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.

DuffMan (9610) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
Bottle shared with Parksy. Hazy lemon yellow. Perfumey citrus aroma. Lovely delicate perfumey hop character, kafir limes, lemon, with a creamy wheat base and relatively low bitterness. More like a hopfenweisse. Beautiful, so drinkable!

A favorite everyday beer. Good by itself; great with food. Well-hopped, but balanced.

Bottle. Hoppy and cereal grain aroma. Malty taste with a citrus after taste. Very nice finish. This is a good beer for a cookout. Will have more.

ContemplateBeer (2008) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 21, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2016 12 oz. bottle from Liquor Barn (Middletown Commons). Aroma: The beer worldís answer to a Mimosa- orange juice hop character with a little balancing tang from the wheat, which is also lightly sweet. Appearance: Cloudy pale yellow with healthy carbonation holding up a foamy white head that settles into a sticky skin. Flavor: Juicy, tangy character melds up front with a little accompanying sweetness; malts dry out well and the finish has just a hint of bitterness. Palate: Light body, slick texture, average carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Really loved this; an ideal brunch beer, and definitely one that Iíll return to when the days get warmer and longer. Itís lightness of body makes this 5.5% beer very drinkable for the strength.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2013 Keg at KCBM 2011 competition. Hoppy for sure, this is all hops with a week backbone. It came off too astringent for my taste. The hops turned into a cleaning product instead. I like the idea, but I would like to get something from the base wheat beer. 7/3/6/3/14.

Oh, this needs a re-rate. The bottled product is much better. Damn great hop mix with a subtle background of light wheat beer.

Foamy head, hazy gold color with lots of lacing. Orange, grass, pine, cedar and cheese with moderate carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Quite good actually-not too sweet or bitter. Great hot weather beer.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 3, 2012
12oz bottle. They were all sold out at Flying Saucer, I see why...itís awesome! Stable, 1/2-finger head. Hoppy AND wheaty; Iíll buy THIS hybrid! Naysayers begone - this is way better than it sounds, amazing even. Kind of like salted caramel - it sounds funny, but tastes delicious. Itís exactly what it advertises, and he excels at it. Great full body, medium hoppyness and sweet wheatness!

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 12, 2012
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.
