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.

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!

Really good beer, I canít imagine a much better interpretation of a wheat beer mixed with an IPA - the result is delicious.

Unique flavor. The nose is instant fruit and hops. Oranges, grapefruit, lemons with the natural hop aroma following. Taste is a perfectly unfiltered wheat balance. Bubblegum, hops bitter with a crisp finish. On tap, pours a beautifully cloudy glass. Super unique!

Pours cream soda color. Itís cloudy, I love it!. Pretty nice thick and foamy head, decent lacing.

Aroma is grapefruit and citrus. Hops are pretty strong too. It really smells great!

I taste citrus right away, hops arenít as strong as expected and the wheat is stronger than expected. That great citrus aroma really adds to the flavor. Itís well balanced between sweet and bitter.

Mouthfeel is a toughie. Itís hoppy bitter finish, and wheaty aftertaste. Itís a medium-light mouthfeel.

Overall I was surprised, This is delicious. Thereís a lot going on within this beer, and itís great. Must try!!

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
