I live in KC and hoped (hopped) Iíd have a home-grown version of 3F Gumballhead, Iím remiss to say that this brew tastes like blvd wheat with hops added just to call it a hoppy wheat. True believers take heart, and itís good but spoils go to the victors, not to play it safe brews.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle obtained through trade with queenholly. Pours bright hazy golden with small/medium white head which dies down. Fluffy white lacing, medium body, well carbonated, and estery aroma. Taste is citrus, rich, and estery. Hands down the best wheat ale I have had. Thank you queenholly and thank you Boulevard.

"Wheat Ale" although the label does say "wheat beer", but, whatever, it says, itís very flavorful, whichever. Wheat Beer is one of my sonís favorite beer-types (but first my beer THEN Wheat Beer) so I got a 6 pak. His reaction after his first quaff was "nice after taste". Iíve become a distant fan of Blvd.ís numerous recipie taskings and although I ainít from MO, itís been doing "Show Me" beer that keeps showing up in my brew cooler.

Pours hazy darker lemon with a beautiful creamy white head. The aroma brings sweet juicy oranges, soft but prevalent in the nose. The flavor brings sugary tangerine sweet notes, juicy on the tongue. The zest was smooth, in the background but appropriate and enhancing. Carbonation is excellent, which I feel Boulevard always does a great job on.

Pours a nice orange with white head. Smell is fresh and bright clean hops. Taste is bright clean hops. Crisp. Not much of a wheaty flavor. Would like a bit more wheat but still a nice beer.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2014 Bottle consumed during family reunion weekend at Jackpot Junction. An interesting hop and wheat combination from one of the best breweries running. Looks and pours like a traditional wheat beer but layers on the undertones of hop-ness. Refreshing, easy to drink beer. Well done, Boulevard. Well done.

What else can I really say the name describes it all a hoppy wheat ale. The hops are a little on the fruity sweet side that pairs well with the crisp wheat characters. I think this could set its own style of highly hopped wheat beers. I just donít want to call it IOWa.

A random pick at a restaurant that paid off sooooooooooooooooooooooo well. Pint at Panifico (great food try this place) Boston. Golden pour with a thick white head. Nose of cilantro, wheat malt, touch of soap. The taste is sweeter up front, lovely creaminess, cilantro grains of paradise? Very drinkable. Great beer!

Tasted at the Boulevard Tasting Room after a tour on December 17. Iím not a huge fan of the Boulevard Wheat, but this is a brew I can get behind. The extra hoppiness in this gives it a bigger flavor, while not going overboard on the bitterness. I canít wait until Boulevard actually releases this beer.
