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.

[Bottle] Pours very pale gold with a small white head. Aroma has a blast of citrus up front, which unfortunately quickly fades, leaving behind just dusty wheat. Not that the wheat is bad in the aroma, but it would have paired nicely with sustained hoppiness. The taste has no off flavors, although the alcohol is noticeable as it warms. Not a whole lot stands out, as the taste is definitely malt-driven. A little lemon in the background, and mild bitterness. Very pleasant though. Thin mouthfeel, quite dry, and fairly short finish. Overall, a beer that I could drink a lot of, especially in the summer. In fact, the extreme sessionability of this beer is winning it some major points. However, this beer does fall well short of many of the New Glarus wheat beers I really love.

swesson (290) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2015
On tap at Ild Chicago in Wichita. Pours a golden wheat, which is to say cloudy and a thin white head and a bit of lacing. Aroma is of wheat and a touch of citrus and a bit of clove. Tastes lightly of hops and spice and citrus. A very good example of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Lowe1983 (1385) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Pours a cloudy golden color with a white head. Aroma is mostly grass tones with some sweet tones. Flavors is better with the earthy tones and some citrus hops. Overall better than I thought it would be.

Bottle, as pictured. Surprised to see this with a low rating. A bit of Belgian spice, light, easy to drink, little bit of hops.

Dogbrick (9366) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2015
ON draught at Winking Lizard. Pours a cloudy straw color with a medium white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of wheat, fruit and malt. Light-bodied with a fruity and wheaty character, with some grainy malt and hops in the background. The finish is grassy hops and wheat. Decent overall.

Slightly hazy yellow pour. Ephemeral white head. Moderate splotchy lacing. Nose is citrus and grassy hop, wheat bread, pale malt. Light and prickly mouthfeel. Some bready wheat, lemon drops, a little pine. Finishes dry and slightly resinous/ bitter. Ok.

pottygok (530) - Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Aroma: A sweet aroma, almost like honey, with hoppy floral notes. Appearance: Cloudy gold with a nice head that dissipates quickly. Taste: Light sweetness, but very faint. Palate: Light body, watery texture, soft carbonation, minimal finish. Overall: A very weak, watery beer. Not too thrilled.
