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.

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.

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.

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.

Nice looking wheat beer. The head was two fingers and lasted forever, leaving sticky lace. The beer is pretty much like their regular wheat beer in color and clarity, tan and fairly cloudy. I suspect thereís overlap in the recipes, but not just from the appearance. The aroma is quite hoppy, also bready, with a little fruit and wheat too. Taste is a bit odd, but delicious. It really tastes like boulevard wheat with a bunch of hops in it. Itís got yeasty notes, wheat, citrus, grassy hops, malt, lots of good stuff in there. Body is typically wheat beer, light and easy to drink, but almost chewy with body. A lightly sweet, hoppy aftertaste denotes the finish. Itís definitely a very different beer, and I like it. Wonderful for summer laziness. Iíll definitely be drinking this one again. Great value too.

Light head, some yellow in the lacing. Hoppy smell with citrus, and a little tropical fruit. Hop character in the taste but a mouthful of breadiness, slight tartness. Finishes with a nice slight bitterness. Would drink again.

Bottle. Pours a glowing yellow green color with a large foamy head. Notes of lemon bars, fresh cut grass, green and floral hops, and citrus. Great balance and mouthfeel. I like it.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden color with a slight white foamhead. Aroma is fruity, and citrus. Very hoppy. A light wheat character. Medium body and a crisp carbonation. Good beer

Hazy yellow with a medium-sized, bright white head. Moderate spruce up front in the nose turns pleasantly fruity (peaches) and a touch yeasty with very mild banana phenols. The flavor is a rather nutty wheat with zesty orange and grapefruit hoppiness. The nutty, cracker-reminiscent wheat partnered with the moderate bitterness is quite delicious and something I havenít experienced to quite this degree before. Body is slightly sticky with light yet sharp carbonation. This greatly exceed my expectations.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a dissipating white head; leaves a skiff of foam and a little lace. Aroma consists of citrus powder drink, cooked vegetables (chilies?), catbox. Taste is a weird mixture of Bavarian Hefeweizen (clove) and IPA (citrusy hops). Weird isnít a bad thing in this case. Crisp and thirst-quenching. Highly carbonated and a bit foamy in the mouth. Very interesting and tasty.
