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.

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.

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 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

JMerritt (1903) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2012
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.

Unfiltered straw color pour with medium to light white head and no lacing. West coast hop aroma. Lots of citrus and some pine. I pick up some traditional wheat aromas as well. Some grassiness and some yeast esters. Highly carbonated. Pretty good balance between both styles. Most wheat IPA's are either too much wheat or too much ipa. This is a good mix. Estery, sweet, grassy malt character with citrusy and caramel pale ale character. Good refreshing beer. ---Rated via iPhone

The aroma reminds you of citrus hops and sweet bread yeast, and the appearance fuses a hazy golden color with a large white and frothy head. The taste is mildly bitter, slightly sweet, and a touch sour, and the palate combines a medium body, slick texture, an abrupt finish, and a soft carbonation.

Bottle into a fluted glass. Pours hazy yellow with a dense white pillow of head. Tropical fruit, grass, and spicy yeast on the nose. Taste is smooth and hoppy. Mango, pineapple, grass, spice. Real refreshing.

Bottle @ home thanks to jcnielsen. Thanks Justin! Pours a murky yellow, dull golden appearance with a fluffy white head. Fresh resinous, piney, dank hoppy, just a touch fruity aroma. Smells very nice but more like a strong IPA. I definitely donít detect gasoline like some others. Soft mouth feel. Spritzy lemon citrusy, a bit sweet but fairly dry, herbal, dank hoppy flavor. Super easy to drink but far hoppier than a typical wheat beer. Definitely need to pick up more of these in the future.
