COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With roots in two of today’s 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.

Strong aroma is wheaty and hoppy with a subtle undertone of citrus, the latter mainly orange. Pours a slightly hazy solar yellow with a fairly thick and fluffy eggshell head. Distinctive and satisfying flavor has good wheaty and hoppy notes as well as a malty and citrus undertone, like a superior wheat mixed with a superior IPA. Wheat beers are not my favorite, but I enjoy a good wheat beer, and I love hoppy beers. Smooth, fairly viscous texture has plenty of fizz and leaves a wheaty, fruity, hoppy finish. 80 acres or 32 hectares, an interesting and enjoyable beer.

Draft. Poured a hazy straw with a medium-sized, fluffy white head. Aroma was lemon, orange, moderately hoppy. Flavor is lots of citrus, some wheat, mild yeastiness. Surprisingly complex hop flavor. Spritzy on tongue. LIght to medium body. Very good.

Tap at T&P Tavern. Pours a hazy golden yellow color; almost orange. Very little head or carbonation. Aroma is candied sugar, sweet malt, hops and wheat. Flavor is sweet, fruity citrus, hoppy. Great finish. This is nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Best by 09/21/13. Beer pours out a cloudy golden color with a somewhat sticky head. Smells very great it smells like citrus hops, some piney hops, wheat, malt, vanilla and spicy lavender. Taste very citric and tangy, quite refreshing. The pallet in mouth feel is fine perhaps a tad thin. Overall a really nice hoppy wheat beer reminds me of perhaps what 312 was like years and years ago but with the more emphasis on the hops and a citrus refreshing character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow! I really liked this. Aroma of banana and hops. Flavor is classic wheat with banana and spice followed up with a dose of hops. The hops do not overpower the wheat characteristics, but amp it up and sit in balance. Finishes dry. Very nice for a hot summer day.

Hazy yellow with a nice lasting head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Compared to other wheat ales, the extra hop bitterness makes this beer special and unique. Clean finish with the urge to drink more.

Very interesting beer. The floral and citrus combined makes for a very interesting and tasty beer from Boulevard.

On draft at Rustico in Ballston. The beer is hazy and yellow with a half inch of pure white head. Aromas of citrus fruits, wheat, fresh hops. Refreshing and delicious. The wheat and big hop character work so well together. A great summer beer. Light in body and easy drinking. It would be easy to toss back a few pints of this.

12oz bottle thanks to RobertDale from the local for local 5 1/2 swap. Pours a cloudy pale straw color with 2 fingers of pillowy white head. Lots of sticky lacing. Aroma of wheat, sweet citrus, pineapple and lemon pulp, and plastic. Taste is of sweet pineapple juice, orange and lemon skins, wheat, and hints of grass and hay. Very crisp and refreshing. I’m really digging this beer! Thanks Bob!
